Can a not-so-skinny tall girl wear skinny jeans and boots?

Q. I am almost 6′ tall with an athletic/hourglass figure. I can range in size from an 8-14 depending on the season. At an 8, I’m about as lean as I can get and at 14 I’m enjoying extra goodies and drinks, but still not “overweight” by any means. I know it’s not a good habit, especially for my closet.

I am a 12-14 right now. I have a pair of dark skinny jeans that fit really well and an awesome pair of on-trend knee high, flat brown boots. Are these ok for me? I feel like I should wear something to cover my larger parts (hips/outer thigh), but am having a hard time finding the right look. I’ve searched for long tunics and sweaters, but am just not sure what to wear with my skinnys/boots…or if I should skip them until I am smaller again?

A. Yes, yes, yes! You are tall, found a pair of dark skinny jeans that look great on you and have amazing knee high flat boots – what more can a girl ask for? Whether you are a size 6 or a size 16, your tall frame is made for this look! Your instincts are correct to look for sweaters, blazers and tunics to help conceal your bulges and give you a lean silhouette. Here are some options for you:
