The Denim Jean
You may think you’ve got this category covered—and presumably many of you do. Nevertheless, no pants guide would be complete without a look at the latest incarnations of this rough-and-tough fabric.
The Black Pant
They top the charts for the most practical, timeless, versatile (need we go on?) wardrobe piece. And since not all black pants are created equal, here’s our selection of styles that work for the office, evening, weekend and beyond.
The Straight-Leg Pant
Perhaps the most universally flattering silhouette, a straight leg creates a clean, leg-lengthening line that flatters most every figure. Yes, even women with curves can make this silhouette work. Avoid skintight styles in favor of soft draping. Darker hues create an added slimming effect.
Big interview? Meeting with the boss? This silhouette has you covered. We love the classic wide-leg variety for its tireless ability to flatter regardless of those pesky day-to-day weight fluctuations.
The Trendy Pant
These aren’t necessarily going to be the most practical pants you’ll ever purchase, but they help take the monotony out of getting dressed in the morning. From super-luxe leather-and-suede jeans to street-cool cutout leggings that layer under everything from a high-low dress to your favorite cozy fall sweater, this category is all about having fun.
