I love this image. If only, right? If only you were a size 2 and could just glide your way through life like a ballerina buying perfect fitting jeans with the blink of an eye. Well, move it over with your size 7 shoes right now. Let's be realistic!
I began fashion sewing because I was so sick of the lack of fashion options available for tall bods like myself. Manufacturers think that tall means that you are either plus sized or a size 2. So, what options are the rest of us left with? Believe it or not, there are a lot of us!
Well, I'm going to be compiling fashion tips for us... and by us I mean those women 6'0 or taller. I'll be focusing on everything from color and accessories to basics like skirt, dresses and pants. Today's just an overview. Stay tuned for more!
- Skirts, skirts, skirts!
According to Candace tall women should wear a-line skirts.
- Wearing layers can help to even out longer, lanky arms. Cardigans or jackets with the sleeves pushed up can be very flattering.

-Don't be afraid to wear high heels! Sometimes it's kind of fun to be the tallest person in the room.
-Belts: Depending upon where you carry your height, belts can help to even you out a bit. Making a long beautiful dress look flattering or a long cardigan and jeans look a bit more fitted.

- Pants: Make sure the butt of the pants is snug. Droopy butts aren't good for anyone, especially tall girls who's bottoms are a little higher than the rest of the world... making them even more visible!
