Appropriate Pant Styles and Hem Lengths

Tight jeans:
Hem Style and Length: Skinny pants or jeans are slim-fitting and form-fitting from the hip to the ankle. The hem ends just around the ankle.

Best Body Shape: Women with a balanced hour class shape or long slender legs have an easy game here. But don’t worry ladies. If you have shorter or thicker legs, consider heels or ankle boots to stretch out your leg. No one should get rid of their skinny jeans because those pants are great for any occasion.

Shoe style: All shoes work with skinny jeans but to stretch your legs a bit heels or ankle boots are recommended.

Straight:
Hem Style and Length: Straight-leg pants aren’t as tight as skinnies, but they’re still slim from the hips to the calves. The only difference is that straight jeans don’t sit as close to the leg as skinny jeans. The hem should end just below the ankle to create a nice flow with the shoes.

Best Body Shape – Every body type can wear those pants. This shape is a great option if you don’t want to show off your body as much.

Shoe style: All shoes are fine, ankle boots only if they have a small shaft and the country can fit on it. You don’t want the hem to sit on the shaft.

Boot cut:
Hem Style and Length: Bootcut pants are fitted through the thighs and flare slightly from the knee to the hem. The appropriate hem length is one-fourth to one-half inch from the floor. Please note that these guidelines are measured with the shoes of your choice on your feet.

Best Body Shape: Everyone looks great in bootcut jeans, but they’re great for balancing out wide hips or a curvy upper body.

Shoe style: Pointed toe heels, ankle boots, and just about any heel work best with a boot shape because they hide your legs a bit. When shopping for bootcut pants, make sure they are ¼ to ½ inches above the floor WITH your shoes.

flares:
Hem Style and Length: Technically, flares are bootcuts with a wider flare at the legs. The same rules as above apply. Although the same rules apply, flares are a bit more extravagant. Think about whether they fit your style.

Best Body Shape – Same as Bootcut

Shoe Style: Same as Bootcut, unless the flared pants are very short, then a flat is possible because the leg is visible.

Jeans and wide leg pants:
Hem Style & Length: Wide-leg pants extend directly from the hips continuously to the bottom. Those pants must have a hem ¼ off the floor. Only the toes should be showing to create a long, graceful leg and look.

BEST BODY SHAPE – These pants work with any body type. Do not be shy. A little tip… the wider your hips, the wider the cut should be to create a good balance between your upper and lower body.

Shoe style: Heels are recommended because they stretch the leg. The wide leg can make the legs appear shorter. Wide leg cropped pants can also be worn with flat shoes if preferred.

Boyfriend Jeans:
Hem style and length: The idea behind these baggy pants is to make them look like you borrowed them from your boyfriend. They are usually cropped with a low rise.

Best Body Shape: Narrow hips go a little better with this type of cute because the low waistline tends to expand the hips visually.

Shoe style: Both flats and heels work great with boyfriend jeans. It really depends on the look you want to achieve.

The same rules apply.

Ankle pants:
Hem length: These pants should end just above or below the ankle, never right where your ankle is. The focus is directed to the thinnest part of the leg. They can be skinny, flared, boyfriend or any other cut. The idea here is length.

Best Body Shape – All car body types use this crop type. Choose a style that works best with your body.

Shoe style: Depending on the style you choose, you can wear boots, heels or flats.

Shorts:
Hem Length: These pants end anywhere between mid-calf and ankle. It is up to you which length you prefer. Keep in mind that pants should never end at the widest part of the leg. It makes your legs look bigger and shorter than they really are.

Best Body Shape – Any body type can wear these pants. The determining factor is your height. Tall people with long legs can wear a shorter top than petite people with short legs.

Shoe style: Any shoe will work with this length. It depends on the style and cut of your pants.

Keep in mind that all of the style guidelines mentioned are just suggestions and if you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing, you should, without hearing this. This blog post is for those looking for a little guidance in this area.
