Tried It On: Wedding Guest Midi Dress

Wedding season is in full swing, and 6’2 ATTT reader Sarah is here to help you out with your long-length wedding guest fashion dilemmas.

Sheer is a key trend for this season, and Sarah’s managed to nail the look with a dress that’s still demure and ladylike enough for a wedding. She found this amazing electric blue stripy number in Warehouse at a not-too-ridiculous-for-a-special-ocassion price of £50. Love the length and the fact that it nips in exactly where Sarah’s waist is supposed to be.

Extra bonus points for wearing chunky high heels (New Look, £19.99) and colour-blocking to perfection. Sarah, ordinarily a size 43, writes, “The shoes are wide-fit and an 8/42 was plenty big enough, but they do a 9/43 which was massive”.

I think those shoes would look just fabulous with skinny jeans for a girly night out too. New Look actually do this shoe style in 3 other colours up to a size 43, if you’re looking to co-ordinate/ colour-clash with your own outfit.

Let me know if you find any pretty wedding-worthy dresses or shoes that will fit a tall figure. You can email laura@allthetallthings.com or tweet @tallthings

  1. Hi Laura! Great post and very good outfit ideas to wear in different occasions. Love the shoes (both its color and price!).
    I found this Little Mistress jumpsuit in ASOS tall brands which I’m considering for a weeding:
    Little Mistress Jumpsuit
    It’s both elegant and trendy and, changing accessories, can also be used for many other events (without falling into the typical wedding dress look).

    Since in Spain tall girls clothing is difficult to get, and in case you’d like to drop by, I’ve posted a review of great shops for tall girls on antes Alta que sinsilla

  2. Cute. Love that colour. Also really liking the sheer trend at the moment and wondered if you’ve seen any dresses or skirts in tall friendly length with a sheer strip across the bottom?

  3. I know what you mean Kay and I’ll keep an eye out. Think Sarah looks gorge x

  4. Just noticed, while browsing in general, that the dress has been added to the Warehouse sale, and is now only £30 online http://www.warehouse.co.uk/stripe-plisse-midi-dress/all/warehouse/fcp-product/4563079431

    I am 6 foot 2 and bought this dress from River Island, it has a sheer panel at the bottom and fits really nicely, was so happy to find something in this style that’s flattering on a taller person. The dress fits perfectly!
