For those of you who are able to reach the top shelf at the supermarket, I applaud you. But walking around with a model's stature means that it can be hard to find clothes that fit your body’s dimensions properly.
When you’re short you can hem, but when you’re tall, it’s a different story. However, having those extra inches should not mean that you have to limit your fashion choices.
These are our top fashion tips for accentuating and flattering your gorgeous, tall body.
Calli - Kiki Boyfriend Jeans
Abrand '94 High Slim Jeans with Contrast Stitching
Missguided riot mom jeans in stonewash
Verali - Celsie Ve Natural Snake Smooth
Disco Caramel Phoenix Heels
Billini - Marlie
3. Maxi dresses
This is a no-brainer simply because tall women can successfully wear maxi dresses more often than shorter girls can. A super simple, comfortable outfit can be created with a maxi. Be bold with your pattern and colour choices too, your long frame can support it!
Best stores to shop for maxi dresses:
Kiwis Versus Morality
Finders Keepers - Evangeline Dress
Pink Floral Leopard Print Cupped Maxi Dress
Beccie Khaki Extreme Split Strappy Back Maxi Dress
4. Three-quarter sleeves
Being tall usually means having long limbs, and a three-quarter sleeve can really be your friend as it will flatter the length of your arms. To achieve this look you can either roll and cuff your longer sleeves or invest in some cute raglans.
Best stores to shop for three-quarter sleeves:
Top with Puff Sleeve in PU
Atmos&Here - Pia Bodysuit
White Crepe Tie Back Crop Top
5. Asymmetrical hemlines
For those of you with longer-than-life legs, an asymmetrical hemline will make your legs look more in proportion to the rest of your body. Paired with a higher waistline, this will give a tall, lean body some shape.
Best stores to shop for asymmetrical hemlines:
Leopard Satin Wrap Midaxi Skirt
Zero Waste Satin Midi Skirt with Pockets
Pilgrim - Aaron Skirt
6. Cropped jackets
A waist-skimming jacket will lengthen your torso if your legs are the longest part of your body. Layering with length underneath will also help even out your body. Investing in jackets like a staple leather biker or a classic denim will give you endless wardrobe possibilities.
Best stores to shop for cropped jackets:
Nike - Tech Pack Bomber Jacket
Black Utility Cropped Bomber Jacket
Karita Denim Jacket
A '94 High Waist Slim Jeans in Dead of Night Black
Rolla's - Eastcoast Ankle Jean Ella Blue
Levi's - 312 Shaping Slim Jeans
