Being blessed with lengthy gams can occasionally come with a few style setbacks. Jeans that fit perfectly in the hips and thighs fall short (literally!) in every other area. You may find a figure-flattering dress for work, but on your frame, it becomes a barely there micro-mini. But seriously, the days of settling for a less than ideal fit are over for you tall, model-esque women. From denim to button downs to even jumpsuits, we found pieces that cater to the long and tall. Besides being fly and affordable, you’ll slip into these and feel like they were tailor-made to your proportions.
