Everyone is fabulous the way they are - no matter how tall or short or thin or heavy. We are perfect with all our imperfections and that’s beautiful, don’t you think? Embrace yourself the way you are but at the same time pick up some awesome fashion hacks to look like the best possible version of yourself. This time round we tell you how you can look taller while still wearing flats. So here are some flat shoes that make you look taller!
1. Go the strappy route
Strappy sandals are always in vogue and for good reason too. They are versatile and look good with almost anything in your closet. Thin strappy sandals make you look taller as they cut off your feet in a nice subtle way. Make sure to always look for straps that are not bulky or thick.

2. Nude ballet flats. Enough said!
Consider this your holy grail when it comes to looking taller in flats. Nude tones blend well with your skintone and thus create the illusion of a long continuous line. This not only makes your legs look longer but they also has a slimming effect. Need we say more?!

3. Say yes to pointed toes
If you are wearing closed shoes, then make sure you go for ones that have pointed toes. Any shoe that narrows down towards to toes will make one look taller. Choose shoes with a low vamp so that most part if your feet is visible. The lower the vamp, the better.

4. Loafers for the win
If you think loafers and moccasins are a little boring, then think again, because the latest avatar of these comfortable shoes has changed their style game altogether. Nowadays, the market is flooded with cute loafers in the prettiest colours and designs. They are not only super comfortable, but they also add some height as the sole is thicker as compared to ballet flats.

5. Lace-up flats are all you need
These shoes are the trendiest fashion items you can own today. With their hardly-there feet cover-up and trendy laces that you can fasten around your ankles, this shoe design screams sexy and is giving a tough competition to high heels. They elongate your legs and creates an illusion of never-ending legs. Isn’t that the dream?

6. Slip-ons are your BFFs
And if you’re in a rush, then just slide you feet into a pair of cool slip-ons and hit the road. Opt for a single bar slip-on or slide sandals so that space below your ankles is completely free. Pair them with cropped pants that show off your delicate ankles. Works every time!
POPxo Recommends: AQ sliders (Rs 999)
7. Go the Gladiator way
Gladiators look super trendy and, of course, we wouldn't expect you to stay away from them! All you need to keep in mind is that the pair you pick has super thin straps that go around your calves and not thick one. And if they’re beige or nude in color - double win!
