The Importance of Pants in Every Wardrobe
Rachel Jones - June 4, 2023

An important part of every outfit is making sure that it blends together seamlessly. To ensure that, the bottom half of your body should be kept in mind. There are many advantages and disadvantages to choosing a specific article of clothing versus choosing another one. One of them is the idea of comfort.

Where you’re going largely determines how you’ll be dressing. If you’re going out to the beach with friends and will be wearing a swimsuit underneath your clothes, you wouldn’t gravitate towards wearing jeans, especially tight ones. A smarter choice would either be a comfortable pair of shorts, or even better, a dress. Choosing the right clothes will shape your experience that day, making sure that you’re not unnecessarily inconvenienced by a situation you could have easily avoided.

Also, your existing body shape and how you want to frame it also matters. If you have a wider body shape, with more weight around your thighs and upper body, and you want to create an hourglass shape, wearing loose trousers, or maybe mom jeans, could help create a dip specifically in your waist. If you have more of a straight body shape that doesn’t have any significant curves, you could wear something like wide leg jeans to create a curve in your waist, because they would cinch in at the waist and then flow out. However, if you want to accentuate your already existing features, then you might want to go for straight jeans that highlight the lack of curves.

Another thing to keep in mind is how your clothes influence how tall you look. For example, if you’re naturally shorter, wearing high-waisted jeans is preferred since they give the illusion of a shorter torso and longer legs. The shape also matters a lot, as loose pants can make it look like your legs are of a similar shape width from top to bottom, which also makes you look taller.
