What woman doesn’t own a pair of black pants? Almost as versatile as the little black dress, the black pants is a tried and true standby staple in any wardrobe. But what do you do when they become tattered and fray and all around unwearable? Here are a few tips for finding the perfect black pants just for you.
For those looking for a pair of black pants that make your legs look longer try a pair that has a front seam that extends from waist to ankle. In a skinny jean this style helps create a long sleek line and adds inches to short legs.
An all around perfect fit for all, try black pants that have a hem that skims the floor with a slight flare. This elongates the top half of your body and pares down the bottom. Make sure they hit right at your waist to ensure they are highlighting your smallest area.
Need an extra lift in the buttocks area? Look for a pair that has a spandex panel. This will raise your bum to new heights. For less bulk in that area opt for a pair that has welt pockets in the back.
Looking for the perfect black skinny jeggings? Find a pair that has an ample cut along the hips and thighs. This provides for a more forgiving look. If the legs are long pair them with a pair of ankle booties and tuck in.
For the plus size ladies looking for a perfect black pant for every day wear that’s not too casual or too dressy, try a pair with an adjustable waist band with a button tab. This gives the pants plenty of stretch that flatters your curves.
Curvy hipped ladies will benefit from pants that are stretchy with a contoured waist that accentuates a smaller waist. Find a pair that has a generous cut throughout the hips.
Skinny pants aren’t just for skinny girls. Pants that don’t have front pockets or a faux pocket look and a roomier fit in the ankle provide a tapered look for the plus size ladies.
Need to hide a tummy? Find a pair that has an ultra wide and stretchy waistband that helps instantly vanish any tummy pudge.
For the maximum dressy elegant for nights only black pants, look for a pair that has a bit of shimmer to it. Fabrics with a shine to them as well as a straight fit make for the perfect evening elegance.
Favor the wide leg look? Find a pair of chinos (preferably with spandex) that just gently lie on the waist balancing the body’s lower problem areas to the eye.
Want a classic look that never goes out of style? Opt for a straight leg cut. Never giving into a trendy makeover the straight leg cut works with any top you own.
Not your mom’s pants…High waisted pants have come a long way since the 80s. Today’s versions have a rise that hits right at the belly button and no pockets in the front. The new silhouette is perfect for giving a sleek look to shorter frames.
What’s your favorite cut for black pants? Do you embrace the new high waisted pants or do you prefer the classic straight leg cut?
