Fashion Mission: Shopping for a Tall or Short Fram
If you love wearing
fashionable clothing but happen to be really tall or short, looking for ensembles may be challenging. It’s frustrating if you have an upcoming event to attend and you’re struggling to come up with something to wear. Instead of feeling like you don’t have a lot of options when it comes to finding silhouettes that fit you and that you adore, here are some tips on what to look for. It may take some altering of clothing and thinking outside the box, but when you’re done shopping you’ll feel like you have many more options to select from your wardrobe.
If You’re Really Tall, Find
Did you know that there are
sites online that make clothing available to really tall people? G&L Clothing is one company online that you can shop for big and tall clothing. When you find a company that specializes in
g and tall clothing and footwear that fits you well, you can feel confident that you’ll be able to find clothing that not only fits you, but clothing that you like. If you have questions regarding sizing, fit, or anything else a quality company will have no problem answering your questions.
If You’re Really Short, Alter
It may seem like a hassle,
but if you happen to find clothing that you love but it’ s too long in length, it’s a lot easier to have the clothing altered as opposed to trying to find clothing that isn’t long enough. If you’re concerned about the extra cost of the item of clothing plus the alteration charge, go to a second hand store and find a pair of quality jeans, for example, instead. It will cost you a lot less to find a pair of great jeans at a second hand store and take it to the tailor as opposed to buying a brand new pair and getting them altered in addition.
If you happen to be an artsy
person or you are good with your hands why not give sewing a shot? Often times you can find free classes at a nearby school or you can teach yourself with a book or online guidance. Making your own clothing will help you ensure that you wear what you love and further more you’ll have a new skill that potentially will help you in other areas of life down the road.
Ask Tall or Short Friends
Word of mouth is always great,
especially if your friends are as tall or short as you are. Ask your friends where they found their most recent tee-shirt you love and hopefully you can find the same one at the store where they found it! Better yet, if you have a friend who loves to shop, ask them if they want to be your shopping buddy. Together you can encounter shops that have clothing that works for your body types. You can spread the word to your other friends and feel happy that you have a few reliable companies you can count on for quality and stylish clothing.
