Looks of the 70s swing into style! POSTED BY LTS Liz 08.30.11
One of the top summer trends this season takes us back to the 1970s, with flowing skirts, draping layers and chiffon blouses. This floaty, laid-back look is perfect for tall women as clothes that are meant to fold gently around curves look best on a tall figure. Long Tall Sally has the right garments that cleverly combine the best of the past and present in clothes for tall women. Film and fashion icon Katie Holmes has been singled out for her style by Marie Claire this week, much of which echoes this retro trend. A tall girl herself, Katie goes for understated trends that look timeless and elegant, and knows that clothes for tall women best streamline her figure. So, it’s no surprise that she’s been taking advantage of the long, pleated dresses and loose, bow-fronted blouses in the current trend. You can get a similar look by shopping at Long Tall Sally. The sheer, brown Tie Deco blouse has a delicate rose print on the fabric, and is perfect for styling with long skirts and wedge sandals. The Leaf Print blouse has a similar colour scheme, but delves into autumnal oranges for a perfect transition piece. A bow at the neck make the top perfect for wearing at the office, while capturing another 70s trend. When browsing through clothes for tall women, look for something that emphasises your lovely long lines. For instance, layer tops with a long draping cardi, choosing one with an uneven hemline to add to the complete look. The Dipped Hem cardi comes to points on either side, and slopes up in the middle of the front and back for a different style that really stands out. The Pleat Detail cardigan can be worn casually but with style, mirroring Katie Holmes’s on-trend pleated skirts and dresses and adding extra drape as well as high fashion to your wardrobe. Long Tall Sally has the perfect looks for tall women. Clothes that are figure-flattering and that have classic looks are always in style, showing off your stellar dress sense as well as your gorgeous height.
