You then transition to a pair of fitted tweed trousers paired with a cable-knit sweater for a day at the office and pull on a pair of figure-hugging leggings with a fitted top for a night on the town. No matter your look, the right pair of pants can take it to the next level.

With the rainbow of denim available and the variety of cuts possible in slacks, any silhouette can be achieved with the right pair of pants. Consider a normal day.

You then transition to a pair of fitted tweed trousers paired with a cable-knit sweater for a day at the office and pull on a pair of figure-hugging leggings with a fitted top for a night on the town. No matter your look, the right pair of pants can take it to the next level.

History

We're encouraged to keep our pants on, told we all put our pants on the same way and encouraged to buy a big girl or boy pair on bad days. However, pants have not always been so popular. The ancient Romans actually considered the garment barbaric and thought tunics were the ultimate status symbols. These days we pair most tunics with pants.

The oldest known pair of pants are believed to be up to 3,300 years old and were discovered in China within the past decade. Two men excavated from a tomb were wearing the garments which historians believed were developed for freer movement while horseback riding.

For many centuries, trousers remained tied to equestrian activities before becoming a more common military garment. By the Middle Ages, the military trouser started to spill over to everyday wear. Over the next few hundred years, pants tightened to leggings, loosened to billowing breeches and tightened again before developing a more modern shape with a loose fit and button fly in the 1800s.

According to historians, Queen Victoria’s oldest son and the future King Edward VII of England popularized the modern trouser with a hemmed cuff and crease while serving as the Prince of Wales in the 19th century.

Pant Styles

Twenty-first century fashion still embraces the trouser with a button fly. However, many more options are part of the style mix, and we offer all the designs your closet needs. From drawstring palazzo pants to a flared remixed from the 1970s, we have the pants you need to stay on trend. Prepare to embrace your inner Edward VII.

Trousers

For several years, trousers seemed doomed to an ill-fitted life at mall department stores, but newer brands such as The Row and Victoria Beckham revitalized the garments in a moderate price range. A pair of tapered trousers provides a slim silhouette well-matched with a blazer and silk tank while a wider leg work pant begs for a fitted blouse.

Leggings

Modern-day leggings greatly resemble men’s pants of old and are still dressed up the same way. For a classic leggings look, pair a pair with an oversized shirt or a tunic. When you feel like layering, throw on a bold patterned legging with your favorite dress and enjoy a cozy night on the town.

Palazzo Pants

A '70s trend that has circled back around, palazzo pants recalled the early days of the wide-legged women’s trousers popular during the Golden Days of Hollywood in the 1930s. A proper palazzo pant flares evenly from the waistline to the ankle to create the illusion of a maxi skirt. Culottes are a sister garment that flare to the knee. Both are best paired with a fitted shirt to avoid overshadowing the generous cut of the pants.

Joggers

Joggers are created specifically for running and differ from their cousin, the sweatpant, in terms of fabric thickness and cuff construction. Joggers are thinner and lightweight and feature a looser cuff for ease of movement.

Cargo Pants

The utility pant of choice for the military and construction workers, cargo pants provide easy access to a variety of items through a series of pockets. True cargos feature a minimum of two side pockets — typically with a fastening flap — above the knee. Due to their rugged appearance, a T-shirt or tank pairs well over the pants. For a layered grunge look, add a flannel shirt. When you buy a high-fashion pair of cargos, opt for a more sophisticated top, such as a billowy, puffed-sleeve blouse, to create a runway ready contrast.

Chinos

Chinos are a great option when you work in a casual environment but don’t want to go full denim. Made of a lighter-weight twill material, chinos are similar to khakis but feature concealed stitching that lends a more sophisticated look. Due to the versatility of chinos and the myriad colors the pants come in, any type of shirt pairing will work. For the office, consider adding a loose blazer in a contrasting color to nail the best-dressed award.

