Hello, tall friends! We’ve moved our tall shopping blog to a new host and are back, excited to scour the web for all things tall.
One of my very favorite places to buy tall women’s jeans is Buckle. Check out their Fit No. 53 Straight Stretch Jean, in inseams up to 36″.
Think denim can’t be dressy? Think again. Okay, you maybe wouldn’t wear this to a cocktail party, but I think the nice detailing around the hem and waist dresses up this sturdy cotton standby. The slight flare to the skirt makes this flattering on anyone!

Banana Republic has got some cute spring tops instock in their tall sizes, but we’re still enduring snow drifts in my neck of the woods. So I’m all about the long sleeved warmth of this sweet top with a button detail sweetheart neck. I can still keep my arms toasty while remembering I do have some skin underneath all of these layers. Now pass me my mittens, will you?

Search by Inseam is so utterly brilliant, I wish I’d thought of it. Choose which style of pant you’re looking for, then select the inseam length. From Petite 21″ inseams, all the way up to 38″ inseams, there is something for everyone. They even have listings for maternity wear. You can search by brand and narrow your results according to price.
You’re addicted to all of those style shows on television like me, aren’t you? You know what Tim Gunn always says, “NO SIDE POCKETS!” Okay, he doesn’t shout it, maybe. But really who uses those? I never do. Look for pants (dress pants especially) without any side pockets as they’ll add extra bulk in an area where you really don’t need it.
This dressy pant from New York & Company features a slimming flat front, wide waist band, and no side/hip pockets. Perfecto. Inseam is 34.5″.

No doubt about it, a skirt made for a person of average height often looks like a street walker’s skirt on a tall person! I used to get so frustrated as a teenager when my shorter little sister could wear a skirt without my father blinking his eye, but when I put on that same skirt, he wouldn’t let me out of the house.
Long legs are an asset, but maybe you don’t necessarily want to look like a street walker when you’re just running to the post office. This cute denim skirt is short, but long enough to keep a girl feeling like she can bend over without showing the world her undies. Cute pockets and button styling makes this a good basic for any one’s wardrobe.

Eddie Bauer is known for quality clothes that will last, and they have a nice selection of tall clothes. Their style is a bit more conservative, but you can often find cute things that don’t make you look frumpy.
I like this car coat available in size tall because it’s got a bit of a cinch at the waist so you don’t end up feeling like you’re a walking sofa. Plus, it’s a lighter weight “car coat” so you won’t sweat to death shopping for cans of tomatoes after driving to the grocery store in a snow storm.

Okay so we can find places for long pants and even some tops and sweaters, but what about those of us who like to sleep in some comfortable pajamas?
Long enough pajamas can be a bear to find. We can’t just waltz into Old Navy or the Gap and snatch up those cute print pajama pants without sacrificing ankle coverage. And let’s get real, when we want to lounge around in PJs, we probably haven’t shaved our legs, and having all that prickly nonsense stick out down below ruins the lazy vibe.
The US Tall Girls shop has a slew of cozy sleep wear and robes just for us. But hurry, a lot of it is on sale and the sizes are going fast!
