OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
Starting our list off with a very versatile and timelessly stylish design, the over the knee boots. Over the knee boots not only flatter and emphasize your leg shape, but they also look amazing with shorts or a mini dress. Depending on the rest of your outfit, you can easily dress over the knee boots up or down. For a casual day, pair your boots with a belted, chunky knit cardigan and a simple black dress, and for special occasions, rock it with a colorful or embellished co-ord set!
Our choice: Lipsy Over The Knee Boots
Lipsy Over The Knee Sock Boot, £95.00
You can never go wrong with a classy suede textured pair of boots! Besides the length and the small heel, we also love its versatile color. Match it with an all-white outfit or a high neck dress.
HIGH SLIT MAXI DRESS
Let’s be honest: no one can pull off maxi dresses like tall girls can, especially if it comes with a high slit! A maxi dress with a slit or deep V-neck instantly embraces your figure and beautiful, long legs, and similarly to over the knee boots, you have endless styling options with a flowy maxi. For warmer seasons, we recommend a floral or pastel chiffon dress, and for winter, go for a more minimalist silhouette and deep colors, such as burgundy, emerald or black.
Our Choice: Maria Lucia Hohan Metallic Silk Tulle Gown
Maria Lucia Hohan Metallic Silk Tulle Gown, £1089.00
This maxi dress is a truly outstanding piece. From the metallic shine and pleated skirt to the delicate lace and belt detailing, this gown is perfect for any formal event where you want to stand out. Pair it with matte gold accessories and a nude pump.
PEG LEG TROUSERS
While super high waisted skinny jeans can make the proportions of the body a bit off, peg leg trousers effortlessly flatter tall girls. While this design can “swallow” shorter girls, it works beautifully with long legs. Peg legs have a formal, more elegant vibe to them, but with the right pieces (such as a waist-length denim jacket or crop top), they will fit a casual outfit as well. If you are looking for something more extra and fashion forward, don’t be afraid to experiment with a peg-legged jumpsuit, which will accentuate your shape.
Our Choice: ASOS Tall Tie Waist Linen Peg Trousers
ASOS Tall Tie Waist Linen Peg Trousers, £21.00
The tie waist will accentuate and slim your waistline, and since it was designed especially for tall girls, you won’t have to worry about it being too short. Match the comfy linen material with a white, low cut T-shirt tucked in, or if for a more formal look, choose a mesh detailed beige top.
LACE UP HEELS
Not a fan of over the knee boots? Don’t worry, we have another shoe option for you: lace-up sandals and heels, another trend that was created for tall girls. The lacy details of the shoes will frame your legs beautifully and add an edgy vibe to your look. Depending on your personal style, you can either go with subtle, thin ribbon lace-up sandals or with long, butterfly lace-up heels. Wear it with either laced up all the way or tied on your ankle multiple times, and when it comes to the height of the heels, be bold and never feel “too tall” for heels!
Our Choice: Nasty Girl Elected Gladiator Sandal
Nasty Girl Elected Gladiator Sandal, £21.00
There is nothing not to love about block heels: they are the perfect combination of feminine yet comfortable, and they will give you enough support without being too over the top. The lace-up front comes all the way from the feet and you can tie it up to your knees or wrap it around your ankles.
WAIST LENGTH JACKET
A sturdy leather jacket, a structured blazer or a ripped denim jacket…these are all timelessly stylish pieces, and to make sure they flatter your tall shape, stick to the waist length. Instead of cutting you in half or making your upper body look longer, a waist-length jacket will help you accentuate your waist and create the perfect proportions. You can rock waist-length jackets with basically anything from distressed crop tops to high waisted pencil skirts.
Our Choice: Blank Nyc Olive Juice Jacket
Blank Nyc Olive Juice Jacket, £168.00
A moto jacket is an absolute must-have in every wardrobe, especially in such a cool shade as oxblood or olive. This design will flatter your shape even more with the buckle belt details and the slightly asymmetric, silver zipper.
