Much like smartphones, pant legs have been steadily expanding in recent years, and we’re digging the fashion-forward (not to mention comfortable) appeal of the latest loose-fitting pairs. But finding a silhouette that’s actually flattering—when you don’t have the body of, say, Karlie Kloss—is no small feat. Fortunately, there’s a roomy shape for everyone.

high waist wide leg pants

If you’re petite, try high-waisted flares

Short gals are well aware that too much fabric can swallow them up. Look for a hip-skimming cut with a flat waistband and leg-lengthening stripes. (Better yet, make it a matching set.)

Faithfull the Brand ($85); Topshop ($85); Beltaine ($158)

tulip pants1

If you’ve got a big butt, try tulip pants

The key here is balance: You want to flatter your best asset, not feel like it’s hidden under a tablecloth. A soft crossover shape mirrors your curves while showing a little skin.

Forever21 ($35); Lost + Wander ($85); Samantha Dru ($118)

sailor pants

If you’re hippy, try structured sailor pants

Worried that all that volume is going to make you look wider than you are? Stick with a heavier-weight chino that’s slim through the hips with an A-line shape.

Capulet ($136); Sandro ($280); Apiece Apart ($295)

wide leg culotte pants

If you need help defining your waist, try belted culottes

If your lack of an hourglass shape makes you dread looking too square, go for a pair with a defined waistband and subtle pleats to create more curves.

ASOS ($40); Aqua ($68); MISA Los Angeles ($202)

side slit trousers

If you’re tall, try side slit trousers

You lucky duck: You can pretty much pull off any iteration of the trend, but for our money, the best way to show off those gams is with a floor-grazing length and flirty side slits.

Aqua ($68); BB Dakota ($98); Eileen Fisher ($238)
