3 Styling Top Tips for Tall Women:
- Understand your body shape- Knowing which body shape you are can be really helpful when you are looking to upgrade your wardrobe, are you apple shaped, pear, hourglass, triangle, or rectangle?
- Know your measurements – As we spoke about in our previous blog ‘How To Find The Perfect Fit For Tall Jeans‘ knowing inseam lengths, arm lengths, and hip measurements can be really useful especially when shopping for properly fitted clothing.
- Understand your proportions – Knowing whether you have longer legs and a shorter torso, or vice versa is essential when shopping for your frame.
Embrace Slim Jeans
Skinny and slim fit jeans are a wardrobe essential for any tall woman. Not only do they flatter your silhouette, but they also elongate your legs and give the illusion of looking taller. Slim jeans are absolutely timeless and flatter your body shape and create stunning curves. Make sure you opt for a high waisted fit to cinch you in at the waist.

Whilst it’s perfect to buy longer pieces to highlight your stunning height, opt for clothing with a higher waist or that has a waist cinching belt. If you can’t find anything, you can always style your outfit with a belt to create an illusion of a glamorous hourglass shape.
