Elongate Your Legs [Lookbook]
Looking for ways to accentuate your lower body and legs? Check out this lookbook to discover the secret strategies best for you!
Try a Pencil Skirt
If you’re plus-size, try a pencil skirt and a fitted skirt to elongate your legs and torso. Be sure to find the right fit- you want to be comfortable and cute
Don’t Cover Your Tush
If you are hoping to hide your hips or add height, don’t wear tops that are too long and cover your tush; they tend to shorten your legs.
Try a Straight-Legged Jeans
If you are trying to balance a large chest and hips with a narrow waist, finding comfortable jeans is a challenge. Straight-legged jeans work to smoothen out your body line while hugging your hips, so you can achieve an appeal that also stabilizes your frame.
Layer with Long Skirts
The wonderful thing about long skirts for women is that they lend themselves well to layering, which is perfect for the fall and winter season. To stay warm for the coming cold months, make sure for your closet is full of items you can easily layer with your maxi skirt. A plain T-shirt is a simple top to pair with your skirt. For a warmer addition, wear a cardigan, blazer or faux fur vest over the tee for a stylish yet comfortable appearance.
Wear the right length
Getting the length of your bottoms right is one of the best ways to slim down your overall appearance and create the illusion of thinner legs. For pants, this meaning opting for longer styles that extend past the bottom of your ankle, whether they’re slim-cut or wide-leg. For skirts and shorter capri-style pants, make sure they hit at the slimmest part of your legs. Look for skirts that end around the knee (or just above or below them) or underneath the calf muscle where the leg begins to narrow.
Max Out Your Look
Maxi skirts work well for women who are petite and straight shaped. They help appear taller and highlight the curves you do have. A mutli-patterned printed maxi will help lengthen the appearance of your body, which also makes you look thinner.
