Buying Pants: What You Need to Know
“With extremely high heels being so popular, tall women are in luck, because pants are especially long this season,” says Gregg Andrews, a fashion director at Nordstrom. Higher-end pants are generally longer in length because the manufacturers don’t skimp on fabric, and chances are they’ll have an all-around better fit, too. So for long-legged ladies, Andrews advocates springing for $100-plus pants over a $50 pair for an immediate difference. Another option is to head to the websites of J.Crew, Banana Republic, or Ann Taylor, which all offer lengths online that aren’t always stocked in stores, says Berlin.
