Are tapered trousers flattering?

If you’re wondering whether tapered trousers suit your body shape, then the simple answer is yes, tapered pants are universally flattering. Cut with a narrow leg that tapers at the ankle, tapered trousers simply skim your figure to offer a streamlined silhouette, without clinging. Often trimmed with either an elasticated waistband, self-tie belt or a paper bag waist, these key details are designed to cinch you in at the middle to accentuate your waistline. For added figure-skimming magic, the way the pants are cut gives the illusion of elongated pins, making tapered trousers a clear win-win for all shapes and sizes including petite and tall frames.


What is the difference between tapered and slim fit trousers?

The main difference between tapered and slim leg trousers is that tapered cuts fit tighter around the ankles, whereas slim fit designs offer a snugger fit all over. To explain the cut of a tapered fit, simply visualise a broader top that’s cut with a narrow leg and finished with a not too tight, yet tapered ankle. As opposed to slim fit trousers, tapered offer added comfort thanks to the slightly more looser overall fit and feel. Slim fits on the other hand offer a more form-fitting cut that offers a tighter fit on the thighs, calves and ankles.


Who can wear tapered trousers?

The great thing about tapered trousers is they suit all body shapes and sizes. Offering figure-skimming magic, but at the same time accentuating shape, tapered pants ensure a flattering fit that’s both chic yet comfortable. Petite ladies, the best thing about tapered trousers is they work to elongate your legs, thanks to their narrow leg cut, which tapers at the bottom. Curvy and tall ladies, you’ll love the elasticated and belted waist designs that work to cinch you in a middle and skim your shape to gently sculpt an envious feminine silhouette.
