The Lies Of The Lines 3: Looking Taller

 

BEST TRENDS FOREVER LIES OF THE LINES LOOKING TALLER

And so, you are, like, 5' something and that cute guy in your psychology class is, oh, 6.1' and so you think to yourself what's the girl to do to? Super high heels? Check. Confidence? Check. Now what about a dress?


It is a Friday night and it is a perfect night to go out and you decide to bear some shoulder skin to look as sexy as possible. Good move? Before we jump into any conclusions, let's take something else into consideration and for that I invite you to take a look at the diagram below. Which one of the rectangles below appears shorter and wider and which one appears taller and slimmer (no peaking at the answer below the diagram)?

Whether you are a trained stylist or not, rectangle "B" is the one that would always look taller and slimmer to a typical person's eye. The illusion is created as a result of two diagonal lines arising from the center making your entire dress appear taller and, as a result a person wearing it will also appear not only taller, but slimmer as well. Now look at the illustration of a girl wearing two different types of dresses below. Which one of the girls appears taller?

 In spite of the fact that the height of both photos was adjusted in photoshop to be absolutely the same, girl "B" looks a little bit taller. The moral of the story here is this. Sometimes, the clothing that you think makes you look sexy,often, makes you look a bit shorter at the same time. Keep that in mind next time you are getting ready to go out and good luck on getting that tall cute guy from your psychology class.
