It’s Time to Shop for Shorts!

It’s rainy and 42 degrees here in Seattle right now, but it’s time to shop for shorts! 🙂 Early spring is the best time to shop for shorts because stores are stocking up for Spring Break and have a great selection. Some stores are even running sales on their shorts to get their inventory moving! I’m seeing lots of colors and trends, and wanted to share those with you. I’ll also tell you how to figure out which shorts inseam is best for you.

I love all the colors I’m seeing in shorts right now, and I wanted to see if I could make a rainbow of shorts for this post. It was tough to find purple, but red through blue was pretty easy. 😉

First up, we have a red bike short from Old Navy. Bike shorts are great for biking (duh), but they also work well for yoga, running, or wearing under a skirt. Bike shorts tend to have a longer inseam length, and this pair comes in 3 different lengths: 7.25″, 8″ and 9.25″. They are often made from compression material and are great at holding you in. Look for features such as tag-free and moisture-wicking.

Athletic shorts have also been a trend in recent years. Wear these for anything athletic, or simply to hang out in when the weather warms up. I wear shorts like this daily in the summer because they are so lightweight and comfortable. These bright orange shorts from Buckle are a bit longer in the back, which is super nice for extra coverage when you’re active.

For yellow , I found this cheery pair of Juicy Couture Yellow French Terry Sweat Shorts from Nordstrom. These shorts show off the high waist trend we’ve seen a lot in the last couple years. Sweat shorts are also making a comeback, with their soft lining and laid back vibe. With a 7″ inseam, these shorts fall in-between Bermuda knee-length shorts and short athletic shorts, which might feel too modest for some, but perfect for others who want a bit longer coverage.

Green is my favorite color, and I love the tie waist on these paperbag shorts from Buckle. To wear the paperbag shorts trend well, it helps to have a defined waist and be comfortable tucking your shirt in. Tucking your shirt in allows you to really show off the cute waist details. Many shorts in this trend feature very short inseam lengths, like this 2.25″ inseam below.

These teal shorts from Eddie Bauer are great for outdoor adventures or casual pursuits close to home. They offer sun protection and are made from stretchy nylon with a little bit of spandex. The regular inseam length is 7 inches; the petite inseam length is 6.5 inches; the tall inseam length is 7.5 inches, and the women’s plus inseam length is 7 inches. This is a good length for casual shorts and hiking shorts.

Jean shorts are always in style, and this year is no different. This medium indigo wash jean short from Silver Jeans has a shorter 4″ inseam that’s perfect for hanging out. It features a mid-rise which is good for either tucking your shirt in or leaving it out. Distressing is fairy heavy on these jean shorts, making them good for casual days.

Silver Jeans Suki Short 4" inseam

And finally, we make it to the end of the rainbow with purple shorts! 🙂 These high waisted purple shorts from Express have a short 3.5 inch inseam length and look best with a tucked-in top. Their shape and tailoring make them a dressier option, and they’d be great with heels or wedge sandals.

Express High Waisted Purple Shorts 3.5" inseam

Which colors and styles are your favorite shorts to wear? If you’re not sure about what inseam length would be best for you, follow the steps listed in how to measure your inseam length and just use shorts instead of jeans. The same rules apply. Now that you know early spring is the best time to shop for shorts, get shopping at SearchByInseam.com where you can find the exact inseam length you want!

Kid too tall for children’s jeans?

Is your kid too tall for children's jeans?
Is your kid too tall for children’s jeans?

Is your kid too tall for children’s jeans all of a sudden? It sneaks up on you for sure! We are just starting to hit that point with my 12-year-old son. For years, he always wore the same size clothing as his age. But at some point, he started moving through the sizes faster than that, and now he’s needing jeans and pants that are in the 14-16 size range. And I think another growth spurt is just around the corner! 😉

My husband and I are both tall, and he’s on the taller end of the growth chart, too, so it won’t be long before our kid is too tall for children’s jeans and pants. What then? I’m a planner and I like to shop sales and buy ahead whenever I can. So I started looking around online, and found that there were actually some retailers that went up to a kid size 20! Whew! We have a few more years (I hope!) until we need to start buying him adult jeans and pants.

Currently, we shop at a few online stores for children’s clothes. Hanna Andersson has been one of our favorites for hand-me-down quality, but they usually only go up to a size 12 for pants. Sometimes you can find 14-16, but usually that is just for tops. We like the boys’ pants and fleece at Carter’s and Eddie Bauer – and both of these stores go up to a children’s size 14. The Children’s Place carries sizes up to size 16, and that’s been a good place for kid ski pants, athletic pants, warm fleece pants, and sherpa hoodies. (Both my boys are crazy for sherpa hoodies!) We buy kid sizes up to 18 at Stitch Fix, Gap, and Old Navy. And Nordstrom, Macy’s, Amazon, and Lands’ End actually go up to a kid size 20!

