Summer dresses are the true hallmark of summer days. They’re the ultimate symbol of long days and warm sunshine. Putting on the right summer dress can boost your confidence and put you in a vacation state of mind. They translate well as effortlessly chic, they’re a straightforward outfit to style and are designed to keep you cool while looking on-trend.
But what is the main concern for a summer dress as a tall woman? Length of course! Length varies greatly from dress to dress and it can be challenging to find the right one for your tall stature. So, we curated a fabulous list of the best summer dresses that are bound to work for tall women, to keep you feeling flouncy and free all summer long!
Easy, Breezy, Maxi-Dresses
What we love about maxi dresses is their versatility. Maxi-dresses are designed to be elongated and long, reaching the ankle area or past, right to the floor. What we tall women do not want is that cute maxi becoming a midi. Big no! Below are dresses that we are confident will hit you in all the right places.
For a casual daytime look, we suggest this fitted maxi that is available in black, yellow and purple. It’s both figure-hugging and comfortable, made of a polyester and spandex blend. There is also this tank floral dress available in two lovely shades.
This black maxi t-shirt dress with a raised waistline (and hidden pockets!!!) is a real go-to for summer. It's super easy to throw on and you can add to it with the help of accessories. If you're heading to a daytime event, picnic party, or even a day date, this floral pattern maxi dress is a perfect choice. Plus, its orange, white and blue colour scheme is memorable and unique!
The right maxi dress is perfect for an evening event—and let's be honest, summer is the season of weddings, right?! Despite the wrap dress being created in the early 1970s by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg, they are making a big comeback and are flattering for all body types, including tall women. This wrap dress in both fuchsia and bright green is an unreal choice. It's strappy with a natural slit, beautifully showcasing the legs.
The ideal date night dress is this effortlessly sexy cutout number in both white and black floral featuring a strappy back. Another favourite maxi is the memorable Seychelle’s dress which is a two-piece dress set, featuring flowy ruffles and eye-popping colours to help you stand out!
The term “midi” is for any dresses that reach between two inches below the knees to just above the ankles. If you feel your legs are too long for this, we urge you to try again because they’re extremely flattering and can elongate your torso and legs!
There are a lot of cute and casual midi dresses that are ideal for summer days. This sleeved tiered mini dress is designed to be perfectly relaxed and flowy and comes in mocha and ruby shades. Designed with a classy, collared neckline and tailored seams, this midi denim dress with front pockets and an adjustable belt is extremely flattering.
For all you female entrepreneurs out there, we appreciate how hard it can be to find an elegant dress for the office during summer. We got you. This fitted midi is reversible, meaning you get two for one, and is tailored and sleek. There is also this sophisticated midi dress too that is polished, in black and navy.
Let’s hear it for those long, long legs!! Why not show them off with a mini dress?! These cute numbers sit right above the knee, not unlike mini skirts as the hemline typically hits mid-thigh.
Mini’s are great for summer daytime events, pool parties, and going out in the evenings. Let's start with the snowflake dress, a jaw-dropping essential that is form-fitting and strapless, that can easily be dressed up or down. We can’t get enough of the sexy Kylie dress in green, which gives off 70s vibes, only elevated. Did we mention it also comes in blue?!
Summer Time Style
Now that you’ve packed away your sweaters and jackets (sigh, temporarily) it's time to replace them with a stylish wardrobe of sweet summer dresses. These fleeting months should be focused on being outside, having fun, and not having to overthink your outfits! That's why summer dresses rock: you can dress them up with sandals or heels, statement jewelry or not, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the gorgeous summer—and look good doing it.
