If You Want To Lengthen Your Legs

-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.

- The hem should fit roomily on your lower calves: It will make ankles appear thinner by comparison.
