Blue and white stripes have been a hot trend since spring and they’re still going strong. On the hunt for an affordable high street vibe, we challenged ourselves NOT to go to the usual sources of tall fashion and only allocated a budget of £50. It was easier than we thought and we’ve stumbled across some classic looks that we hope will inspire you to add this iconic trend to your wardrobe.
So embrace the Monday blues, rock some stripes and have a browse through this little lot!
First up is Boohoo.com. OK, so from what our #teamtall community tells us, it’s not for the super-tall women among us but if you’re coasting on the lower end of the tall scale, why not snap up several bargains with up to 70% off. The low prices mean that you could pick up all three of our striped selection for £34… well under budget!
Marks & Spencer
M&S has been a staple on the British high street since 1884 and a lot of their lines come in longer length. They have added embroidery and lace to the classic blue & white stripes and number 3 is a favourite of ours here at Tall Guides Magazine.
Tall Tip: If sleeves run a little bit short, roll them up for a more casual look. In colder months, you can pair with cashmere wrist warmers.
Missguided is sometimes known as one for the younger, slimmer crowd (their sizing only goes up to a UK16) but they do have some great styles and the prices are friendly! If Missguided is your thing, you can currently enjoy 30% off 1000+ styles using code: OMG30.
Dorothy Perkins is great for affordable tall fashion. And they’ve currently got a sale on. It’s certainly worth checking out their tall collection if you’re looking for a wardrobe refesh. Number 3 isn’t striped but it is blue and under £20 so it made the cut!
Simply Be celebrates curves so that gets a thumbs up from us and they’ve really surprised us with their blue & white selection. Not branded as tall, their lengths are impressive and we simply love all of these!
This beautiful merino scarf from Boden (use code: 6TsC) slides in just under budget but we think it’s worth it. Boden deliver on quality. And it’s one of those wardrobe classics that’ll be with you for many years to come.
Superdry are bang on trend with their nautical stripe pencil case. And just in time for back to school / work!
Last but not least! We’re off to Oasis. Time to pick up a striped shopper, complete with pom poms, to put all our new fashion finds in!
