Whether you are looking to fill the smart-casual dress code or straight-up business formal, we have a range of tall women’s workwear that will fit any office rules.
Understanding Dress Codes
- Business Formal – If the dress code at your workplace is business formal, then you’ll be looking for clothing that will mostly consist of a suit. A skirt suit or a trouser suit and a blazer will be your best friend. Closed-toe shoes and subtle makeup and jewellery is a must.
- Smart Casual – Sometimes smart casual can be one of the hardest dress codes to get to grips with. As it’s not as formal as business but it’s not casual enough to be wearing your favourite band t-shirt. We would suggest sticking to a blouse and tapered trousers with a jacket to layer with, but it’s definitely not the time to be bringing out a pair of jeans.
- Business Casual – This dress code is slightly more informal than smart casual and it allows you to start getting creative with your style of skirts and jackets.
- Casual – Now is the time to bring out your favourite pair of jeans, canvas trainers and basic t-shirts. Casual is the dress code but it doesn’t mean go crazy with ripped and distressed clothing and maybe steer clear of flip flops for your own health and safety.
Work Clothes for Tall Women
When it comes to tall women’s business attire, blazers are a must-have. Taller women can find blazers that fit them perfectly with ease. Choose from boucle blazers, scuba blazers, and classic black blazers in UK sizes 8-28. For a bit of colour, look for blazers in bold hues like reds and greens. All of these come in longer lengths that will fit your taller frame. Look for tailored jackets with features like single or double breasted closures, peplum waists, and even pockets and collars that give the blazer a stylish touch. Don’t forget to accessorise – you can pair your blazer with a statement necklace or add a scarf for a more polished look.

Work Shoes for Women
Finding the perfect pair of shoes for a long day at the office can be a challenge, especially for tall women. You want to look professional, but also be comfortable throughout the workday. Luckily, here are some great options that combine style with comfort and suit all UK sizes 3-13.
If you are wearing a pair of smart trousers it’s best practice to keep the look formal and pair with some loafers, court heels or ballerina pumps. However, if your look is more casual you can round your outfit off with a pair of canvas trainers or any flat shoes. As we head into the warmer months we recommend staying away from chunky boots, unless it’s an unexpected snow day!
One of the best comfortable work shoes for tall women are flats. Flats are a great option because they come in a variety of styles and colours and are comfortable to wear all day. Loafers are also a good choice, as they provide the same comfort as flats but have a bit more style. Courts and heels are also great options for taller women, as the extra height gives you an extra confidence boost and ensures you look polished in the office.
For many tall women, wearing heels to work can be a bit tricky. The added height may make them feel uncomfortable or self-conscious wearing heels that make them even taller. However here at Long Tall Sally we want to change this stigma. By providing heels that fit well and are designed for taller frames, we hope to encourage more tall women to embrace their height and feel confident wearing heels to work and other occasions. With heel heights as low as 2” and as high as 4”, choose heels that make you feel comfortable and confident. It’s essential to recognise that every woman should feel comfortable wearing whatever shoes she chooses, regardless of her height.
