Cropped pants are a great alternative to shorts - which can be worn for chilly nights, dressy casual occasions, or if you just hate baring your legs in shorts.

I completely agree with those who think capris make them look frumpy, but trust me it's really all in what hem shape and length you choose and not least, HOW you wear it.

A minimum list for both pants and skirt-gals consists of basic pants styles such as dress pants.

Dress pants complement shirts and blouses, and can even double your closet's outfit combinations with a flair of sophistication. They also keep you covered all-year around, day to night, for whatever occasion that may come up.

To help you figure out what you want and looks flattering on you - you need a basic knowledge in your body shape and problem areas. This cuts the time in half when trying to find the perfect pair. Knowing your body measurements are also important to find your pants size as sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Also make sure that you buy them in versatile colors - for example black, beige and white. These are neutrals that go with everything and don't draw attention away from your top.
