Basic black pants are easy to take for granted, they are there when you need them and they go with just about everything in your closet. A well-fitted pair showcases a woman's finest curves and makes your legs look long and elegant. Finding a pair that fits the waist, derriere, hips and thighs just the way you want can take patience and determination. At One Brilliant we are style experts when it comes to the perfect black pant. A good guideline is to own at least two pairs of black pants in different fits, such as a classic boot-cut version and a wide-leg version. These two options will pair nicely with a variety of jacket cuts and tops.
If you want to find a pair of black pants that will flatter your figure focus on the fit and style of the pant.
If you are curvy, classic flat-front and boot-cut pants that sit at or right below your natural waist are very flattering. A pant with a slight flare, like the Joseph Ribkoff Zipper Pant ($128, pictured above) will add length.

A slight flare can help balance your silhouette as well. A well-tailored, flat-front or single-pleat pant with wider legs that allows enough movement through the hips and thighs will hide a larger bottom. One of our favorite black pants is the Lyssé Wide Leg Pant ($128.00 available at One Brilliant). This hi-waist and soft stretch lining, delivers the right amount of support & fit. The fabric is extremely comfortable and holds its shape.
If you are petite look for straight-leg pants that hits below the ankle. One of the most flattering fit pants is from Sympli, their conscientious and dedicated approach to fit results in an impeccably flattering and comfortable pant. One of our favorites is the slim zipper pant and the Diva Button Legging both available at One Brilliant. Legging $98.00 (pictured below).
