My New Happy: Highlight Your Tallness

Highlight Your Tallness

Happy Wednesday and welcome to TBB Style with The Blended Blog.  Our fabulous hostess this week is Abbie, so be sure to pay her a visit and add your post to the link up!

Today we're sharing an outfit that highlights our assets.  Admittedly, at 51 years of age, I'm still not very good at buying things that work best for my body.  I tend to be impulsive with my fashion choices, and if I like something, it goes in my closet.  And then it sits there because it's not right for me and I shouldn't have bought it.  Something to work on.  

This, however, is an outfit I should wear more often.  Have I mentioned that I'm tall?  Yes? I feel like I talk about it all the time, because truthfully I've always wished I could chop a few inches off my height.  But it is what it is, so lately I've been wearing higher heels and embracing my verticalness.  (Hmm...spell check says that isn't a word...but Google says it is, so it's staying).

I'm wearing a column of color which elongates the body and makes you appear taller.  The sweater coat breaks up all that black and adds visual interest.  It could probably be a bit longer, but I think the proportions still work.  If you want to look like you've suddenly grown a few inches, this is one way to go.

How about you?  Do you dress for your body type, or is it a free for all like me?

  1. Yes, to embracing your tallness! As a shorty I have always thought if I were tall I would hold my head high and accent it as much as possible. :) You look amazing in this and that floral cardigan is a fabulous piece! I think I try to dress for my body type and highlight my assets, but still like playing around with it a bit.

  2. This is an amazing outfit, Lana!! You definitely have to wear it tons!!
    And you know how we always want what we don't have. If I had legs like yours.....just sayin'

  3. Girl, you are supermodel tall and amazing with those long legs! But I know what you mean about impulse shopping - I have a whole pile of it in my room waiting to go to goodwill!

  4. Isn't funny what we want - I wish I was taller - and I think how blessed you are for height! I try to be really conscious of what works for me - but there are those times. I have this "cow" sweater in my drawer that I am not sure what I was thinking.
