Tips to choose right flare pant

There’s nothing better than a pair of flare pants to accentuate your curves or give your legs that long and lean appearance. It’s no wonder how quickly these have become a hot favorite among most women – across all age groups and body types.

Here are few tips to choose the right flare pant according to your body type.

Pear Shape

Pear shaped women usually are heavy on their hips, thighs, and rear. For this body type, pants with wider flares or bell-bottoms are an ideal choice. If you have a pear shaped body type, look for styles that are form-fitting at the butt, thighs and all the way down to the middle of your knees and longer flares that almost cover your shoes. This will help give you a leaner and elongated appearance.

Apple Shape

Women with this frame tend be heavy at the top and narrow from the waist down. If you have an apple shape, you need to opt for fuller flares to balance out your narrow lower half. You should choose styles that are figure hugging at the waist to help accentuate those curves. We recommend going for wide-leg styles like bell-bottoms or palazzos to give your body a more proportional appearance and also complement those lovely long legs

Rectangle Shape

Women with a rectangular or column shape tend to have similar measurements at the bust and hips. They tend to have long legs and can beautifully carry the volume of flare pants. You can choose flares with pleated at the waist which give a more curvier look. If you have a rectangular body type, flare pants will look great on you…no matter what style you choose. So feel free to go crazy experimenting.

Hour glass shape

Women with this body type have around the same measurements at the bust and hip area with a particularly narrow waist, thereby lending the shape of an hourglass. If you have an hourglass body type, flare pants were tailor made for you. You have the perfect curves on top to balance out the flares at the bottom. Only what matters is the height. Go for a tall inseam length if you are more that 5’4” or go for a regular inseam length if you are on the shorter side.

Body Type and Balance

  • Flare pants elongate the leg which is great if you are petite. Just be sure that the width of the flare does not overwhelm your shorter frame. Look for a flare on the less-wide side or bring them to a tailor and take them in!
  • If you are short waisted (the space between your bust and hips) a high waist will land too close to the bust so instead opt for a mid-rise.
