If you want to avoid the look of a long torso, avoid long tops. Opt for shorter tops, instead. If your torso looks long, your legs usually look shorter. You can also tuck a long top into your pants.
Style Hack #4: Cropped Jackets or Blazers
Just like with short tops, short blazers will do the trick as well. Opt for a cropped jacket that creates the illusion of a shorter torso.
Style Hack #5: Asymmetrical Hemlines
Create disruption around the legs with straight, horizontal hemlines. The asymmetrical hemline makes the legs look longer.
Style Hack #6: Rock a Pair of Heels
For ages, high heel shoes have worked wonders for creating the long leg illusion by making you look taller. Throw on a pair of heels and voila` you’ve got Amazon legs!
Style Hack #7: Nude Heels
Another great way to create the illusion of long legs is with a pair of nude shoes. Shoes that blend in with your skin tone creates an uninterrupted line on the leg. This makes them look longer than what they are.
