Leggy Lust: The Topshop Autumn Dress

Hi Leggy Lovelies!

A few months ago I introduced a new feature called Leggy Lust, with the aim of spying out the best picks of the specialist Tall retailers like Long Tall Sally and Topshop Tall. It was intended to be a quick, bite-size feature to alert you when a fab new item landed in the shops. But after a few of you left comments expressing concerns about the fit of a few of the designs (yup, even specialist Tall ranges don’t know how to dress us), I decided that we still all need to see the clothes on genuinely tall women, wherever they’re from.I’d hate to direct you towards an item of clothing, have you buy it and then find that it’s way too short. That won’t help anybody.

So, in the interests of bringing you mega useful posts and quality over quantity, I’m going to try and road-test more of the garments. And ask you to as well! Yup, I pretty much make up the rules as I go along…

During the past couple of seasons, the good people at Topshop seemed to have totally lost sight of who they were actually making their Tall clothes for. Cropped tops, shrunken jumpers and teeny weeny camel-toe inducing playsuits are NOT what we need in our lives, actually. We can find those throughout the rest of the store.

But last week I noted a distinct lowering of hemlines amongst the Tall dresses, and some decent long knitwear too. This pretty tea dress is the perfect length and — uncharacteristically for Topshop — actually runs a little on the large side. I’m wearing the size 10.
