There’s something we all have in common (yes, besides our difficulty in deciding which It bag to buy for spring): We all want our legs to look as amazing as they possibly can—right? Well, believe it or not, it’s actually quite simple to make your pins appear longer and more slender. And no, we’re not talking about hitting the gym or giving up every carbohydrate ever created. A few distinct styling tricks we've noticed on our most-trusted A-listers will do it.

Slim boots that go all the way up your leg will naturally make your legs appear longer and leaner, drawing the attention upward on your body. Be sure to not leave a gap between your hemline and where the boots end.

If you’re looking for an instant way to make your legs look incredible, take a cue from Queen Bey and opt for a skirt with a high slit. The difference between a style like this and a classic midi skirt, for example, is that this doesn’t chop off any portion of your leg, instead creating a clean line up and down your frame.

When it comes to denim, flares that hit right at the ground are the best option for a flattering silhouette. The opening at the bottom gives the illusion that your legs keep going and going—especially if you wear stacked heels.
On Kate Bosworth: Erdem x Linda Farrow Cat-Eye Sunglasses (£265); Altuzarra bag; Trademark sweater.
The beauty of nude heels is that they naturally make your legs appear longer. While Gigi Hadid opted for a pair with skinnies here, you can go for an above-the-knee skirt or slit skirt with your nude heels to make your legs look great too.
It’s no secret that vertical stripes will help elongate your frame, so if you’re looking to help your legs specifically, find a pair of pants (like Kendall Jenner’s here) that has a line running up and down.
On Kendall Jenner: Saint Laurent sunglasses; Givenchy bag; TY-LR The Classic Coat (£240); Elisabetta Franchi pants; Sandro boots.
