Straight leg
Simple, straight-cut trousers that hit about four inches above the ankle are the easiest to pull off. Counter their boyish proportion by wearing something long and lean on top.
Fitted leg
For a sexier feel, pick pants that hit just above the ankle and are fitted through the entire leg—think of them as a glamorous version of leggings. Keep the silhouette sleek with a simple jacket and high heels.
Slouchy leg
A slouchy cut is cool, in a louche, undone way. Look for a snug waistband—it'll give your body definition—and wear them with a thin, tucked-in blouse. Platform heels add elegance.
