If you are tall you should think of yourself lucky as you have a model figure. Being tall is easier than being petite as most clothes are made for the taller figure. So you will have an easier time shopping and finding clothes that fit and look great on you. There are some women who are uncomfortable with their tall height and want to draw the attention away from it. Here are a few tips to help you to do this.
You should try to differentiate your top half from the bottom half. To stop eyes from seeing you as one long line. Use horizontal details on your outfits such as diagonal lines or wide belts. Wearing a large wide belt will cut the body in half and make it seem less longer.
Wear your tops over your skirt or trousers, as this cuts height over the waist area. Try to avoid wearing too much pattern. If you are wearing a dress then try to avoid pattern altogether. Wear a different colour on the top and bottom half. You could try black and white or any two contrasting colours. Also try to stick to wearing a lighter colour with a darker colour.
Wear larger accessories, such as big jewellery or a large handbag. The larger accessories will draw all the attention. Avoid wearing small jewellery, it will look out of proportion. If you really want to look shorter, then avoid wearing heels. There are so many flat shoes styles out at the moment that you will be spoilt for choice. Choose from ballet styles to flip flops. The flat shoes are a welcome addition to most tall women’s wardrobe.
