2. Don a shorter hemline like Solenn Heussaff

The sultry actress knows a thing or two about looking long, lean, and sexy! Apart from her impressive health and fitness regimen, Solenn knows how to dress for her body, and how to flaunt it in a classy way. We take cue from Solenn as she dons shorter hemlines to make her legs look longer. This is far better than wearing a dress below the knees, which tends to make your legs short.

3. Show some skin like Anne Curtis

The "Annekulit" concert queen Anne Curtis may be adventurous when it comes to fashion, but one thing she makes sure of is that she looks taller than she actually is. In this outfit, she shows off some skin in the right places to make her frame look longer. Exposed shoulders add more height to her otherwise petite frame. (Expert tip: take photos from a low angle too, to make your #OOTDs appear taller!)
