When it comes to shopping for flattering trousers, the first thing to do is to examine your body and evaluate which issues you want to address. If the goal is to slim down your thighs and elongate your frame, dark-washed jeans and dark-colored pants are your best options. You can also rely on subtle design elements like stripes that trick the eye to looking from top to bottom.

However, no woman is created with the same silhouette, so a slimming pair of pants for petites may not work as well for curvy ladies. If you have a small frame, you'll need a pair of trousers with a more rounded cut on the hips and falls to a tapered ankle, so peg-shaped pants are your best options. And if you've got a long torso with short gams, high-waisted straight cut trousers are for you. Meanwhile, curvy girls may opt for slightly flared trousers to balance your body shape.
