i don’t think that wearing long gloves looks ridiculous, but i do think it is uncomfortable or unpleasant.
i have a friend with a similar issue – she solved by taking a looks in the guy’s section in the stores…or by buying clothes that are bigger in size.
I went once to the men’s section; but I couldn’t find anything that pleased me… and as I’m skinny, taking a bigger size makes me look like I’m drowning in my clothes…posted over 2 years ago
i have the same problem as im1.77,the jacket issue i usually put a sweater of the same color under,wich do the trick.the pants problem is much bigger in my case they fit perfectly but for some reason the waist is a little small…used drowning clothes when younger and really sucks but just because i was lazy :Dposted over 2 years ago
men’s clothes are made to fit the shape of a man’s body. women’s bodies have curves (even skinny girls have some!) I went to Levi’s once, they have different sizes for the legs, but I don’t have enough money to buy one of those jeans! I wish some brand could do the same for the sleeves, but I imagine this would be luxury as well…posted over 2 years ago
One of my cousins, who is 1m85, has a trick for the pants: she wears ankle booties, no one remarks that her pants are too short. but she still has frozen wrists in winter :pposted over 2 years ago
I feel your pain-I’m around 1m78-1m80 as well.
For jeans I normally buy Cheap Monday or the longer inseam jeans from Urban Outfitters. Uniqlo jeans are also long enough for me, but I find the rise is too low, so I normally go for high rise styles that cover enough of my long torso. If you are thinner than me though (I’m XS on top, M on bottom) and don’t need to cover a muffin top they would probably work for you-and they’re under $50US.
The only brand of wool coat I’ve found long enough for me so far has been Mackage and Soia&Kyo (same company)-sometimes the coats at Zara are also long enough even in XS/S-but it depends on the style.
Topshop has a tall section as well-the stock is a bit limited but it’s a good option for pants and jeans.
Dress pants for work have been the worst challenge for me….I’ve splurged and bought Theory ones which I actually need to hem, and Gap makes a long inseam too which I have to hem as well.
Wish I could be more help! I know a couple of other good sources but I believe they are American brands that I’m unsure you have in France.posted over 2 years ago
Many designers have additional sizes online. For example, many Free People pants are made and available with an extra long inseam.posted over 2 years ago
Actually, I have almost the same height as you, but I don’t have this problem.I always find clothes for me in Bershka, ZARA, H&M or New Yorker. Maybe I’m just lucky!
Oh..I wish I was around 175 cm. I’m 10 cm short. Huhuhu.. Any way, You can find outfits at Uniqlo and Zara.posted over 2 years ago

yes I find sometimes pants at Zara, but some models fit, some don’t… weird. And it’s the same for the sleeves. I found that many British or American jeans brands had different leg sizes, I bought one at Hollister and I’m pretty happy with it, sadly is doesn’t seem to exist for more formal pants.posted over 2 years ago
