How to look amazing for taller women – maxi dresses, flats, oversized sweaters and more

Updated on February 5, 2012

Like everyone else, taller women will look very chic in certain outfits. We all have strong points and need outfits to accentuate our best body parts. This hub is all about how to look amazing for taller women with different outfits, accessories and styles. Read this hub is you are tall, enjoy fashion and just want to look fabulous.

The maxi dress is made for taller women. Those that are over 5 feet 7 inches will look amazing with a maxi dress. Taller women that love bohemian style should definitely have several maxi dresses / skirts in their closets for spring and summer. A pair of flat leather sandals look very chic when paired with the maxi dress / skirt. I put together several outfits to give you some ideas on how to properly rock the maxi dress. This item is my favorite because it's so feminine and pretty. It will flatter your taller figure and bring the best out of you easily.

During the winter, women want to layer on different clothes to stay warm. One of the trendy items that you can use for causal and professional settings is the sweater wrap. This item is especially flattering for taller women. Shorter women will often disappear with a wrap because it tends to make people look smaller than they actually are. However, taller women will look very chic with a sweater wrap and jeans.

Over these few years, flats are becoming essential items in a person's wardrobe. Taller women are lucky because flats are just made for you. Most shorter and average height women need height boost from heels. However, taller women do not need to look taller because it can be intimidating for their male counterparts that are not gifted in the height department. Flats are fashionable, adorable and will go with lots of different outfits. Here are pictures of some of my favorite flats styles.

If you want a fun look for spring and summer, you should really consider a pair of flare or super flare light blue jeans. Flare jeans are best on taller figures because it tends to make smaller women look even more petite. On the other hand, taller women look very bohemian with flare jeans. For those that are tall and love to wear heels, you should definitely consider flare jeans because it requires heels no matter how tall you are. A taller woman with a pair of flare jeans outfit will look like a model.

Long sweaters are made for taller women. Anything long, oversized or slouchy is fabulous for taller women. Shorter women will disappear with long lengths; taller women will look feminine and in proportion with long, oversized or slouchy tops. Furthermore, a long sweater will provide more warmth because it covers more of your body. Due to that, it is highly recommended for winter or the colder days. Here is an outfit that I put together with a long sweater for taller women.

      I may not be a tall person (sadly, I'm only 5'2") and yet, I appreciate these style tips. Straight forward and I like the pictures you used as examples. Voted up!
