Tall Personal Shopping: A New Year, A New Tall Wardrobe

I received a personal shopping request from Rebecca who is ready for a whole need wardrobe. She feels like she’s in a rut and has no idea how to dress. Rebecca is 32 years old with a 34″-36″ inseam depending on shoe height. She wears a size 11 shoe. She has always been relatively thin and was placed on medication that made her gain a lot of weight.  Lately she’s lost most of it and is now wearing a size 10 or 12.
She says “I have been buying unflattering fat clothes for the last few years, now I have nothing up-to-date in my current sizes. I am pretty conservative, but I am always up for new and trendy clothes – I love clothes.  I am just horrible at picking them out and mixing and matching.”
Rebecca needs a new pair of jeans, work clothes, comfy shoes as she lives in Europe and walks a lot, and would like a leather jacket. Luckily she has an APO address, so can get most things shipped there.
Doesn’t this request sound like fun? I hope she’ll also invest in a new hair style to complete the look.  Let’s get started with the recommendations:
First off, when you aren’t sure how to dress, I suggest you start by taking a look at our special of Women’s Tall Clothing Basics – as it will give you a good idea of foundational pieces that most tall women need in their wardrobe.
