Finding the Perfect Pants

Finding the right pair of pants for your body type can quickly turn into a daunting chore if you’re unsure of exactly what you’re looking for. There are so many factors when choosing pants, but we’re here to help you find that perfect pair!

FITS

Bootcut – Bold silhouette with a tapered fit that flares at the ankle. Bootcut styles have a major flattering effect, adding shape to your figure.

Straight – Straight fit from knee to hem. Straight styles compliment any body shape, balancing out your figure and creating a longer leg look.

Skinny – Snug from hip to hem. Skinny styles accentuate your lower half and flatter your backside!

Slim – A combination of Skinny and Straight, with a tapered fit from knee to hem. Slim styles show off your curves without being too fitted.

Wide-Leg – Loose fit from thigh to hem. Wide-leg styles give a nod to workwear pants while flattering and elongating your shape. Great for style, as long as the top is cropped or shorter to balance out your figure.

 

COLOR

Dark Wash – More “formal”. Dark wash jeans can pair nicely with a button-down shirt or blouse for the office or girls’ night out.

Medium Wash – Can be casual OR formal. Medium wash jeans can be dressed up or down simply, depending on your top and accessory use.

Light Wash – More casual. Light wash jeans are perfect for running errands, family time, and lounging around the house!

 

Choose a color for whatever floats your boat! All colors can work for any event or activity. Try to think of other colors besides basic denim! Pants can be in greys, blacks, pinks, greens, plaid, polka dots, you name it! Fashion has no limits.

 

LENGTH

In most cases, the length is the deciding factor of what you will buy. Your shoe choice affects how long your pants should be! If you want to wear a short bootie, ankle-length is the way to go. If you want to wear flats or sandals, you can wear longer bootcut pants or cropped wide-leg pants; you have more options!

 

FABRICS

The fabric will affect the level of stretch in your pants. Because of that, pants such as corduroy will have less stretch and therefore you may need to size up. Denim is known to have more stretch, so you may need to even size down. No matter the fabric, you should always try on the pants to ensure a perfect fit. All brands, fabrics, and cuts are slightly different in their sizing.
