Fashion Tips for Tall Women — from Oprah!

Oprah Photo of Tall womanOooo! I’m loving the photos and ideas from Oprah’s feature, The Best Fashion for Tall Women. Too bad the majority of the women are 5′11″ — would have loved to see some taller women. Like all magazine shoots, the actual clothes are waaaay too expensive, but be sure to swing over for the slideshow to get some ideas. Here’s a bullet-point summary of the tall tips:

    Oprah’s Fashion Tips for the Tall Ladies

  • High-waisted styles and wide-leg pants make a long torso look more in proportion
  • Asymmetrical tops can take focus away from prominent shoulders
  • Different colors on top and bottom can break up your height
  • If you have a slim upper, be sure to emphasize with structured tops
  • Got a lanky-arms issue? Try layering! A tee with sleeves that hit the wrist + cardigan + jacket with pushed-up sleeves = tres chic
  • A-line shape adds a bit of width to thin frames.
  • Belts bisects long bodies, and show off great curves

I think the world will eventually begin to realize that tall girls are as tall as 6′7″ these days. But, until then we all will just have to wing it and work together.

Keep up the good work!
