I’ve been asked several times about the best places for taller girls to shop so I decided to enlist the help of one of my followers, Rachel, who is 5’11 with an inside leg measurement of 36″
Rachel was good enough to send me pictures of some of her outfits and share her shopping tips. The first of Rachel’s recommendations is New Look’s tall range. She also loves New Look’s shoe selection which she finds great for bigger feet.
|New Look Tall Skinny Jeans – £9.99
New Look Patent Loafers (old)
Boden Essential Top (old)
Necklace by Uniquely Different – £24
here’s a close up of the necklace…
Rachel also recommends Primark’s Super Soft Tall jeans. Even though they are labelled as 34″ inside leg, they are more than long enough for Rachel. At only £11 a pair, she’s just bought 3 pairs!
Another favourite of Rachel’s is Topshop’s Tall range & Zara…
|Shirt – Zara
Jeans – Topshop Tall
Shoes – Carvela (old)
Rachel’s wardrobe is about 70% Dorothy Perkins as their tall range is very well priced. She picked up this stunning dress there recently..

Maxi dresses are tricky if you’re tall. Rachel’s advice is if you see one you like, try it on. Some regular ranges are surprisingly long at the moment as they are being made for wearing with heels – like this one from Monsoon.

Rachel also managed to find a long enough Maxi in the Next Tall range, another of her favourite destinations, especially for trousers – but not jeans!

Finally, I discovered that Rachel is a Stella & Dot fan also! Loving this silver pendant..

Thanks to Rachel (and Claire the photographer) for sending through these great pictures and sharing all her tips for taller ladies. I hope you found it useful! If you are also tall, please share any hints or tips you have in the comments below – I’d love to know if you shop in the same places Rachel does? Where’s your favourite tall range?
