Draw attention upward and to your face by wearing a dress with a deeper V-neck like Reese Witherspoon here. On Witherspoon: Erickson Beamon for Draper James earrings and Sugar Magnolia Pendant Necklace ($165); Salvatore Ferragamo bag
Available in sizes XS to 3X.
Available in sizes 0 to 10.
Elongate your legs by wearing high-waisted trousers like Vanessa Hudgens. If you choose a style where the hem of the pants hits the floor, your legs will look even longer. On Hudgens: Parker top; Forever 21 pants; Céline bag
Available in sizes S to L.
Available in sizes XL to XXXL.
Instantly lengthen your frame by wearing a turtleneck sweater or a turtleneck dress à la Kate Mara. The turtleneck detail makes your overall silhouette look taller. On Mara: Christian Louboutin pumps
Available in sizes 8 to 10.
Available in sizes XS to L.
A pointed-toe stiletto (rather than an open-toe sandal or something with a round toe) will give the illusion of longer legs, which inherently makes you look taller. Right, Scarlett? On Johansson: Roland Mouret dress; Stella McCartney sunglasses
Available in sizes EU 35.5 to EU 41.
Available in sizes 5 to 9.
The number one item to invest in to look taller? A paneled dress like Anna Kendrick's here, which elongates your shape. On Kendrick: Giulietta dress; Paul Andrew shoes
Available in sizes S to L.
