Whether you’re tall or short, you should always wear clothes that properly fit your body. Baggy and loose clothes will make you appear wider than you actually are. Therefore, you should avoid wearing loose fitted clothes. 

2. Wear the right shirt size

Long shirts will make your lower body look short. On the other hand, short and mid-sized shirts will help in creating an illusion of leg length and overall height. Therefore, you must avoid wearing long shirts. 

3. Go for smaller patterns

Larger patterns are more suitable for tall men. They may not suit a man with a short height. If you want to appear taller and elongate your physique, you must avoid wearing big and bold patterns. Large-scale patterns will take away that attention from you. So, stick to small patterns and step-up your style game.

4. Wear monochromated or similar shades clothes

Adding little details and accessorizing can take your style game to another level. However, make sure that you are not wearing too big accessories. You can add accessories to your upper body to draw attention and create an illusion of the height. You can wear hats, glasses, pocket squares, and tie pins. Keep it balanced and don’t over-accessorize.

6. Say no to belts, waistcoats, and long hair

Belts will divide or cut your body in halves, which will make you look even shorter. It will be ideal to go beltless. However, if you still want to wear a belt, keep it slim. You should not choose a belt that is thicker than 1.5 inches. 

Similarly, waistcoats will draw attention to the middle section of the body and will make you appear shorter. Avoid keeping long hair as it will hide your neck and make you look short and less stylish. Keep your hair nicely trimmed. You can go for more volume on top to add more inches. 

7. The right shoes
