The 15 Best Fall Pants That Pair Perfectly With Flats

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

In the world of fashion, certain shoes just belong with particular pants. For instance, sneakers go with joggers, booties go with skinny jeans and tall boots team well with leggings. They’re silhouette soulmates! But what is flats’ other half?

While ballet flats can technically work with a wide variety of bottoms, we personally love the look of cropped pants with flat footwear. Ankle-length jeans with a slim, straight or boyfriend cut and a tapered leg beautifully balance the proportion of flats. The result? A slender silhouette and a stylish ensemble!

Ballet flats are back in style this season, so we stay on trend with these 15 complementary pants for fall!
