Taller Than Your Average? - A collaboration between Long Tall Sally and TTYA could be one to watch...

If you are taller than average, you may find it difficult to get stylish clothes to fit because, let's face it, the High Street caters for the masses - and if you happen to fall outside of that fairly narrow bracket, life can get tricky. True, some brands naturally have a good length to them and Topshop and NEXT stock some pieces in store, however those brands that do offer a tall range mainly do so online (ASOS, Boden and GAP) and tends to be fairly limited.

However, Long Tall Sally have a collaboration with Taller Than Your Average (TTYA) which has some amazing pieces in it. I had a good look at it in when I was in House of Fraser yesterday and I was really impressed so I thought that I would share it with you. Take a look and see what you think...

I love these culottes (£45) which also come with a cropped top...


There's also this duster coat (£80) - very OTM,


This pretty mesh pencil skirt (£65) which comes with a cropped top...


This lovely pleated midi skirt (£85) - great dressed up or down with heels or a denim shirt and trainers...


And this sequin top (£55) which is shown with white busted knee jeans (£60)...


If I found buying clothes tricky due to my height, I would see this range as a real godsend. The pieces are well priced and stylish, so whereas shopping might once have been a chore it might well become a joy.  What do you tall ladies think? Have you ventured into TTYA yet and if so were you impressed?

  1. I just want high street stores to realise that not everybody is 5ft5 and a size 10. As 5ft9 and a size 18 I struggle. Next are fabulous but their tall range is, as you say, mostly online. Proportions are one of the main issues. Longer length jeans rarely have a longer waistband to crotch section. Longer length tops rarely have the sleeve length to match but Next seem to realise that. The specialist shops such as long tall sally are amazing as you've shown in your post but unfortunately they are too pricey for the average income.

  2. Hi Kerry, thank you for highlighting this. It's a problem I'm only too aware of. Very few ladies fit within narrow parameters catered for by the High Street, whether it's because they are petite, tall, narrow waist but wider hips, smaller feet, larger feet, tall, curvy bust or a rounded tummy - so knowing the brands and the right shapes helps. I feel your frustration though. Hopefully as time goes by things will get better - I think that they are improving. Slowly. Beth
