The way a woman dresses says a lot about her. No wonder we women are always blamed for taking too long while shopping. Owing to the fact that we have tons of styles and designs to choose from, especially when it comes to buying PANTS! There’s nothing that you can limit yourself to, like the men on the other hand have to. It feels like a buffet dinner where you’re almost full with the starters but itch to gallop everything till the dessert!
One should always intent on making the right impression with your pants! But the wrong kind of pants can take you from a diva to a disaster. Thus, finding the best pants for your body type can be a nerve racking experience. Here’s all about owning a variety of pant patterns in your closet.
For most girls like me, everyday is a Denim day! It is a piece of clothing that defines my entire closet and my life.
Be it a Denim Shirt or a Jacket or Jeans, its quintessential for all occasions. We are so used to wearing jeans, that we cannot live without them!

- LEGGINGS or YOGA PANTS
Apart from being a Jeans lover, I have had days where I just feel like wearing yoga pants to work to be comfortable!! Yoga pants have a look and feel of a legging with a slight difference in their fabric thickness. They are slightly lighter than those of leggings! You can style these pants with Tunics or a Kurti. For work it’s safe to wear a longer top to avoid unwanted attentions!
Whether you are meeting the girls for a leisurely brunch or going for a summer outing, these pants are a popular choice. I would suggest you to have a bunch of them in Blacks, Pastels and Solid colors so that you have a lot of choice to pair them with. They were very popular in the 70’s and in the early 2000’s and they’re now making a huge comeback. Since they create the illusion of smaller hips and elongate the legs. Wear them very long, almost covering your toes, to create a lengthening effect.
- BAGGY PANTS
Who said one can’t slay in baggy pants? Choosing a basic color always works if you’re not experimental as one can never go wrong with black and whites or denim. Pair it with your simple tee for a casual look or a formal shirt if you’re planning to go for an office wear look. It all depends on you how well one carry it – be confident and nothing’s stopping you!
- FORMAL PANTS
The basic trouser that is also called as workplace pants. This looks best when paired with a shirt, blazer, and a decent pair of bellies. You can also opt for a formal top instead! I’m totally in love with these pants as they look super trendy and way too classy when it comes to office wear. If elegance is what your looks are all about you’ve got to have these pants in your wardrobe.
- TRACK PANTS
Back in my teenage days I owned more track pants than any other pants. Thanks to my Mom, who was my stylist then, which helped my legs breath while I was growing up! It was my all-rounder clothing, be it my tuition, dance class, or a supermarket visit, track pants were my savior! Now, it’s a look that you can go from the gym all the way to a slumber party or even a pizza night with your gang. So ladies, whether you are in your 20s, 30s, or even 40s or 50s, track pants are a must!!
- BOOTCUT PANTS
If you’re wondering where the term BOOTCUT comes from, it comes from the fact that the slight flare at the bottom of the pants leaves a comfortable amount of room to wear boots! These have become another basic style of pants. Also, famously called as bell bottom pants. They are a very chic style of trouser.
- CIGARETTE PANTS
These are the pants which are extremely popular among women; they are straight fit pants which are extremely narrow along with a skin fit feel. They can be worn almost everywhere whether at office, college, or a casual outings. You can pair it up with a T-shirt and sneakers for an extremely cool casual look this summer. It’s one of those pants for women that you can’t miss out on.
