Next to fending off questions about whether or not they play basketball, tall women must constantly contend with the question of what to wear. Fortunately, there are plenty of style pointers a woman of exceptional height can use to look and feel her best, from what necklaces and earrings will look best on her to the style and colors of the dresses she chooses.
Colors and Patterns
The best clothing colors and patterns depend on whether the woman would like to accentuate or deemphasize her height. Many women want to look visually less tall; these women should wear patterns as little as possible, blouses that are a different color than their pants or skirts and wide belts whenever possible. Women who would like to draw attention to their height should choose outfits of either one solid color or with large, bold patterns.
Dresses and Skirts
Long, flowing dresses and straight skirts will emphasize a woman's height, while medium-length dresses or skirts worn with a wide belt will cause her to appear shorter. Unless a woman is extremely confident with her height, she should avoid very short skirts.
Knee-high boots with heels and shoes with decorations on an elevated heel are perfect for women looking to show off their impressive feminine stature. To deemphasize height, tall women must pick flat shoes and shoes with decorations or patterns located on the shoe's front.
Tall women have it lucky when it comes to accessories such as jewelry or handbags. For them, the bigger and flashier, the better. Choose large earrings and chunky, eye-catching necklaces. Avoid small, solid colored purses.
