Best Work Pants for Your Body
...choose a pant with a hem that just barely skims the floor. It'll create the illusion of longer legs without overwhelming you in fabric. Labels that offer petite sizing—like these, with a 30" inseam instead of 33.5"—are probably the easiest way to do this.
...opt for pants that play up your legs. With their slightly shiny fabric, this pair will draw the light to your legs and highlight your body's slimmer half.
...look for pants with slightly flared legs, which help balance out a wider bottom half. Or go for high-waisted pants that emphasize your natural waist. Or better yet: find a pair that has both attributes, like these.
...try a paperbag-waist pair. These will keep the focus on your front, while the pronounced back pockets slim your butt.
...choose cropped pants. Especially when paired with ankle-strap heels, they'll break up your uber-long legs and help balance your proportions.
...opt for something with a bit of detailing at the sides, like eye-catching zippers or exaggerated pockets. They'll instantly create the illusion of hips on a boxy, athletic figure.
...disguise your rear with slouchy, softly draped slacks.
