If You Want To Lengthen Your Legs


-Choose ones that are high-waisted: It creates the illusion of a longer lower half, as does tucking in your top.
-Since these are wide through the leg, they should have a snug cuff that’s a few inches long to give definition to your calves.

If You Want To Downplay Your Hips


-Pick a boot-cut pair: They’ll balance out any wideness in the hips.
-Be sure the pockets are placed on the front (rather than the side) to avoid bulk.

- Go for a flat-front, slightly boyish cut: This will create a nice straight line all the way down, which streamlines legs.
- The hem should fit roomily on your lower calves: It will make ankles appear thinner by comparison.