Oh and in case you are looking for footed pajamas for bigger kids (both my boys still want them!), we have several pairs from Footed Pajamas and like them. After you top out at a kid size XL, you can easily go into adult footed pajamas that are based on height.

So what happens after a kid’s size 20? You enter the brave new world of adult sizing! For joggers and some other types of pants, you just start at an XS size. If your kid is skinny, get pants that have a working drawstring. For jeans, you’re going to need to measure your inseam. Once you know your inseam, shop at Search By Inseam for the exact length you need. Where are we getting our shortest jeans? With ankle length styles being so popular right now, it’s easier than ever to find a shorter inseam for your teen or kid who’s too tall for children’s sizes. You can read our blog post on Short Men’s Jeans or check our buying guide for women’s petite/short inseams.

When your kid is too tall for children’s jeans anymore, don’t panic. Yes, you can grieve that your little one is growing up – that is normal. But after that, you can move on into the adult section, where XS sizes are often on clearance! 😉

Black-owned Companies that Make Affordable Jeans and Pants

In recognition of Juneteenth this weekend, I’m sharing a few great Black-owned companies that make affordable jeans and pants. By affordable, I mean items that are around $100 or less. In researching this post, I came across a number Black-owned companies that have super cool clothes, but you need to be willing and able to pay $500+ for a pair of sweatpants. 😉 So, I’m keeping this list to 7 Black-owned companies that make jeans and pants for around $100 or less. I try to carry as many Black-owned companies on Search By Inseam as I can, but not all of these have affiliate marketing programs that let me feature their goods on my site. Here are 7 affordable Black-owned brands worth supporting! (This post contains affiliate links.)

Where to Buy Tall Jeans – Top 11 Websites

I found a new website for tall women’s jeans! So of course I had to update our old Where to Buy Tall Jeans – Top 10 Websites post to the new and improved Where to Buy Tall Jeans – Top 11 Websites to include it! 🙂

Where to Buy Tall Jeans: 

Have you googled words like tall jeans, long jeans, and extra-long jeans trying to find the best place to buy jeans that fit a tall woman?  I’ve done it, and know it’s a frustrating experience.  Here are the top eleven sites I recommend for tall women’s jeans:

Top 11 Websites for Tall Women’s Jeans:

Search By Inseam
Search By Inseam is a great place to start shopping because the site allows you to search for tall jeans by your inseam length, whether that is 33 inches, 38 inches, or somewhere in between. Firstly, there’s helpful content on measuring your inseam so you can ensure a great fit. Secondly, you’re able to narrow your shopping criteria by brand name, rise and price range. You’ll find designer denim from 7 For All Mankind, AG, Citizens of Humanity, and True Religion, for example. On the other end of the price spectrum are less expensive tall jeans from Old Navy, BP and Vigoss, to name a few. Lastly, you can sign up for notifications when a new pair of jeans is added to the site that fits your long inseam and any other additional criteria you want to add.

Silver Jeans Co.
Silver Jeans Co. lets you search for your exact inseam length, which makes it easy! You’ll find women’s tall jeans in inseam lengths of 33”, 34”, 35”, 36” and 37”. Silver offers free standard shipping and returns on all orders.

New York & Company
New York & Company has some hard-to-find tall inseams like 35.5” for women’s bootcut jeans and 32.5” for tall skinny jeans. Economy shipping is free when you spend $50.01 or more.

Express
Express shows off seasonal trends in denim, but you can also find classic tall bootcut jeans as well. Their long length is typically a 35-inch inseam, though lengths can vary depending on the style. Shipping is free when you spend over $50.

Long Tall Sally
Long Tall Sally carries extra long jeans and pants in inseams of 34”, 35”, 36”, 37” and 38”. They also have a good selection of other tall women’s clothes. For instance, I’ve seen tall shirts, sweaters, pants, sleepwear and maternity jeans. Standard shipping is free in the US when you spend $30 or more.

Lands’ End
Lands’ End stocks tall women’s jeans in 36-inch inseams. These jeans are usually under $80 and the quality is good. As a result, Lands’ End  has many loyal customers. Shipping is free to the US and Canada on orders of $75 or more. This company also frequently offers free shipping on smaller orders, so check the homepage carefully for any current offers and codes.

