One Tall Order – Fabulous Fashion Finds for the 5’7″ & Over Gal

Sure, cropped pants and mini skirts are great, until that seems to be how you look in everything. Sound familiar? Today’s average jean inseam offerings usually end at 32″, which is perfectly fine for ladies up to 5’7″. But if you happen to be one of the almost 36% of US women over that mark, you’re most likely longing for a brand offering a longer inseam.

Well, we have good news! If you’re not familiar with Alloy Apparel, we’re about to introduce you to your new best friend. Founded back in 1996, this brand has really moved into the forefront of offering great fashion options for Tall ladies of all sizes. Having a few staffers here at SLH who fit this bill, we felt this was the perfect opportunity to look through all their cool clothing options and put together seven full looks from workout casual to holiday party pretty.

Alloy Apparel, Tall Essential Leggings $32.90

A good workout starts with great foundation pieces. First, the Essential Compression Leggings are made to give moderate support with a wider waistband and a 36″ inseam, from sizes S to XXL. With a fit this nice, you want to pair it with an equally comfortable bra, like the Adidas ‘Stronger For It’ racer bra series. Add a pair of strong cross training gym shoes, like the Puma Defy Mid and (speaking of Puma) finish strong post-workout with the rugby inspired, roomy and sporty track jacket from the Selena Gomez and Puma collab.

And since you’re most likely dodging between the elements, make sure to keep cozy with a puffy jacket like this one by Calvin Klein.
