If your aim is to look tall and lean, the first item which you should purchase is a staple pair of slim fit, cigarette pants. Which you'll be able to wear on a daily basis.

How to choose a pair of slim fit pants: No matter how much you weigh, or what dress size you normally wear, the slimmest part of your leg is likely to be located 3/4 of the way, down your calf. Ideally, you should aim to purchase a pair of cigarette pants which hit your calf at this point. If in doubt, you can't go wrong selecting an ankle grazing style. Ankle grazing styles are especially chic paired with flats such as summer sandals, flat boots and ballet flats. When you're in the fitting room trying on different styles, try to pair a pair of slim fit pants that stop once cm before your ankle. However, a word to the wise, if you have big feet, it's worth opting for a style that is a cm longer as a longer pant leg will help cover part of your shoes and will give the illusion that you have smaller, daintier feet.