Sweatpants

The classic sweatpant is a heavy cotton or polyester blend fabric with an elastic waist typically controlled by a drawstring. They also feature a fitted cuff at the hem. When you need to lounge in comfort for the day, opt for a fitted sweatpant. However, avoid pairing it with a coordinating jacket or shirt unless your plan is to dress as a child of the 1980s. Modern options from brands like Dior and Kenzo are designed to keep you comfy and polished looking, so aim high for your next casual weekend.

Pant Materials

Corduroy Pants

Corduroy waxes and wanes in popularity with peaks during throwback fashion years. The distinctive cord pattern is instantly recognizable whether fashioned into a straight-leg or flared pant. Corduroy gets high marks for comfort and warmth in cooler climates, and is easily mixed and matched with other textiles. Given the fabric’s retro-fab vibes, consider pairing cords with a mod-print shirt or a graphic tee. Add a chunky boot for all the ‘70s feels.

Silk Pants

Flowing silk pants are a breath of fresh air in the warm weather months. Palazzo pants and wide-leg trousers are often crafted from the breezy material and look fetching when paired with a silk shirt or camisole and a cropped jacket. Heavier weight silk is routinely made into straight-leg trousers in bold colors and prints that can go from the boardroom to the dance floor with ease. A pair of subtle flats or dainty booties can also make the work to party transition with you.

Tweed Pants

For years, tweed was the go-to fabric for depictions of middle-aged academics and British people taking a walk on TV despite its continual appearance on the catwalk for Chanel. Tweed pants regularly feature herringbone or checked patterns and are extremely durable. Many contemporary garments now nod to classic Chanel looks while remixing the traditional skirt as a pant. Tweed pants come in all cuts and sizes and are easily dressed up or down, making them a versatile piece for the wardrobe.

Cotton Pants

Cotton pants offer the maximum in breathability and hot weather comfort, and the fabric is a core piece of many blends. Choose a cotton pant in your favorite color or print for the dog days of summer and pair it with a loose blouse for the most comfortable outfit possible.

Wool Pants

Wool is a favored material due to its durability and its ability to be reworn in between washes with minimal odor. Wool fabric is sold in varying weights, so you can opt for a cool pair of wool pants in the summer or a thicker pair for winter. Color options are also limitless when it comes to wool blends. Mix and match your favorite jewel tones and pastels throughout the year to keep this natural fabric in play in your wardrobe.

Leather Pants

Leather is hit or miss for a pant. As in, you should only wear it if you can miss out on chafing. When you can pull off leather without worry, a sexy moto jacket can create a chic biker look while pairing a favorite silk blouse will add a textile contrast of note. Opt for your favorite studded booties for a club look or a pair of canvas sneakers to bring the ensemble down a notch.

Linen Pants

Linen pants are noted for their comfort and breathability in hot weather, but they also require heavy maintenance. If you are down for ironing or regular dry-cleaning, a crisp linen ensemble is a good investment. Double-down for the office with a matching blazer and pant set. Pair it with a crisp camisole or blouse and a classic pump to nail suiting 101.

Velvet Pants

The feel of velvet is unmistakable and wearing a pair of pants crafted from the material is a luxurious experience. However, the wrong cut can make for a less than fabulous fashion moment. Opt for dramatic cuts when possible and avoid leaving the house in velvet lounge pants.

Denim Pants

Denim is everything in the pants world. From skinny denim trousers and leggings, the material is extremely versatile and a favorite of fashionistas and the “I had to get dressed today” crew alike. It can be paired with boots, sneakers, heels or loafers and can be dressed up or down with any shirt. Pick your favorite cut and get your hems tailored when necessary to look your best in this ubiquitous fabric.

Pant Leg Styles

Wide-Leg Pants

When it comes to pants, wide-leg is an ambiguous term. In some instances, it simply means the pants aren’t fitted or tapered and provide more room for your legs. For other designs, it means a leg crafted to create a specific silhouette. The latter designs typically lean toward a palazzo shape but with more form and are often paired with either fitted tops or billowing blouses to make a fashion statement.