Gap
Gap has done a good job of adding new jean lengths for tall women lately – and even some tall maternity jeans! We’ve seen inseams of 34, 34.5, 35, 36, 36.5, 37, and sometimes even 38 inches. The company offers free shipping on orders over $25 and free returns on all orders.

Eddie Bauer
Eddie Bauer has a small selection of jeans in their women’s Tall Shop. Their women’s tall inseam length is normally 36-inches and the jeans are priced at $90 or below. Shipping is currently $7.99 within the US. However, it’s important to mention that shipping offers change periodically. Most noteworthy, if you sign up for the free Adventure Rewards program, you’ll get free shipping on all your orders!

Banana Republic
Banana Republic offers women’s tall jeans in inseam lengths of 33-37 inches. They usually don’t make you hunt for the inseam length like Old Navy sometimes does (more on that below). Most of the time, inseams are clearly spelled out in the Fit & Sizing box or under Product Details. Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more. Returns are free for all orders.

Old Navy
Old Navy starts their tall women’s jeans at a 33-inch inseam, and they go up to a 36-inch inseam. If the inseam isn’t listed in the product details, you’ll have to hunt for it in the size chart, which I find really annoying. Tall maternity jeans generally have a 34″ inseam. Shipping is free on orders over $25 and returns are always free.

Nordstrom
Nordstrom carries a great selection of tall designer and mid-priced junior and women’s jeans. You can often find tall maternity jeans as well. Shipping and returns are free. The product quality is high and so is customer service. In addition, basic alterations and tailoring are free, which is an amazing perk!

Tall women’s jeans from all of these sellers and more are available at Search By Inseam, making it a great site to easily find your inseam and do quick comparison shopping

 

Note: This buying guide contains affiliate links that pay Search By Inseam a small commission if you make a purchase at no additional cost to you.

Short Men’s Jeans – Looking for Shorter Inseam Lengths?

In looking to see how people found SearchByInseam.com recently, I noticed many entered the search terms “short mens jeans.” While we’ve carried short inseams for men and women for several years, this was the first time we’d seen a high demand for short men’s jeans. People were specifically looking for men’s jeans in 26″ inseams, 27″ inseams, and 28″ inseam lengths, so I’m going to focus on these lengths for this post. It’s pretty cool to see demand grow in a new category! So for all you short men out there, or people shopping for shorter men’s inseams, this is for you. 😉

Best Brands for Short Men’s Jeans

At Search By Inseam, we carry a good selection of brands that make shorter length jeans for men. These include Express, Old Navy, Gap, Banana RepublicLands’ End, and Levi’s. Eddie Bauer used to have men’s jeans that started at a 20″ inseam length, but they don’t anymore. I don’t know if they were testing the market to see what the demand actually was for inseam lengths that were that short or what… But I do know we had customers buying them. Here’s a little more about each brand that currently carries men’s short inseam lengths:

  1. Express: Express’ short men’s jeans start at a 28″ inseam length. The brand is high on style and trends. You can also find classics like bootcut and straight leg as well. This brand’s sales are typically buy-one-get-one 50% off. The price point is generally less than $90. Men’s inseam lengths go from 28-36 inches in 2-inch intervals.
  2. Old Navy: The length of Old Navy’s short men’s jeans start at 28 inches. Most jeans are under $40 and they are often on sale. Old Navy jeans range in inseam length from 28-36″ and go up 2 inches at a time.
  3. Gap: Gap is another men’s jean brand that goes from a 28″ inseam length to a 36″ inseam length in 2-inch increments. Most men’s jeans are under $80, though premium styles can cost over $100.
  4. Banana Republic: Banana Republic has a lot of men’s slim  and skinny jean styles right now. This brand starts its men’s short inseams at 28″ and goes up to a tall 36″ inseam.
  5. Lands’ End: Lands’ End is cool because the men’s jeans inseam lengths start at 26″ and go up by .25″. So you can order a pair of short men’s jeans with a 26″, 26.25″, 26.5″, 26.75″, 27″, 27.25″, 27.5″, 27.75″, or 28″ inseam. The inseams go all the way up to 36″, so tall men like this brand as well. This brand is high on quality and is periodically on sale.
  6. Levi’s: Good old Levi’s! I think everyone has owned a pair by this brand at one point or another. Some styles of Levi’s come in a men’s 28″ inseam length. It can be difficult to figure out which style is made in a shorter inseam length, but we make it easy at SearchByInseam.com. Just select your inseam length and set the brand you want to search for as Levi’s, and we’ll show you everything that matches your criteria.

