Lengthen Your Legs (For Less Than $100,000)

Brushing off yet another friend’s midday Botox break doesn’t mean we’re completely desensitized to increasingly out-there forms of cosmetic enhancement; I’m looking at you, leg-lengthening surgery. The procedure, a painful surgery most often used to correct deformities and injuries, is now sometimes performed to give short patients extra inches – up to three – at a cost of over $100,000.

Of course, we’d rather turn to fashion first. To give the illusion of extra altitude – albeit only until you change into PJs – look for pants that are fitted through the knee, a hem that hits the top of your foot, and a substantial heel to elevate the whole ensemble. Check out the combinations below. 

For work:
Theory’s Max C pant ($235) has slant pockets that won’t distract from the line of your leg, and paired with low-cut pumps ($70) that stand 3 ¾” high, they’ll create a long-legged silhouette in seconds.

For Play:
The bootcut leg and vertical crease on these Paige jeans ($198) create lean lines, and this boot’s ($100.95) sturdy 3 ¼” heel adds a good dose of comfortable height.
