Pants are foundational to many different outfits. Whether you work from home and gravitate toward joggers and leggings or prefer a more structured pair of dress pants or trousers, there are lots of great options to choose from. However, it’s not always easy to find pairs that work for your frame if you're a taller woman.
The best pants for tall women don’t just fit well – they should seamlessly fit into your wardrobe and serve as a building block for many different outfits. They should also make you look and feel amazing.
To help you reach tall pants nirvana, we’ve rounded up some of the best pairs available in our current catalog. These dress pants, leggings, and joggers are popular and continue to be in demand, so don’t wait until it’s too late to place your order.
Our Favorite Tall Leggings
Every woman should have at least one pair of fabulous leggings in her closet. However, finding the right pair can be tricky when you're taller. Many larger retailers stock a limited number of inseam sizes, leaving few options for taller women.
Even though leggings are made with stretchy, forgiving fabric, pairs that are too small in the leg or rise will wrinkle or overstretch in a way that’s not only uncomfortable but contributes to the leggings ripping or stretching out of shape more easily.
Here are some of our favorite tall leggings we offer at American Tall.
Tall Cotton Leggings
You can never go wrong with a classic pair of high-rise black leggings. These pants look amazing paired with dresses, a t-shirt, or a hoodie. The waist-hugging rise clings to your midsection, creating a smooth line that makes tops hang beautifully. In addition to black, these leggings are available in 11 other colors ranging from Smoked Mauve to Juniper Green.
Performance Pocket Tall Women’s Leggings
Looking for a pair of tall leggings that can keep up with you on the go? Our performance pocket leggings are made from a stretchy and comfortable polyester/spandex blend and are designed with a zippered pocket on the back of the waistband for maximum convenience. The pocket can fit your keys, headphones, or a few cards to keep all your essentials close throughout the day.
Joggers for Tall Women
Another popular category of pants we love for the cooler season is joggers. These offer a similar flexibility to leggings but are cut in a more forgiving way. The right pair of joggers can be styled into a daytime or evening outfit, or you can throw on your coziest pair and lounge on the couch all day. The choice is yours!
Wearever French Terry Joggers
Not all joggers are created equal. With our Wearever French Terry joggers, we think we’ve perfected the form. Each pair is made with a wide, thick waistband that curves to hug your natural waist and a decorative knee panel design to add interest. These joggers are made from plush French Terry, which will keep you warm on the coolest days. We also have a lighter weight pair that works great for warmer weather!
AT Balance Pocket Joggers
We think our AT Balance Pocket joggers are a fantastic hybrid between the generous cut of joggers and the performance fabric of leggings. This style is designed with two large front pockets, as well as a hidden pocket on the inside of the back waistband for your smaller valuables. The fabric is made from flexible and moisture-wicking polyester/spandex, which will keep you comfortable even on the busiest days.
Event-Ready Tall Dress Pants for Women
Sometimes, you just have to throw on a pair of dress pants and get the job done. Finding office-appropriate pants as a taller lady can be challenging, which is why we’re so passionate about making pants that look great on women over 5’9”. Plus, our favorites don’t require time-consuming dry cleaning but can be thrown in the laundry on the gentle cycle.
Slim Straight Leg Dress Pants
These black slim straight pants are the perfect office-wear building block. They pair well with blouses and tops of any color or style and can be mixed and matched with blazers to create an even more professional look.
Pull-On Traveler Pants
These pull-on traveler pants are designed with the same slimming lines as a pair of dress pants but are made to offer more flexibility. The pull-on capability and soft 100% polyester fabric make these the perfect pair of pants for the workplace, a dinner date, or party.
