The classic retro pants model remains to this day. These are straight pants, which reach the ankle. They are ideal for office work and business meetings. You can combine them with a suit jacket or coat, if it is of the same material. You can wear retro pants cut straight with a tight shirt and add braces for emphasis.
Retro pants, with medium to high waist and wide legs, will give you a comfort and elegant look. Combine it with a chiffon shirt for more chic.

The Charleston and skirt pants are introduced in the 60s and 70s of the last century. They are convenient and allow you to experiment with different styles. If you combine them with a spectacular shirt and jacket you will turn into an elegant business lady. If you wear them with a tunic and put a bag over the shoulder, you will get an original look.

Wide pants are best suited for the warm days. The most commonly used fabrics are linen, organza, silk.

Bermudas are another interesting model pants. They are also able to be combined with all kinds of shoes. Equally well, they stand in high heels and sneakers.

We must not forget the classic leather pants. This type of garment is associating with urban chic and can turn your vision, into a fascinating magnet of the others eyes.  Leather pants are inherently narrow, close fitting to the foot. In the most cases, look like a wedge, but with fitting cut trouser.

The variety of pants models is large. Choose an impressive pattern, quality fabrics and practicality.
