So you’ve made the leap, you’re getting married. Congrats! Are you having any anxieties about the big day? Perhaps you’re worried about looking short next to your bride? Don’t worry, it happens to many men, but there are simple solutions to help make you look taller on your wedding day. Try out some of these clever hacks, and we guarantee you’ll be standing at the front of the aisle tall and proud.
1) Wear A Fitted Suit
There’s nothing that will prevent you from looking taller than a suit that hangs loosely off your body. The loose fit of the suit will trick the eye into stretching you horizontally instead of vertically, which is the exact opposite effect you want when trying to gain some height. So, in order to look taller, you need to ensure your suit is fitted properly, which usually means having the suit professionally tailored to your specifications. Trust us, you won’t regret spending that extra money when you’re not tripping over your pants in front of all your guests.
2) Wear a Matching Belt and Shoes, With No Vest
When choosing what you’ll wear on your wedding day, we suggest finding a belt that is discrete, meaning it blends into the rest of your suit. So, for example, if you’re wearing an all black suit, make sure your belt is also black. If you wear a belt that stands out, visually, this will cut your body in half and make you look shorter. We also suggest making sure your shoes are the same black shade. By making sure everything is monochromatic, it will create one long vertical line, helping to trick the mind into making you look taller. And lastly, we suggest skipping a vest since this will draw unwanted attention to your middle section, preventing the body from appearing as that one long, vertical line that you’re looking for.
3) The Color of Your Suit Matters
While it is best to go with a monochromatic look, as mentioned above, you’ll want to stay away from an all black look. Trust us, if you wear a suit that is all black with nothing to break it up, you end up looking shorter than you are. We suggest wearing a white dress shirt, or even going with a navy or charcoal colored suit for something a little different.
4) Try Height Increasing Shoes.
And of course we can’t discuss ways to look taller without mentioning our OOFY height increasing shoes.

5) Wear No Break Pant Legs and a Shorter Jacket
You definitely don’t want any part of your suit to be too short. However, if you can tailor your pants to have no break and your suit jacket to sit right at the hips, this will be help in your efforts to make you look taller. Basically, by exposing more of the shoe and more of the leg, this will create the illusion of a longer body, thus making you look taller.
6) Opt For a Skinny Tie

7) It’s Time For a Haircut

8) Button Placement Matters

By doing this, it will give the illusion that your legs begin higher up than they really do, which will give you the appearance of longer legs.
