The Best Denim Brands for Long Legs

Shopping tends to be a unique experience for everyone, but that's especially the case when you're proudly rocking a pair of legs that are longer than average. The advantages are abundant: Shorts were basically made for you, and heels delightfully accentuate your height (let's not even get started on the gift of platforms). Where the challenge comes in, however, is scouring the depths of the internet or IRL shopping racks for the best pairs of tall jeans that actually fit.

As the industry continues to expand on all accounts, #TallGirlProblems have by no means evaporated into thin air. Still, suitable denim options await if you know how to scout them out. Inseam length, for instance, is among the most important factors to bear in mind. Just as it sounds, an "inseam" is the seam on the inside of a pair of pants or jeans. The main issue is that the standard denim inseam hovers at around 28" and our guess is you're in the market or a 32" or above.

Luckily, dedicated brands such as Nineth Closet and American Tall have you covered, but don't overlook fan-favorites such as FRAME and Madewell, either, as they sell a variety of lengths, too.

In case you're on a time crunch, we've done the hard part for you, shopping out the best denim for long legs on the market right now — including those difficult-to-find statement pieces. Keep scrolling for what just may be your go-to item of the season.
