Being tall is a blessing and a curse when it comes to shopping. I rarely have to get my jeans hemmed, but I also can’t wear those up-to-there dresses and skirts that don’t look quite as minuscule on shorter girls. When it comes to fall trends, there are styles that I’m super excited to wear, like head-to-toe leather, and others that are simply not made for me (hello, chunky lug-sole boots that make my size 10 feet look even bigger).
Take, for instance, the voluminous dress trend. Our 5’4″ editor Allyson says that the trend would swallow her whole, but those with taller frames have an easier time pulling off the oversize look—something I was more than happy to take advantage of during my recent trip to Copenhagen Fashion Week. (Even though I’m 100% a proponent of anyone wearing anything they please!) Scroll down to see and shop my favorite and least favorite trends that fellow tall girls will certainly relate to.
