The cut of these pants runs straight from the hip to the knee, then flares dramatically from the knee, steadily outward to the ankle. (They're also called "bell-bottoms.")
Flared pants draw your eye to the floor. They are best for taller, leaner shapes; other shapes will end up looking unbalanced and shorter than they are.
