People always seem to be aware of tall women, wherever she goes – for better or worse. You may be tempted to dress quietly and conservatively to blend in with the crowd, but who really wants to do that? Instead, make the most of the inevitable stars and embrace your long frame.
Below are our favorite styling tips for tall women to help you long-legged beauty look and feel your best every dress.
Wear beautiful shoes
As a tall woman, you are probably familiar with the reaction that other people have when they see your height and they have to check your feet immediately to determine if you are wearing heels. It doesn’t matter if you prefer heels, flats or athletic shoes, just choose beautiful shoes that deserve to be stared at.
Not afraid of heels
Heels seem to add confidence, gender, and status to any outfit, and if 6’5 “former professional basketball player Lisa Leslie can rock the high heels, there’s no reason you shouldn’t too. Think of all the super models right now- Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner and more – who all wear heels on a regular basis, expecting those around them to just handle it.
Celebrate great accessories
Don’t be afraid to carry a big bag or wear a bundle of cool bracelets and bracelets. Unlike your shorter friends, oversized accessories will not swallow you whole. Think of cool, extra-spacious totes, statement necklaces, chandelier earrings, and belts as your way of drawing your eye to your favorite function, not just your stature.
A little skin
You have a lot of skin on your long body, so you might as well use it to your advantage. The trick is to play it without looking like you are trying too hard or inappropriate at the moment.
Our best advice is to focus on showing one area at a time. For example, if you are wearing a backless top, pair it with wide-leg trousers or skinny jeans. The same goes for a crop, it’s best to cover up somewhere else for a look that sparks the imagination but still keeps people guessing.
Mark your neck
When you get ready for a night out, your long neck and extra decolletage are assets that you should highlight. Choose interesting necklaces, pull your hair back and wear necklaces or large earrings that attract the eye.
Pair narrow with wide
If you are spoiled by embroidered pants or broad-haired jackets because you are afraid that men’s clothing will make you look too masculine – it’s time to regain your thinking. If a runway model can pull off the look, you probably can too. To avoid looking “big”, make sure you only carry one oversized item at a time. For a contraction, wear embroidered trousers with a tight top or pair a large jacket with skinny jeans.
Adding a splash of color to your outfit is a great idea. Color adds interest to an outfit, and a woman who wears color exudes confidence. You don’t have to add much, just throw in a turquoise necklace with your favorite white T-shirt or wear colorful pumps with your little black dress. Color can also draw attention to your favorite accessories, so if you love your slim waist, wear an ornate belt.
Be a minimalist
Remember to distill the above tips into a one-time routine. Avoid adding too many accessories at once, or rocking too many trends in one outfit. If you wear your height as an accessory, you don’t have to put much effort into your appearance. One or two simple pieces are all it takes to make it.
Play with your hair
There is a reason why the participants in America’s next top model all undergo dramatic makeup that often includes major changes in their hair-raising chickens that you can really pull off. Never forget that the hair grows back and can always be changed, so enjoy experimenting and playing with different styles.
Don’t shy away from the sometimes dramatic eyeliner or bright red lipstick. Senior women often feel self-conscious with trendy makeup because of the extra attention it attracts. Even if you don’t think you could ever go out in public while wearing glitter eyeshadow, meet your girls and challenge yourself to try something new at least once a month.
