Jeans are an essential item every girl needs in her closet!

Searching for jeans to fit your tall figure is hard. Once you find them long enough, you still need the right fit for your body type! But you can find some great quality, well fitting jeans for tall women.

However, since being tall doesn’t exactly define your body shape, I want to go into detail about the most common shapes and what jeans work best for each of them. Your body type will have a lot to do with what defines a good fitting pair of pants.

I’ve made up a list of jeans that are great for tall girls, and broken it up by body type.

Tall/Slender

You have an overall lean, slender figure. You have natural, subtle curves.

What to try: Royal Blue Dark Wash Skinny Jean or Vigold Premium Rinse Stretch Bootcut Jean You can choose between 35” and 37” inseams!vigoldpremiumjeanas

Skinny jeans look amazing on long, slender legs. If you want to play up one of your best assets, I’d suggest owning a pair of skinny jeans. Slim boot or regular boot cut jeans are a great choice too as they’re universally flattering. Not all girls like or can pull off skinny jeans, so when in doubt I’d try bootcut!

 

Tall/Hourglass

Hourglass figures have about equal bust and hip measurements with a distinct, smaller waist.

What to try: London Bootcut Jeans from Long Tall Sally.london-bootcut-jeans

Boot cut jeans with a higher waist work really well for this body type. Look for back pockets with little or no detailing.

The London Bootcut Jeans are basic, classic jeans with little embellishment. They’re simple and appropriate yet stylish, and these are the perfect fit for an hourglass figure. While they are a higher rise, (which can tend to create the “mom jean” look) they constructed well to help eliminate that. They’re also great because you can choose between a 34”, 36” and 38” inseam, and either light or dark wash.

 

 

Tall/Pearpipers-closet-bootcut-jean

You have a pear shape if your upper body is smaller in comparison to your bottom half, generally smaller stomach with thicker hips and thighs.

What to try: Piper’s Closet Bootcut Jean from Alloy. The bootcut and dark wash will help balance you out.

The best types of pants would be either boot cut  or wide leg jeans with slightly stretchy material. Opt for dark washes as they’ll slim your thicker hips and thighs.

Tall/Apple

Most of your weight lies within your mid-section, with narrower hips and smaller legs.

What to try: These  Gap 1969 Sexy Boot Jeans – medium washgap-sexyboot

The most flattering jeans for this body type would be boot cut jeans, or wide leg trousers to balance out your top and bottom. You can still wear skinny jeans since your legs are small, however be careful and pair them with looser fitting tops or tunics, you don’t want to draw too much attention to your middle.

 

Tall/Fuller Figured

This shape is different than the curvy/hourglass figure in that you tend to put on weight everywhere–your legs, butt, hips, stomach and top half are all bigger.

What to try: These Isabella bootcut jeans in dark wash from Torrid. The fit is amazing and they are so flattering for the fuller figured ladies!torrid-isabella-bootcut

Avoid jeans that have super light fading on the thighs as they’ll only make your thighs look bigger. Also, jeans with lots of embellishments on the back pockets won’t do you any favors unless you really want to bring attention to your butt. Look for medium to larger pockets; no or simple detailing is best.

Try dark wash jeans in boot cut, straight or flare style.

 

Tall/Rectangle

Rectangle shape meaning little to no curves. Your breasts, waist and thighs are pretty much all equal or similar measurements.

What to try: Piper’s Closet Double-Button Skinny Jean from Alloy are tight and form fitting, and will give your body that curvy look.pipers-closet-skinny

With this body type, you can probably get away with wearing any kind of jean style. However, wearing skinny, straight or slim boot cut jeans will help to hug your body and give you the illusion of curves.

  1. Thank you, thank you for making this site. I am 6ft tall and slim and it is so hard to find anything that fits me. I did not know that I could buy jeans for less tha $80 and am eager to order and try some new styles. I will definitely check out ideas for how to dress this long legged, long armed, slender built body.

    • Yeah Lisa you can definitely find lots of long length jeans for under $80! The ones from Alloy are good for slim figures and another place you could check I didn’t mention here is American Eagle – they carry a ton of jeans in 34” and 36” inseams and you can find them anywhere from $20-$40!

      • I tried American Eagle and their longs are not long enough. I love the fact that Alloy makes a 37 inseam. I just hope to order and not have to return clothes because that ends up being so expensive. Do you know if their jeans are true to size?

        • Yeah the AE regular longs are sometimes a bit too short for me, too. Have you try their extra long inseams that they only carry online? Those are 36” and pretty long. But yeah, Alloy does make some pretty long jeans – I just saw they had 39 inch inseams too in a few of their pants! I know it sucks having to return clothes you bought online!! Alloy’s jeans are pretty true to size in my experience, but it might depend on the style of jeans as they’re all different – there are a lot of customer reviews on their website though so I’d read those first to try and gauge what size to buy.

  2. my favorite brand is DSTLD Jeans. i am 5’9” and they have longer inseams up to 32”

    i love their cigarette jeans… they look like bootcuts and i love to cuff them for a more stylish look. http://dstldjeans.com

  3. I don’t understand why you have not posted Simpy Tall.com.One of the best with inseams reaching up to 38 inches.They have the best customer service person I have ever dealt with. Her neme is Nicole and she is fabulous .check them out, you won’t be sorry…….”
