Tall Striped Top – Styled 2 Ways

A tall striped shirt is such a versatile piece for your tall wardrobe. At first glance, this black and white tall striped top may look plain and basic. However, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how many pieces you can pair it with. I know my tall striped tops have quickly become go-to favorites for fall, winter and early spring. Here's how I've styled the top: Dressed Up Don't be afraid to pair this more casual striped top with dressier pieces like a lace skirt and blazer.  The stripes on the shirt and floral lace pattern on the tall skirt create some subtle pattern mixing.  And guess what?! The skirt is currently on sale for only $29 and the blazer is on sale for $55! Dressed Down Early fall is often not quite chilly enough to warrant wearing a jacket or coat.  The long-sleeves of the top combined with the vest and a pair of jeans should be just the right amount of coverage to keep you warm on those slightly brisk fall days.

Tall Trends – Mad for Plaid

I bought my first tall plaid shirt last year and couldn't believe how much I wore it.  Plaid is no longer just for lumberjacks or aficionados of the 1990s flannel shirt trend. You can now find tall plaid skirts, pretty button-ups blouses, tunics, pants, shoes and more!  I'm thrilled to be seeing so many tall plaid styles for women this year and can't wait to beef up my plaid collection. Here are a few styles that caught my eye: Plaid linen-blend tunic (Up to size XXL; Also available in red plaid) Tall tunics are one of my all time favorite clothing items and I love the blue plaid fabric of this tunic.  It would look great with tall white jeans, black jeans or just jeans! The tunic comes in a breathable linen/cotton blend. Over-the-knee Boots: (Up to size 12; Available in 4 widths) I just love the plaid detail on these over-the-knee boots.  To make it even better, the boots can be adjusted to fit larger calfs and come in 4 different widths! Plaid tall midi skirt (Up … [Read more...]

Tall Vest Styled 3 Ways

I happened to be browsing the tall women's clothing on Banana Republic's website, and this double-breasted tall vest caught my eye for a few reasons.  First, the subtle blush fabric is easy to pair with several different colors or patterns.  Also, many tall vests I've come across seem to be focused on providing warmth and mostly fall into the "sporty" category while this piece is on the structured side with its double-breasted closure, notch collar and slightly textured fabric. Another reason I'm drawn to this vest is its wearability.  Vests tend to play well with a variety of styles since they can be layered over dresses, worn with pants or skirts, layered over a tank top or long-sleeve shirt etc.  In a nutshell, this piece has the potential to see a lot of wear throughout the year. I chose three different pieces to go with the vest: a pair of tall jeans, a "non-tall" printed skirt that should still work for us tall ladies, and a pair of tall polka dot pants. Tall vest … [Read more...]

My current obsession: Linen! I'm sure you can guess why. If not, here's a hint: IT'S HOT! Thanks to the sweltering summer weather, I'm craving breathable, lightweight fabrics. I found a pair of tall linen pants hiding in the back of my closet, and I'm surprised by how many times I reach for them now as I'm getting dressed. The amount of wears I'm getting out of these once forgotten pants is inspiring me to hunt for other linen items.

Summertime Lace – Tall Eyelet Tops, Dresses and Skirts

I have an infatuation with all things lacy.  While a fancy lace dress or skirt still has its place in tall summer fashions, eyelet lace is the perfect fabric for everyday wear during the warmer months. Here are a few tall eyelet styles that have caught my eye. White Zip Top with Eyelet Details (Sizes 6-18) If you only want to wear a bit of eyelet lace, this top is perfect for you since the lace detailing on the shoulders is very subtle. Eyelet  Tall Bomber Jacket (Sizes Small-XXL) Maybe temperatures are already sizzling where you live, but I was still wearing a summer scarf and light jacket last weekend. An eyelet bomber jacket is the perfect spring/summer layering piece for unpredictable weather. Tall Chevron Eyelet Skirt (Sizes 0-18) This cheery, light yellow skirt can be dressed down with a white t-shirt and sandals or dressed up with a pretty blouse and heels. Eyelet Tall Midi Skirt (Sizes S-XL)  I could easily see this eyelet midi skirt in black or white … [Read more...]

A Perfect Pair: Tall Maxi Skirts and V-Neck Tees

Tall white V-neck tees - how I love thee! Let me count the ways. 1) You're perfect for layering 2) You look amazing with jeans 3) You're a blank slate for all kinds of accessories 4) You look fantastic tucked into skirts with a belt In case it's not already obvious, I'm a big fan of white V-neck tees.  You may be hesitant to try a white tee because stains are hard to remove or because white tops are sometimes too sheer.  I've learned not to spend a bundle on white tees because they do inevitably attract stains and need to be replaced somewhat frequently.  The featured V-neck tee is reasonably priced (and it also goes on sale quite a bit) making it is a good option for a white tee that you can buy again and again without breaking the bank.  Based on the reviews of the tee featured in this look, the 100% cotton material is thick enough to avoid the dreaded see-through effect. One of my favorite ways to wear a white tee is with a tall maxi skirt, a belt and some fun … [Read more...]

6 Fun, Tall Floral Skirts

I don't know about you, but I'm craving more floral pieces in my closet for spring and summer. Now that the weather is warming up, I'm also on the prowl for some fun tall skirts.  The great thing about a skirt with a fabulous floral print is that it's so easy to style since the bold print adds some serious oomph to an outfit.  This allows you to keep the top that you wear with the skirt pretty basic.  For an office appropriate look, simply throw on a v-neck tee, dressy blazer, and a necklace or two.  For a casual night out after work, exchange the dressy blazer for a denim jacket or if it’s a warm summer evening, just ditch your jacket altogether. If you’re feeling daring, you could even try pairing a floral skirt with a subtle stripe or polka dot top for some pattern mixing. This season, I'm noticing tall floral skirts in a wide range of colors and patterns from abstract black and white all the way to bold, colorful flower prints. If big, bright prints aren’t you’re … [Read more...]

Tall Tropical Print Skirt & Top

If you've followed me for a few years, you'll know that I'm a big fan of anything tropical. Today's find is this tall tropical skirt and top.  I like that these pieces are separates. I wear different sizes on top to bottom, so separates work better for me than dresses. I can also see this top being matched with a pair of cropped pants or the skirt matched with a solid t-shirt.  Take these pieces on your next vacation. They are on sale!  View more tall skirts here. … [Read more...]
