Style Tips for Tall Women

With the average Indian woman being 5.3”, finding outfits can be time-consuming if you are above the average. When you are above 5.7” it is assumed that you have got it right with your modelesque height. But in reality, all those extra inches can mean a struggle to find the dress with the length of your liking, skirts that are long enough to be worn for a formal outing, the trouser that comes past your ankle, and a blazer that doesn’t turn into a three-quarter-length crop jacket. 

We know adding length to clothes is pretty much impossible, so we have got some in-house experts who have got pro-styling tips up their sleeves to help you once again fall in love and appreciate your fabulous height. 

So wait no more and scroll further.

What is a Tall Body Shape?

A  tall body frame is all about height. There are 3 main characteristics of tall women: 

  • Your height is 5’7’’ or above and
  • Top sleeves and pants length often fall short.

Remember, this won’t all be the case for everyone. The tall body frame can be of all sizes and proportions, which means you may have legs that need a longer inseam, but may never really have an issue with sleeve length, and vice-versa.

Basic tips for tall women 

To get started, you should know:

  1. Your body shape:

You can be an apple, hourglass, straight, pear, or inverted triangle. Knowing your body shape helps in getting perfect fits for you.

  1. Your measurement:

Your inseam and arm lengths are important measurements for clothes that fit you well.

  1. Your Proportions:

If your seat ie the widest part of your hips is about halfway down your frame, you’re likely a true tall. If not, you may just need tall tops or pants, not both.
