Tall women tend to be shy and have the desire to be “normal”, not to get extra attention. I hate it when people stare at me for no reason. I dont look at others so would you please leave me alone too? I dont know, it is just annoying. Whether I want it or not, someone will just stare at me. I hate that. What can I do then? I tried everything to dress up as a “ghost”, so people wont notice me: dark, simple clothes, nothing trendy nothing awesome, no high heels etc. And then I have to realize: it doesnt work, staring will never stop. Lets turn it into our advantage then! 🙂
Wear pretty shoes! When a stranger sees you, there is only one thing (s)he can do: stare at your feet. They want to know whether you wear high heels or you are just very tall. Well, since your feet get so much attention, make them have a reason to stare: wear gorgeous shoes! 🙂
Wear high heels! Those pretty shows are made for everyone, even for tall girls! My old self would say: “then I’ll be taller than everyone else”. My answer now: You’re already is! 🙂 When I see a tall woman wearing high heels I always think: “wow she has so much confidence, she is so amazing, lucky her!”. Dont forget, you can be this confident woman too! 🙂
Oversized! My favourites are the oversized pieces. While short women can look funny in oversized pieces, tall women can handle them easily! 🙂
Dont forget your neck! Try to avoid necklines that are too close to, or hide, your neck (crewnecks and turtlenecks). Instead, choose button-down shirts, tops with V-necks, scoop necks etc. to visually break the length of your torso. Statement necklaces are our friends too!
Those legs! Once I was told that woman legs cant be never long enough (well, I was in a trouble because I couldnt find tights that are long enough for me… 😀 ). Tall women have long legs amd you have the right to show off! 🙂 Just be sure that if you show some skin somewhere (your legs in this case) then try to cover up the rest of your body. Showing too much skin is not classy (thats a general rule for every woman).
Colour it! Most of your clothes are boring and dark? Well you dont have to throw them away, just buy some pretty, colourful items, accessories. A pop of colour can make wonders! 🙂
Make up! I used to live without any kind of make up product because I didnt need the extra attention it attracts. That was silly. A bit of make up can make you look so much better, prettier, can give so much much confidence. Spending 5-10 minutes in the morning doing your make up will change your whole day! Once you learn how to use your tools and products, you’ll live them! 🙂
Dont be ashamed! This is the most difficult thing because you cant buy or learn it, you have to find a way to accept yourself, not to be ashamed and live each day to the fullest. Be yourself, embrace yourself and your length and you can change the world! Well, at least yours! 🙂
