Erica Jones, 30, floral and event designer, Cambridge
PROBLEM "I don't own any denim because I can't find any that fit," says Jones, who cites her 6-foot height and small frame as a challenge in finding jeans that work, even at stores for tall women. "It seems if I find an adequate length, the jeans are too large in the waist." Her perfect pair, she says, wouldn't sit too low on the hips.
SOLUTION J Brand "Pencil Leg" cotton-spandex mid-rise slim-fit jeans, $158
The narrow leg shows off Jones's long, lean frame. The narrow leg also means these jeans can be worn shorter than a boot-cut or flare, making them long enough for vertically gifted Jones. They look great with a flat or dressy with a pump, and can easily be tucked into boots in winter.
