When you’re taller than the average gal, finding something that fits – and fits well – can be a challenge. But, much to our enjoyment, some of our favourite high street hotshots have recognised the gap in the market for all you leggy beauties, and designed tall ranges targeted specifically at those above your average height. Topshop, New Look, Next and Dorothy Perkins have all added to their existing collections, while other brands including Long Tall Sally and Taller Than Your Average focus entirely on the needs of a taller lady.
But whether solely devoted to taller ladies or not, all of the brands mentioned have worked hard to design a collection encompassing everything a tall girl could need. Chic trews, tops, jackets, dresses, coats and skirts paying extra attention to length and shape have given a whole new meaning to tall clothing, and boy are we impressed. In fact, these pieces are so good, we reckon those of average height will be green with envy come shopping time.
If it’s everyday, casual pieces you’re after, look to Topshop, Next and New Look for a whole host of jeans, tees and jumpers to take your daily looks from glum to glam. And for the more formal of affairs, Long Tall Sally, Taller Than Your Average and ASOS house a number of head-turning frocks, skirts and tops that will make for timeless wardrobe additions that you’ll wear time and time again. As for outerwear, shopping for a tall coat has never been easier. Whether it’s faux fur, wool or tweed that takes your fancy, it’s thanks to the high street’s new tall sections that you can have your pick from endless options. And as if all that wasn’t enough, the high street’s hottest tall sections are available both online and in store so there really is no reason to miss out.
All in all, tall clothing has never been better – and with our edit, you’re guaranteed to score yourself some serious style points. Go on, we dare you.
