Tall, skinny trouser?

12 replies

Is there such a thing as a tall, skinny, trouser? Ideally high waisted. I want something that clings to my ankle and calf so it doesn't look gross tucked into boots. I have plenty of jeans that fit the bill but looking for something a bit smarter for work. So many trousers seen to be cropped or ankle grazers!

Thanks for the reply. I can't click on the link? I'll have a look on the La Redoute website.

Thanks for the suggestions but "normal" length ankle grazers are too short for me 😢 And if they are not from a tall section I get the lovely combination of muffin top and camel toe.

Have you tried next/dps/long tall Sally/new look/asos?

I'm a 36" leg so I don't bother looking anywhere else tbh.

Yes tried all of those apart from dps... where/what is that? I actually have an order on the way from LTS so fingers crossed.

Dorothy Perkins tall, they are often cut slimmer as attract a young market so you might get the skinnies you are looking for!

Thanks, had no idea they did tall! Haven't been in one in years.

I don't think they do tall in any stores now, it's all online. But generally a proper 36" leg at least.

Topshop do tall in the larger stores - jeans are great. Think everywhere else only sell online, soo wrong as most shops do petite range in stores
