Having larger feet can make shoe shopping a bit of a challenge, the should-be magical words of ‘shoe shopping’ actually sends us into a bit of a panic. Few stores stock anything larger than an 8, and those who do often sell out immediately. However, since the 20th century the average shoe size for women has grown and is still growing! It is nothing to be ashamed of and more of something to be proud of, check out our collection of shoes for tall women – and yes, you can wear heels!

Us tall girls have more than a few perks: actually being able to see at a gig, being able to reach that chocolate from the top shelf in the supermarket without toppling the whole shelf and making heads turn by simply putting on a pair of heels. But as we know, the shopping #struggle is more than real. Here at 6 Foot Fashion, we have created a list of our most relatable tall girl problems…

#1 Ladders After Ladders

 

Are you a girl who is always trying to find a pair of tights that won’t slip down past your knees before the end of the morning commute?

Whether your legs are long, or your torso is longer, it can be seriously tricky finding a pair of tights that won’t force you to pull them up so much that they rip holes in your feet. Tights can put us tall girls in a bad mood right from the beginning of the already stressful day, and when you’re laddering 2-3 pairs a week from wiggling and stretching just to keep them on, it becomes a financial burden similar to a bank loan – a burden we don’t deserve.

Why not check out our range of Falke Tights, ideal for travel, long days at work and fab nights out – ladder free!

#2 Dress or a Shirt?

That feeling when you order the perfect dress for the wedding in the summer… it arrives and it fits you like a t-shirt or something you may have worn when you were a teenager.

I’m sure by now you will be more than used to the disappointment of your dress looking like you’ve forgotten your trousers, but here at 6 Foot Fashion we have solved this problem, we have a wide range of dresses for tall women which take out the anxiety of online shopping.

#3 ‘Cropped Jeans’

Finding jeans that go past your ankles can be an impossible task. Us tall girls have a wardrobe full of ‘fashionably cropped’ jeans – and having to play it off as if we bought them with that intention.

Our trousers for tall women are carefully designed to suit any body type and are guaranteed to not give you that ankle chill!

#4 Chilly Wrists

When we’re not wasting time pulling up our tights were trying to pull down our sleeves. Us long-limbed girls may be able to find gloves that fit us in the winter but when our sleeves are too short our wrists suffer.

Check out our tall women tops, tunics and shirts to ensure you keep the ¾ length sleeves deliberate.

TOP 4 TIPS FOR FEELING CONFIDENT WHEN YOU’RE TALL

1. DRESS YOUR BEST FEATURES AND MAKE SURE IT FITS.

Having great style first comes from feeling comfortable in your clothes and showing off your best features to ooze confidence. What’s your best features? Maybe it’s your legs, bust, waist, shoulders etc. But in order to show your best features the item has to fit all in the right places. Wearing clothes that fit you perfectly will change the way you feel instantly, you feel more confident! whether that’s the perfect length, style, fit of a dress or fit of bottoms.

2. LET YOUR PERSONALITY SHINE

First impressions are always important, first they see your clothes then they get to know your personality. When you’re happy and confident, people will pay more attention to your personality than your height. People will probably always make comments, many times they are paying you a compliment, so don’t get embarrassed. Smile and thank them.

3. WALK WITH CONFIDENCE

Stand tall, dress to impress and remember what you wear does not have to be expensive, it just requires your attention to think about what will make you feel good and confident to make you walk with confidence. Lengthen your stride, a hunched appearance projects a lack of confidence. Choosing your outfit the night before is a great way to identify what you might not feel comfortable in for the day ahead, so try things on, look at yourself in the mirror. Do you feel confident?

4. COMPLIMENT YOURSELF EVERYDAY

You are precious, so awesome and beautiful! It’s so important to love ourselves, I always tell my clients you have to Love & Style the body you have because this is you. Daily affirmations is something I’ve learnt to do and can really have a big boost on your confidence. I have not always been confident with my height until about 10 years ago. At less once a day, say something that you enjoy about being tall. Write it down in a journal or pin those words to your pin board.

Personal Stylist & Tall Girl

Hello, I am Athina Boubouli, a freelance blogger, journalist and fellow tall girl, and I was lucky enough to have a quick sit down with Kelly Scott, the founder of 6 Foot Fashion. I wanted to know how it started, why it started and what is in store for the future, so take a look here:

1) When was the moment you decided to create 6 Foot Fashion and why? At the time, I was working in fashion wholesale and I was able to experience just how clothes were made and the process behind it. I though ‘I can do that’, so I did. I am 6’1″ and had always struggled to find clothes that fit, so I knew my market!

2) How did you go about setting up the business and creating it all? What was the best part and the hardest part? I came up with a name, spent time planning and researching, left my job and the rest is history in a way. The hardest part was leaving security of a job and a salary and the best was working for myself and not answering to anyone 😉

3) So 6 Foot Fashion is clearly inspired by tall women, for tall women. What would your advice be to all the tall ladies out there who not only struggle to find fashionable clothes that fit, but how to feel comfortable in their own skin? It is easier said than done, but you have to embrace it as you can’t change it. I noticed around the age of 18/19 that I didn’t stand well and I was  nervous or embarrassed about my height but I realised that I had to find a way to love it and work with it, but I think that also comes with time. But most importantly, wear clothes that fit you properly. There is nothing worse than tugging at the sleeve of a top or something like that. It makes it more obvious and you will feel less confident for it, so dress well and dress to suit your height, as it will make you feel better from within.

4)How would you describe your own personal style? It is relaxed and easy. I  am a mum of 2 boys so I am always on the go, so I need something simple that looks good, for example jeans and a shirt.

5) How do you stay up to date with the fashion industry and what trends are you currently noticing for SS18? I go to all the fashion trade shows, watch the fashion week shows, and also keep up to date on social media.  Whatever trend it is, it always had to work for a tall woman so that is always at the back of my mind too.For SS18 we are seeing a lot of colour, of course, and also this kimono/pyjama style trend is huge and I think it also works really well for tall women, with wide leg trousers etc, which we have in the Kelly Scott London collection (Meghan trouser)

6) Not only do you sell other brilliant lines of clothing but you have also designed your own. Where did this inspiration come from and do you have a favorite designer? The Kelly Scott range came about as there were a lot of things that you just couldn’t buy elsewhere, for example a jacket, as the lines are just all out of place. Also we wanted more flexibility and choice so it was the natural way forward for us. The inspiration for the collection came from what I was missing in my wardrobe and then it took off from there.

Too hard to mention 1 designer, but I love DVF and Tory Burch, just for their femininity and ease of wear really.

7) What do you feel is the most important thing that your brand/website has to offer and what makes your brand so unique? Most importantly, it is run by tall women, so we really know what the struggles are and how to make clothing fit. We are also a smaller company, and we work at things on a personal level, for example, I am at the factory in London every week, working with the various aspects of quality control and fabric. It has my name on it so it has to be good quality. And also I think we listen to our customer and when they write to us on social media, we take the time to listen and respond whether it be positive or negative.

8) So you are about to relaunch your website! What new things shall we expect to see? Better imagery, easier to use, more choice and options. It is just a bigger and better version of what we had really. There has been a lot of thought gone into it so I hope our customer likes it.

9) What’s in store for the future of 6 Foot Fashion and Kelly Scott London? Who knows? I always believe in doing something good or not at all, so there is always the option of expanding the ranges but it has to be right and the best quality.
