What are Pants? What types of Pants are popular in fashion?

Learn all about the types of pants. Teeanime brought wearing trousers as a fashion statement into the world of modern couture. Since then many types of pants and trousers for women and men have evolved into our wardrobes.


Here is the anatomy, in 10 simple points, of a pair of pants.

  1. Leg opening – This is the gap at the bottom of the trouser leg. The hem might be flared, straight, cropped, turned-up, or plain.
  2. Side seams – Plain stitched or topstitched the side seams are both functional and decorative.
  3. Fly or zip opening – The front fly opening can be closed with a zipper or buttons. If the trousers are elasticated at the waist, a fly may appear as a misleading effect.
  4. Pockets – Back pockets, seam side pockets, and front pockets are all features of pants. The pockets on jeans are usually top stitched for effect.
  5. Waistband – This is the band that holds the trousers up at the waist. It often but not always has loops for a belt.  Sometimes different heights of the waistband can change the style and cut of the pants. High-waisted pants are an example of this.
  6. The rise is the distance between the crotch and the waistband. It measures from 7″ to 12″ and decides where the pants will sit. As a result, low rise jeans are low-waisted, and high rise jeans are closer to the waistline but not on the waist.
  7. The yoke is the shape cut and sewed at the rear of jeans that gives them their particular cut and style. Palazzo pants may feature a yolk across the front, although the yolk is typically part of the back.
  8.  The crotch is the curving seam that runs from the waistband on the front to the rear. Some pants styles have a lower or cross-cut crotch seam. This sort of crotch seam is seen on Harlem pants.
  9. Belt loops allow the wearer to slot a belt around the waist to hold up the pants.
  10. The bottom hem completes the pants. It could be a plain hem, a turn-up, or gathered onto a band or pegged with a tuck at the bottom.
