Tall women don’t need to fear leggings and skinny jeans. These styles can actually add visual length to your legs and hug your curves in a flattering way. Like any other pair of pants, it can be difficult for tall women to find leggings and skinny jeans that are long enough. Shop at stores that cater to tall women and choose conservative colors and styles that you can wear with a variety of tops.
1. Casual Skinny Jeans
Buy a pair of dark-rinse skinny jeans that have a little extra fabric in the legs. You’ll look long, lean and effortlessly casual when you pair them with wedge sandals and a cute top. Not only will you look fabulous, you’ll feel comfortable, too.
2. Black Skinny Pants
A pair of black skinny pants should hang in every tall woman’s closet. You can wear them to work with a blazer, or out on a date, topped with a corset top. You’ll look both sexy and classy for any occasion.
3. Pair Leggings with Ankle Boots
Admittedly, pairing leggings with ankle boots can be a very hard look for tall women to pull off. Not only do tall women have a hard time finding pants long enough, but sometimes ankle boots don’t seem tall enough, either. But, when you can find a pair of leggings that reaches all the way to your heels (stirrup pants may be your best option), same-colored ankle boots can finish off your outfit in ways that other shoes can’t.
4. Leggings and Tunic Tops
If you’re wary about entering the world of leggings, top your first pair with a flowing tunic top. You won’t have to worry about your hips, butt or upper thighs showing, and you can really show your great expanse of leg. If you’re self-conscious about your lower half, choose a dark pair of leggings and a light-colored top to draw the eye upward.
