  1. Hey RMRS,
    At a height of only 5’5″(165 cm), I definitely understand where you are coming from. While there aren’t necessarily ways that you can dress taller, there are certainly some things that can help and certainly things that you should avoid. The biggest thing and the absolute most important thing is do NOT wear baggy clothing. Clothing that is baggy and that doesn’t fit properly always makes you look shorter. That is the biggest thing. Another thing that you want to keep in my is try not to wear things that break up your visual appearance too much. A strongly contrasting belt for example can do this. Don’t take that to mean that you need to wear the perfectly coloured matching belt all the time, but something to keep in mind. One technique that I think works is to avoid wearing things with horizontal stripes, because it breaks up the clean visual line of your appearance.

    What I really recommend however is that you try fheading over the the Modest Man. His style blog is specfically geared towards shor
