It can be both difficult and frustrating to find the perfect pair of pants with the right cut that flatters your body type and height. It’s a personal experience that looks different for everyone. However, with this guide on the various types of pant fits and cuts, you’ll be one step closer to narrowing down the perfect pants style for yourself.


A popular choice among all age groups, bootcut pants are more tapered than other flared out pant styles. A proper pair of bootcut pants will be fitted until it hits the knees before opening outwards slightly once it moves past your calves. Bootcut bottoms look flattering on all body types.

Flared Cut

As 90s’ fashion makes its comeback, the popularity of flared cut pants rise with it. This style falls between bootcut bottoms and bell bottoms, hitting around the ankle or lower. This pant cut is best suited for taller or curvier figures with body types that fall under the pear or round categories. Flared pants have the effect of making petite individuals look shorter.

Cropped Cut

Whether it’s just above the ankle or up to your calves to present as capris pants, cropped bottoms can keep you cooler in the summer while also showing off your stylish footwear. Usually cut from straight legged pants, cropped bottoms are best suited for petite individuals with an hourglass figure, or people with slim legs.

Skinny Cut

A highly sought after pant cut, skinny bottoms hug the lower body to create a slimming effect. Available in low to high rise waist cuts, skinny pants are known for being somewhat stretchable to better hug your body. This cut is best suited for petite hourglass figures.

Cigarette Cut

Similar to skinny cut pants, cigarette pants aren’t full length, hitting just above the shin for a proper fit. Chic and stylish this season, this pant cut hugs the legs and flatters all the right areas. It’s best suited for petite individuals with an hourglass shape or someone with slimmer legs.

Straight Leg

Straight legged pants are perfect for individuals who want a snug pair of bottoms but can’t pull off the look of skinny jeans. Think of it as a combination of skinny fit and bootcut pant. Usually cut around the ankles, straight legged pants are suitable for all body types.
