Party Dress Style Tips for Tall Girls

Prom dresses, homecoming dresses, sweet 16 dresses, ball gowns, evening gowns, and other junior party dresses come in a wide array of fashions and designs. While taller girls are able to wear pretty much any style and look great, you need to consider your entire figure when choosing a dress, not just your height. Knowing just what style of dress and what types of shoes and accessories best flatter your taller figure will help you to look your finest. Enhance your beauty and confidence with the following tall girls fashion tips for formal wear. Let's party!

  • Create balance in a taller figure by highlighting the waist and creating an hourglass look. It will break up long lines and make you look proportioned. To do this, choose a gown with a fitted waist or with detail around the waistline such as cinching, beading, trim, or ruffles.

  • Tall women are able to pull off styles with details such as trims, ribbons, fringes, or other embellishments.

  • Tiered party dresses give depth and shape to a tall stature.

  • If your shoulders and hips are about the same width, A-line, empire-cut, and sheath dress styles will look fabulous.

  • For tall, skinny girls who are very lanky, you can look fuller with a ball gown dress style as well as A-line, sheath, and mermaid. Keep it floor length.

  • If you are small-chested, choose an empire-cut party dress to create the look of a fuller bust.

  • Cocktail junior party dresses or knee length formal dresses look great for certain special occasions, but go for styles with some sort of detail.

  • A girls prom dress with patterns, high-contrast colors, and different types of materials help break up length.

  • Don't shy away from heels. Even small heels will make your long legs look better than flats.

  • Strappy shoes, chunky heels, and colored footwear break up the leg and balance out your height. Very pointed stiletto heels, on the other hand, can make your legs look disproportionately long.

  • Large and bold accessories flatter tall women and add points of interest on the body. Long necklaces wrapped into several strands or those with chunky beads or pendants are great options. Hoop earrings and long dangles are fabulous on the ears.

  • Carry your necessities in large bags or maxi clutches in a color that contrasts with your dress. If you want patterns, make sure they are bold and large.

  • Most importantly, walk with confidence and pride! Keep a good posture and attitude and everything else will fall into place. You will surely become the belle of the ball.
