Rather than going for matchy matchy kind of style for my party season look, I see myself wearing contrasting fabric. I feel that now, I am coming to my own. My sister recently made a comment on my choices of eyewear – saying that there are so funky. I replied by saying that I want to stand out rather than blend in. So the same can be said about my choices of outfit.
So if wearing dress is not your thing, or you simply want to diversify your style a bit for the forthcoming parties, you could achieve that by looking at the some of the lovely shirts that have been designed with the tall lady in mind. Whilst dress has its place, I feel that skirts offer more styling options. For example with one skirt, you can wear it with many different tops which will lend itself to a whole new look each time.
So here are some skirts that I currently loving right now –
I really like this because of the gold and silver hue. It really is different because of the contrast hem. I can see myself pairing with a black top or even with a jeans shirts and a pair of heels and I am good to go.
True Decadence is a brand that takes its fashion influence from the catwalk. Their clothing range caters both for tall women and petite women as well. Their tall clothing line does not extend towards offering shoes in large size which is sad. If you are looking for maxi, midi or even mini dress, it’s worth checking out this brand on ASOS.
If you are a sucker for all things tulle, I hope this version in teal is tempting enough for you to want to buy it.
If you don’t do gold, silver or anything that reminds you of Christmas but you love floral, then this skirt could be for you. It is different because you would normally expect to see velvet and sparkles in every Christmas collection.
Whilst I am not a big fan of mini skirts, I have included it there for the tall ladies out there that love all things mini. I prefer my pencil shirt in midi length as I am actually in need of a pencil skirt in midi length right now.
The skirt is similar to the ASOS version, the only difference being that this version comes in a solid colour – gold metallic. It is described as a midi length skirt though it appears much longer in length to be a midi. If you love a pleated skirt but didn’t feel the vibe of the ASOS version, then Topshop design might be a contender.
Perhaps you are not into shiny or metallic looking skirts. You prefer the feminine look because that’s what rocks your boat. Hopefully, this Pintucked Lace Skirt by J Crew could the answer to your prayer.
So what looking are you going for this festive season? Are you going to stick your normal style routine or you are thinking of doing something different?
