How to Look Tall in Women's Tops? | 5 Style Tips

Many women desire to appear taller as it can have a positive impact on their confidence and overall appearance. While height is something we can't change(though sometimes it may be possible through unethical means) , we have the power to influence other’s perception of our height through clothing choices. In this blog, we will explore five latest tops for women that can help you look taller.

#1: The Right Fit

Choosing tops that fit well and flatter your body shape is crucial in creating the illusion of height. To achieve this, it is essential to know your accurate measurements and understand your body proportions. If you wear tops that are too tight, it can attract unwanted attention to your torso and make you feel shorter and more conscious about your body. If you have a heavier chest, choose a top that ensures your body imperfections are camouflaged. If you want to wear a pair of jeans, you can even choose a top that hides your waist to give you a taller look.

For instance, many women have opted for this simple geometric designed kurti that comes in various sizes to fit you well. It hides your waist, giving the illusion of a longer silhouette.  What’s more, this unique printed top design allows you to pair it with any bottoms and accessories for a timeless and trendy look.

Another option is this yellow geometric tunic top that contrasts well with any jeans or other bottoms. Its simple zigzag pattern allows you to wear it with any random jeans, especially if you are getting ready in a hurry.

# 2: Necklines and Collars

The right neckline and collar can make a significant difference in creating the illusion of height. V-neck tops, in particular, are highly recommended as they draw the eye vertically and elongate the upper body. Additionally, scoop necks, boat necks, and mandarin collars can also be flattering choices for those looking to create a taller appearance.

You can consider these pocket-friendly V-neck tops that go with any jeans or pants. The timeless white floral print used here is just what you need when it comes to creating a lasting impression.

This simple light blue hued peplum top can help you look your best and give you a taller appearance, especially if you choose to wear a dark coloured pair of jeans.

# 3: Vertical Details

When selecting tops, pay attention to the presence of vertical details. Fashion designers have used vertical lines for ages to elongate the silhouette and make you appear taller. Tops with vertical stripes or vertical pleats can work wonders to give you a simple, elegant and professional look at work. These details draw the eye up and down, giving the illusion of added height.

Based on your feedback, we’ve created unique top designs that allow women of all body shapes to look their best always. This one comes in the traditional mehendi colour that goes well with any jeans or trousers.

For a casual look, you can always opt for this A-line top that gives you an elongated silhouette. Swap your jeans for a pair of palazzos to up your glam look!

# 4: Sleeve Length and Style

The length and style of the sleeves can also impact how tall you appear. Tops with shorter sleeves or sleeveless styles are recommended as they lengthen the arms visually, making your upper body seem longer. However, these are best avoided if you have flabby arms. Instead, you could consider three-quarter sleeves or extended shoulder details that can add height to your overall look.

Here are two contrasts that work based on your body shape.  If you are plus sized, this striped, full sleeved top gives a professional vibe while taking attention away from your height.

On the other hand, if you are petite, this ditsy printed sleeveless top allows you to carry yourself with grace with your outfit attracting more attention than your height. Add a dose of glamour to this look by pairing this with a jacket, stole or some minimalist jewellery.

# 5: Proportional Balance

Creating a proportional balance is key to achieving an elongated appearance. To achieve this, pair your tops with bottoms that create a seamless vertical flow. For instance, high-waisted bottoms, such as pants or skirts, can help create the illusion of longer legs. This, in turn, enhances your overall height. Avoid dividing your body into separate sections with contrasting colours or heavily contrasting prints as it can make you look shorter.

Instead, you can opt for flared tops that help hide your imperfections and highlight your style instead. This top, for instance, comes in a unique design that can be worn with any jeans or bottoms for a mesmerizing look.

Alternatively, you can also opt for a longer top-up to the thighs that give you the illusion of height while giving you a comfortable fit.

Although a carefully selected top can help you give your body a proportionate look, you can also consider buying a few readymade kurtis to enhance your styling options.


While we can't change our height, we can certainly enhance our appearance by making smart choices in clothing. By incorporating these style tips into your wardrobe, you can create a taller and more elongated look. Empower yourself to embrace your unique style and always keep your eyes open for the latest designer tops from Fashion Dream that you can use for your everyday style.
