I have been a big fan of the New Look tall range for some time now. Not only are the clothes incredible value but it also means us tall girls can find clothes in fashion at the same time as everyone else rather than waiting a year for them to hit the tall retailers. I have listed below the reasons why New Look Tall is my go to shop at the moment along with some of my favourite items.
I was a little skeptical about patterned trousers and joggers when they first came into fashion. I decided to give them a try. I am in love and about to order another pair! What is not to love, not only are they fashiable, they are flattering and as comfy as pajamas! So within this blog I will share with you my fouvite outfit and also several other pairs that are likely to be making an appearance in my wardrobe soon.
I have teamed these trousers with a simple black T from Asos, my favourite new sandals from La Redoute (I have them in 3 colours) and a statement necklace from Accessorise.
Now bikinis is never something I’ve struggled to buy but swimsuits are another story! I have been known to spend a lot of money on a ‘long’ swimsuit only to find its no longer than in any other shop! So I’ve done some research and compiled a list of places to buy your swimming costumes along with my favorites this year. These are the retailers I found to stock long/tall swimwear, if you click on the link it will take you straight to the swimwear page. Continue reading Tall Swimwear
1. Pick key items that you need/want before you start looking.
In the January sales i usually go for high value winter items like coats, jackets and boots. Last year I got a pair of long leather riding boots for less than half price. For me its not worth looking at the low value items that come up all year round unless you really enjoy sale shopping.
2. Don’t wait to hear about the sales weeks after they’ve started.
Sign up to your favourite shop email lists and then you know you’re the first to know about the sales.
3. Don’t get bogged down with items that are easy to buy on the high street all year round.
Check clothing is a must have this winter and the high street retailers haven’t let us tall girls down! There are loads of check items out there including some lovely blanket scarfs and shirts that can be found outside of the tall ranges. Here are my top picks from the highstreet.

New Look – Tall Check Tunic Dress- £17.99
I love this dress for work, its great with black tights (see my blog on tall tights for the best ones) and it’s great value.
I have to say since I’ve been writing this blog the question I see from my readers over and over again is where to find tall tights that don’t wriggle down to your knees nor cost the earth. I have been researching and am going to share with you my 3 favourites.
Highstreet – When you’re in a hurry or you’re not an online shopper the best of the highstreet brands in my opinion is Marks and Spencer. I have also tried H&M and Next but these are my favourite. I usually buy an XL and hope the extra elastic will stretch, they take a little maneuvering and I dread going for a wee and having to re position them but at £8 for 3 pairs they are great for everyday wear.
