19 Different Types Of Pants For Men & Women

There are many pants styles and designs. Do you know them all? These are the different types of pants:


Jeans are in every girl’s closet. They are the go-to type of pants for almost any occasion.

Not only are jeans comfortable but they are also fashionable and have never gone out of style.


The cross between jeans and leggings. You get the best of both worlds! Show off your curves while still enjoying the comfort of jeans.


These types of women’s pants are more for the work environment. Trousers are both comfortable and stylish and usually made of wool, polyester, or cotton.


I love capris! There’s not a summer that goes by that I don’t pop one on. You may call them by another name depending on which state you’re from…

Stretch Pedal Pushers

I’ve heard them being called pedal pushers, clam diggers, three-quarter pants, or crop pants. Whatever the name, these stylish pieces should be part of your wardrobe.


Firm fitting, booty lifting, camel-toe popping… you name it! Leggings leave little to the imagination and if you got it then flaunt it! Leggings are your typical gym attire but you see them everywhere nowadays.

Yoga Pants

Yoga pants get their name because of their flexibility and how comfortable they are. You don’t have to go to yoga class to wear one!

And, yoga pants are not leggings. Yoga pants are thicker and have more breathing room than leggings.


These types of pants styles for women are most popular for slender women. Palazzos have wide legs and the overall pants remain very loose. There’s not a fashion show on earth that you can go to without seeing a palazzo.

Sailor Pants

These pants types are snug around the waist but flare out at the bottom. Some are knee-length while others are full length.

Harem Pants

Harem pants are loose-fitting and comfy pants that are normally woven using silk.

Pegged Pants

Pegged pants are trousers cut full in the waist and thigh area that taper to a cuff or gather at the ankle.

Khaki Pants

Khaki pants are your typical male uniform. You see them at schools, workplaces, as casual shorts, or formal attire.

Throw on a sweater and a pair of khakis and you’re ready for the golf course (we know who wears these).

Cargo Pants

Cargo pants are your best option for outdoor activities like hiking. They are comfortable, have lots of pockets, and come in a variety of colors.

And, there are even some more fashionable, no so outdoor-ish options for the trendsetters out there.


Chinos are like the cousin to Khakis. The difference is that chinos are dressier and the stitches are hidden. You wear chinos at more formal events given the slimmer cut and lighter material.


These are athletic pants but like leggings, you now see them swinging around everywhere. And, there are many types of sweatpants to choose from.

Flat Front Pants

Last but not least is flat front pants for men. These ones are best bought in a store where you can try them on. They have a peculiar fit and unless you’re absolutely certain of your measurements, it’s best to go in person and get them.

Culottes Pants

Culottes pants are pants which give an illusion of skirts. Though it’s a pant with two cuffs, yet when worn, it looks like a skirt.

Bootcut Pants

Bootcut pants are cut very precisely so that the upper leg tapers slightly to fit from thigh to knee, but widens a bit to widen from the knee down to the ankle, at the hem of the pants. Usually, there is a one-inch boot accommodating increment.

Flare Pants

Flare pants are also known as bell-bottoms due to the extremely wide hem extending down from the knees, resembling a bell.

Skinny Pants

Skinny pants, as the name suggests, have a more narrow opening through the legs. Their cut is extremely snug, and narrows from hip to ankle; skinny pants are also quite tight around the backside area, too.


Hiphugger pants are a low-rise pant style that fits tightly along the hips and thighs. They tend to flare out at the bottom much like bellbottoms.

Daisy Dukes

Daisy Dukes” are extremely short, form-fitting, denim cut-off shorts worn by women, particularly in the American South. They were so named after the character of Daisy Duke (portrayed by actress Catherine Bach) in the early 1980’s American television series, The Dukes of Hazzard.
