Insomniac Sale Picks: Tall Skinny Cords

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Suzanne requested a few picks for skinny cords in tall lengths, so here we go:

athleta corduroy slims

Athleta Corduroy Slims – was $89, now $29.99

Athleta maintains these are a mid-rise skinny, but they look fairly low to me! Absolutely adore the curved side seams and pocket detailing. Available in gray, purple, tan, and winter white in tall sizes 4 -14. Also in standard and petite sizes. (Pennington’s has skinny cords in fairly similar colors in sizes 14- 28. Not on sale, though.)

jcrew toothpick cord

J.Crew Toothpick Cord – was $98, now $88

These are ankle length cords, but available in tall inseams and meant for women 5’9″ and taller. The toothpick style is a low rise, but remarkably comfortable nonetheless. This red is the only color on sale, but these also come in navy, forest green, winter white, orchid, and olive at full price. Available in tall sizes 26 – 32. Size availability varies by color.


LOFT Julie Skinny Cord$59.50

You caught me. These aren’t on sale. But I’m throwing them in regardless because tall, full-length cords are tough to find and these come in a gorgeous array of colors: Winter white, tan, taupe-y gray, navy, cinnamon, dark burgundy, maroon, charcoal, forest green, black, pale pink, and cognac. All in tall inseams! (33.25″ in this case.)

P.S. For a truly skinny fit to wear with tunics, try these corduroy leggings.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for skinny cords in tall lengths:

  1. Eddie Bauer – Just that one style right now, but EB nearly always stocks lengths. And cords.
  2. Land’s End – So you’ve got cord leggings in tall and slim-but-not-skinny pants to choose from. Both in great colors!
  3. Gap – Legging cords come in tall sizes! And SO many great colors.
  4. Urban Outfitters – Many UO pants will have a 34″ inseam or longer, including these mid-rise cords.

    My go-to site for all things Tall is A little on the pricier side, but good quality – and they have a slightly larger range of sizes than some other options. (It’s also nice to find a whole variety of pieces – not just pants – that are designed for a taller frame!) They have a skinny cord option up right now, although it is not on sale.

    A little off topic, but have the clothing makers completely lost their minds when it comes to pant rises? Did we get used to pants that are so extremely low, they make a regular low rise seem like a mid-rise?
