The 70’s high-waisted pants are back in style for fall/winter 2010-2011. This type of pants are the perfect choice for almost everyone, regardless their body shape, creating the illusion of height. Moreover, if they are flare, they will slender your silhouette. High-waisted flared pants have the biggest advantage of elongating your legs and therefore making you look taller. Wear them with a tight-fitting blouse, a woolen vest and comfortable ankle boots.

High-waisted flared pants are so versatile and have a double effect. First of all, they are ideal for women who want to emphasize their curves. Then, a pair of flared pants with a high-waist will help girls with a boyish figure to give the impression of a curvier, hourglass silhouette. If you want to camouflage bigger hips, choose this type of pants, but with bigger pockets in the back or smaller ones in the front in order to draw the attention from the size of your hips. Remember to add a belt that emphasizes the waist in a very feminine way.

This season, pants became a little shorter. The ankle length pants are extremely popular for fall/winter 2010-2011 coming in so many different styles and shapes. They are mostly flattering for tall women. For a sporty look, you can wear them with a loose t-shirt and a leather vest or jacket. For a casual, daytime look, matching a pair of ankle length pants with ballet flats or Oxford shoes represents a stylish, yet very comfortable choice. If you want to add a special touch to your outfit, go for a pair of socks and loafers.

As we have said before, ankle length pants should be a smart choice for thin women with longer legs. Otherwise, you’ll look rather strange as they can be totally unflattering, especially if one doesn’t know how to match them. Still, if you want to wear them, try to stick to the skinny, tight-fitting style and wear them with high heels. Therefore, pay a lot of attention when choosing pants that are cropped to the ankle as you can turn into a total fashion disaster and always try to go for longer or shorter versions based on your body shape.
