For Jeans That Cover Your Ankles
Acne: The Swedish brand's straight-leg inseams go up to 34 inches, which is two inches longer than most non-flared jeans. Thanks, tall Scandinavians!
Gap: Like its sister brand Old Navy, Gap has a designated tall section, where most jeans have 35-inch inseams.
Frame: Acne and Gap are great and all, but Frame's collaboration with 6'1" model Karlie Kloss is the holy grail of tall-girl jeans. These guys have a 36.5-inch inseam. If you buy them, hold onto them tightly and never let them go.
For Work Clothes That Don't Look Like They Shrunk in the Dryer
J.Crew: Work clothes are constricting things, and most blazers and blouses aren't cut to accommodate tall-girl torsos. Luckily, J.Crew gets it—the brand offers plenty of lengthened versions of its core preppy basics for women 5'9" and up.
Marge: Started by designer Kaersten Cooper, who's 6'1", Marge (named after Cooper's 4'11" grandmother, Marjorie) is a luxury line that caters to women on the other side of 5'8". It's pricey, yes, but that's because all the fabrics are sourced in Italy, while the clothes are manufactured in San Francisco.
Banana Republic: If you've ever spied a dress and thought "I could wear that to work!" only to try it on and go, "if I worked in a club," Banana Republic feels you. The brand's tall section is full of basic shifts and sheaths whose hemlines can stand up to aggressive office air-conditioning.
For Crop Tops That Won't Be Mistaken for Sports Bras
Topshop: Here's the thing about Topshop's tall line: it claims to be for women 5'9" and up, but hemlines in that store run short. So if you're, say, 5'7", and you wish that quilted miniskirt from Topshop's main line was just an inch or two longer, see if they have your size in Topshop Tall. We won't tell anyone.
ASOS: Thank you, ASOS, for consistently translating trendy cuts (cropped turtlenecks, off-the-shoulder rompers) into things that don't look like lingerie on your average tall person.
For Shoes That Won't Pinch Your Feet
Nordstrom: Sure, girls with size-10-and-up feet clean house at shoe sales, but it can be hard to find basic black heels or cool velvet booties in extended sizes when you really need them. Nordstrom has pretty much cornered the market on specialized footwear, so it's no surprise that their women's shoe offerings go up to a size 15.
Zappos: Not to be outdone, Zappos carries women's shoes up to a size 16.5, and they offer narrow and wide styles.
For Workout Leggings That *Aren't* Capris
Old Navy Active: We have to hand it to Old Navy—the brand's website has a pretty extensive selection of gym gear across the size spectrum, from petite to tall. The retailer outfits its 5'10"-and-up options with adjusted waists, lower knee positions, longer inseams, and an extra half-inch across the shoulders to maximize comfort.
Long Tall Sally: Yes, we know, the name. But the online shop has some genuinely cute yoga pants and compression tights (plus sports bras and sweat-wicking tanks to match) for extra-leggy shoppers.
For Tights That Won't Sag
DKNY: Is there anything worse than too-short tights that sag like harem pants? DKNY's hosiery line is really, really good to begin with, so we're super-excited that the brand offers tall versions of its most popular tights.
