How To Look Taller In Flats

A Short Skirt or Dress

Okay, so I am going to ease you into this with the simplest option of the bunch here. Since this skin-showing style already makes legs look, well, leggier, you don't need worry about taking extra steps to stretch your proportions. Pretty much any kind of flat shoe will work: oxfords, sneakers, sandals—whatever! Just go for whichever you like best because there's not an unflattering choice out there.

Despite the many superiorities that flats have over heels (mainly comfort, yes, but also all these things here), stilettos, pumps and wedges do have one mathematically airtight advantage: wearing a pair literally makes you taller. Still, even if slipping into some loafers, sneakers or ballet slippers won't bring you any closer to Karlie Kloss' inseam, there are sneaky ways of faking the same effect. Follow my advice below on exactly what kind of flats with wear with what kinds of bottoms and you'll always look a little longer and leaner than you actually are.
