Actresses like Nicole Kidman and super models such as Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn could easily make you believe that being tall—from those enviable long legs to a frame that looks flawless in nearly any kind of silhouette—is the answer to all of your wardrobe nightmares. But in reality, shopping for clothing and accessories is just as difficult (if not more so) for women taller than 5 feet 8 inches. Mass market brands construct their clothes for a standard-sized woman (around 5 feet 4 inches), leaving women who are taller than average in fashion Siberia.
Enter British retailer Long Tall Sally. Designed with the vertically blessed in mind, LTS doesn’t just add inches to a sleeve or pant hem—they tailor every item so that it properly and proportionately fits a taller woman. That means denim with inseams up to 38 inches, swimwear specifically designed for a longer torso, and suit jackets with longer sleeves and a tapered waist (in the right spot, of course!).

Sounds like a tall woman’s dream, right? Well luckily for Denver ladies, LTS has opened a new store at the Pavilions. Join me this Thursday evening for the store’s grand opening celebration. Enjoy generous treats and goodies all evening long (you could win a $500 gift card), and I’ll be available to offer styling advice for the brand’s latest collection. Hope to see you there!
