The Most Flattering Jeans For a Tall Figure
"Regular jeans are high-waters on me, but jeans with long inseams can be too long. And because the waist often doesn't fit if the thighs do, I skip high rises."—Sara Morrow
Sara's Jean Pick: Straight
Buy Them: Straight jeans, sizes 4–18 with inseam of 34", 36" or 38", $79; longtallsally.com.
Why They Work: The simple vertical lines of a straight-leg style are flattering, whether your legs are toothpick-skinny or more substantial. The stretch and medium rise mean this pair fits waist and thighs. A straight style can hit slightly higher or lower on the ankle and still look OK.
• Play off the narrowness of the jeans by layering on a faux-fur vest. If you're tall, you definitely can pull it off.
