Hi guys! Starting the week with a hot hot trend – Flared Jeans with 70’s inspiration. I use the word “hot” quite literally as it was 106F this past weekend in LA…yeeep you read it correctly 100+6!!! It was quite the fever…*insert cheesy laugh*. I am beginning to think that we will completely skip fall and wake up to sweater weather one morning in the 60s.
Ok enough whining about the weather, lets talk fashion. I think I’ve mentioned to all of you guys before, I am not tall, 5’2″ without my heels. So naturally one of my pet peeves is appearing short in photos, and I’m sure no women like to look tiny or frumpy in a group photo setting. A trick that I like to use is elongate myself by wearing high waist pants or skirts. This automatically adds length onto your waist and stretches you a few inches; also by adding vertical stripes instead of horizontal ones into your look gives instant lift to height as well.
The recent reemergence of flared jeans is the perfect example of giving off the appearance of mile long legs in an instant. By wearing high waist flared jeans with platform heels that is covered by the bell bottoms, one can add at least 5 inches to their frame and also looking much thinner because your eyes are now forced to see vertically versus horizontally. Trendy, chic, thin, tall…all pluses in my fashion book. What do you guys do to make yourself looking “taller”?
