Review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants

As I mentioned in my post, What to Pack for a Tropical Vacation Using Only Your Carry-on, I bought these Old Navy Tall Linen Pants for my upcoming trip to the South Pacific. I actually bought two pairs because I love linen pants. 🙂 Here’s my review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants in green. Since I’m packing light and only taking one pair of pants, these didn’t make the cut for trip. I’ll only be taking the black pair because they go with all the tops I’m packing.

Review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants
Review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants – photo credit Jason Henderson

OK. First of all, these pants are a linen and rayon blend and they sit low on the waist. They have a drawstring waist and a relaxed fit. I love linen pants and have quite a few colors already. Black, white, tan, and a blue and white stripe pair are already hanging in my closet. I decided to try this sage green and am happy I did! It’s a great neutral and goes well with blue (as pictured), orange, yellow, pink, white and black.

The most noteworthy thing about these pants is the inseam length listed is incorrect! I ordered a tall small and the Old Navy tall size chart says these pants should have a 36″ inseam. Yet when I got them, I measured the inseam length at only 33.5 inches. What a difference! This length actually works well for me. I am 6′ tall and normally need a 35″ inseam for bootcut jeans and pants, but these are a loose drapey fit so a shorter inseam works well.

Why is this? When measuring the inseam length you need for a pair of pants, you measure from the crotch seam to the hem. In a drapey pair of pants like these linen pants, the crotch seam is not tight to your body like a pair of fitted pants. Rather, it drapes down several inches and as a result, the inseam length needed is much shorter than normal. Also, it is important to keep in mind the type of shoe you will most often wear with pants when determining the length of inseam you’ll need. Due to the fact that I’ll be wearing these with flat sandals, I didn’t need to account for extra heel height.

Buy linen pants in the exact length you need right now at SearchByInseam.com. Linen pants won’t be available much longer because it’s getting late in the season. The best selection is in early to late spring.

Tall Joggers with a 35″ Inseam Length

These tall joggers have a 35″ inseam! Normally joggers (i.e. jogging pants) stop at about ankle-length, so these would actually pool on me. While I need a 35″ inseam for full-length pants, I only need a 31″ inseam for skinny leg or ankle-length pants. These Tall Cuffed Jersey Pants come in both grey and navy colors and have a cute and classy tipped drawstring. These sweatpants would be great for working out, running errands, or lounging around home. Which reminds me… Is anyone else reading The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living? Because these pants are very hygge. While I’m only about halfway through the book so am not yet an expert, I think the Danish would approve of these cozy pants! 🙂 And as I’m reading, we can all use some more comfy-cozy in our crazy lives.

Anyway, it’s often hard for tall people to find lounge pants that are long enough, but these should fit the bill for most of us. Who can be cozy when their ankles are exposed? I guess you could add some warm woolly socks if you’re lounging at home, but that’s not ideal if you want to wear these out and about with some cute slip-on sneakers. If you need something longer than a 35″ inseam, consider these 39″ inseam yoga pants I posted about recently. Guys looking for tall lounge pants can check out these 34″ inseam sleep pants, but I’m struggling to find anything longer right now for men. I’ll keep looking and post men’s workout and lounge pants here. In the meantime, you can find more tall women’s workout and lounge pants in every length and style at SearchByInseam.com.

39″ inseam yoga pants exist! Yes, they actually do! I couldn’t believe it when I saw these yesterday. I added them to SearchByInseam.com right away. They are the longest pair of yoga pants I’ve ever seen.

These Victoria’s Challenge Tummy Slimmer Compression Flare Boot Cut Black Pants come in inseam lengths of 39″, 37″, 35″, 33″, 31″, and 29″. They range in length from super long to quite petite. After you select the length, you can choose mid-rise or high-rise. I’ve never seen that option before! There’s a 30 day money back guarantee and the description says the compression fabric supports your muscles. I think my muscles need all the support they can get. 🙂

Wearing a Shift as a Top Works Well for Tall Frame

Yes, I’m wearing a shift as a top instead of a dress – and it actually works! I’d normally nix the idea of wearing such a short dress because I’m so tall it would be super short. But I’ve been following Tanasha of Pretty Tall Style for a few weeks now and she pulls it off so well! She’s 6’4″ (which is 4″ taller than me) and I love how she wears this blue mini dress as a top. I’ve never thought of wearing a short dress as a top before, but it works so well with skinny jeans! I decided to try the trick of wearing a shift as a top for myself and ordered this Corey Red Kendra Shift from Rent the Runway as part of my Unlimited subscription.

This shift is the best, brightest color of orange. I love it how pops! It has a perforated pattern that is really fun and has handy side pockets. There is lining from the shoulder to the hemline. The three-quarter-length sleeves aren’t lined, so your skin is visible through the holes on the arms. I received a lot of compliments on the shift and I liked how it looked with my Hudson Nico Elysian Mid Rise Skinny Jeans that I reviewed here (available on SearchByInseam.com in a 30″ inseam) and my Earthies nude flats that have amazing arch support (and are available in sizes 5-12).

Other Rent the Runway reviewers wore this as a short dress. I think I’m the first one to wear it as a top with jeans! I’m going to have to try this again! No more ruling out short dresses; I’ll just re-purpose them! Thanks to Tanasha of Pretty Tall Style  for letting me in on this fashion secret for tall women. 🙂 Photo by Jason Henderson.

