Classic black pants are a must-have. My figure isn’t well-suited to wearing skinny trousers, so I prefer wider cuts like these straight leg pants. I also found these Halogen pants in a heavier fabric with a diamond-weave pattern.
If you’re pear shaped or you want to give your hips and thighs a more slender look, don’t be afraid to buy a wider-leg pant, like a flare or bootcut. Try these Anne Klein flare leg pants or these mid-rise, wider leg trousers from T Tahari. Both pairs are under-$100.
