How to Dress if You Are Tall

Step 1 Try wearing a longer top to help visually shorten your legs.

Step 2 Wear pants with cuffs to ground and truncate your legs.

Step 3 Choose horizontal stripes over vertical ones; avoid pinstripes, for example, which will elongate your figure.

Step 4 Mix light and dark shades. Pairing a dark shirt with light pants, or vice versa, will shorten your body.

Step 5 Put on flat, rather than heeled, shoes.

Step 6 Pick clothes that have larger details ' wide lapels, buttons and other features. Delicate details such as small collars will make the body look large by contrast.

Step 7 Avoid dressing all in one color, which enhances height.
