1. KNOW YOUR MEASUREMENTS

1. KNOW YOUR MEASUREMENTS

Everybody is built differently, so styles won’t fit the same for all women. By knowing your measurements before you buy, you can pick out pieces that fit like a glove and be confident you won’t have to return the looks you loved.

When finding your measurements, record your bust, waist, hips, height, and inseam. Many women differ in leg and torso length, so while two women may be the same height, their inseam may be dramatically different, so it’s important to know your own specific measurements.

Confidence is a powerful tool in fashion; whether you’re faking it or not, others will start to see you as a trendsetter and someone who knows what she’s doing with her style. A key to quickly getting confident with your looks is styling with clothes that are comfortable to wear, which is why Alloy makes Bottoms, Jumpsuits, Jeans and more that fit you in all the right places.

3. DEFINE YOUR CURVES

Balancing height with curves doesn’t have to be a balancing act. With strategic styling, you can both embrace your tall stature and celebrate your curves. Use a belt to create an instant hourglass figure, choose high-waisted jeans for an elongated, curved silhouette, and invest in fitted dresses to accentuate your natural figure. Remember, the right style can be a powerful tool to define and highlight your silhouette, letting your confidence shine through in every ensemble.

4. TEST OUT TEXTURES

Add an interesting twist to your tall style by mixing different fabrics. A combination of satin, leather, and denim can bring a fun contrast to your outfit. Pair leather pants with a satin blouse for a modern edgy look. Slip on a plush velvet blazer with a pleated jumpsuit for a sweet mix of fancy and casual. By adding and mixing textures, you can bring new depth to your outfits that make them stand out without being too loud.

5. PLAY WITH PATTERN & COLORS

The best way to find your style and outfits that look great on your tall frame is to play around with bold patterns and vibrant colors. Horizontal and vertical stripes are also great for adding dimension and playing up the elongated figure or you can mix patterns like polka dots with stripes to give more playfulness to your look. Experiment with the clothes in your closet and you’ll be surprised with how a simple change in patterns and colors can completely transform your look.

6. BALANCE YOUR PROPORTIONS

6. BALANCE YOUR PROPORTIONS

Balancing your proportions in an outfit can drastically change the overall look and feel of it. Opt for a look that blends well from the top to the bottom, meaning you make sure your look isn’t too top-heavy or bottom-heavy or both. The best way to do this is to find your body type (i.e. Hourglass, Apple, Triangle, etc) and matching pieces to help certain areas stand out. For example, someone with broad shoulders can balance their style with flare pants or someone with a smaller upper body can opt for a wide-sleeve top to add volume.
