I know you can’t tell but I have a hard time finding clothes…that fit properly because of my height. If you are new to this blog I am just a smidge under six feet, the average woman is 5’4″ or 5’5″. That means when trying to find a jumpsuit I have 7 to 8 inches extra. Banana Republic recently added more tall options for consumers (click here) and I was finally able to purchase a jumpsuit that. I can’t share the link with all my tall girls because it is sold out. I hate posting outfits if I haven’t worn them out, plus it was -20 (-40 with windchill) degrees Celsius in Toronto not too long ago so no way was I going outside to take photos in that weather. So now you can’t get it, I may have to reconsider this rule if I find “tall girl” clothes.

I wore this jumpsuit for my friend’s 40th birthday dinner celebration at The Wolseley in London. I just love it and because it’s black I can go crazy with accessories and shoes.

    I feel your pain, Iva! I’m just shy of 6 foot tall, and it’s not only the lack of longer lengths that often frustrates (although the situation is slowly improving in the UK, it has to be said), it’s also the fact that most tall ranges seem to add on length, but skimp on cut. Lovely jumpsuit, I have one that I found on sale last Summer, and I have yet to wear it. I must dig it out once the weather improves… xx


    I love this look and the tall jumpsuit! I’m six feet myself and have only found a couple of jumpsuits that fit me here in Norway. We don’t have tall ranges, so I have had to size up, which means that the jumpsuits get wider than intended. At least I keep the camel toe at bay… 😉


      The dreaded camel toe! I have linked a few ASOS options for jumpsuits that may be delivered to Norway? We don’t have many options in Canada either. Online is getting a bit bitter, I hope that it changes. They’ve got lots of petite options but we are left out.


    So cute! I have a long torso and am also tall so I have issue with jumpsuits… I will have to check out the Banana Republic tall section!!

    How timely is this post?! I just bought a cheapie target jumpsuit to “up” my playground attire. I love how you styled yours. I will be pairing with Jean jacket and toms.


    Wow.. you are tall! I love this jumpsuit on you. The color also has a slimming effect and you look stunning in it 🙂
