Step 1: Get horizontal Break up your long vertical silhouette with horizontal lines -- stripes; thick belts, especially in a contrasting color; shoulder details, and waist-length jackets. Tip If you have a boyish figure, choose jackets that nip in at the waist to create an hourglass figure. Step 2: Stand tall Wear kitten heels, which are slim heels one and a half inches to two inches tall; they make legs look better than flats. Avoid chunky shoes with thick heels. Step 3: Tuck it in Tuck shirts into pants to create a visual break between your legs and your torso. Tucking pants into boots also looks good on tall women. Step 4: Skirt the issue Wear skirts that end above or at the knee. If you like a longer skirt, choose one that's flared to prevent a stick-straight vertical line. A-line dresses work for the same reason. If you wear a pencil skirt, team it with a blouse in a contrasting color. Tip Got mile-high legs? Team a short skirt with knee-high boots. Step 5: Get a leg up If you have a long torso, shorten it with high-waisted trousers. If you've got long, toned legs, show them off in skinny jeans. Tip Wear regular-length pants as cropped pants. Step 6: Use prints to your advantage Use big prints and bright colors to your advantage: Wear them on top to distract from a bigger bottom half; wear them below to downplay a generous bosom. Did You Know? At 7-foot-7, Sandy Allen of Shelbyville, Indiana held the title of tallest woman in the world until her death in 2008.
