TallGirls UK has been on my radar for a while since I started my blog. Luckily Joanne, the fabulous founder, reached out to me for the opportunity to check out the collection. They have everything from outerwear to shoes all for tall women with sizes ranging from 4-18 (UK 8-22) and shoes 10.5–15( UK 8-13). Since we are officially in Fall I chose pieces that will become staples in my wardrobe and what I have heard other tall women search for.
Starting with the most important article of clothing every woman has in her closet. Jeans! I selected the Dream Skinny Jeans with a 36’ inseam. And let me tell you, I have never been so thankful for a pair of jeans that made me feel so confident. Not only were the jeans long enough, actually a little longer than needed, but they have an amazing stretch to them. I have a slim/athletic build with shapely legs. Usually when I am jean shopping I always have a problem with pairs small enough for my waist but too tight for my legs (especially my thighs) or the other way around. I love the dark indigo wash which goes great with the fall neutral colors.
Moving a long….. one of the It jackets to have is a Biker jacket. I chose the Collarless Biker Jacket because I have been dying to get one. But of course the sleeves were always the issue holding me back. Not this time! TallGirls has done it with this jacket. From the time I unpacked it I couldn’t stop wearing it. I requested it one size up so when I wear thick tops it wouldn’t feel so tight. The best part is the length of the sleeves are longer than I needed too. My arm measurement is 29’ ,so I would say these sleeves have to be 30’ or 31” . All I know is I have a choice of wearing them pushed up or down. This jacket also has flexibility and is a great price for those looking to spend less.
Next on my hit list is the casual shirt dress. This stuck out to me because a fellow group member said she would love it if she could find a shirt dress with a long hem and long sleeves. Basically a shirt dress that is really a shirt dress for us tall women. TallGirls Chambray Shirt Dress is a great piece for you to wear multiple looks(0n sale for $24.99 now). The sleeves can be worn rolled up or down (again total success with a long sleeve). This dress looks great by itself, over a pair of leggings, or layered under a cardigan.
Lastly, I tried out a sleeveless jacket for the warm fall days. There was no doubt this jacket was going to satisfy my fashion curiousity. I loved the look of it from the site and the ideas of what I can wear with it. The Long Line Sleeveless Jacket fits great on my broad shoulders and fell at a good length. I am sure you will be seeing this again on the site.
