Make-up, check! Earrings, check! Wrist corsage, check! Fancy dress that fits...hmmm. Junior party dresses in tall girls sizes can be hard to come by, no doubt. And, when it comes to special events, you definitely don’t want to step out in something that just doesn’t fit. Here you will find options and style tips for the perfect special occasion attire to match your gorgeous height.
What exactly do I mean by special occasion? It's any event that requires you to get all dolled up and looking fancy. Prom, homecoming, and other high school formals and dances are great examples, as well as sweet 16 parties and banquets.
When I was in high school, I was 6'0", and I definitely had a hard time finding ball gowns in the right length. When I look back at my prom pictures, I get a good giggle at my "high water" dresses that were supposed to be floor-length (although, it wasn't really funny at the time). Fortunately for teens these days, you have some great choices!
Have you ever shopped at Long Tall Sally online? Many girls shop there for a variety of clothing styles including jeans, pants, and tops. They, also, have a nice collection of dresses and usually you can find a few formal options. Everything at LTS comes in tall sizes. You'll find some examples below.
eShakti is one of the best online sources for tall girl formal junior dresses. They have a huge collection of special event clothes in a range of styles and colors. While they don't come specifically in tall sizes, each piece is customizable on both fit and style by providing your body measurements and design preferences. Most give you a choice of length (knee down to ankle), sleeve type, and neckline. This will get you the formal look you're going for in just the right size. And, in my opinion, the prices are fairly inexpensive for being custom-made. Definitely one to check out. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time for customization and delivery before your special event.
Another possibility for tall girls junior party dresses is to shop at wedding stores. Yes, I know you're probably a bit too young to get married right now, but stay with me on this one. Wedding stores, both online and offline, often sell brands of bridesmaid and special occasion gowns which give an option to add extra length.
House of Brides is an example of one of these kinds of online shops. Once there, try these designers for all kinds of fancy formals with an extra length option: After Six, Alexia Designs, Alfred Sung, Bari Jay, Bill Levkoff, Dessy, Impression, and Jordan Fashions.
Now that you know you really do have options for junior party dresses, how do you choose what style will look the best on you? While girls with above average height are able to wear pretty much any design and look fabulous, you need to consider your entire figure when choosing a dress, not just your height. Shoes and accessories are important, too. So, enhance your beauty and confidence with the following fashion tips for formal-wear.
