When shopping for a new pair of pants the options can feel overwhelming, but you can narrow down the landscape by focusing on elements like the fabric and fit.
If you’re in a casual mood, denim jeans dominate, reaching far and wide to include styles like skinny, wide-leg, high-waisted, boyfriend and even capri. But since not all denim jeans fit the same, you’ll want to pay close attention to how they’re made. While most are cotton-based, you’ll find options that include lycra and polyurethane, which are materials that can add figure-flattering stretch.
For a more elegant look, you can upgrade your pants search to include trousers. They’re often constructed with sturdy textiles like cotton or wool, and come in solids and fun patterns, giving you a lot of opportunity to play with different combinations. When styling trousers, try tucking in a simple blouse or sweater, or drape a casual T-shirt over fitted solid pants to convey a more classic moment. Trousers, like jeans, can be worn with a multitude of shoes, from ballet flats to stilettos.
Polyvore is a great place to start when on the hunt for new pants. Denim labels like rag & bone and Levi’s are trusted and popular brands, while Banana Republic and Zara are known for manufacturing trousers that are both elegant and smart.
