Pants have been a part of fashion for decades. The wide array of pant styles available mean you have something for every occasion. They also come in a myriad of cuts to compliment different body types. Indeed, there is not much not to love about pants.

If you consider yourself a fashionista, how many pants can you name? Test your pant-knowledge against this list.

1. Slimming pants

The timeless slimming pants help cinch the waist and body to give a leaner, firmer, shapelier silhouette. These are popular with women looking for the “tummy-tuck” effect without going under the knife.

2. Cargo pants

These are pants with one or more pockets on the sides of the pants’ legs. These were once relegated to nature trails and other off-the-road adventures. Today, these are styled in different ways, including being paired with heels for a glam look.

3. Jeans and Denim

The popularity of these is unlikely to wane anytime soon. These are available in different washes, colors, and styles. You can get them in a cut suitable for the office, and you can have them rugged for casual weekends out.

The versatility of these has earned them a place in most closets.

4. Dress Pants

These are a staple for women in professions that call for formal office wear. Dress pants or suit pants have a zipper or buttons at the front or side and might be part of a suit or bought as individual pieces.

You can accessorize them in different ways to transition from day to night.

5. Bell Bottoms

These are pants that fit snugly at the hips and knees and then bell-out at the shins towards the ankles. Bell-bottoms have been extremely resilient, going in and out of fashion over the decades.

Fashionistas have it that they might be on their way back in.

6. Leggings

Leggings are tight-fitting pants made from Lycra, cotton, or denim. Most have heavy cotton and spandex. The spandex helps bring out the silhouette, while the cotton makes the leggings breathable.

Leggings are super comfortable and great for working out, traveling, chores, shopping, and so on.

7. Palazzo Pants

A good pair of palazzos give a timeless, classic look. These have an intimate fit at the waist, flair out from the hip down, and are widest from the shins downwards.

You can hardly miss good palazzo pants as they come in different prints, colors, fabrics, and designs.

8. Straight Pants

Straight pants are universally flattering, always in style pants. These pants are tailored in a close fit, and the legs fall straight from the hips to the ankle.

There you have it!! This is a snapshot of some of the most popular pants we have around. How many of these do you have in your closet?
