Your Perfect Pants: The Best Style for Your Body Shape

By Lindsay Tapscott

If summer is for wearing as little clothing as possible (miss you, sun!), fall is for showing off all of the things you can do with your clothing. It’s the season for fall outfits, and it’s time to break out your cozy knits, wrap yourself in a chunky scarf and pull out your best pairs of pants for looks that will take you well into winter, with little to no effort required. In particular with women’s pants, there are so many styles to choose from right now: wide-leg, straight, narrow, skinny. But what if you’re not sure which style is best for your body shape?

At Sympli, we believe in creating wardrobe staples that last for longer than one season. Investing in high-quality pieces you’ll want to wear again and again is a more sustainable way to shop and it aligns perfectly with the highly personal experience of shopping for pants––it’s less trend-driven and more rooted in finding the perfect style that suits your shape year-round. Plus, what’s a more fashionable feeling than rejuvenating your day-to-day look with a fresh style? So if you’re on the hunt for women’s pants that flatter your figure (and looking for tips on what to pair with them), read on.

Wide-leg

Pocket Ankle Pant & Whisper Boxy Shirt

Luckily for all of us, anyone can wear a wide-leg pant––it all depends on how you style it. Tall women with long frames can do almost anything with a wide leg, while those who are more petite should pair it with a cropped or tucked-in top to elongate the body. Curvier women should opt for something fitted on top to accentuate the waist and highlight their hourglass figures.

Shop our Angle Seam Lantern Pant:

The Angle Seam Lantern Pant features a yoke waistband which supports your midsection and hips comfortably, casual enough for running errands in and comfortable enough to wear all day.

Wear It With: 

The Nu Cinch Top: Its rounded hem sits slightly higher than our classic tops while the dolman sleeve elevates an everyday look.

The Turtle Neck Gathered Sleeve Top: The slim fit makes this top perfect for tucking in. Add our Whisper Scarf as an accent piece and voilà: a polished and comfortable evening outfit.

Shop our Rapt Pant:

The Rapt Pant’s soft chandelier layering makes it a statement pant for day or night.

Wear It With:

The Whisper Kabuki Sleeve Cardigan: A statement pant deserves a topper to match and this flowing piece in sheer Georgette fabric makes for a top-to-toe look that’s effortlessly eye-catching.

Deep V Top: Our Deep V Top features side slits that are brought forward for a flattering fit. It has a relaxed fit and is in our classic length. 

Shop our French Terry Wide Leg Pant:

The perfect lounge pant. It has a comfy elastic waist, patch pockets and breezy wide legs. It is slightly shorter than midi length and ideal with shorter tops. 

Wear It With: 

The Bamboo V-Neck: Our Bamboo V-Neck is a go-to cozy style. It features a dolman long sleeve with a V-neck and is boxy and oversized in fit with a soft rounded hem.

 French Terry Pullover: This style features a boxy relaxed fit and a banded crew neck. It has interesting seams and angled slits on the sides. 

Straight 

Straight Leg Pant & Key Cardigan Long & Go To Tank

Straight-leg pants are particularly flattering on pear-, apple- and athletic-shaped women, and those with wider shoulders than hips (think an inverted triangle), as the wider leg opening helps balance out the body. They’re narrower than the wide-leg but more laid-back than a skinny pant.

Shop our Straight Leg Pant:

The Straight Leg Pant features a double-layer front for extra coverage and sleek side pockets.

Wear It With:

The Everyday Cardigan: This classic layering piece pulls your outfit together for a look that says casual yet polished.

The Wide Cuff Raglan Sleeve Top: This cowl-neck piece with wide-bracelet length cuffs dresses up the Straight Leg Pant for a look that’s nice yet not overdone.

Shop our Pocket Ankle Pant: Figure-hugging with double patch pockets, this relaxed ankle-length pant is a pull-on-and-go staple. 

Wear It With:

The Whisper Boxy Shirt: This boxy, oversized easy shirt in all over georgette features a button up front and soft hem.

The Trapeze Top: This style has an a-line shape with 3/4 sleeves and a high boat neckline.

Narrow

Narrow Pant Midi & Motion Step Hem Tunic

Slightly more tapered than the straight-leg pant, the narrow pant looks great on those with curvier figures as it elongates the body.

Shop our Narrow Pant Midi:

This tailored pant slims the leg, features a foldover waistband, and comes in midi and long lengths, so it works for all heights.

Wear It With (almost anything!):

The Shawl Collar Pocket Cardigan: A rounded hem, back overlay and a ruched waist gives this timeless cardigan a unique update.

The Go To Classic T Relax: A simple staple that goes with anything, this relaxed, long-sleeve T-shirt features a rounded hem and side slits.

Skinny

Zest Yoke Legging & Zest Pleat Neck Tunic

Like the wide-leg, skinny pants or leggings look great on all body types––it’s simply all in the styling. Tall women can wear them under a tunic or dress while shorter women look great in a pair of leggings tucked into boots (preferably in the same colour as the leggings to create a longer visual line). Hourglass or pear-shaped figures should opt for a tunic that covers the hips and rear.

Shop our Nu Yoke Legging:

The Nu Yoke Legging comes in ankle and long lengths and features a snug waistband for extra comfort.

Wear It With:

The Zest Boxy Tunic: Oversized and ohhhhh-so-cozy, our Zest Boxy Tunic drapes in all the right places and makes for the perfect transitional topper.

The Halo Angle Tunic: Dressier than our Zest Boxy Tunic, the Halo Angle Tunic flatters the figure with an asymmetrical hemline, a slimming boatneck and gunmetal grommet detail. Ideal for an evening look.
