LOOK TALLER - by Editor

First of all, let me begin by saying that being short does not go against the concept of 'beauty' as defined by society. It is absolutely fine to look short. Shorter people are cute, cuddly and come across as lovable and huggable! Good things do come in small packages. However, if you feel you would still like to add a few more inches to your height, don those three-inch stilettos and read on.

Monochrome outfits

Opt for a single coloured outfit. Don't try and pair a blouse with contrast trousers, as once a colour break is introduced it cuts down your height, making you look shorter. A single colour from top to bottom adds to the illusion of height. You could add a second colour to your ensemble by accessorizing it. Wear a scarf around your neck or carry a contrasting handbag. Add still more pizzaz to your monochromatic outfit by contrasting fabrics and textures. Blue denim with a blue satin blouse, brown leather pants with a brown chiffon blouse.


Wear a scarf with one end hanging down. This makes you look taller. If you wear a jacket or cardigan, wear it unbuttoned to add to the vertical and lengthening effect. Similarly, chose long necklaces over chokers, hanging earrings and loops over studs. Big belts appear to cut you in half and make you look shorter, so you should best avoid them. Wear heels.

Match your shoes to your trousers, not to your top. Nothing adds height more than wearing a pair of shoes exactly the colour of your trousers. Doing this elongates the legs. If you are wearing black trousers with a white top, which we have already told you is a bad idea, you may be tempted to wear white shoes. True, it goes with the look, but remember, we are trying to make you look taller and black heels will do the job far better than white stilettos. Similarly, match the hue of your stockings to your skirt or pant.


Any strips on your outfit should be vertical, not horizontal. Vertical stripes not only make you look taller, but they make you look slimmer as well. Thus if you are top heavy and have a big bust, you could wear a top with vertical stripes, while if you want your hips to look slimmer, you could wear striped pants. Thankfully colourful striped pants are very trendy, so invest in a pair.


Add height to your tresses. Wearing your hair up in a ponytail or bun makes your neck look longer and is a better idea than wearing your hair loose, and the higher your ponytail, the better it looks. If short hair suits you, cut it off to above your ears � but once again, only if it suits you! The idea is for you to look tall so you can look better, not worse! Not many women can carry off short hair, so if you can, go for it! Essentially, if short and long hair both look good on you, go for short. Similarly v-neck tops make your neck look longer, consequently making you look a little taller.


If you are even a little overweight, you will look plumper and shorter. Tall people can carry off excess fat with no one noticing, but unfortunately shorter people cannot. The good news is, if you shed a little weight, you 'gain' a little height as well, so if you can lose a few more pounds, do so. If you are slim enough, don't lose any more weight. Looking too skinny ruins the 'cute' factor of being short!


Wear skirts that are longer in length than in width. Alternatively, pair a long jacket with a mini.

And finally, the most effective tip of all, hang out with people shorter than you!

Comments:   Osteoarthritis of the knee is more frequent after the age of 50, but can occur at any age. On occasion, it is precipitated by an injury, but more commonly it occurs as a result of a lifetime of wear and tear. It can lead to a great deal of disability, interfering with mobility, increasing the risk of falls, contributing to deconditioning of the muscles, and markedly impairing quality of life.
