[Episode 2: Taller & Chic at 5’1’’]
So, today’s another installment of my how to look taller series.
Really, it’s a lot bigger than that.
Like, there’s just different things that I can do
to take an outfit that looks maybe a bit plain
and transforming it to be a little bit more chic,feminine
and fits like my personal style
Again, this is all like my body style
my personal tips for what I do every day
当然 每个人的风格不同 品味也不同
Of course, everybody’s different has their own taste
But overall, I think that these tips can help a lot of people
and make you feel a little bit more confident
on a day to day basis with your outfits
So, let’s get started
So for the first outfit
I’m wearing a bunch of different things that I really like.
But I’m just wearing them kind of like in a mix
that I typically wouldn’t.
I have a new navy shirt
for anybody who watched my last taller video
which I can link.
I would just use Zac’s navy shirt.
So, I actually bit the bullet and
bought my own navy shirt this time for an example.
And then also I’m just wearing a typical pair of jeans
that you know aren’t, they probably could be tailored.
They’re kind of like dragging the ground a bit.
And then also I just have some like sandals on.
That are kind of typical.
So this is kind of the outfit that I would have worn for summer.
Quite a few years ago, like a lot of times I would hear,
’Well, you look like you’re 12 years old.’
[laughing out loud]
And so that’s really not the look that I personally was going for,
like I wanted to look more age-appropriate.
I think this is a good example
of how just a few tweaks to this outfit
could look a lot more like age-appropriate
and just taller and leaner
So, my No.1 tip is always to tuck in your shirt
especially with my body style being that I have shorter legs and a longer torso
this just kind of evens out the proportions
and just makes it look like I have longer legs in a shorter torso.
And next, since these are like a longer pair of jeans,
I’m just wearing them with a pair of heels.
I was actually gonna get these pants tailored,
But I ended up liking how they look with heels
and I kinda like the idea of having one pair of jeans that fits for like a taller shoe.
So, this not only gives me a little bit extra height,
but it makes my pant legs not drape on the ground,
giving me like a longer-like look.
所以 就这身穿搭 我觉得在夏天的话
So, for this outfit, I just felt like,
it would be a little bit more fun in summary to put my hair up.
And I think that that’s actually a good look for this outfit.
And by pulling up my hair,
it actually lengthens my body even more,
which is actually a tip that a lot of you guys gave
with my last taller video,
and after you said it, I was like,
’Oh, yeah. Totally. That makes sense.’
So, that was really helpful.
Another tip that I have, that I always do
is I load up on brass and gold jewelry.
So, in this outfit, I’m wearing a few different necklaces.
And then, also, I always like to wear a lot of rings.
It’s kind of a subtle detail,
something that I didn’t invest in Day 1 of redoing my fashion, my,
like my personal style.
After I invested in that,
it made such a huge difference
and you can take really affordable pieces,
and just invest in accessories to really elevate a style.
Next with this outfit,
I think that, it just needs a little bit,
more of like a red lip to just bring things to life.
I usually don’t gravitate toward a red lip,
但是这个色号我最近很喜欢 是Lilah B家的
but this one color that I’ve been loving lately is from Lilah B
and I will link it down with all the details in the description
It’s vegan and it’s cruelty free
and I’ve just been in love with it.
So, it’s really spiced up a lot of different outfits for me.
所以 总结一下 这些小小的微调
So, all together, these few little tweaks
have taken an outfit that’s very casual
and it’s elevated it to be more chic and feminine,
and really fits my personal body style.
So, in the last video,
some of you guys asked for how I style shorts for summertime.
Given that I like to wear flats and that type of thing,
I also think it’s really fun to be able to think about
how to have like a chic shorts outfit.
So again, just like always,
these are pieces that I absolutely love.
呃 我要做的就只是一点微调 改变一下风格
Um, I’m just gonna be tweaking them, styling them differently.
Right now, I’ve got my shirt untucked.
They’re more relaxed fitting shorts.
I think that this outfit just needs to
kind of show off my body style, a little bit more.
So of course, No.1 rule of mine is that I like to tuck in my shirt.
And then also, I’m going to roll up my shorts just a little bit.
So I really like the look of having longer shorts,
but I think that for this specific outfit,
it just looks so much better with them rolled a little bit.
Next thing I want to swap out is
I’m wearing a bra with this, like a nude bra.
I could probably get away with this just fine,
but I think that a cuter look is to instead,
wear something that you don’t see any straps with.
So, one thing that I wear a lot is,
this thing calledw ’nippies’ from Bristols-6,
that just like, gives you coverage
when you’re not necessarily wanting to show
nips (laughing out loud).
And it’s going to like, actually like
still give you a really classy look.
That’s just one tip that I have,
so I’m swapping out the nude bra with nippies
and that just gives this outfit
just an extra layer of like, chic classiness.
