Your Perfect Pants: The Best Style for Your Body Shape

By Lindsay Tapscott

The arrival of spring is the perfect time to refresh your wardrobes with new, of-the-moment styles to build new looks that say “new season, new me.” The season for spring shopping is here, and it’s time to fill your closet with crisp T-shirts, light layers, and the best pairs of pants to take you into these next few transitional months in great style. 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 buying 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

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 Bamboo Wide Leg Crop Pant:

The Bamboo Wide Leg Crop Pant is arguably the comfiest pant in our collection: its wide yoke waistband sits effortlessly on your hips, and the shorter inseam and wide hem means plenty of freedom to move. Made from our high-quality bamboo fabric that’s super-soft and moisture-resistant, it’s the perfect pant to either lounge around or run errands in and look chic while doing it. 

Wear It With: 

A soft, oh-so-comfortable staple you’ll wear again and again, our Bamboo Crewneck T-shirt features a boxy cut and straight hem, for a classic look you can wear with anything.

A sleeveless top that’s relaxed in fit with a round hem and draped finish. 

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 shortly than midi length and ideal with shorter tops. 

Wear It With:

The slim fit and flattering V neckline of this top creates a flattering line when worn with a wide-leg pant. 

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 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:

This classic layering piece pulls your outfit together for a look that says casual yet polished, and makes for a great layer on chillier days and nights.

Shop our Straight Leg Crop Pant:

A sleek 3/4-length hem makes this pant perfect for spring while the wide yoke waistband and side pockets make it comfortable all day long. 

Wear It With: 

With its classic scoop neckline and flattering side slits, this everyday staple works under a cardigan or just on its own. 

Toss this super-soft zip-up hoodie on over a T-shirt or tank top for added warmth to your look.   

NARROW

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 Lantern Pant:

Our Narrow Lantern Pant features a slimmer fit and an ankle length, and works perfectly with cropped tops, making it ideal for warmer weather.

Wear It With: 

An elegant elbow-length dolman sleeve and a boxy rounded hem create a breezy, comfortable look for day or night. 

An essential layering piece, this cardigan features long raglan sleeves for added cozy and inseam pockets for added convenience. 

SKINNY

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 a 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. New for spring: they’re available in classic navy. 

Wear It With:

A classic long-length sleeveless top with a high boat neckline and flattering side slits, this versatile piece can be worn with anything.

This fit-and-flare tunic drapes elegantly across the body, and its 3/4-length sleeves, high neckline and side pockets make it the perfect top for any time of day.
