And now on to layering, which is no joke. The key to layering as a tall woman is to avoid looking too bulky at all costs. Here are some quick layering tips I’ve learned over the years:
- Wear the heaviest and loosest garments on the topmost layer. In other words, the thinnest and tightest garment should be worn closest to your skin. The point of doing this is to reduce the appearance of bulk. Above, you can see that the blouse is the first layer, followed by the dress, and topped off by the heavy blazer.
- Don’t use too many layers. I usually stick to around three layers max. Again, to avoid looking too bulky.
- Layer longer layers underneath shorter layers. See above how the dress is layered underneath the shorter blazer.
- If you’re layering up top, keep it streamlined down below. A form fitting dress or skinny pant will do the trick.
