Tall women rejoice! Brands like Asos, Ann Taylor and Topshop offer a great selection of clothing for women over five-foot-eight.
Shopping can be difficult when you’re above average height. Sure, there are many advantages to being tall (long legs, reaching the top shelf, standing out in a crowd, never being confused for a child), but finding clothes that fit can be frustrating. Us tall gals are often left with hemlines that are a bit too high, sleeves that don’t quite hit our wrists, and t-shirts that show more torso than we’d like. But, there are quite a few brands that offer clothing for tall women. Some are specialty stores, like Long Tall Sally, that cater specifically to women over five-foot-eight, but many are brands that offer their own collections of clothing with longer inseams and proportions for tall women.
Here’s a list of the best fashion brands for tall women.
Topshop x The Bay
Topshop has a small collection of clothing for women over five-foot-nine. The collection includes shirts, jeans, dresses, and jackets and is available at The Bay in Canada. The styles are often the same as the brand’s core offering, just with updated proportions to fit taller women. We love the colour of this raincoat and it has extra long sleeves to keep your wrists dry.
Hooded Rain Mac, $115, thebay.com.
Ann Taylor offers a wide variety of clothing for women over five-foot-eight. Most of these items are available as online exclusives, which makes shopping online a breeze for tall women. We love the selection of dresses and skirts including this striped skirt. It has an extra inch-and-a-half of material to accommodate longer legs and torso.

GAP is a great place to get denim. Its 1969 Denim Shop has a selection of jeans with 36-inch inseams—perfect for women with long legs. The brand also offers an assortment of pants, dresses, and shirts, though you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic skinny jeans. These mid-rise skinny jeans will become a instant personal favourite.

Long Tall Sally
From work-wear to active-wear, Long Tall Sally is the ultimate fashion brand for tall women. The British company is dedicated to offering fashionable items to tall women from five-foot-eight and up. We love the midi length of this floral sundress and the hemline will comfortably reach your knees.
Floral Cotton Sundress, $99, longtallsally.com.
ASOS is a great resource for tall women. Not only does the website carry its own line of clothing, called ASOS Tall, but it also includes a dozen other brands with extended sizing including Misguided, and Y.A.S Tall.
This striped jumpsuit by ASOS was made for women with longer proportions, which means a perfect fit for your tall figure.

Like its sister brand, Ann Taylor, LOFT has its own collection specifically for tall women. Find more casual pieces from this brand, including drawstring pants and relaxed denim jeans. We picked these wide leg linen pants for their comfort and their thirty-three inch inseam.

From shirts and skirts to jeans and jackets, Old Navy has an array of clothing options for tall women, that are all very reasonably priced. Pick up a dress from the brand and have it hit just the right spot—not an inch or two north of where it should hit. This swing dress has a fun, summery print and adorable shoulder ties with tassels on the ends.
