Not everyone is blessed with long, lean legs, but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t tweak appearances through fashion! All you have to do is be creative and mindful with styles you choose to wear, and we have the low-down on which bottoms work best.
The number one rule? If you want to make your legs look longer, select higher-waisted styles. We made sure that every pair of pants and leggings in the roundup below has (at least) a mid-waist fit to accomplish this elongating goal. From there, you have a few different options.
Darker washes and hues are always favorable, and you can choose between a few pant leg styles too. As trendy as baggy pants are right now, if you’re on the shorter side, they may not do you any favors in this department. Go for skinny, straight, flared or wide-leg pants instead. We chose a few of each below, so read on for supermodel-length legs!
Leggings and Yoga Pants
