Step boldly into fall wearing one of the season’s hottest pants styles. If you’re petite or have been hitting the gym for months, you’re in luck – skin tight jeggings and skinny cargos are all the rage. If not, have no fear – wide-leg trousers and harem-style cropped pants are just as popular as their slim-fit counterparts. We’ve done the research, now feast your eyes on Fall 2010’s must-have pants styles:


The “it” pants of the year is definitely the jegging. You will love the dark wash and “I can’t believe its not jeans” look of these AG Adriano Goldschmied Denim leggings ($149).

High Waist Cropped Pants:

If you’re feeling bold, cropped, high waisted pants are this year’s answer to the harem pant. These Vince High Waist Crop Pants ($230) are a great pair to try to ease into the trend.

Skinny Cargo Pants:

Everyone from Rihanna to the Kardashian sisters are loving these J Brand ‘Houlihan’ Skinny Stretch Cotton Cargo pants ($231), and so will you.

Skinny Cords:

The new skinny jean is the skinny cord; try a cool blue pair like these 7 For All Mankind The Skinny Gummy Corduroy leggings ($149) which go with everything from brown boots to heather gray sweaters.