So, because I’m petite
and even though I have a longer torso,
one thing I’m going to do with this outfit is to lengthen my torso just a bit
with a longer necklace
A longer necklace is going to just give that illusion
that I have a longer torso, which is really good,
if your concerns are more like
you want to visually represent that you have a longer torso.
So this just overall, gives me a little bit more length
and, um, height to my overall look.
But because my personal body style
is that I want my legs to look a bit longer
in proportion to my torso.
I’m going to actually add some heels and height to this outfit.
So these are some really fun shoes to wear for summertime.
They’re called the ‘Sarita Wedge’ by Nisolo.
I included them in my Nisolo video if you want to check that out,
but basically these have, just like a beautiful wedge,
that has, like a wood look to them
so that’s really fun for summertime.
It’s got rubber on the bottom so that keeps me from slipping
or clip-clopping too much.
And also this just, I think, makes me look a foot taller.
Side by side, I feel like there’s such a difference between
how this outfit looks with flats and how it looks with these wedges.
These are also really good shoes to wear, like,
because they don’t have like a huge arch that is,
you know, like a heel would have.
It’s just you know, your foot’s pretty much still like it is when you’re wearing flats.
So that’s just a kind of a bonus.
So another thing that you guys asked me for last time was like
how do I dress for the office
and like good ideas for outfit-inspo’ with that.
I don’t have like a ton of office wear for my lifestyle,
but I do like to wear like a lot of skirts and dresses
and a lot of like, blouses, so.
maybe all of that kind of works for that.
So this outfit is something that
I’m just wearing a bunch of pieces again that I really like,
but this is a skirt that is just, really fun to wear.
It’s very feminine
and here I’m wearing it just with like a T-shirt,
that is, you know, basic.
So this would be an outfit that someone would like
if they like the monochrome type of thing that I like to wear sometimes.
So the way that I’m wearing this outfit right now
is that I’ve got, of course, my shirt untucked,
and also my skirt is not not where it usually should be at my natural waist.
It’s like pulled down more on my hips
So that’s like the first thing that I want to get out of the way and change
This just fits my body style better
and shows off my, like,more hourglass pear shape
And I think that this is also a really great way to wear this
because this skirt is just so much fun to wear.
It’s a vintage one that I just love.
I love all the buttons, I love how it has like a bit of a flare.
It’s almost a little bit Parisian.
And it’s just really fun to wear when I want to feel particularly feminine,
or for like a more formal or office event.
Next I’m going to swap out the shoes, so,
instead of the black sandals for this outfit, I’m using Espadrilles,
that are really gorgeous
and they give me, again, like it feels like a foot of extra height.
It’s just so much fun.
The air is a lot fresher up here, too.
Next, I want to add a little bit of a longer necklace.
This just brings more attention to the fact that I have accessories on
再次 对身型娇小的女生来说 长项链真的很有用
and also it’s just again longer necklaces can really help a petite girl.
And this type of jewelry actually adds to more of a Parisian look
that I was going for with this outfit
And then again I’m just adding rings here
because why not?
And also it’s just like, makes my outfit look a little bit more pulled together.
So next I’m just swapping out the T-shirt with a cami.
Both look really great.
I just wanted to have an option that was more for summertime,
that would be really great to like show a little bit more skin too,
which also I’m trying to like give more of an illusion
that there’s less fabric going on.
And that, like clothes fit me properly, all of those things.
So just showing a little bit more skin I’m trying to add to this illusion.
Also, it would be helpful if you have shoes that don’t have straps on the ankle,
but I just really like these.
So, I’m taking the hit.
那么 从整体上来看 这身搭配还不错
So overall I think that this look is really fun,
great for summertime, great for different events,
and it still as a monochrome look, so that’s really fun.
There’s other things that I still want to do to this,
with the fact that it’s summertime.
Essentially I just want to add a little tote with me
如果要出门 上班 或者去其他场合的话
because I think that this outfit is great if I’m like going out the door,
going to an event, the office, anything,
so a tote is a really great option.
This one is a good one for like a monochrome look,
but since it’s summertime
I want to do something a little bit more like that it has a texture, a pattern to it.
So I’m swapping it out with this new tote that I have,
我很爱这个 它是’LionHEART Co’家的
I love it, it’s from LionHEART Co.
It’s made from agave, which is so much fun.
So this whole look is very like Parisian-inspired,
but it’s also just great, again, for summertime.
And I hope that you guys liked these looks,
and I hope that it’s really fun to be able to see
how little tiny changes
can take an outfit from looking kind of more plain to looking just fabulous
更符合我的体型 希望 也能符合你们的体型
for my personal body style, and yours, hopefully.
但是 当然 每个人都有自己的穿衣风格和品味
But, of course, everybody has different body styles, different tastes,
like these are just my tips that I like to do every day,
and I hope that you really liked them.
