How to dress when you are tall: what you should avoid!

Having long legs does not mean that everything is fine. Just play on the contrasts!

The “total look”

A monochrome style will accentuate your figure. Have fun mixing materials and colors to give an effect of proportion, imagining blocks between the top and bottom of the body. If you wear a dress, you can add a jacket or waistcoat over it or belt it.

Tops too short

Here, we are not talking about crop top, but rather tops that seem to be too small for you. So, opt instead for shapes that go down well on the hips, or at least just under the belt.

Long accessories

Avoid necklaces or scarves around the neck, which accentuate the
verticality and increase the pace. Instead, all you need is to adopt plastron necklaces, wool snoods, or tie your scarf around your neck.


Large shoes! If you are tall, you have usually inherited the size that goes with it. Pointed-toe shoes tend to lengthen the foot. To avoid the "clown shoes" look, choose round or less elongated tips.
