In recent months, many of you have mentioned that you have trouble finding sweaters that are long enough for you. (At 5’1″, I have the opposite problem. 😉 )
It’s not your imagination. With the current trend toward higher-waisted and fuller pants, shorter (or even cropped) sweaters have become more predominant.
Longer sweaters for women
So I’ve been making notes of which brands either offer sweaters and tops in Tall sizes, or just tend to offer a lot of longer cuts. Here are a few you might want to check out.
If you love a long-over-lean silhouette, you’ll find a lot of options at Chico’s. The double v-neck striped sweater I’m wearing above hits me at the low hip, but on the website it hits the model (who I presume is 5’9″ or 5’10”) at the mid hip. It’s available in sizes 00 (2) to 4 (20-22). (I’m wearing size 00.)
The shirttail hem on this bateau neck sweater adds length and coverage.
Here’s a bold, bright v-neck sweater in a wool-free mix.
Today only, Chico’s is offering pima cotton tunics for $29.
Talbot’s is another brand with a good selection of longer sweaters. (In fact, I’ve found even their Petite sweaters run a bit long.) This wool-free sweater with a shoulder button detail is available in several colors, in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Plus Petite sizes.
Talbot’s is having a Customer Appreciation Event. Get 40% off one item with code CLASSIC.
J.Jill carries a Tall size range for many of their clothing styles, including sweaters. This 100% cotton sweater with intarsia stripes is offered in Misses, Petite, Plus and Tall sizes, and in an ivory/tan color combo too. (Save 30% off your purchase with code 30FEB21)
Here and there…
While it’s true that a lot of Madewell’s sweaters seem to be leaning toward the shorter, boxy side of the spectrum, this one looks to be quite long. (And that’s the only reason I haven’t snapped it up.) Sizes XX-Small to X-Large.
