A Guide to Women's Pants
With so many options available, it can be difficult finding the right fit that offers the comfort and support you need. Not sure where to begin your search? No problem! Here are a few tips on finding women's pants that provide a flattering look and a perfect fit.
Choose a Fit
To find the best pants fit, it's important to know your body shape and size. Most women never measure themselves, but there are various reasons why it's important to get to know your numbers. And while sizing may vary between brands, you can utilize this size chart for general guidance.
Generally speaking, classic options like trousers, cropped pants and boot cuts flatter most figures. A loose style such as boyfriend jeans typically balances out a figure with wide shoulders and narrow hips. Now let's take a look at a few styles that can be a little more flattering for different body types.
Curvy fit pants are designed for hourglass shapes to provide a perfect fit at both the hips and waist. If you've had to size up for jeans to fit your hips only to create a gap in the waist, then curvy pants might be for you.
Trendier styles such as leggings or skinny pants provide a flattering look on hourglass figures with slim legs. But they don't just look great on slim legs. If you're heavier in the thigh area, complete your fashion ensemble with a long stylish shirt or sweater. Skinny cropped pants offer a classic style, perfect with ballet flats or women's heels.
Every woman should be comfortable wearing women's slim-fit pants, no matter her size. So, if you're looking for a way to enhance your shape without clinging, slim-cut pants are the way to go.
Straight leg pants offer a more laidback look than skinny pants and are an ideal style for any body type. Because they create a straight visual line along the legs, they're perfect for wearing with a tailored striped shirt or blazer. For a more casual look, opt for straight jeans paired with a T-shirt and sandals or boots.
Consider the Leg Opening
The leg style of pants also determines how the pants will look on you. Whether you're searching for work pants, dressy pants, or an everyday pair, you'll want to have versatile and comfortable options to explore. Therefore, if you prefer a tight fit in the thigh area but want a loose fit below the knee, opt for boot cut style pants. They're also a great option to pair with fashionable boots that fit over the leg. Additional leg-opening styles include:
Wider at the ankle than boot cut legs, this style is ideal for creating the illusion of curves and providing a balance for wider hips.
Look sharp in women's wide-leg dress pants that start widening at the hips for extra room and provide a chic day-to-night look.
A more comfortable option, joggers are perfect for lounging around or commuting in a relaxed, fashionable look.
Find Your Ideal Pants Rise
In short, there's so much to consider when it comes to women's pants. But before you head off to try on different styles, remember that rise matters. The rise is the area between the crotch and the top of the pants' waistband, and there are three different types of rises:
Low rise pants sit low or below the hips. They're a great choice when you want to balance out your figure or accentuate longer legs.
Mid-rise pants sit between the hips and the belly button and are the best option for flattering most body types. If you've battled a muffin top or just need a little more support in the tummy area, then this is a great option.
High-rise pants, also known as "mom jeans,"" fit closely to the belly button and reduce the appearance of any bulging at the waistband.
