Are you constantly making do with three-quarter length sleeves in tops, blazers and dresses because they’re the only kind that look half decent? Or buying your jumpers super over-sized so that the sleeves meet your wrists, only to find they end up looking a bit mis-shapen and tent-like?
It’s a real novelty when I find long sleeves that actually fit. It’s not something you see much of in our “Tried It On” feature, because while you can occasionally find a long-enough maxi or a pretty knee-length skirt on the “regular” highstreet, it’s nigh-on impossible to find a jacket or top that fits in a long-sleeve style.
Loose in the body but fitted in the sleeves, this ASOS jersey is a great piece for layering under jackets or over blouses and pairing with jeans or skirts.
You can hover over the picture below for links to products that are available. This mint ASOS Premium full midi skirt is in a fab heavy-weight flocked fabric that’s made for running about in stilettos along Bleecker Street in NYC.
These Laboutin-style shoes are a cheap-as-chips £35 from Next and available up to a size 43. They even make my alien toes look almost earthling-like.
Have you found any long-sleeve jackets/ tops or dresses that fit your never-ending limbs? In the specialist Tall ranges or otherwise? Please share!
I’m also in the midst of summer-shopping for a forthcoming sunshine break to Santorini, so expect some pretty maxi skirts and floaty dresses to appear over the next few blog posts. Let me now if you’ve found any yourself. 🙂
