It’s arrived! The dreaded, hectic, over-hyped, shouty marketing all up in our grill Black Friday/Cyber Weekend/Thanksgiving/Early Christmas Sales thing. However, we would be lying if we said we weren’t as excited by a great deal as the next fashion-hungry woman. And while fast, cheap fashion isn’t really our thing, both from a cost-per-wear and a sustainability perspective, we certainly wouldn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to invest in classic pieces that will stand the test of time at a discounted rate. So we’ve been trawling the web for our favourite tall-friendly bargains, and shared our top picks of the sales below. All suitable for us tall ones.
A quality pair of ankle boots in a neutral colour are going to last forever. Hard-wearing, versatile and edgy, they add instant street style to any look. Take the classic route and wear over skinny jeans or else pair with a mini skirt and a knit. Try a classic biker pair from L.K.Bennett, who are offering 25% OFF everything using code BLACK25 (SHOP NOW). Or, if you prefer a wedge, these lovely Mondrian boots from DuoBoots (previously Ted & Muffy) will be perfect, and in the Cyber Sale at £90. SHOP NOW.
CLASSIC SILK SHIRT
Every compact, quality wardrobe should have a classic shirt, and they don’t come better than Equipment’s signature silk numbers. Beautifully made, heavenly to the touch and perfect for day-to-night wear. Shopbop has a good collection at up to 30% off using MORE17, including this stunning signature silk starry number.

Wonderfully warm, soft and of course natural, high quality cashmere is a true investment piece. But nothing will ruin your cashmere as quickly as moths so be sure to take preventative measures! Stock is extremely low, so SHOP NOW with 20% OFF & FREE DELIVERY in our very own HøF Shop using code BF20HOF. Off ends Monday.
Fine, they may not be exactly the denim of the season, but skinny jeans are the easiest to style. And let’s be honest, some days (perhaps even most days?!) most of us are struggling just to keep afloat let alone look AW17/18 stylish while we do it. My favourite are the Frame Forever Karlie jeans, which are in the Shopbop Black Friday sale using code MORE17 at checkout. They’re flipping great (and flipping long). Shortly followed by Donna Ida Ivy jeans, and the super-comfy and insanely cheap Dr Denim Lexi jeans, which have been the best cost-per-wear purchase of my life! They don’t look super-long but they’re so stretchy and flattering – on point.
Fine this may not be essential… BUT it is timeless. As mentioned in our latest blog, the classic trench has heritage and innate style and will never go out of fashion. It might be the only thing you buy this year, but it will be the best. Of course, our pick is the Escada Gabardine Classic Trench. But it’s not in the sale sadly. So check out this Tall trench from ASOS, and with 20% off using WIN20, you’re winning in both the money and the sartorial stakes.
I have the Boden 7/8 Trousers in a Long in bright pink, which are perfect for tonal dressing (as seen on Instagram…). However, they are available in black or navy as well for more classic dressing. The long size is an incredibly flattering length and they are the most comfortable trousers I own. Get an amazing 30% OFF in the Black Friday weekend sale using code N6D5. SHOP NOW.
SMART TRAINERS – 20% + FREE DELIVERY using BF20HOF
Agreed, there will be many occasions when trainers in any form are not appropriate. But what if you could own a pair of trainers so smart that, in fact, people don’t really view them as trainers at all. Just super cool footwear? You get to be comfortable and other people get to be envious. Ideal. We still have a few pairs of trainers left in the HøF Shop and are doing 20% OFF + FREE DELIVERY with code BF20HOF. Offer ends Monday.
CLASSIC MINI SKIRT
Chuck on a classic mini skirt with a chunky knit and ankle boots for instant off-duty model vibes. I’m in love with these A-line mini’s (generous length minis I should say) from M&S, which are available in an array of colours, although my favourite by a country mile is the mustard. Gorgeous. Although sadly M&S have decided to opt out of Black Friday Sales. So if you want something cheaper, check out this Buttoned Midi Skirt from Mango, the perfect mini for long legs, and they’ve wiped 30% off everything using code BLACK17. Which makes this skirt almost free.
