Tuxedo Pants for Every Shape
Find the perfect pair of these just-formal-enough-for-holiday-gatherings trousers.
If You Have An Hourglass Figure
Choose a straight (not tapered) style or a boot leg to balance curves. Accentuate the waist with a cummerbund or a sash. “If
you lose definition of the waist, you’ll look shapeless,” says Kendall Farr, a New York–based stylist and the author of Style Evolution ($22.50, amazon.com).
To try: A style designed with a pleated satin cummerbund to beautifully accentuate the waistline.
Wear them with: A romantic silk blouse, a white button-down, or a sleeveless shell. All the pieces should be tucked in so as not to cover up the ornate waistband.
