5 Pairs of Jeans That Will Actually Cover Your Ankles If You’re Tall
Tall women are often lucky when it comes to fashion. We don’t have to get things hemmed for length, we don’t feel pressured to wear heels and we don’t have to make our legs look longer. One problem we do have is finding jeans that aren’t comically short. That’s why we polled our vertically blessed friends and did some digging around the web to find the following pairs—which were literally made for those of us who are always stuck in the back of group photos.
Frame Forever Karlie Skinny Jeans
The “Karlie” in the name of these jeans refers to six-foot-two supermodel Karlie Kloss, who is almost certainly no stranger to ill-fitting jeans. That’s why she teamed up with FRAME to create this pair, which boasts a more than generous 36-inch inseam.
American Eagle Skinny Kick Jeans
American Eagle jeans are great for a few reasons: They come in sizes 00 to 20, they offer long (34-inch inseams) and extra-long (36-inch inseams) lengths and they’re incredibly affordable. Talk about a triple threat.
Topshop Tall Indigo Flared Jamie Jeans
It’s pretty easy to make too-short skinny jeans look OK, but flares are a bit more problematic. Luckily, Topshop’s got your back, with a pretty great selection of longer jeans made specifically for women taller than five foot nine.
Levi’s 714 Straight Jeans
Leading the straight-leg category are Levi’s 714s, which come in 30-, 32- and 34-inch inseam options. Perfect for ladies who are tall and ladies who are tall-tall.
Torrid Premium Stretch Skinny Ankle Jean
Like the Levi’s, this cool distressed pair comes in three inseams: regular (30 inches), tall (32 inches) and extra tall (34 inches).
