Regardless of what shape you are in, how tall or how short, you can always use your clothing choices to make yourself look bigger or smaller, depending on what effect you want.

Choose Similar Colors
Wear trousers, socks and shoes all in the same or similar colours. Uniformity of colour gives an impression of height. Wearing a belt that matches your trousers and not your top also gives the impression of length to your legs, not your torso.
Vertical Stripes for Length
When choosing patterned clothes, go with vertical stripes instead of horizontal stripes or checkered patterns. Vertical stripes help to create height. Horizontal stripes and lateral patterns give an impression of lowness or wideness.
Choose shoes with pointed toes and elongated design to make you look taller or your feet bigger. Clunky, round shoes will make you look shorter.
Wear jackets that stop at the waist rather than long jackets or coats. When your top clothing cuts off at the waist, your legs appear longer than if part of your legs or waist are covered by your top clothes.
