Choosing the Right Pair of Pants for Women

Pants are the second-most important piece of clothing women should be critical in choosing. Oftentimes, we focus more on the label than how it’s going to look with our closet space of top wear. Pants, just like any other piece of clothing, should embody not only our craving for fashion, but our sense of utility for it as well.

Pants should always adore our body shape. We shouldn’t force a sexy pair of denims if they won’t fit our waistline. Women with large thighs, hips and butts, and usually small waistlines to match should avoid wearing tight-fitting jeans. But if you still persist on wearing jeans, allow an inch of fabric for that extra amount of “stretch”, allowing you to walk or run with ease. Also, consider wearing darker denim colors, because stone-washed jeans will never compliment those hips. It’s also your option to go for stylized jeans like ‘flare’ (recommended for taller women) or ‘slim fit/skinny’ (recommended for petite/average size women).

For women with big thighs or hips, the basic rules to remember are:

โ€ข Pick pants with higher waistlines.
โ€ข Avoid pants that are too tight or too flare-y at the bottom.
โ€ข Avoid overly embroidered pants.
 โ€ข You can experiment with pant colors. But for denims, light-colored is a no-no.

For women with a thinner figure:

โ€ข Cropped pants are okay, but make sure you have an overall skinny body profile – not just the legs, but the torso, shoulders and arms as well. Otherwise, you’ll have to settle for full-length pants.
โ€ข Never wear skinny jeans that exceed your ankles (except if you’re wearing platform shoes)
โ€ข Choose jeans with lower waistlines.
โ€ข Stop looking for jeans that will emphasize your butt.
 โ€ข Light-colored jeans will accentuate your legs.

And while we’re on the subject of Outfit Stud Heels  height, Capri pants and cargo pants compliment both short and long legs. Cargo pants, crinkle pants, carpenter pants, khakis and navy pants look better on skinny women who have height to show off. Denim pants, on the other hand, when worn by tall women, should instead go for flare or skinny instead of cropped. Pants for petites should be more tight-fitting than loose, to give an illusion of longer legs. Skinny cords, boot cords, denim trousers, and riding leggings are what we would recommend.

Pant colors are as important as the mixing elements: get the mixture right and you’ve got a solution; flunk the color combination and you’re a lab explosion waiting to happen. If you’re ditching out on the idea of denim pants and moving on to more colorful substitutes, here are some pointers to remember:

โ€ข Unless you’re walking the ramp, there’s no reason to go for a monotone color from head to toe.
โ€ข Highly-saturated pant colors are only hot during the summer. Otherwise, go for breezier colors.
โ€ข Leather pants have only one color: black. Otherwise, you’re to a rodeo.
 โ€ข Be the judge of your own fashion. If the colors match, wear it; if they don’t, there’s always the denim pants lying around.

As a woman, you’re bound to do almost everything in life, meaning you should always keep a collection of different pants for different occasions in your closet space.