Fitted Pants

Much like a skinny jean, a fitted pant hugs the legs from the thigh to the ankle but with more heft than a legging. Fitted pants are often made of wool and favored for sleek looks in the office or on the go. They can easily pair with a tailored blazer or a cardigan for workplace layering and partner with a kimono or moto jacket and a pair of booties for a night on the town.

Tapered Pants

A tapered pant offers more room through the thighs than a fitted pant but gradually decrease in size to the ankle. To make the look work, the ankle opening should not be so small that it actually hugs the joint. In office-trouser land, the tapered pant is typically pleated or pre-creased with a high waist.

Flared Pants

Flared pants are a tamer version of the classic bell-bottom. A classic flare fits snugly to the knee before flaring gently out on the way to the angle. A flare is subtle — though the pants may not be — and never ventures into full bell territory. Flares are most popular in denim but can be seen in wool and other heavier fabrics.

Straight Pants

A straight-leg pant can have a wide or skinny leg depending on the cut. Straight legs follow a single line from the thigh to the hem. When the leg is snug, it is a skinny straight-leg while a leg wider than the thigh is a wide-leg straight pant. A straight leg fits very similar to a bootcut and is easily dressed up or down.

Bootcut Pants

Bootcut pants have a slightly more tapered thigh than a straight-leg but feature a roomy cut through the calves, making them perfect for pairing with a favorite tall boot or cowboy boot. Add a peasant blouse or a cardigan to create the perfect prairie chic look.

Pant Length

Ankle-Length Pants

Fitted ankle-length pants are a popular alternative to leggings and a suitable replacement in the workplace. The length isn’t suited to cooler climates in the winter but is perfect for spring and summer.

Cropped Pants

A cropped pant is slightly longer than a capri pant and typically enjoys a looser fit. Socks are a no-go with the crop, so opt for a closed-toe heel, strappy sandal or dressy flat for a smart work ensemble.

Regular-Length Pants

Regular length pants hit at the top of the shoe. Ideally, any pant you buy that isn’t a specific style has an inseam with a hem that breaks in this location. If not, you can have the pants tailored for the break you prefer or roll the cuff to suit your needs.

Pant Rises

High-Rise Pants

What’s old is new again. The high-waist pant suffered for years under the label “mom jean” but has slowly regained traction as a new generation realized the benefits of cinching the waist sans shapewear. High-rise pants look equally smart with a tucked-in ribbed sweater or a T-shirt falling smoothly past the waistline.

Mid-Rise Pants

Mid-rise pants are a favorite when you don’t want to flash skin all day but still want a sexy silhouette. A good mid-rise pant falls just below the belly button and avoids hitting the natural waistline. Great for casual wear with a graphic print shirt or a favorite oversized sweater.

Pant Patterns

Solid Color Pants

Solid color pants are perfect for work. They coordinate well with many blouses and are easily worn on repeat without being noticed. Always invest in quality materials and construction when opting for a professional trouser, and it will pay off for you by providing years of wear.

Print Pants

A good print can be a good investment, but a little goes a long way. Unlike a solid pant, printed garments cannot be reworn regularly without being noticed and require planning an entire look. When your pants wardrobe is print heavy, invest in solid color shirts with minimalist detailing to up your mix and match options.

Plaid Pants

Classic work wear has kept demure plaids, such as herringbone, alive. Wool trousers for the office often feature a frequently subtle and sometimes loud plaid pattern. On the low-key side, greys and soft pops of color abound. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you can hear bagpipes playing in the background. If you favor a bold style, pair a wide plaid in a brilliant red or green with your favorite solid color blouse for a power dress day. Everyone else should keep the plaid simple and pair it with a classic button-down shirt.

