Hey, Caroline! I know all too well the challenges of finding a perfect party frock when you're six-foot-plus. The gowns I've tracked down are all either available in tall size options, or come with tall-friendly style features such as dropped waists, a shift fit or a lower hem. And of course, they've all got plenty of color or sparkle.
1. Lipsy Sequin Disc Dress ($119)
2. Tall Sequin Bodycon Dress ($116)
3. Cross-Over Shutter Dress ($155)
4. Motel Missy Metallic Bustier Dress in Black and Copper ($120)
5. Adrianna Papell Sequined Mesh Blouson Dress ($198)
