Like curvy gals, tall ladies should plump for a print that’s larger. Long, slim frames will also have no problem handling horizontal prints, which tend to widen the figure. If you’re worried about looking wallpaper-ish, soften the jungle effect by pairing one animal-print piece—say a skirt that shows off your long legs, or a silky cami—with a solid top or jeans. Michelle Obama looks fab in an animal print top and dotted skirt. Another great pick for tall gals? A pair of leopard-print flats—so chic with skinny jeans and a solid tee.
