This morning when I checked the weather app ahead of my morning run, the temperature was 14 degrees at 8 am. That was a drastic 10 degree difference from the weather I had been used to at that time, but then again we’re officially in the month of September. I took that as an official - yet early - welcome into the new fall season. It also happens to be my favorite!
Who doesn’t love sweater weather? I personally love fall because the weather is just perfect - not too hot and not too cold. Not to mention the beauty of the changing leaves from green to shades of yellow, orange and red. Fall is just great vibes all around, so with that being said, here are some of my Fall Tall essentials that I believe should be in every tall woman’s closet.
A fall staple in every tall woman’s closet should be a cozy cardigan - that’s long enough in the arms. You know when the weather isn’t warm enough to just a t-shirt, but not cold enough for a coat? Well, cardigan, please enter the chat. I would snag the Tall Cozy Cardigan by The Elevated Closet. It comes in a neutral grey and yes, it has pockets! Pair this cardigan with a Tee and leggings for the lounge look, or with a mini shirt and boots for a more chic look. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this cardigan.
An essential part of every wardrobe is a pair of go to jeans. Every woman should have that one pair of jeans (but preferably more) that when you put them on you feel like your best self. Cue Beyonce - feeling myself. Whether you’re into the boyfriend, flare, bootcut or skinny look, you can dress dress every look up or down. I personally love a good skinny jean (even if gen Z tells me they’re no longer in style) because you can dress them up or down, and a great pair will feel as comfortable as a pair of leggings. So you can be comfortable and cute at the same time without having to put too much effort into it. I would recommend the Light Blue All Skinny Jeans by TallMoi. Their jeans are available in plus sizes, inseams 36 and 38 and they have a high rise waistband. Put these on and thank me later!
Let’s be real, if we could we would live in leggings all day everyday. Well, let me introduce you to the Charcoal Chanel Pant by The Sixes, the most versatile leggings that is sure to become your new favorite item. These leggings hug your body in all the right spots and are made for every occasion. Want to dress up but don’t feel like putting on jeans? No problem, the leggings unzip at the ankle creating a fun flare. Pari it with your favorite heel, a cute top and you’re ready to slay the day, minimum effort required. You’re welcome.
For those cooler nights, when you’re out and about, this Faux Leather Tall Jacket by Amalli Talli will become a staple in your wardrobe. Stay warm yet stylish is this cute moto-inspired jacket that will add an edge to any outfit. And yes - the arms will be long enough to keep your wrists warm too!
This wraps up my list of the Five Fall Essentials that should be in every tall women’s closet. With these staples in your closet, you’ll be ready to slay the day. Did I miss anything? What would you add to the list? Comment below! Stay tall and fabulous my friends.
