As a normal girl, I love getting dressed up for special occasions and somedays I just love wearing skirts and dresses to feel a little better about myself and feel classier 🙂 … the problem is I’m taller than the average girl, coming in at 6′ 2″, soooo most dresses and skirts hit me a bit higher than I would like! When I go shopping, it is a dream come true when I find something that is long enough and doesn’t look like a long shirt or show a little too much leg!
Luckily some of the best brands out there have started special sizing for tall girls, as well as normal, plus, and petite girls (so keep reading even if you aren’t tall!).It is so amazing to have that extra couple inches and have the clothes look like they fit you. You can feel comfortable knowing they fit! Some of my favorite places online that I have found to buy tall clothes (and make special sizes) include Long Tall Sally, J. Crew, Gap, J. Jill, Ann Taylor, Asos, and Lands’ End! I found items at every store that I love. The shoes at Long Tall Sally, the pants from Gap, Sweaters from Ann Taylor, and more! I’m sure there are more amazing websites for us tall girls, if you know a good one, let me in on the secret 😉 … the one thing I love from every company is the dresses! And this season there are soooo many that are to die for! I’ve tried to narrow it down, but I have too many favorites! And when tall girls find a dress, it’s like winning the jackpot! Here are some of my favorite ones for fall!
These first two from J. Jill are the perfect dresses for fall. I am obsessed with both of them! The best thing about them, putting aside that they are long enough, is that they are both neutral and could go with anything! You could dress them up with jewelry, cardigans, and boots… but you could also wear them as they are and still look like you are ready to take over the world!
You can never go wrong with a simple dress and a cute pair of shoes! These cute dresses are from the Gap, and they are both perfect for this crisp weather! They are both reasonably priced and it is your lucky day because the gray flared dress is on sale right now!!
These next two are from Asos. It is one of my favorite websites to shop, go check out all the other dresses on the site! The best part about Asos, is it is always free shipping, always! Another perk of Asos is that it is not necessarily one specific style, but includes something for everyone. It has dresses and outfits for all types of occasions from homecoming to a casual day hanging out at the park!
Okay I love both of these. They both come from Long Tall Sally, and these guys have got the tall sizes down! They are experts, but we should expect it from their name, right? Everything I have gotten from Long Tall Sally fits perfect and is comfy! And these dresses each have the perfect look for fall! You couldn’t go wrong with either of these dresses or any others found at Long Tall Sally! They also have shoes of every kind for those of us that can’t just walk in a department store and pick up the one we like off the table!
I could probably go on and on because every single time I go to one of these stores, I find another dress I want!! (if only I had unlimited $$$$) It might just be me, but this season’s dresses are perfect! And the best part is they will fit us taller girls how we want them to. Don’t feel bad or excluded if you aren’t in the tall club, cause every one of these stores has the same exact dresses in the regular sizes and some even have plus size and petite! Looks like they are finally catching on that amazing ladies that want to look good come in many different shapes and sizes!
