What’s better than being fashionable is doing it the right way. When it comes to pants – just like any other piece in your wardrobe – you should choose the cut that best fits you. Although sometimes you might want to try to master a certain trend, your body shape might not allow you to do so. However, keep in mind that there’s always a solution to find your way around it and include it in your seasonal selection. For now, let’s get to the point and go through every body shape and what pants suit it best!
When you have a heavier upper body, that means that you have an apple-shaped or an oval-shaped figure. To balance out your broad shoulders and bigger bust line, choose flared bottoms and palazzos paired with upper waist belt if necessary.
You know that your body is hourglass shaped when the top and bottom parts of your body are perfectly balanced and your waist is well-defined. Since your curves are simply to die for, opt for figure-hugging styles and steer away from loose ones in order to highlight this great feature of yours. Well, you certainly don’t want to kill your looks!
If the lower part of your body is bigger than the upper part, this means that you have a pear-shaped figure. Since it’s always about balance, wide-legged pants with a ruffled or a crop top are a great match for you. This is not all, as you can also create the illusion of an hourglass figure by pairing a pair of skinny jeans with a loose top.
When your body is balanced from your shoulders to your hips, it is considered rectangular-shaped. So, in order to add shape to your body, you can either opt for pants with oversized back pockets or hip details to add fullness to your bottom, or simply go for bootcut styles.
Your body has an inverted triangle shape when your shoulders are much broader than your hips. In terms of pants, you can either opt for straight cuts or skinny ones, as long as you make sure to avoid layering.
Now, all that’s left for you is to plan your shopping spree and make the right choices!
