Long Tall Sally Autumn/Winter 2012 Picks

Having spent some time studying the new season Long Tall Sally Catalogue, and tried several pieces on whilst in Birmingham last weekend, here are my picks from the A/W collection for tall girls.
Leather jacket £200 

Ah, the ultimate dream: to own this jacket. I have heard many good reports about this but didn’t dare to try it on for fear of loving it and then spending many months mourning the fact that I can’t afford it. I will stick with my Topshop Tall faux leather moto jacket a while longer until I win the lottery.

Blue fleece £35

I bought this fleece as I have never, in my whole life, had a fleece jacket that fits me properly. They’ve always been too big or unisex in order for the sleeves to be long enough for me. Not only are the sleeves long enough on this one, but it had thumb holes (love those!) to keep my hands warm in the winter and it’s a lovely fitted shape in the body.

Faux fur collar coat £150

I could do with a new coat this winter and this one is lovely, but it’s also £150. A little out of my price range I feel.

Teal funnel neck coat £110

I just love the colour of this but again, it’s pricey. Back to searching eBay for me I think.

Tweed jacket £130

How fabulously Chanel is this? And properly proportioned for tall ladies. I’d love to pair this with a simple white t and jeans, or over my favourite black dress.

Richmond jeans £50

I love the idea of bright blue jeans and this pair are fabulously long, coming in a 36” leg.

Hoodie £45

I tried this on last weekend and absolutely loved it! The sleeves are long, the body is so long it covers my bum, and it’s lovely and thick and super cosy for commuting to the gym in the winter. Or snuggling up on the sofa. There are stretchy panels in the sides which make it really easy to put on and take off. This came home with me.

Stripe top £28

I tried this on last weekend and loved it too, but I have more than enough striped tops so I reluctantly put it back. But the burgundy and cream is a refreshing take on the Breton stripe and burgundy is an on trend colour for this season.

Spot blouse £50

It’s navy, it has polka dots, and the sleeves are lovely and long. What’s not to love?

Roll neck £40

You know how I love my roll necks in the winter and this red shade is one I didn’t previously own, so I had to add it to my collection.

Colour block dress £75

How flattering is this dress? Perfect for work or play, it would look awesome with a black roll neck under it or a jacket or cardi over it. And heels of course. Always heels.

Tunic dress £55

If I could figure out how tall the model is who is wearing this dress in the catalogue, I may be very tempted to consider it. I’m not sure whether it would be too short for me though, as it’s described as a tunic rather than a dress.


  1. I have last seasons jacket which is slightly different as it has an assymetric zip and I can confirm that it is awesome. I can't wait for the cool enough to wear it here!

  2. That leather jacket is to die for. Perhaps it will go on deep discount at the end of the season. As for the upcoming Fall/Winter season, what do you think of OTK boots? Are they a trend that will continue this year? Have you seen any in adverts or in shops yet? Thanks.
