5 styling tips for tall women

At Forever Unique, we’re passionate about tailoring our fashion picks to every figure and body type. No two women are the same, after all. That’s why we have created a roundup of five classic styles for taller women to demonstrate how to dress well as a tall woman.

What should I wear if I am tall?

Ah, that age old question of what to wear as a taller woman. We get asked this question all the time here at Forever Unique, and we’ve got plenty of style ideas for you taller ladies.

We know that shopping for a taller frame comes with its own unique set of challenges. Which is why we’ve compiled these five styling tips to help you make the most of your fabulous figure. After reading this, you’ll no longer be wondering ‘what should I wear if I am tall?’

1) Midi or maxi-dresses were made for long legs

Maxi and midi dresses were made for tall girls and their gorgeous long legs! If you’re stuck for ideas about what to wear as a tall woman for an event, you should opt for a midi dress. The longer cut of a midi dress works to highlight your longer legs and statuesque height.

This cut looks flattering on almost anyone but with taller women it helps to highlight the length of the legs and make a feature of your height. Team with a pair of trendy trainers for a dressed-down daytime outfit or with your favourite heels for a night on the town. Browse our range of midi dresses for tall women to find your perfect fit.

Maxi dresses are a wardrobe staple. They can effortlessly take you from day to night. Here at Forever Unique, we have a gorgeous collection of slimming, figure-enhancing maxi-dresses that will accentuate every inch of those gorgeous long legs of yours!

One of our favourites for taller women is the Black Floral Capped Sleeve Maxi Dress. This dress ticks all the right boxes when it comes to dressing well as a tall woman. The long maxi-dress design flatters all shapes and accentuates those long limbs again, whilst nipping in at the waist to create instant shape.

2) Define your waist for instant shape

Whilst it’s good to go for longer pieces to highlight your height, these longer items can also run the risk of making your body look extra-long. This is why high-waisted items are well-suited to taller women. High-waisted skirts and trousers work to elongate your legs, whilst also pulling in at the waist to create shape. Cinching in at the waist will help to create the illusion of an hourglass figure.

High-waisted trousers and jeans are another fantastic way to create the perfect hourglass shape whilst making the most of your lovely long legs. Browse our trousers collection to find a pair that makes you feel effortlessly glamorous. We love these Pop-Art Print Trousers. The beautiful pattern stands out and the high-waisted, wide-legged cut elongates your figure and legs.

3) Skinny and slim jeans are effortlessly glam

Skinny jeans are a tall woman’s’ best friend! When buying skinny jeans as a taller woman, it’s not so much the length you need to worry about but the fit.

Boot-legged pants often don’t have the long inseam that tall women need and can appear shorter. Skinny jeans look longer and if they’re a little short it doesn’t really matter because ankle grazers are in fashion. They’ll fit snugly against your ankles which makes it harder to tell that they aren’t as long as they should be.

A skinny or slim legged jean is an all-time classic that flatters most body shapes and high-waisted fits are made for tall women! The high-waist cut highlights curves in all the right places. Browse our denim collection to find the perfect jeans to suit your body.

4) Have fun with vibrant patterns

Tall women can definitely wear loud, proud patterns and prints! Try wearing contrasting colours on your top and bottom half to break up your height. Or invest in a printed top to take the attention away from your bottom half.

Avoid dressing all in one colour too, as it can make you look longer overall. But teaming a bright patterned top with a solid coloured skirt or pants will break up your height.

One of our style favourites is the Turquoise Pleated Skirt. This skirt flatters taller women with its high-waist cut and midi-length style. Plus, it has a fabulous fun and vibrant pattern!

Elongate your figure with stylish jumpsuits

Similar to maxi-dresses, jumpsuits are made for longer frames. Whilst they’re flattering on women of all heights, if you find the perfect fit, size and style then a jumpsuit can have an instant wow-factor for taller women.

Jumpsuits highlight your long legs, whilst cinching in at the waist to create a fantastic silhouette. This breaks up the strong vertical line that most tall women worry about by creating natural curves.

Here at Forever Unique, we love a bold jumpsuit. If you were ever wondering how to dress well as a tall woman, we’d definitely recommend investing in a classic, sophisticated jumpsuit. You can dress it down for brunch dates or dress it up for cocktail-nights.
