So I am six feet (okay, 5′ 11″ and 7/8ths), I play around with heels, but I don’t wear them that much due to the extra height really messing with the image. Height makes you stand out, sure, but there are some tips (borrowed from several sites):
- Full and wide skirts. Increasing the width makes the height less noticeable, flared skirts and dresses help
- Break up the colors. A long strip of color from top to bottom is easy to make it look taller, breaking it up with a different colored top, a sharp contrasting belt, breaks visual continuity and makes it look more like two different shorter objects rather than one long one.
- Don’t Slouch. Slouching makes you look shorter, but it also makes it obvious you are hiding your height. Kind of standing out by trying to hide.
It is important to note the tallest woman in the world is recorded at 7’7″ and several famous movie actresses are over 6′.
