Taller women are natural attention getters, whether they like it or not. They walk into a room, and their height draws everyone’s eyes to them. Some tall women may feel insecure about their height because of this and try to disguise it by dressing in a way that allows them to blend into a crowd. Instead of hiding your height, celebrate it! You were born beautiful just the way you are! Here are some ways to accentuate your best feature: your height!
Women of extravagant height shy away from heels because they add height where they already have it. Here’s the thing: People already know you are tall, with or without heels. Hiding it just takes away your well deserved right to beautiful shoes! Life is short. Buy the shoes.
Make sure your handbags are proportional to your size. Tiny clutch bags may get lost against your frame. Don’t worry, though! Clutch purses come in a plethora of shapes and sizes. A larger envelope clutch may work well with bustier women, as they draw attention to your chest when held. Another alternative would be large totes and satchels.
High waisted pants and dresses are very flattering to taller women as they make a longer torso add proportion. For work, break up your traditional two piece suit by mixing it with other pieces. For example, a mustard blazer will look wonderful with a floral pencil skirt and adds depth and interest rather than one monotone color all throughout.
Longer arms are a given with taller women. Add proportion with layers. Start with a shirt with quarter length sleeves, add a cardigan and a jacket with the sleeves pushed up. Tall women make a statement no matter what they are wearing so you may as well make it a big one! A-line skirts and dresses add width, further adding depth to your height.
Make sure your clothing is well fit and streamlined, no matter what the cut. Oversized or baggy clothing will just make you look shapeless as opposed to tall. Voluptuous and shapely, no matter what your build, should be the goal. It will help to wear wide legged pants and broad shouldered jackets, although don’t wear both at once. Pair loose pants with a slim fitting top and a sleek jacket with wider bottoms. Remember to keep the balance.
Don’t be afraid to show your skin. Take care of your skin from within by drinking plenty of water. Show off only one area at a time or it will project an image of yourself you aren’t too fond of. A backless top with long pants is incredibly sexy, or a short skirt with a long sleeved top. Show skin, but not too much.
Being yourself is never a crime. Celebrate who you truly are, every day.
