Looking tall is something that most Filipinas try to achieve with their daily looks. And while heels and flatforms can add a few inches, you also need to mind the proportion of your clothes to your body. Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Medina shows us exactly how to do just that.
She may be wearing pieces that are both loose-fitting, but since her outfit is strategically cinched at the waist, it gives an illusion of a slimmer torso and longer legs. Her wide-leg trousers serve a dual purpose–to add shape, and to elongate her body from the waist down. Despite the baggy top, the light and flowy fabric doesn't weigh her down. Notice also the cut of the white blouse, with its asymmetric hemline it creates an illusion that the wearer is taller than her actual height.
