Does your tall stature make it difficult to find outfits that are perfect for you? If so, don’t lose hope—with the right style tips and strategies, you’ll find outfits that are complimentary to your individual lifestyle. The important thing to remember is: great style can be achieved by everyone. It’s not about the latest trends or the perfect figure—it’s about clothes that fit your body perfectly and make you feel confident.

Tips for the tall:

·        Ask about back stock: During a shopping outing, if you don’t see the pants you like in a long, make sure to inquire about back stock. Since many retail stores tend to receive a fairly large stock of merchandise, they don’t necessarily put all of one product out on the floor. This is why it’s important to ask a sales clerk if they will check in the back to see if there are any more longs in stock. Often, stores such as Banana Republic can ship you a long from another store location, or you can purchase a long from the online store.

·        Only purchase clothes that fit: When frustration sets in, do not submit. The key to great style is the perfect fit. Wearing clothes that don’t fit correctly won’t compliment your body type and will therefore make you feel less confident. Once you find the perfect fit you will naturally radiate great style and confidence.

·        Pay close attention to the hem: When purchasing shirts or pants, be sure to check the length of the hem on sleeves and pant legs. Hems can be adjusted if need be, but there must be enough hem to allow adjustment for a tailor. For example, if you try on a pair of pants that are a bit too short, look at the hem to see if you can take it out an inch or two. If so, the pants are fair game to purchase. Just make sure the waistline also fits perfectly. By using the hem as an option to lengthen pants, you can more easily find outfits that fit right for you, as oppose to simply purchasing pants that are already the perfect length—something almost impossible to find.   

·        Remember to bring your heel: If you’re planning to wear a heel with pants, bring or wear the heel to the store to make sure the pants will be long enough—you don’t want your pants to high-water.

·        Don’t forget about dresses: If you ever have trouble finding pants, dresses are another excellent option for many occasions. When the weather gets a bit chillier, instead of pants, opt for a maxi dress. These long dresses look great on tall figures and cover legs to hold in more warmth.

The Key to Your Powerful Brand Image

More often than not, each piece of your brand image was created when you needed it, but not altogether in a strategic fashion. Your image may look fine, but does fine help you grow?

Eventually as you scale, your image foundation cracks, and the way your business presents itself no longer helps propel growth – costing you time and money to fix.

When you unlock your brand power, you get to pick and choose how people perceive you and your brand.

Our Image Mastery System™ takes the 5 key brand components that you already have and ties them together in a way that amplifies your results and achieves your vision.

I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.

Donna Terrell, Criminal Defense Attorney

It is hard to explain why Lee is so brilliant at what she does because it is almost like magic. She pierces through your personality and reflects who you are in what you wear. She does not just pick out great clothes – she picks an outwardly appearance that creates a comfort zone while also allowing the world to see the real you.

Nate Casey, Entrepreneur

Working with Lee has dramatically increased my revenue, not because of what I’m wearing but because of how I show up when I am dressed like my future self.

Angela Lauria, The Difference Press

When I reflect on who I was before working with Lee, I see that everything about me was a muted version of who I am today. And thanks to Lee’s incredible gift, I’m me. I now show up every single day: as the thought-leader Lee helped me dress to become (and be).

Hillary Walsh, Esq., New Frontier Immigration Law

Thank YOU! It was such a fantastic mini-class you took us through. You got everyone really into it! I can hardly believe that I actually had to cut them all off. You are a force! We are very lucky to have had the benefit of your help and we’re all better for it.

Megan Graves, Client Happiness & Team Happiness Coordinator, Upleveling Your Business

You are amazing!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about our conversation all day and this is just brilliant – you are a strategist and creative genius. Your vision completely resonates with me. I am so grateful for you, Lee.

Kelly McGrath, Esq., Kelly McGrath Law

Lee had a surprising way about her that uncovered my deeper self, my reason for being, and encoded it onto my wardrobe like a symbol—a moment-by-moment reminder of who I am, and what I’m here to do. Her brilliance crept up on me; I didn’t realize it was her behind the changes in my life until months afterwards. Now, I am able to approach everything I do from a place of power.

Jonathan Sparks, Esq. Sparks Law

Lee brings to life a vision bigger than I imagined. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on my personal brand, photo shoot strategy, and the brand experience of events for my non-profit. Through each piece she’s helped me grow as a leader and an organization. I love having her on my team.
