Garments with a horizontal striped print will make you look wider, so most women reject this type of print from the start.

In the opposite case,  the vertical rats have the property of making the figure look slimmer and taller.

 

So, its use is recommended for people of short stature and thus adds a few extra centimeters visually.

 

Footwear of the same skin tone

 

It is a way of giving continuity between the foot and the leg, making the latter look visually longer. Since there is no color cut between one and the other, this lengthening effect will happen, so it is a trick for short women too.

V-neck

If your body is in the shape of an inverted triangle or you have a wide back, this type of neckline is ideal.

 

However, it works well for almost all body types; its effect is that it makes the neck look much longer.

 

Depending on the kind of V-neckline you select, it can also stylize the bust if it is large. If you want to look more stylized, wear it with a garment fitted at the waist for total success.

 

The contrast between light and dark

 

The garments, which present contrasts between plaid and dark colors, are ideal for simulating curves and giving a sensation of wasp waists and hourglass-type figures, making the silhouette look much more defined and beautiful.

You can opt for monochrome or dress in a single color and thus create the illusion of a taller and slimmer silhouette. You can also include garments such as maxi dresses, pants, and shoes of the same color that give continuity to the leg. And, of course, high shoes that help stylize.

 

Hide wide hips

 

Wear straight-cut pants and long jackets that cover the hips, avoiding side pockets at all costs. Large prints, horizontal lines, and gathered or textured fabrics.

 

Reduce big bust

To visually reduce this type of bust, use a V-neckline that is not very pronounced.

 

With small or minimalist prints and loose fabrics with movement.

 

Avoid completely closed blouses with gathered fabrics, such as bows or others in the front area, necks, turtle type, crop tops, elastic fabrics, drapes, and ruffles.

 

Increase small bust

This is the opposite of the previous case; consequently, the use of crossed tops at the front is recommended.

 

Wear the correct bra size, and use light colors, shirts, and blouses with ruffles and pleats, horizontal stripes, large prints, and large necklaces and necklines. Avoid tight clothing and dark colors.

 

Accentuate the waist

 

For this case, use high-waisted pants. A matter of making a cut in this area and defining it.

 

Increase the buttocks

You can go for pants that have triangle-type seams on the back that lift or those that have small pockets. And also wear high-heeled shoes to lift it.

 

Short stature

 

In addition to talking about the same knitting tricks to look taller. You can also incorporate dresses, high-waisted skirts, short jackets, and 3/4 sleeves, avoiding wearing an outfit of different cuts that will make you look smaller.

 

Short neck

 

The idea is to lengthen the neck visually, so using a V-type neckline is again recommended. However, otherwise, you can opt for a torture neck that will shorten it immediately.

 

Low Rise

When it comes to the low-rise pants, not everyone is a fan. Since, low rise highlights the waist and belly, whereas high-waisted pants help hide the extra weight, if you have any, of course.

 

So, if you decide to go with a low-rise to give you a Y2K banger outfit, then, you can choose to pair it with a crop top to further make your waist the star of the outfit or pair it with an oversized blouse, t-shirt or a jacket to elongate the torso. This look will depend on your taste, because it is not everyones cup of tea, like we mentioned above. 

 

Getting that figure and the desired image should not give you a headache. By using our guide of optical illusion, you can dress in a way that makes you look excellent, proportionate, and spectacular!
