Casual Labor Day Weekend Look for Tall Men

When I think of Labor Day weekend, a few things come to mind: football, BBQs and weather with just a hint of fall.  Watching football or enjoying a BBQ with friends both call for a comfortable outfit, wouldn’t you agree?

In many places, the weather is still warm enough to get away with wearing shorts and a tee in early September, but it’s always a good idea to have a pullover sweatshirt with you just in case the temperatures drop.  Finish the look with a pair of sneakers and you’re ready for whatever the Labor Day weekend brings your way!

End of Summer Steals Under $50

Do you love end-of-season sales like me?  If so, you’re in luck because I’ve compiled a list of summer steals just for us tall ladies.

You may be wondering whether it’s worth it to buy any more summery items since summer is winding down.  It’s most certainly worth it and here’s why. If you live in climates that are warmer year round (like my home state of California), you can continue to wear most or all of these styles even after summer fades to fall. If you live in a locale that gets chillier in the fall and winter, you can still wear some summer items by pairing them with cold-weather friendly pieces like blazers, tights, boots and jackets. Or, just tuck these steals away and you’ll have some new clothing to look forward to once the warmer weather rolls around.

Out of the two dresses that I chose, my sister bought the coral lace dress and I have the green floral shirt dress.  I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding either dress.  Just ask them in comments section below!

Fall Trends: Womens Booties Under $100

Since I’ve been seeing so many fall lines launch lately, I figured it’s time to turn my attention to some styles for us tall ladies to wear in the cooler weather so that we’re prepared when the temperature eventually drops. Booties are the perfect transitional shoe for fall into early winter because they will keep your feet warm and toasty but still allow your legs to be unhindered by full-length boots.  You can start by wearing them with bare legs in the early fall and then pair them with tall tights or leggings once the weather turns chilly.  If you’re wondering whether or not you’ll be able to pair them with many things in your closet, the answer is simple: you can wear them with almost anything including skirts, dresses, jeans, shorts, jumpsuits.  I think you get the idea!

Here’s my round-up of fabulous booties under $100!

Tall Trends: Men’s Tall Jogger Pants

I was contacted by Tracy who asked me for help in finding some tall jogger pants for her teen son.  To be honest with you, I wasn’t aware of these pants as I though she was referring to sweat pants.  After she sent me a picture, I did some research.  Apparently these comfortable pants are pretty hip right now.  The main characteristic seems to be the tapered, gathered ankle that lets you show off your cool shoes.

This video is helpful if you are wondering what they are and towards the end of the video, you will see them modeled on the tall guy.

 

So, I can’t disappoint all of you.  Tall joggers come in casual materials as well as athletic styles. Below is s my round-up of men’s tall jogger pants. I’ve listed the inseams when they are listed, but some stores don’t list them.

Tall Dresses for a Hot Night Out

Do you ever have that moment of panic when you realize you don’t have anything to wear so a specific event?  This happened to me last week when we decided to go out to a nice dinner with some friends.  I initially wasn’t planning to get too gussied up but then my friend mentioned that she was going to wear a black cocktail dress. Yikes!  I knew I would need to dress up a bit more than originally planned.  To make things just a bit more fun, it was a very hot day with highs in the 90s.  I knew I would need to choose my outfit wisely so that I was comfortable during dinner.

As I was looking through my closet, I noticed that I have a lot of dresses that are suitable for daytime wear and the fabrics of my fancier dresses are not suitable for hot summer nights.  This caused me to go in search of the perfect tall “night-out” dress for summer.  Here are a few of my finds:

For a night out, you can never go wrong with a little black dress.  If you happen to glisten (translation: sweat) a bit in the heat, black fabric will always help disguise that.  Speaking of fabric, this tall fit-and-flare dress is 60% cotton so it should be somewhat breathable and the flowy bottom of the dress will also help keep you cool.  The cap sleeves and split neck are an elegant touch but best of all the dress is currently on sale!

During warmer months, I find it fun to infuse some bold colors into my night-out repertoire.  This dress comes in yellow, blue, orange and black.  I think black and orange would be more suitable for a night-out, while the yellow and blue would work better for daytime.  Pair the dress with a chunky necklace and some killer heels to up the glam factor.

The thought of customizing a dress definitely appeals to me, and eShakti has several dresses in hot-weather friendly cotton fabric. You can either order the standard size or you can input your measurements for a custom size.  You can further customize the dress by playing with the sleeve type and the length of the skirt. The bright pattern of this dress and the figure-flattering fit is sure to turn heads!
