Pants That Reign Supreme

October 17, 2012

For years, fashion designer Alvin Valley has attracted a cult-following which includes celebs Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz. Dubbed as, the King of Pants, Valley has recently launched a new website that includes a collection of 36 perfect pant fit options for fashionistas everywhere to purchase.

Perhaps you’re wondering if shopping for the ‘perfect’ pair of pants can actually be done online. So in anticipation of that question, I asked how one would go about fulfilling their style mission of finding the pants of their dreams on Finding the right style for your size can be done by using the Styleguide, which allows shoppers to search by feature, such as pleats, cropped, etc.

Wondering what pants styles Alvin Valley has available for your body shape?  Here are suggestions of styles for 5 common body shapes:

Petite Shapes: A lower rise pant is the most flattering on a smaller figure.

Short and Curvy Shapes: Create the illusion of long, lean legs with a vertical stripe on the side of the legs.

Tall and Thin Shapes: Highlight mile long legs with a high-waisted pant, which also minimizes a long torso.

Tall and Curvy Shapes: It’s all about proportion! Try a skinny cropped pant with either a long jacket or a loose blouse and cinch it at the waist.

To Conceal A Stomach: A mid-rise, flat front pant is flattering.
