Anusha Jain answered
Hello Neha, you deserve looking pretty and flawless at your wedding. A few fashion tactics gives the illusion of looking tall. Put an end to your worry and look fabulous with our tips.
Tip #1: Monochromatic
Instead of choosing multicolored outfit go for an outfit with just one color. Monochrome creates a vertical lines of color and gives the illusion of being taller.
Tip #2: A-line Silhouette
Opt for an outfit with A-line silhouette as that would make you look taller. Don’t add too much volume to the lower part of the body. So go for a less poofy gown or lehenga.
Tip #3: Ombre
Choose an outfit in which there is blending of two colors usually light to dark. Try keeping the darker color at the top. And lighter color below – from the waist down.
Tip #4: Color Palette
Go for lighter color shades like the daisy pink, moss blue, sea green, etc. These colors would go with your complexion and make you look beautiful in the photos, too!
Tip #5: Front Slit
Choose for an outfit with slits at the front as they would add vertical lines, giving the illusion of height. Try outfits with floor length or knee length, but not ankle length as they would make you look petite. For example, floor-touching jackets over gowns.
Opt for Indo-western suits, lehengas, gowns and saree lehengas.
- Avoid adding volume to the upper body like shoulder pads and anything that is poofy.
- Avoid wearing dark colors.
- Avoid outfits with horizontal lines.
