Pear Body Type

If your hips and thighs are broader than your shoulders but you have a defined waist, you’re pear-shaped. You may find that pants are hard to fit and that skirts are an easier option. To flatter your curves, look for shapes that have a little boot-cut or flare to balance your hips. Wear your pants in a darker color teamed with a lighter colored or patterned top to draw attention upwards.  A wide waistband can be great to help you get a better fit.

Hourglass Body Type

If your shoulders and hips are balanced and you have a defined waist, you’re hourglass. Since you got that ideal body type, almost every pant like straight, boot-cut, or a little flare all suit. However, you might want to go for figure hugging or curve-skimming pants over baggy boyfriend styles. Styles with wide waistbands will make fitting easier, and you may find that you have to have the waist on trousers taken in.

Straight Body Type

If you are straight and may describe your shape as boyish, where you have similar width shoulders to hips but don’t have a defined waist, you’re straight shaped. To balance your frame, create some curves with pleats at the waist and hips, or hip detail. Like fashion blogger Nina Suess, you may go for a crop top teamed with harem pants to create a great womanly curve. You may also wear light or patterned trousers if you like them. Also, you may find fabrics with stretch fit you better as if you have a flat bottom you will get sagging fabric under the bottom.

Inverted Triangle Body Type

If you have broader shoulders than hips, you’re an inverted triangle. You can balance your shoulders with a wide leg shape and add in hip detail if you want to make them look more curvaceous. Like fashion blogger Noor de Groot, you may simply opt for a skinny fit of printed pants and a plain top that will do the tricks for you.

Apple Body Type

If your tummy protrudes and is the widest feature on your upper body, you’re an apple shape. To balance your frame, think of slim leg styles that you can wear them with longer tunic tops without being overwhelmed by fabric. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, you may resort to a boxy blouse or a top that floats away from your body teamed with flared pants. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to pick the most flattering pair of pants for your body type.
