There is truly no wardrobe workhorse that puts in the effort quite like the humble cigarette leg pant. Designed with a narrow leg that is more often than not cropped, the business casual classic offers way more variety than people typically give it credit for—especially when you deviate from neutrals into prints. Paired with a blazer, they're smart. With a boatneck top, the cigarette leg pant looks like it was taken from the off-duty inspiration of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Better still, the timeless style works year round, paired with sleek sandals in the summeror maybe a pair of Mary Janes—but are just as impactful in the winter with booties. In other words: it's worth adding a pair to your closet.

Here, 15 pairs of cigarette leg pants to build a classic wardrobe upon.
