As much as we love The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, we know that the perfect jeans are not a one-size-fits-all situation. Whether you’re curvy, petite, plus-size, tall, or a combination of fits, finding the perfect jeans takes time, patience, and effort. Even though online shopping has made it simple to send several styles to your doorstep at once, they can easily disappoint if you don’t know exactly what you want—or what fits you best.
In addition to searching for qualities that are important like style, wash, fit, and price, it’s also important to be aware of something that isn’t always apparent in online photos: length.
Both petite and tall frames require different inseams, and while tailoring is always an option, what’s better than finding a practically perfect fit straight off of the rack? We already polled our short-statured colleagues to unearth the best denim styles for petite women, so it was only fair that we provide the same assessment for the more statuesque ladies among us. And you bet they delivered the deets.
Ahead are 17 of the best jeans for tall women, according to Who What Wear staffers 5’7″ and up. Scroll through for their selects and honest recommendations you can shop with maximum confidence and end up with minimal returns.
