Most women over 5ft6” come under the tall category in clothing sections. This can cause all types of problems and sometimes can prove quite embarrassing. You certainly don’t want to look like you’ve got ankle swingers on!!! Some stores have started to introduce tall clothing into their range of products, after seeing more and more taller models on the catwalk, which is providing a wider range for taller women to choose from.
If you are embarrassed about your height, try wearing longer tops to shorten the leg area, ideally with horizontal stripes rather than vertical, as they tend to elongate the body. Plus (the obvious) where flat shoes. However, if you are proud of your height stand out and be bold about it, as you will never easily blend in. Maxi dresses are ideal, especially coming up towards summer, in a bold pattern, but try to avoid block colour from head to toe, unless adding accessories (e.g belt). A two toned dress is one of your best options, as it draws attention to the waist, breaking up the length of the body. Details such as fringing and feathers are easier to carry off when you are tall and a tiered evening dress looks brilliant on the taller figure, due to its depth and shape it creates. Lastly stand tall and be proud in your heels! Here is an ideal dress from the Zeleb Collection:
