The New Jeans Every Tall Girl Needs ASAP
Style du Monde
There's a new denim brand in town that's changing the jean shopping game for long-legged women—and it goes by the name Midheaven.
We had a chance to chat with Kathryn Brolin, founder and CEO of the brand, asking her about everything from what drove her to create a denim band specifically catered to tall women to her best tips on how to choose the right pair of jeans.
Brolin, who is 5'11", shared with us that she, much like many who are above-average height-wise, found it difficult to find fashion-forward jeans that had the right length.
"As an adult, I would see various denim lines doing one or two specific styles for taller women, but for years, I waited for brand that catered specifically to tall women: a brand that produced styles that were on-trend, sexy, fun, and made you feel like they were made especially for you," she explained. So she made it her goal to fill this hole in the denim marketplace—and she did it.
Currently, Midheaven offers four different jeans—a flare and three skinnies of different washes—available with inseams that range from 33" to 38", depending on the style. Another important thing worth mentioning? The jeans are eco-friendly. As Brolin explains of their sustainability factor, "Our fabric comes from the greenest denim mill in the world, with 40% of its cotton being sourced from the Better Cotton Initiative, [and] all of the waste products from its spinning, warping, and dying departments are recycled."
As for her tips on how to find the perfect pair of jeans? Simple. "I think the best thing to do is chose your jeans based on your lifestyle," she told us. Now read on to shop the four jeans styles currently available on Midheaven.
