About the video
Many short women wish they wear taller, but what if I told you that you can look taller instantly just by the clothes you wear? In this video, I tell you how you how.
I’m fairly short myself and I know what’s its like to wish I was taller. There is nothing I can do about that, but I can choose to wear clothing that suits my small frame and make me look taller than I am and so can you.
I’m going to share with you my top secret tips to dressing yourself tall.
Wear short length dresses and skirts: Dresses that are shorter make your legs appear longer. If you don’t like your legs, wear tights or leggings underneath or opt for an over the knee boot.
Wear high waisted pants: This works like wonders to make your legs appear longer than they are. You can take this look further by adding a slight heel and tucking your tops into your waistband.
Wear slim leg, bootleg or wide leg trousers with a heel. Slim leg pants will cover part of the shoe, giving you a longer line. If you wear wide leg or bootleg pants or jeans, the flare will cover the heel and no one will be the wiser.
When wearing ankle boots with jeans, either tuck them in or fold them just above. The eye is a funny thing, it goes to where there is skin and can shorten your look.
Avoid anything ¾ length. Contrary to popular belief, this is going to make you look shorter than you are.
Wear nude shoes. This makes it look like your foot is an extention of your foot. Choose a shoe close to the colour of your skin or even a metallic for a trendy look.

Yes the eye goes to skin, plus any band of a contrasting light color cuts us off. Thank you so much for addressing the fashion needs of us short women! 🌻💛🤗
I don't want to look taller, just elegant, flowing, streamlined & well-dressed!

"Wear a short dress", you say. But what to do when you are very very short with very short and fat legs and thighs and "ugly" knees, and do not at all feel comfortable in short dresses and skirts? I use only dresses and skirts in knee-length or just below my knees. That way I feel comfortable and can move around more freely without being bothered by showing off my "ugly" and fat legs. Do I look even shorter and fatter with knee-length dresses and just below knee length? :`(
Thank you so much, Tracy Gold for your reply! I am very happy to hear about the knee length and just below the knee skirt length! I have watched a few of your videos, they are great! Especially the one about hiding a big belly. But I do everything wrong being a "shortie", wearing baggy, oversized clothes looking like a tent or lampshade, but they make me feel comfortable and relaxed! Thank you for making great videos with great tips also for short women! : )
Hey fab gal. Thanks for your questions. As I mentioned in the video, if you like your legs and knees go short. If not, you can wear on or just below the knee. Just don't wear anything 3/4 as that will make you look shorter. To further elongate your legs, wear a nude shoe. This makes your shoe look like an extension of your foot, making your legs appear longer. I have more videos on this topic. Here is the list to the playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nf26OueYogw&list=PLidUYDwQ9EMxy0FGcGVXSJSxIkz0CBMq5
Great tips! you mention several ways to make legs look longer, because longer legs make you look taller. Some short women, however, do not have short legs but are instead short waisted. My longer legs are probably the reason most people don't realize until they stand next to me how short I am. In my case, higher waisted pants look silly, so I tend to like the waist lower and to wear longer tops to elongate my torso.

What about for women over 50 about 5’1” like me who wears extra large clothes? I have big legs and I am not comfortable wearing above the knee dress. I have a bit of big belly and I love to wear dresses but quite a bit disappointed due to my extra large size.

Hi Ivalo. I wear quite a few in this video. You can check out my online store. I design exclusive pieces in small quantities, so the colors and patterns change often. https://www.tracygoldfashiontips.com/shop/
id like to see tips for petite gals with short torsos. the space between my ribs and hips is short and I have longer legs by comparison. finding tops that fit is difficult. I'm a L in petite US sizes but basic stretchy top from target must be a size xs or its WAY too long. I could even go smaller.

Nope, you ain't alone. I was thinking the same thing: what to do if you're short, squishy and "experienced". Right now, I just make sure everything fits properly and don't rely on that shit that they sell for "plus sizes" that look like tents.
I'm small (5'4" and 117 pounds) but I have chubby knees. I'm not sure tights would cover them up, so I never buy shorter skirts! Maybe I just need to try on a shorter dress with tights, or find one to wear with my light cognac over-the-knee boots???!!!
Tracy Gold Fashion Tips - Today I found some leggings that are thin like a thicker pair of tights like you said...I think they're going to work with boots! Thank you so much for the advice, Tracy! I'm loving your channel. ❤️
Hi Tracy! I'm 5'5-1/4 but I've always admired women's height of 5'7", maybe because the longer a body measures, the more stretched out the weight distribution seems to make a femme appear more slender somehow regardless of how much she may actually weigh.
Anyhoo, I'm really feeling the designs you adorn yourself with. And your tips are always helpful. Admittedly, I'd much rather have been a mathematical or science brainiac; instead I have a beautifully creative and artistic mind. So much of your advice really either reinforces, heightens or wakes up my sense of style since thankfully we "ar'tists" all have varied points of views. Each time I watch one of your presentations a "ahaaa" fashion light bulb turns on in my head. Thanks!!!
Hey! Did you get my email address? I entered it into the box as indicated on the site of the link that you had included in our last video chat.

Morning. Is this your email address? [email protected] . No I replied to your email directly as I received your 'Have Tracy contact you. Maybe try emailing me directly on [email protected] So annoying when technology doesn't work.
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
