Being blessed with supermodel-like legs is not always everything that it’s cracked up to be — just ask any objectively tall person whose dealt with the struggle of shopping out jeans or pants. Even as the denim industry has grown to be more size-inclusive, brands have still struggled to create tall jeans for women that fit just right. The ideal style is a bottom that covers the leg without being too baggy, accentuates the figure without feeling too tight on the hips, and sits just right on the waist without showing too much ankle at the hem. The task of shopping out these types of denim styles is, as you can imagine, much easier said than done.
Fortunately, I understand the struggle all too well — I myself am 5’10” after all and have dedicated a lot of time to jean shopping over the years (honestly more than I’d care to admit). As a result, I have a unique expertise for what to consider when shopping out the best jeans for tall women, and even rounded up a few of the best styles you can buy online, below.
While the standard inseam on jeans is somewhere between 30 to 32 inches, taller girls needs something closer to 34 inches. Luckily, so many popular brands and retailers are releasing more tall and petite options in regular collections. Ahead, shop my favorite picks from brands like Madewell, J.Crew, Amazon, and more.
