HOW TO FAKE: LONGER LEGS

HOW TO FAKE: LONGER LEGS

So you can “bend and snap” all day long!

By Amber Lowther | 2nd September 2016

Spring is just around the corner! If you want to bust out in your best leggy kit, check out the seven ways you can make your legs look longer!

Nude heels

A heel in a shade similar to your skin tone will disguise where your foot begins and make your legs look miles long. Wear with a skirt or high-waisted shorts to get the most out of this look. Just make sure you avoid ankle straps AT ALL COSTS! They’re no friend of yours, gf!

High-waisted

Wearing anything high-waisted will make it seem like your waistline sits (surprise!) higher and your legs will look like they’re never-ending. Tuck your shirt in for legs that go up to your lovely lady lumps. You can thank me later. I accept flowers and chocolate.

High Waisted

Wide-leg pants

I recently invested in a pair of flares and I’ll NEVER GO BACK! They make me look like I’m on stilts (but not as awkward) and they sweep the floor like I’m on a runway. Make sure you wear them with heels to get the effect you want.

Over-the-knee boots

The winter weather hasn’t quite disappeared so over-the-knee boots are still very much in vogue. But they actually make your pins look like they go on for dayssss, elongating the leg without minimal effort. Wear with a skirt for a sexy look!

Vertical lines

Stripes are love, stripes are life. Wearing vertical lines on your bottom half will not only draw attention to your oh-so-length legs, it will actually trick people into thinking there’s more length than there really is.

Wear a dark shade head-to-toe

If you’re a fan of black-on-black-on-black, you’ll be thrilled to know that wearing it uninterrupted can make your legs appear longer! Any darker shade when worn head-to-toe will make you stand out and it will be hard to tell where your legs start and end. The darker the colour, the more effective!

Cropped jacket

Cropped jackets make your torso appear shorter and shift the primary focus to your legs. Just like with high-waisted items, a change in cut will have your legs looking longer for sure.

BONUS TIP: Use shimmering body oil on your pins to make your skin glow. Plus, it also looks amaaaazing in photos!
