Just because you weren’t born with the measurements of a Hadid sister doesn’t mean you can’t fake modelesque height. All it takes is a little strategic styling and visual trickery. Where shoes are concerned, there's one major adjustment you can make to add inches to your figure: Wear shoes that match your skin tone.

Why? Skin-colored shoes (or even shoes that are see-through) visually extend the length of your legs without a break in color. 

Nude flats will do the trick, but for maximum lengthening, opt for a heel. For extra, extra leg-lengthening, go with a pair that has a pointy toe, which will further elongate the line from your head to the ground. 

Not only do nude shoes allow you to live your supermodel fantasy, but they also go with any color, which takes some of the guesswork out of getting dressed in the morning.

A win-win, if you ask us.