Review of Vince White Geo Lace Overlay Top

I rented this Vince White Geo Lace Overlay Top from Rent the Runway as part of the Unlimited program. It was a fun rental that I wore a couple of times while I had it. The top is structured, albeit a little boxy on my hourglass frame. (Tops with cinched/fitted waists look best on an hourglass figure.) But I like that this top is more dressed up than just a simple t-shirt. It has a white cotton weave on top with a really cool geometric design. It’s partially lined and was perfect for my son’s spring birthday party. I was baking up a storm for his birthday brunch party and this kept me cool and comfortable while also still festive. It was long enough in the torso for my 6′ frame and I received several complements. I did have to be careful not to snag the lace overlay, especially when hanging it up. I paired this Vince top with my Paige Transcend Manhattan Boot Cut Jeans that I reviewed here and continue to keep getting compliments on! They are my favorite pair of jeans right now, although I’m venturing in to my cropped jeans on warm sunny days. Sun, please stay! These tall Paige jeans are available in a 34.75″ inseam and you can find them at SearchByInseam.com.

Designer Maternity Jeans: Are They Worth It?

Are designer maternity jeans worth it? I mean, you only wear them for a few months, maybe longer if you’re pregnant more than once… But the price tag is steep – usually around $200. That’s a lot when you’re looking at setting up a nursery and acquiring all that necessary baby gear.

When I first started Search By Inseam, it was about 2 years before I was pregnant. I wasn’t shopping for maternity jeans for myself yet, but I was adding them to the site. I was also shopping for tall women who needed extra long maternity jeans. It was tough to fill their requests, as there just wasn’t much out there in longer lengths. There were usually a couple options of long maternity jeans in a 34″ inseam, but not anything longer. What I noticed then was that anything longer than a 34″ inseam tended to be a designer maternity jean. And the price jumped by at least $100 on average to move into that designer jean category.

Why are designer maternity jeans so expensive? It’s simple: you are paying for quality. In many cases, you are also paying for USA craftsmanship as well. The denim is high quality, the buttons are high quality and the big thing – the elastic belly panel – is much higher quality than a non-designer maternity jean’s belly panel. If you try on regular maternity jeans and designer maternity jeans, you’ll know right away that the belly panel on the designer pair is going to stay up. It’s not going to fall down on you and it’s not going to stretch out like a regular maternity jean panel will. It hugs your baby bump and provides so much support that you’ll want to wear that panel all. the. time. I’m  not kidding. Designer maternity jeans fit in the butt and the gut. They flatter your shape and the denim is soft and comfortable.

I have a 35″ inseam, so when I was pregnant my only options were designer maternity jeans. That was just fine with me, because I loved my Citizen’s Bootcut Maternity Jeans so much! They made any outfit flattering. I only needed to add a pair of comfortable flats and a maternity top, and I was good to go. I wore them for about 8 months total over two pregnancies. My belly never got very big. I think that was because my torso was so long and both boys were so low in my uterus that it took forever to really look like I was pregnant.

I paid about $180 for the jeans and wore them for about 8 months, which comes to $22.50 per month for a great pair of jeans. To me, that price was totally worth it. If you’re unsure if designer maternity jeans are worth it for you, I’d encourage you to do the math. Figure out how much they cost, how many months you think you’ll wear them, and what that works out to per month of wear. I only needed one pair of maternity jeans (no other pants, skirts, or dresses were needed) and a few tops, so I actually spent very little overall on my maternity wardrobe.

Here is an example of designer maternity jeans: Paige Denim Transcend Manhattan Bootcut Maternity Jeans in a 35.5″ inseam length. I’ve reviewed Paige’s Transcend Manhattan Bootcut Jeans here before (the non-maternity version) and they are an amazing pair of jeans – currently my favorite! The denim quality is excellent and you can tell by zooming in just how supportive those belly panels really are.

Tall Women’s Fleece Pullover – Review

tall women's fleece pullover
Patagonia Re-Tool Snap Pullover

I’ve been looking for a tall women’s fleece pullover that’s super soft and I found a good one!

After a really long winter spring has finally sprung in Seattle. I haven’t put away my winter clothes just yet, though! I get cold easily and I love to be warm and snuggly when I’m at home – or really anywhere I guess. My two sweet boys each have a fuzzy children’s fleece pullover from Hana Andersson that they love and affectionately call their “Fuzzy.” I kept telling them, “I want my own Fuzzy!” 🙂 This Women’s Patagonia ‘Re-Tool’ Snap Pullover in coral fits the bill for a fuzzy tall women’s fleece pullover. I’m crazy about the vibrant coral color which is perfect for spring and makes me think that it’s not too late to be buying a warm, cozy fleece pullover – even though it IS April after all…

The details:
This pullover has a kangaroo hand-warmer pocket in front that is similar to the front pocket on a hooded sweatshirt and is great for feeling snuggly. The snap pocket is a bit retro and the neck snaps all the way up to keep you even warmer. While it’s not marked as a women’s size tall, the body and sleeves fit my long arms and long torso on my 6-foot tall body, so I think I can safely say that this is approved for tall women out there like myself! Hurry, run – get your own Fuzzy before it’s too late! 🙂

In the photo above, I paired this tall women’s fleece pullover with my 35″ inseam Joe’s Jeans. Joe’s were my first designer jeans and they are still a favorite brand of mine for comfort, fit and length. You’ll find Joe’s Jeans and other 35″ inseam jeans at SearchByInseam.com.
