Happy Wednesday, friends!
I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I have short legs. (OK, fiiiiiine. It’s probably not that much of a secret.) My torso goes on for days, but my legs are short. Like…really short.
Naturally, I’ve spent a good portion of my life researching ways to make my legs look longer. The good news? There are tips, and I’m going to share them with you. It’s just what I do.
While the clothes are important (natch), it’s really all about the shoes. These Rockport Sandals from Zappos are SO cute and comfortable, and help my legs look longer. Isn’t that really all a girl needs? (I mean, other than some coffee and dark chocolate).
Zappos has been my go-to for shoes for years. Not only is their selection amazing, but I love how easy it is to shop. If I can shop in my pajamas at 10pm, I’m all about it.
Do you have any tips for making your legs look longer? Share the wealth, please! I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for stopping by, sweet friends!
5 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR LEGS LOOK LONGER THIS SUMMER
TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT.
I’m a big believer in tucking in shirts. I’ve even been known to tuck in a flowy tank into my leggings. If it’s not a button down shirt, I will just tuck in the front and leave the bak out. Or, go with the half-tuck. Either way, make sure to tuck in the front of your shirt! It’ll stop your shirt from cutting you off and make your legs look short.
ADD A LITTLE HEIGHT.
These Rockport sandals have the perfect heel height. They add just the right amount of height to wear with cut-offs this summer, without feeling like you’re wearing heels with shorts, because that can be a tough look to pull off. These are just perfect.
WEAR NUDE SANDALS.
A nude sandal is your best friend this summer, and my sandals are perfect. The color of these sandals is SO pretty, and work so well with my tan. I can’t get enough. Nude sandals really help elongate your legs.
SHOW SOME LEG.
This might be obvious, but girls: don’t be afraid to show those gams! The more leg you show, the longer they’ll look. And while you may not feel comfortable rocking the short shorts, don’t be afraid to take that hemline up a bit.
GO FOR HIGH-WAISTED SHORTS.
Not only are high-waisted shorts a mom’s best friend (hey, little postpartum pooch that doesn’t ever go away), but they really do make your legs look longer.
