Style and Shopping Tips for Tall Women
Tall women face fashion problems daily. Tops are too cropped, jeans and dresses are too short, long sleeves never reach your wrists. There are things you can do to avoid these problems and steer clear from a fashion faux pas. Here are some tips to help you:
Extend your skirt
If you love that dress so much, but it is a little too short for you, worry not. You can buy it anyway and add an extra couple of inches to it with Lacistreet extenders. These are under-slips trimmed with lace that shows below your hemline. It is a fashionable way to make a dress right for you when it comes off the rack, and now you can safely bend over in it.
Get skinny with your jeans
Skinny jeans are a great way to show off your long legs, and they are easy to find in extra-long lengths. But even if they are a little too short, they still look cool, and it is a great way to flaunt those new shoes.
Be bold with your accessories
Being tall has the advantage of allowing you to match your outfits with large accessories. Make the most of this with chunky belts, wide-brimmed hats and big bags. Bold accessories add extra interest to your overall look.
Wear over-the-knee boots
You can pair over-the-knee boots with your favorite mini skirt or shorts to add elegance to your outfit and accentuate your legs. The boots come in a wide range of styles and colors to match just about any look.
Add a waist-length jacket
Add a little extra perspective to your upper body with a boxy jacket or blazer. It will add proportion to your long torso while also enhancing your chic. Don’t worry if the sleeves are a little too short; simply roll them up for extra style.
Wear maxi dresses and skirts
Don’t be afraid to wear longer length clothes. They are a great way to accentuate your height. Flaunt them with a pair of high heels, and you will feel like a million dollars. Avoid vertical stripes, but apart from that, you can rock any bold color or design.
Ditch the suit
If you are dressing for business, forget the plain old suit and opt for mix-and-match skirts and jackets. Separates work well at the office, and they have a much fresher look than a suit. Show off your slim upper body with a structured jacket.
Accentuate your curves
Belted dresses are a great way to accentuate a fuller figure. Avoid wearing baggy clothes, they will just make you look bigger. Cinch in your waist and wear longer skirts for a vintage look. It is sexy to be tall and voluptuous, so make the most of it.
Avoid trophy shopping
Don’t buy clothes and accessories just because you like to look at them, or that is all you ever will do. Be practical as well as fashionable and make sure that you always purchase items that you will actually wear.
