  • Convert the little ones, tunics and mini dresses into tops and wear them with jeans.
  • Boyfriend jeans and pants in 7/8 length visually shorten the figure.
  • Playful details such as ruffles and feminine prints make tall women look daintier and more feminine.
  • Pay attention to the sleeve length of blazers and jackets. A real alternative is the 3/4 arm.
  • Buy flat, rounded-off shoes at the front: The rounded cap makes large feet look smaller.
  • For jeans and basics go to the men's department, sleeves and legs are cut longer.
  • Buy bag not too small (looks out of place).

  • No-No: Highwaist pants and vertical stripes - they make you bigger.
