Perfect Pants

Gap's new Black Pant Collection offers seven flattering styles—and they're not all black.

Let's be honest, even when you have found a great fitting pair that you want to wear forever, they don't last forever. The black begins to fade to a dimmer shade (not quite black, not quite gray) and the fit loses its crisp shape.

To the rescue: Gap's new Premium Black Pant Collection, offering a pant style for every body type. The seven silhouettes include the Perfect Trouser, Modern Boot, Curvy, True Straight, Really Skinny, Slim Crop and Boy Fit. The pants retail from $49.50 to $59.50, so they won't break the bank. Most of the pants are black, but they also come in navy pinstripe and gray (Bing: Shop for Gap black pants).

My favorite? The Perfect Trouser. The universally flattering style looks tailored and has a slightly flared leg). I was very impressed with the fit—not too snug and not too loose—and think they look expensive.

Another bonus feature: You can choose your pants' length (Ankle, Regular or Long). If you're in between lengths, why not buy two pairs—the shorter length for flats and the next longer length for heels?
