I recently ripped my favourite tall skinny jeans across the knee – aaarrggghh! It was such a low moment in my week but on a positive note, they are over 15 years old and have served me very well. Luckily, I don’t have to part with them just yet because thanks to the current trend, I’ve been unexpectedly propelled in to fashionable – going from distressed to distressed denim chic in one swift rip!

As you’ll all know, I can’t just pop out and buy a replacement pair because the style has long since disappeared from tall girl reach. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever – the reason behind a lot of tall wardrobe hoarding, I’m sure! I have other jeans but I’ve been having a browse, seeing what’s out there and it’s looking good.

Tall Premium Denim

I’ve had Tallgirls.co.uk Dream Denim (2) in my wardrobe for a couple of years now and because of the comfort factor and flattering fabric, they’re up there among my trusted favourites. Although I haven’t yet tried them out, I’m loving these blues from Talltique (1&3) as well as the work-appropriate NYDJ pair (4), which is available from Long Tall Sally.
