Pants perfection

Let’s talk about better living! Our new interactive family corner aims to expand our lifestyle horizons with practical little pearls of wisdom from the editor and input from our readers.

Choosing the right style of pants for your body type can be frustrating. Every woman wants something that flatters, which can be challenging, especially with unique body types. Remember, knowing how to dress your specific body type will help you find the correct size so that your pants fit in all the right places. Here is a guide that might help you find the best-fitting pants this fall.

For plus-size women
Go for a wide-leg hem to balance you out. Vertical stripes will create a slimmer look and give the illusion of a more streamlined shape. A pair of flat-fronted, tailored wide-leg trousers is also flattering on a plus-size shape.

For petite women
Go for a coloured pair to give yourself more of a slender look. Try to avoid a style that overwhelms and find something proportionate to your shape. Super-skinny jeans are one of the best options because they give the illusion of longer legs.

For boy-shaped women
Go for styles that have a nipped waist to give the illusion of shape. This style is best for those who are lean and have no curves. For an easy-wearing fall ensemble, pair high-waisted pants with a fitted tank worn under a cropped jacket.

For women with long, lean legs
Straight-leg pants are great for a stylish fall look. Bootcut styles that highlight the length of your legs is an asset but remember to make sure the hem of your pants falls to the bottom of your heel.

For curvy women
An hourglass shape needs a pair of pants that will accentuate a smaller waist, but has some give through the hips and thighs to balance out your curves. A pair of wide-legged, tailored trousers with a slight flare through the leg is a stylish, yet comfortable choice, while flared jeans can balance curvy hips.
