Christmas Prezzies for your Leggy Lovelies…

If you’ve got a tall sister, mum, auntie or friend to buy for this Christmas – or your other half is begging you for last-minute suggestions — then here is an assortment of the best long-length Christmas treats on the web. From bargain stocking-fillers to ludicrously indulgent treats, these are the perfect gifts to show some leggy love.

For the girl who would have everything… if everything wasn’t so blooming hard to find…

 

Marvellous Marks

I have a confession to make.

I freakin’ LOVE Marks and Spencer.

Right, hear me out on this one. There really is more to M&S than Percy Pigs. It’s actually an accessory haven for tall women. Yes it is.

I’ve already blogged about its amazing tights (the “extra-large” fit my 36” legs perfectly with even a smidge of stretch left). This season I’m after the banded (very Cheryl) and mock-stocking styles.

Banded and Mock-stocking Tights, both £9.50

Another confession: I have MASSIVE hands. And they’re a nightmare to find gloves for. I’d recently been looking for a pair of wrist-length, super lady-like leather gloves for winter, but most I’d found couldn’t stretch the length of my fingers. These M+S cuties (available in an assortment of colours, but I rather like the mulberry) fit me in a Large and will ward off the frostbite in style.

Luxury Leather Gloves, £29.50

You might even be able to squeeze into some of their generously-sized shoes. If you’re a UK size 9, then it’s possible that some of their size 8 shoes (particularly boots) will fit. It’s certainly not the case with all of them, but last year I found some lovely military-style heeled boots and a pair of silver ballet pumps that fitted the bill. Worth an occasional look.

All the Tall things reader Eleanor is also a fan, writing on the ATTT Facebook page yesterday; “M& S Autograph Collection have fabulous chunky knitwear with really long sleeves”.

So I’m not the only one 🙂

Bow Cloche Hat, £18

And while it might not strictly qualify as a “tall fashion find”, I NEED this hat in my life. Totally gorgeous for autumn but also perfect for the “Downton Abbey” themed fancy-dress party I’m throwing this Christmas (over-the-top? Moi?!). I think it’s got a touch of Lady Mary Grantham about it. And I didn’t look remotely stupid taking a photo of myself wearing it in M&S. God no…

So there you go. I rest my case. M&S can be sexy. And they offer international delivery too.

 

Anyone else craving Percy Pigs now?
