You know me by now. I’m always on the hunt for something new, so I was delighted when the opportunity came to try out some products from NEXT, a company that I have been eying for a long time!
NEXT is an online retailer based out of Great Britain that sells clothing and shoes for men, women, and children, as well as home ware. When it comes to the women’s apparel selection, I didn’t initially realize how much they offer in tall sizes and now wish that I would’ve explored the website much sooner! Ladies, I have found tall paradise. You’re welcome, lol!
Ok, so lets get right down to it. I selected a number of items to try and share with my Tall Sisters.
Starting off with a cute work-appropriate look, by just adding a cardigan or a jacket, you’ll be the most fashionable lady in the office. This Brown Leather Look Pencil Skirt comes in UK sizes 6 – 22 and US sizes 2 – 18. From waistband to hem, the skirt is about 25.5″/64.5cm. For me that meant that it hit right above the knee area.
I added the Frill Detail Top to add a pop of color as I think brown and mustard are a delicious combination, if I do say do myself! I’m wearing both pieces in my go-to size US 16.
Jackets. We all need jackets. Fall is here, so I was most definitely looking for a new staple jacket for this year.
Cheers of joy and delight erupted when I saw they carried a faux leather biker jacket in my tall and plus size, because I put on a few pounds these past months and my old biker jacket and I are no longer buddies. Busting at the seams is not a good look. Thankfully, I have found my new edgy love. This Black PU Biker Jacket comes in UK sizes 8 – 20 and US sizes 4 – 16.
Now, the best thing here is that this jacket is actually machine washable. Say what? YES! Machine washable. The shell is 100% viscose with PU coating, the lining is 100% polyester. So apparently that translates into machine washable. Hooray for clean jackets! I am wearing the biker jacket in a US size 16 Tall.
I’m not done! I had to try a dress of some sort and this Khaki Pinafore 2 In 1 Dress was calling my name. This dress also comes in a wide range of tall sizes, UK 8 – 20 and US 4 – 16. I am wearing the Tall 16 again.
Full disclosure with this dress, it was a hit with my boyfriend, because it shows off my curves. I received several compliments on it while wearing it out. I do not however think it can be considered “Tall,” as it was a little shorter than I would like. So no dropping stuff on the floor in this dress, because you cannot, I repeat, you cannot bend down.
It is a 2 in 1 dress, so you will receive a white blouse with it that you can wear or swap for another top. I added this STUNNING Khaki Suede Clutch bag, 100% leather this is a high quality bag for a very fair price. It elevates this look and many others I have used it with since then. Between the ruffled sleeves on the blousem the pockets in the dress, and a new purse I LOVE I am a VERY happy tall girl:)
I look forward to sharing more finds from Next.co.uk with you lovely ladies! Let me know if there are specific pieces from Next you are wondering about and would like me to showcase next.
