Why: Being almost six feet tall means that I always feel like an outcast when it came to the latest fashions. Pants are too short, tops always look like I ran them through the the dryer on the “nuclear radiation” setting, and to be honest, most “tall” fashions have a dowdy, utilitarian look to them. Slowly, designers are realizing that there are a lot of us tall gals out there and we want to look good. Getting a pair of Calvins in the latest style is no problem but for some reason designers always forgot that tall means tall all over — not just legs. Crop tops are fun on the weekend but not a good idea on the job.
Eddie Bauer has seen the light and offers all its styles in tall. That’s right, no more leafing through catalogs for the three pairs of pants and one jacket that comes in tall — everything here is available! Looking for capris? No worries, check out their Mercer fit ripstop capris ($54.50). Now, how about a tank or tee to pair with it? Try the long ribbed solid-colored tank ($19.50) or maybe the sleeveless embroidered slub slipneck tee ($39.50). No more being on the outside, time to join the party!
