Are you fed up with tops coming up short? Here at Long Tall Sally, we understand how frustrating it can be to not find tops that both fit and flatter your longer torso. A problem faced by many tall women! So, to try and help we’ve rounded up 5 types of tall tops that suit ladies with long torsos.
Our 3 Long Torso Style Tips:
- AVOID low waisted jeans and trousers at all costs. This fit will only lengthen your body and make your legs look shorter. High rise fits elongate your legs, and give you the illusion of a high waistline.
- Opt for wider belts. Wide belts help to create a balanced finish by breaking up the space on your torso. A wide belt paired with high-waisted slim fit jeans is a must-have look.
- Create the illusion of a high waist. This can be done with… you guessed it, tops! Longline, tie waist, and striped tops are ideal for drawing attention to the smallest part of your waist and making your body appear more balanced.