Women’s Polar Fleece-Lined Pants

I got a lot of hits on a post I did about wearing these women’s polar fleece-lined pants in Iceland a couple weeks ago. I’ve worn them a bunch over the two years I’ve had them, so when Eddie Bauer had their Columbus Day sale, I snapped up another pair in a different color. I got to break in the new pair this last weekend when my family went hiking in Olympic National Park at Hurricane Ridge. The weather was supposed to be cool and sunny, so I thought they’d be perfect. I actually wound up getting too warm after we chose a trail with a pretty steep incline. Oops!

Back of women's polar fleece-lined pants
Back of women’s polar fleece-lined pants

My favorite thing about these pants is that they are fleece-lined on the inside. This feature keeps me warm – and I’m often cold.  They have a polyester/spandex exterior that blocks wind and light rain. That fabric combo makes them really comfortable and easy to move in – perfect for hiking! This new pair has a green fleece lining (pictured below) and green is my favorite color. 🙂 My old pair has a purple lining. Oh, did I mention the pockets are also lined with polar fleece?! I love that about them. I also love that these pants have tons of pockets. There are two front zippered pockets, two back Velcro pockets, and two Velcro cargo pockets on the legs. I have room for my keys, cards, chapstick, geocaches, or whatever.

These women’s polar fleece-lined pants are available in 3 colors (black, gray, and storm) as well as 3 inseam lengths (29″ for petites, 32″ regular inseam, and 35″ tall inseam). Of course being that I’m 6′ tall, I bought the 35″ tall inseam length. 🙂 The tall size 6 fits me well. Eddie Bauer sizing runs a little big, since I’m normally a 30 in jeans. Sometimes Eddie Bauer is big in the waist on me, but these have no gaping issues.

What to Wear with Tall Glossy Boots

"<yoastmark

What to wear with tall glossy boots

What to wear with tall glossy boots? Well, welcome to October! This is the month where we get to ask these kinds of questions. 🙂 Yesterday was sunny and today it’s all rain. I don’t mind, though. I find the rain comforting at this point in the year, and welcome the chance to be cozy. This is about the time when our boots and rain jackets go into almost daily use. I welcome a heavy rain because it gives me an excuse to wear my favorite boots!

I first saw these Women’s Hunter Original High Gloss Boots when we were in London five years ago. It seemed like all the fashionable women had them. And black was the only color I saw. Some were the tall glossy boots and some were short or matte. As soon as we got home from our trip, I looked into buying them. I quickly discovered they’d be the most expensive rain boots I’d ever considered! Was it worth it to pay over $100 for a pair of boots that would splash in puddles? I thought about it for months and was on the lookout for a sale. Different colors would go on sale from time to time, but not the shiny black ones I coveted. I finally bit the bullet and just ordered them.

For the first year, I kept track of how many times I wore them and calculated the cost per wear. I’ve now worn them dozens of times and my cost per wear decreases every time. I think it was a worthy splurge!

But anyway, what to wear with tall glossy boots like these? My go-to pants are skinny jeans like in the picture above, or a thicker legging. I find that a fitted pant tucks inside the boot well and is the most comfortable choice. Tighter pants also show off the beautiful high gloss boot! 😉 If you are in the market for some new leggings this fall, check out my review of these great $10 leggings from Amazon. They come in a ton of colors and plus sizes, too. Did I mention they are just $10? So really, you can’t go wrong. I talked them up to my mom and she bought a pair as well. She says hers are super soft and comfy, just like mine. She is 5’9″ and I am 6′ and they fit both of us. The leggings are very stretchy.

There’s also helpful content on measuring your inseam so you can ensure a great fit. You can narrow your shopping criteria by brand name, rise (low rise, mid rise, high rise) and by price range.  Sign up for notifications, so you know when we add new jeans or pants that fit your long inseam length. This is my favorite place to shop for long jeans. 🙂

Silver Jeans Co. is another great resource because you can search for your exact inseam length, which makes it easy and fast. You’ll find women’s jeans in inseam lengths of 33”, 34”, 35”, 36” and 37”. Silver offers free standard shipping and returns on all orders. They also have a limited selection of maternity jeans.

New York & Company has some hard-to-find tall inseams like 35.5” for women’s bootcut jeans and 32.5” for tall skinny jeans. Economy shipping is free when you spend $50.01 or more. They often carry jeans in fun colors and styles, so it’s a great place to check out if you want something new and interesting to perk up your wardrobe.

Express shows off seasonal trends in denim. Their long length is typically a 35-inch inseam, though lengths can vary depending on the style. Shipping is free when you spend over $50. Long length Express-branded pants are also available, often in lengths of 33″ and 35″. Be sure to check out the Features & Fabric under the Product Details section to make sure you’re getting the right inseam length.

