Can an average tall girl wear Taller than your Average?

Leggy brand Taller Than Your Average has been bringing high fashion to Long Tall Sally since the end of last year. After a flurry of media hype and a certain Jourdan Dunn rocking up to London Fashion Week in a shirt from Long Tall Sally (who would have seen that coming?), the range finally landed, with burnout fabrics, catwalk-worthy silhouettes and a neutral colour palette made for mixing and matching.

But there was a lot of flesh on show in its lookbook (golly LTS… I can see her crotch! That is so unlike you!), and the looks were bold. There were RIPPED JEANS for flip’s sake. Which made me wonder: had LTS gone from safe and reliable to… a little too fabulous overnight? Were its pieces (that look oh so uh-mazing on super skinny Jamie Gunns) actually wearable for a regular tall girl? Could they even be (and I realise I’m stretching things a bit here) suitable for a 30-year-old mother like me?

Thankfully the lovely Alice at LTS sent me a couple of my favourite pieces to try. Let’s see how my roadtest went…

The Duster Coat, £80

The Duster Coat has been a massive trend since the autumn, and since it is typically lightweight in style, works perfectly for spring’s in-betweeny, unpredictable weather. From my sweaty, under-the-duvet post-baby haze I lusted after the pastel blue number Kylie Jenner has been effortlessly sporting with jeans, dresses and just about everything else, so I was really pleased when LTS/TTYA released its own, especially since it’s a true mid-calf length on a six-footer. It’s super soft too.

The Sheer Shirt Dress, £65

After spending ages wondering how I was going to wear it (with a bra and knickers on Croydon highstreet perhaps?) I realised that it works best on me when used as an alternative to the cardigan or kimono. It’s more sophisticated and classic than either of those options too, so I reckon it’ll work well beyond the current season. It looks good thrown over jeans or a lacey festival dress and adds some decency and decorum to a shorts and vest combo (I am a mum now after all).

What are your thoughts on TTYA so far? Anyone made any purchases?

Got so much to share with you after a big long break, including my 30th bday outfit details, some other clothing pics, and a great way to buy and sell second-hand tall clothes coming shortly to ATTT. Stay tuned.
