The Best Denim for Tall and Short Women

Kiss your scissors goodbye—these jeans are already the perfect length.

Denim shopping is easy if you’re between 5'4" and 5'7", but for the vertically challenged (and gifted) among us, buying jeans reminds us of the privileges we fail to share with the 28-inch-inseam club. If you are always (or never) asked to reach that inconveniently placed object on the highest shelf, we get you. As summer comes to a close, we want you to slip your stems into some denim that actually fits. We found floor-gracing flares for our six-foot friends, crops that remain crops on people five feet and under, and universally flattering styles that come in all lengths and sizes.


Tall

1 / 5
BEST DISTRESSED:

R13 Colleen Jeans

These light-wash, high-rise jeans boast a nearly 34-inch inseam, which means they’ll be below the ankle on even our leggiest friends. With a slight boot cut and a little distressing, these jeans will make all your 1970s Western dreams come true.


Petite

1 / 5
BEST DISTRESSED:

3x1 Shelter Austin Cropped Jean

Up your cool factor with some shredded-hem denim. The uneven cuffs on these 3x1 jeans will rest well above your ankles, even if you’re petite. We can’t guarantee that your grandmother will approve.
