How to Look Taller – Sleeves

Push up your sleeves

The fastest, easiest way to make yourself look taller and legs longer is to push up your sleeves. Yes, it’s a very simple trick.

If you’re wearing a jacket and like to do this for more casual occasions, but find they keep sliding down, then pop a rubber band (not too tight) around the sleeve to hold it up. You can easily hide the band in the folds of fabric.

  1. I have always liked to scrunch my sleeves like this, but have never made the connection between pushed -up sleeves and looking taller/longer-legged. I do notice, though, that longer sleeves seem to elongate my midriff (I,m short-waisted) so this look is a bit of a compromise for me, but I,ll probably keep on scrunching anyway. I’ll definitely be using the rubber band tip, too.

    There used to be these elastic, metallic cuffs designed to hold up men´s sleeves under jackets – my father (being a shortish kind of man) used to wear these when I was little. I sometimes see them at fleamarkets.

    I always fold my shirtsleeves (unless it´s really cold) to my elbows, but it´s because it´s practical and I suppose I like the way it makes me look competent and strong. I don´t mind if it makes me look taller as well!

  3. I love 3 quarter length sleeves, but never thought of using rubber bands to make long sleeves stay shorter – a great trick – Thank You!
