For someone with a disproportionately long torso,* I almost always go for high-waisted pants, since that extra bit of length in the leg is crucial. I have a couple pairs of trouser jeans that I love, but they're all in a wide cut and up until recently I hadn't found the perfect pair with a skinny leg. These seemed like the real deal (and for less than $80) - I mean, they're so high and fitted that they kind of channel Sandy at the end of Grease, so I gave them a go. For a brand that I had never tried before, I'm really impressed and plan on scooping up the same style in multiple colors.
*When my husband and I sit at a table, we're the same height and he's half a foot taller than me.
