#TallPeopleProblems: I’m tired of my ankles being cold

Pixie cut pants are really cute until it’s the wind is snapping at your ankles.

“Pixie Cut work pants” from H&M that had my ankles freezing 😭

For years I could never find jeans long enough for me so I made high-water jeans a part of my style 😂

I’m 5’10” with a 35” inseam.

My height is in both my legs and my torso.

To be honest it’s annoying when your ankles are cold and your booties don’t quite come up far enough to make up for where your jeans don’t reach. 

These are Forever 21 JEANS not capris y’all 😢😕 you see where the seam ends ?

I was excited to find out that American Eagle makes long jeans but was mortified when I tried them on and the “long jeans” weren’t long enough. An associate told me they carry extra long but they’re only available

online 🙃

I NEED TO TRY THE PANTS ON TO SEE IF THEY’RE ACTUALLY REALLY LONG !

(Like for me Old Navy and Gap Jeans j u s t make the length but I don’t really care for the fit.) 

Department stores, boutiques and a lot of other retail stores have plus and petite sections but they just disregard us tall folk and force us to shop on line and hope and pray that the jeans or pants are long enough.

Fashion Nova is like one of my favorite online fashion stores, but one of my biggest struggles is trying to figure out how the pants and dresses will fit on me. The models are like 5’4” with crazy curves so I find myself scrolling through the reviews praying that I see a tall girl’s review 😩

Have you ever experienced:

Trying on coat and when you raise your arms over your head it becomes a 3 quarter sleeve because the arms of the coat aren’t long enough ? 😭

Or for my ladies...

Finding pants that work only to realize they’re not long enough for you to wear your heels with ?

Or buying what is supposed to be a midi dress, but when you get the dress or try it on it looks like a t-shirt…

Or ordering maxi dress online that stops above your ankles ?

Or what about the rompers and jumpsuits with not enough torso space so you have that awkward and uncomfortable wedgie in the front ?

If you’ve ever experienced any of these issues and aren’t sure where to shop, let me help you out !

Here is my list of places to shop and brands that cater to us tall people !

I have bought from these brands and they actually fit well*

  1. Missguided Tall (an entire category with everything)

  2. ASOS Tall

  3. American Eagle (Great for jeans)

  4. Fashion Nova (the jeans are actually long, the pants no)

  5. Vero Moda (from ASOS, carries tall jeans)

  6. PrettyLittleThing Tall

  7. J-Brand Jeans (pricey but I found a pair thrifting & I fell in love)

*It helps to measure your inseam (length from crotch to the bottom of your leg) and add 1-2 inches to have the option to cuff your jeans)*
