Week Of Denim Problem Solving: Too Short Jeans

October 22, 2008 by Bryn

My legs are long. I know, many women would not consider this a problem, but it most certainly becomes one when trying to buy jeans. Many pairs I try on seem fantastic until I look below the knee and can see my ankles. This would be fine for ballet flats, but I tend to gravitate towards heels and like my pants to cover the shoe. Which means even 34" lengths don't necessarily do the trick. So the perfect jean for me are ones that go even longer. And I found them in the two brands below:

Hudson Gemini Jeans ($176) come in a 34.5" length for those who want that extra half-inch of length. And the wide waistband helps battle the dreaded muffin top. For an even longer jean, I highly recommend the Kelly Bootcut from Citizens of Humanity ($110.60). This pair lands right at the heel's end of my super-high boots, creating a lean, tall silhouette.

And if you're a shoe switcher for the walk to and from work, you'll need Zakkerz to keep those new long jeans from tripping you up. And they now come in navy to blend with denim. Genius.