Striped Pants

Pants with bold stripes are having a fashion moment, and it’s a good one. Classic pinstripes are a staple in business wear with good reason. They pair with almost anything and look sophisticated straight off the shelf. However, newer options, such as bold vertical stripes in high-waisted or belted pants are also elbowing their way to the table. The often-flowing trousers are best paired with a fitted shirt in a solid color or subtle coordinating pattern.

Metallic Pants

Metallic pants include those with a definite sheen as well as trousers in a metallic color or featuring metallic threads. Gold and silver are go-to options in the metallic range and are often paired with club-ready shiny fabrics cut loose for the dance floor or skinny leggings crafted for the gym floor. On the work end, metallic threads can add an interesting pop to fitted trousers and printed pants without being too over the top for the office.

Floral Pants

Floral pants are rarely a bad idea if paired with the proper tops. The boldest prints are typically reserved for looser fit pants, including palazzos, or workout gear. For more flowing bottoms, a fitted top is usually best to avoid different elements of your ensemble competing for attention. Florals with a solid-color base, such as navy, will help highlight your figure while louder prints with bright, large flowers may call attention to problem areas.

Pant Colors 

Black Pants

The little black dress has nothing on the classic black pant. From leggings to palazzos, black is the color of sophistication and the quintessential pairing option. Keep a lint roller handy if you have pets.

Dark Blue Pants

Dark blue, or navy, is the preferred base color for most pinstripe suits and the runner-up to black in the classic workwear color palette competition. Dark blue pants play well with both darker and lighter colors, making them perfect for wearing with a printed blouse or button-up top.

Beige Pants

Beige is a dicey pants color. Done well, it looks sophisticated and sleek, but at its worst it can make the most polished person look frumpy. Lean towards tapered beige pants or wide-leg trousers to create a deliberate silhouette. Avoid the middle ground as much as possible unless you’re a style unicorn capable of pulling off any look.

Dark Grey Pants

Speaking of unicorns. Dark grey is a trouser’s best friend. From the wide-leg pant to the straight-leg trouser, grey looks good on a variety of fabrics and will partner with most tops for a sophisticated office look or a trip to the grocery store. Whether you are in joggers or wool trousers, a sleek shade of dark grey instantly dresses up your outfit.

Light Grey Pants

Many of the more subtle plaids worn to the office feature a base color of light grey. To avoid looking frumpy in lighter greys, choose a pant with a specific cut, such as a flare, straight-leg or cigarette trouser. For summer weather, light-weight shirts in bright colors will keep you looking and feeling cool. In winter, chunky sweaters and cardigans in solid colors layer nicely over the shade.

White Pants

A crisp white pant conjures images of summer and country club frolics like nothing else. If you want to embrace a polo or golf vibe, find a pair of crops easily paired with a comfortable knit top for the best preppy look. For a sophisticated twist, look for a flowing white cotton or silk pant with a wide-leg and waistband. Add a figure-hugging shirt for instant glam.

Trends in Pants

Denim is ubiquitous, and skinny trousers are still having a moment — even as flares and true bell-bottoms make a return to the fashion scene. When the 1970s hit a full resurgence, prepare for corduroy to go big and palazzos to stay strong.

Outside of bell shapes, wide-leg pants in bold vertical patterns or with waist detailing via a wide belt are gaining steam.

Celebs in Pants

The red carpet has also welcomed its share of celebrities clad in pants. Julia Roberts wore tapered black Stella McCartney pants to the Golden Globes while Judy Greer opted for bold, black flares as part of a suit. Elsie Fisher wore a Kinser bespoke suit with red velvet vibes to the same event

Unique Options abound in Pants

Pants are a necessity, but they are also a pleasure. There is a pant to suit any style, and a trouser made for every occasion. The garment may have originally been crafted for horseback riding, but it’s a staple for everyday life in the 21st century.

Whether you are walking to the subway, running around the track, or strutting into a boardroom, there is a pair of pants, or two, or three that can help you do it better while reflecting your personality...one leg at a time.
