I’m back from my summer hiatus to feature this killer dress from TTYA London‘s new line!
London-based former model and fashion stylist Irene Agbontaen created TTYA London (Taller Than Your Average) – an apparel brand offering accessible, modern, functional pieces that are specifically cut for women who are 5’9” or taller, as well-fitting staple pieces that are the foundation to effortless style, whatever your height or size.
Since its inception in 2013, TTYA London has garnered a cult following including celebs such as Jourdan, Karlie Kloss, Elle Macpherson, Jessie J, Daisy Lowe and Wendy Williams as the go to fashion label for tall girls!
The dress featured is called the Atlanta Dress and it’s a perfect fit for us long legged tall ladies!
The dress features a fitted sweetheart dress that hugs your curves in all the right places. I was very impressed with the quality of the internal dress as it was well structured and featured a thick material that hid any imperfections.
The internal dress was then layered with a mesh knit fabric that is reminiscent of the 80’s vibe that has been featured on countless runways recently.
The sleeves of this dress fit well over my wrists!! Tall Girl score!!!
Now most midi dresses fit me right at the knee but this dress has been tailored just for us tall girls! At 6 feet tall this dress hits me mid calf – right where midi dresses should fit.
TTYA is one tall brand that I always anxiously anticipate their collection and as usual they delivered us tall women fresh and fierce fashion.
The dress was shot at Jos A Magnus & Coa local DC bourbon distillery which is perfect for date night with that special someone or just a damn cool spot to vibe with friends.
I’ve been in love with the off shoulder trend and have been collecting various pieces. I saw this ruffle off shoulder dress in a brilliant green color and had to grab it. I decided to pair the green off shoulder dress with red heels.
The green dress featured a doubled tiered ruffle layer that added a flirty touch to the dress. While this dress isn’t tall specific it hit me mid thigh and well it’s summer so why not show some leg.
Of course I needed a bright color to match the brilliance of the dress so I opted for the Sheikh Shoes red fringe heel I purchased earlier this year.
The Limited Tall launched their tall line about two years ago. I always loved The Limited for solid career clothing so when they launched their Tall line I was ecstatic. I was browsing the Tall section and came across this Tall Soft Trench Look Dress.
The trench dress has been a fashion trend I have been following for a few years so I was pretty happy to see a Tall version of this dress offered. The sleeveless dress features an oversized shawl collar and a tie belt for a defined waist. The dress is made of a crepe fabric which reads much more expensive than its very reasonable price tag. The dress was fully lined making it appropriate for work. Even though the dress is Tall it still hit me a few inches above the knee so women taller than 6 feet should be wary of the length.
I paired the dress with the Nine West Lieluh heels. I stumbled on the Lieluhheels in the Nine West store and instantly fell in love. They originally came up to a size 12 but these babies sold out immediately! I stalked the website for about twice a day until a size 10.5 appeared. I purchased that bad boy immediately because I knew I wasn’t the only one stalking this heel. The Lieluhheel features a multi-color pop art print. The toe strap features a braided pattern and the center strap is a unique black and white windowpane print. This shoe is so dope and I’m glad I was able to snag a pair before they sold out.
Here are a few other trench dress options to achieve the look.
I am loving the boho festival dresses retailers have been releasing for the Spring festival season. I snagged this ASOS TALL Swing Dress With Gypsy Shoulder Detail and Lace Insets for $28 during the ASOS outlet sale and it was a steal!
I love these swing dresses because they are extremely comfortable and obviously hide any body flaws. This is the dress you could wear to all you can eat brunch or a family barbecue and remain stylish and comfy.
I paired it with ASOS Silver Chunky Heel Sandals for a clean and classic finish. These sandals are sold out but a similar pair can be found on ASOS and runs up to Size 11.
Once again Ankara Streets delivered on this African Print Mini Dress. The dress is a modification of the Z’Lia Wrap Dress. I knew the Barbados weather would be hot so I asked for shortened sleeves and hemline.
The dress features a brown, yellow and hot pink print. The wrap dress adjusts to fit any bustline and cinches in the waist. The dress features a skater skirt and I loved showing off my long legs in the mini length. I kept things minimal and paired the outfit with gold sandals.
Tall women are blessed with long legs which instantly make any outfit look elegant. If you got em flaunt em ladies! The DC weather has been really crazy where one day it’s 78 degree and the following day it’s 35 degree days. Looking back at these photos I miss that tropical weather AND my tan!!
