i’m not tall so i have no advice for you regarding your actual question, but i can give you encouragement… i think a cropped leather jacket would look awesome on you anyway. it would nip you at the smallest part of your waist and be a flattering silhouette. i was just looking for leather jackets online, however, and this site
has really good deals on all kinds of leather jacket styles in the women’s section. not just cropped but longer, belted, colors, blazers… and the prices are really good at the mo too.
