Accessories that Look Terrific on Tall Women

By Krista Mayne

There is nothing more beautiful than a tall woman who knows how to dress well! However, there is not much tall style advice available for tall women. The best tip I can give you is to keep everything in proportion to your tall size. Since you are larger than most of the population, you accessories should be larger too. Here are a few great tips on what accessories look best on tall women.

Tall women look terrific is large hoop earrings, and dangling long earrings. Never wear stud earrings or small hoops as they will look out of proportion with your face and will only make you look larger.

Long necklaces are especially flattering on tall women. You can definitely pull off a chunky bead necklace or a necklace with a funky large pendant. Long layers of pearls wrapped into several strand look stunning on tall women.

As far as bags and wallets go, the bigger the better. Tall women carrying little purses, look terrible! When choosing a bag, remember the 3 B’s – big, bright, or bodacious. You can get away with any style of bag as long as it is long or wide. If you choose a pattern on your bag or purse, make sure the stripes, patterns and dots are very large. Solids are also a great option and bright, big bags are especially great for tall women. A bright, colorful bag is a way to add some interesting variety to your wardrobe.

Wide belts are great accessories for tall women. Don’t even think of wearing narrow belts, as this will make your torso look extra long. A wide belt will hide a lot of trouble areas and give you a great silhouette.

Have fun with accessories. They are a great way to add a pop of color and make an average outfit transform into a stunning tall outfit.
