1. Stay Away from Wearing Baggy Clothes
It does not mean that baggy clothes will look good only on taller people rather the reality is that baggy clothes make you look pretty careless, sloppy and sluggish. It really does not belong to your body. If shorter men are wearing baggy clothes, viewers will automatically get to focus their shorter frame in their baggy clothes and you really don’t want that to happen. Rather you need to dress yourself wisely and need to ensure that you’re wearing clothes that can fit you well. For this purpose, you need to focus on your clothes’ designs and cuts carefully.
2. Avoid Pleats and Cuffs
Shorter men should be focusing on getting long and lean lines instead of getting pleats and cuffs which can make them look even shorter.
3. Avoid Off the Shelf
As you’re trying your best to look taller and slimmer, it's not a good idea to go for readymade clothing. For this purpose, you need to get your clothes custom made by an expert tailor, who knows your size and design your clothes accordingly. For instance, you can let him make your sport coats, suits and jackets that can fit you well. It can take some time but it’s gonna be worth waiting for shorter men.
4. Avoid Focusing only on Dark or Light Colors
You need to mix and match the colors as shorter men have to depict their upper body in a better manner. For this purpose, you can get yourself darker colors for your bottom and lighter colors for your upper body wear. It won’t only make your upper body more visible but you will also have the opportunity to experiment with different colors and combinations.
5. Avoid Horizontal or Broad Patterns
For shorter men, vertical patterns such as vertical stripes would be perfect to make them look taller rather than going for horizontal or broad patterns which can make you look shorter.
6. Carrying Extra Weight
If you have a relatively short height, you should be extra careful about your body weight as a little extra weight can make you look extra fat in any dress. You have to maintain your body fat not only in terms of your waist size but also in terms of your height as shorter people look fat even after a little weight gain.
7. DON’T wear shoes with thick soles to look taller
A Thick sole is in fact a marketing gimmick for shorter people to think that they would look taller in them. However, the reality is that thick soles are out of fashion, so you need to make your choices carefully. For instance, you can use a little stylish heel to look taller but you should get an appropriate posture in these shoes. Similarly, you can also try different kinds of clothing combinations with your shoes to make your small stature a little bigger. For instance, if you’re wearing black jeans with skinny jeans, it will make you look better and a little taller than you actually are.
Wearing a narrow pointed shoe can help to elongate visually the length of your body, making a person appearing taller.