Lands’ End stocks tall women’s jeans in  34- and 36-inch inseams. Their jeans are usually under $80 and the quality is high, making for many happy customers and good reviews. Shipping offers on this site change periodically, and you can often find a great deal.

Gap has done a good job of adding new jean lengths for tall women lately – and even some tall maternity jeans! We’ve seen inseams of 34″, 34.5″, 35″, 36″, 36.5″, 37″, and sometimes even 38″ inches! The company offers free shipping on orders over $50 and free returns on all orders. I’ve also had good experiences with buying online and picking up in store, if that’s something you’d like to try.

Eddie Bauer has a decent selection of jeans in their Tall Shop. Their tall inseam length for women’s bootcut jeans is normally between 34- and 36-inches, and the jeans are priced at $90 or below. Shipping offers change periodically and the quality is good. You can sign up for their free Adventure Rewards program and get points, certificates, free shipping, and more.

Banana Republic offers women’s inseam lengths of 33-37 inches. They usually don’t make you hunt for the inseam length like Old Navy sometimes does (more on that below); most of the time it’s clearly spelled out in the Fit & Sizing box or under Product Details. Like Gap and Old Navy, shipping is free on orders of $50 or more.

Old Navy starts their tall women’s jeans at a 33.5-inch inseam, and they go up to a 36-inch inseam. If the inseam isn’t listed in the product details, you’ll have to hunt for it in two different tall sizing charts, and then try to guess which is right – unfortunately, sometimes both are incorrect. They are working to correct this, and it’s getting better. Their tall maternity jeans usually have a 34″ inseam. Shipping is free on orders over $50 and returns are always free. While I’m not a huge fan of their jean quality, I do like their tall linen pants and tall pajama pants , especially the fun holiday print pajama pants that come out in October sometime. 🙂

Nordstrom carries a good selection of designer and mid-priced junior and women’s jeans. You can often find tall maternity jeans as well. Shipping and returns are free. Some products are available for in-store pickup, and they have a great free rewards program called the Nordy Club that will get you free alterations, Nordstrom Notes, and more. I also love taking advantage of their free wrapping services when I buy gifts there.

Shopbop is one of our favorites websites for just-released trendy designer denim. The company does an excellent job of keeping their inventory fresh and fashionable, and they have periodic sales where you can snatch up bargains. This is one of the few places we regularly see 38-inch inseams, and consistently see 36 and 37-inch inseams. Tall designer maternity jeans are also available. Shipping and returns are always free. Shopbop is an Amazon-owned company and Prime benefits apply.

Tall jeans from all of these sellers and more are available at Search By Inseam. This website saves you time and money because it’s easy to find your inseam and do quick comparison shopping.

Review of Liverpool Jeans Brenna Denim Trousers

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I got my first Stitch Fix outfit and was in love with it. I loved the vest, the sweater AND the jeans. Now after wearing them a few times, here is my review of Liverpool Jeans Brenna Denim Trousers. Tall girls, listen up! These jeans are tall girl approved. So are the sweater and vest, for that matter.

So, the jeans. I had never even heard of Liverpool Jeans before I got my Stitch Fix box last month. How have I not known about this denim company after running SearchByInseam.com for a decade now?! I have no idea. It’s a British company, I guess, and I’m not British. So anyway, I was a little skeptical when I took the pair of dark wash jeans from my Stitch Fix box. I pulled them on and was instantly impressed. The softness! The stretch! These are truly the most comfortable pair of jeans I’ve ever worn. And I’ve worn a lot of jeans! These Brenna Denim Trousers are made for exclusively for Stitch Fix, so you can’t get them anywhere else. I’d told my stylist that I needed exactly a 35″ inseam and I preferred boot cut jeans. I wrote that I normally wore a size 30 in jeans, but somehow she knew I’d wear a 29 in these. I’m just so impressed that they fit me like a glove!

Here I am in the entire outfit: jeans, sweater and vest.

Here is a closeup of the jeans. The leg does look a little funny because I’ve got tall boots on underneath the jeans. I still need to find a pair of ankle boots that I like and aren’t huge and sloppy around the ankle…

My Review of Liverpool Jeans Brenna Denim Trousers

The wash of these jeans is very dark – a solid navy. I think it pairs well with a black boot, but the style card that came with the outfit suggested a brown ankle boot for more contrast. I think brown boots would work well, but I do like the low contrast option as well. It makes the legs seem even longer!
