The cut of these pants runs straight from the hip to the knee, then straight from the knee to the ankle, with no taper or flare.
Straight-leg pants are good for a triangle because they add fullness below the knees to balance. They also work for an hourglass shape because these pants will fit snug at your hips and then fall straight to your ankles. As an added bonus for shorter frames, this cut will give you a the illusion of being taller than you actually are.
