5 Fashion tips to make you look taller

Written by Jay

There seems to be a consensus that tall men are smarter than those who are short. That’s one reason why boys or men try to look taller or try things that give themĀ the edge, or inch.

Here are a few tips that do not involve taking a certain diet to look tall, just a few tweaks to your wardrobe and you might just look a few inches taller than you really are.

This might sound like a minor detail and it’s something one should be very particular about. Make sure that the details on the upper part of your body look sharp. These include your tiepins, sunglasses, hats, pocket squares etc.

These ‘little’ details can add to your length, virtually though.

Keep it small

Keeping it small will actually make you look big. Everything from tie width, tie knot, cuffs and even the collars should be small or thin or average.

Keeping all these small make you look bigger and avoids the small features.

V will take you up

Wearing V-neck T-shirts or jumpers makes your neck look longer. It’s similar to what a suit does to you. It draws those eyes up rather than down, thus creating a virtual difference in height.


The suit though, because of its shape, creates the V for you thus making the difference.

Wearing the same colour throughout streamlines the body and the constant colour doesn’t break the flow of the body which is somewhat broken by the change in colour.

What wearing a single colour does is it allows people to scan through your body in one go without any break which would be caused by different colours.

The Darker, The Better.

The final jigsaw in the puzzle is hidden in your body and not in the wardrobe.

Along with those minor tweaks to your wardrobe, taking a proper diet and taking a proper 6-8 hours of sleep, keeping your posture straight and correct is the most natural way to increase your height.

This is the final point you will read but make sure this is the first thing you correct from tomorrow to look taller.


  1. Belts; Add a sudden break and does not allow people to scan your body in one go.
  2. Short-sleeve shirts; make your shorter limbs accentuate.
  3. Long shirts; Tuck them in or choose a different one. Don’t make your legs look any shorter
