High-waters, crop tops and hems in all the wrong places … at times leggy ladies may feel like they received the short end of the fashion stick. But tall women no longer need to be held back when it comes to looking like the fashionistas they really are – they just need to know the must-have basics that can transform any wardrobe into a versatile collection of flattering clothing. Here are five necessities you should add to your closet today.

Designer Jeans
A few great pairs of jeans are a wardrobe essential, and designer jeans can work as well in the office as they can for an evening out and about. From structured wide-leg jeans to distressed skinnies, there is a seemingly endless variety of cuts, colors and detailing to choose from. Some of the top denim brands like Hudson, Paige, and Fidelity offer inseams from 34-38-inches, so you’re covered no matter how statuesque a beauty you are. Check out Tall Couture’s denim collection for tall women!

Long Tanks
Crop tops may be trending right now, but let’s be honest, most of the time we tall ladies want tops with some length. A long tank is a wardrobe staple that works well under your favorite cardigan or blazer, or simply by itself for casual warm-weather weekend wear. Get yourself a collection of colorful long tanks and you’ll find yourself reaching for them time and time again. Start with basic black and white, then keep adding more colors as the mood strikes you. With more than 20 colors to choose from, the SugarLips Long Seamless Camisole will never be boring!

Gorgeous Jackets
Every tall lady needs a few fantastic jackets to help her transition from season to season by adding chic comfort to her existing style. For warmer months and transition seasons like spring and fall, a designer jean jacket is ideal. Check out the Hudson Signature Jean Jacket in Rinse. Peacoats, belted jackets and sleek leather are other styles that tall ladies can rock with confidence.

Maxi skirts
Maximize your wardrobe’s potential with a few great maxi skirts. Long, flowing and lovely, maxi skirts are a comfy way to add a feminine touch to your attire throughout the year. We adore the Saint Grace August Maxi Skirt in Liberty/White, and the Saint Grace Tulip Skirt in Cinnamon is actually more of a hi-lo midi but still a great wardrobe staple! Pair with a light sweater or your favorite T-shirt for a look that is as fitting for a casual brunch as it is for the beach.

Versatile dresses
Whether you adore dresses daily or reserve them for special occasions, every tall woman needs an easy-to-wear dress she can turn to month after month. In addition to your favorite LBD, convertible dresses, maxi dresses and cocktail dresses fit and flatter lengthier lovelies. Bold patterns are super trendy right now, which is why we love the Point Dume Dress in Black & White Chevron Stripe. Wear by itself or pair with a pashmina or cashmere cardigan for chillier evenings.
