denim

No Limit

The minute I saw the whole denim meets fishnet situation...I had to have it. I love the way they crash together but of course my search for tall fishnets wasn't very fruitful. I mean, it's hard enough to find the tall denim part, let alone fishnets that are long enough for these long legs hunni! Guess who came to my rescue?,,,

ASOS baby! I can't say enough about their tall line. I squeal every time I visit the page because there is always something new that is just what this tall girl ordered. My version of hitting the lotto would be one of everything in ASOS tall for life. Publishers Clearing House taint got nothing on that. Ok, ok. I would take the money too but I know you feel me.

Their fishnet leggings are just the right length and fit underneath denim beautifully. These beautiful jeans are from ASOS too. As you can see, they are long and have crazy good details like the hi-low hem. I wear these with everything. 

Oh...hey hair. How you doin?

And let us not forget to talk about this cropped jacket from Long Tall Sally. It is sublime. It's cropped in the right spot, the arms are long enough and it's super lightweight. This amazing little denim jacket is spot on for spring days and summer nights. It's part of the new CURATD X LTS line, which is equally as beautiful as this jacket.  

I'm super happy that I found both the fishnet and cropped look in tall but don't you ever think that a style isn't for you because you can't find it. If it isn't out there...get to designing! If you can't sew, find someone who can and create your vision together.

Do not...I repeat...do not, let the limitations of the industry stop you from living your style life. Style is an expression of your unique creation...dress accordingly!

You know as well as I do that jumpsuits come few and far between for us however Alloy Apparel has some amazing tall jumpsuits in inseams up to 37".

Take the Jenni Denim Jumpsuit. As you can see it's super long and doesn't give the dreaded camel toe. You can also stand as tall as you want to be because the body of the jumpsuit isn't too short (we can't have bad posture for anybody's ill cut jumpsuit).

I love a good Tall jumpsuit because they are a great, easy way to instantly look polished, are super comfortable and show off our tall, beautiful frames.

I chose to wear the Jenni in a little more of a "skinny jean" type of way but in general I usually order one size up in all Alloy tall Jumpsuits so keep that in mind when ordering.

Happy jumpsuit day! Well, I don't know if it really is but any day that we can find a jumpsuit is a happy one:)

Jeaneology

Everybody has a favorite pair of jeans.  Mine have holes all over them from wear and tear but I just can't let them go.  What if I can't find them again?  What if I find a replacement pair and they just aren’t the same? Major jean anxiety. 

BUT for spring/summer there are so many amazing styles that I have to delve into my pockets and purchase a pair (maybe 3).

Skinnies seem to always be on tap but the current denim trifecta is; flare, cropped and white.

The flare is back and in full effect. They are very slimming and look good in any wash.

Cropped are coming in strong this season.  Perfect for the hot weather and give any outfit an extra dimension.  The most popular are in the light wash however like the flare they look good in any shade.

Last but certainly not least, white.  From trouser to boyfriend (and everything in between), white denim is HOT.  A lot of people think that white makes them look bigger but it’s the cut, not the color, that is the culprit.  As with any jean, try them on.  You will find the right fit for you.

Find your style below.  If you don’t like them, don’t fret, check out the TallSWAG jeans page

Tried on jeans and just can’t seem to find what you are looking for?  Make your own!  There are many places that custom make jeans.  My personal fav is Indi (Indicustom.com).  They have every length, size, cut and color for a great price.

Happy shopping!
