A lot of people ask me about beauty tips and style. Now another reader and a friend of mine asked for tips on how well she could dress herself and what type of clothing fits her height. I envy tall girls because they have a chance to join to a beauty contest, modeling and they don't need to always wear high heels :) But still i learned to love the blessings that God gave me :)) hihihi....
Anyhoo, to tell you dolls honestly, i'm not an expert when it comes to fashion and make-over but i'm happy to share the things that i know and read so here it goes.....
You know that tall girls make clothes look great! So if you're going to do your height proud remember a few golden tall rules: "Don't slouch - it will make even the most gorgeous clothes look bad."

*Clothes that show off your waist give you a better figure. Baggy clothes or clothes with straight lines make you look longer. If you are going to wear a baggy top - team it with skinnies; and if you like a wide leg style wear it with a fitted top - never wear baggy top and bottom!
*Separates tend to show of your waist better and keep you in proportion. If you are wearing a dress try to buy one with that has a shaped bust or fitted waist. Again, this breaks up long lines and helps you look well proportioned.
*With bright colours try not to wear the same colour top and bottom. This accentuates your size and draws attention to it! Keep bright colours to one section only - try our coloured tops with neutral colour trousers like black, denim or stone.
*Don't go over the top! Don't try to make yourself feel more feminine by wearing excessive make up, a shorter skirt etc. You can end up looking like a drag queen! To look more feminine, be subtle and elegant
*Walk with confidence. If you feel good you will look good. Even the worst clothes look great on a model. It's all in your posture and attitude.
*Try to wear clothes that fit. Clothes that are made for the average height girl have darts, waist and hip lines in the wrong position - garments will look baggy on your waist (hiding your figure), tight on your hips and your bust will look squashed. You will feel uncomfortable - and look it too.
*Tall girls look great in wide belts - this also helps to make the body look in proportion.
*Long legs look great in skinny jeans; tall girls are the privileged people who can carry off this look. If you want to slim your legs wear them with heels; but if you’re blessed with skinny pins flats will give you a more relaxed look.
*If you’re not a ‘skinnies’ kind of girl wide legs or sexy slouch jeans look equally as good on tall girls - where your vertically challenged friends may look swamped by an extra wide flare you will simply show it off to perfection.
Tips: When selecting tops, avoid necklines that are too close to, or hide, your neck - such as crewnecks and turtlenecks. Doing so accentuates your long torso in an unflattering way. Instead, choose button-down shirts, or tops with V-necks, scoopnecks, or ruffles to visually break the length of the torso, and direct the eye toward design details and jewelry. If you do wear turtlenecks, always accent with a beautiful scarf or an interesting, long necklace.
