When it comes to pant details that get the most attention, it’s usually all about the rise and the length. But a more granular detail like the hemline is another element that can give your tried-and-true trousers an extra dose of style. Take, for example, the split hem. This trend is characterized by a slit placed at the bottom of your pant leg (oft in front). While it may seem inconsequential, as you’ll soon learn, this seemingly simple design decision can make your entire outfit look, well, cooler.

To illustrate our point, we rounded up 17 pairs of split-hem pants ranging from modern minimalist iterations crafted in sleek shades of black all the way to glittering trousers well-suited for the dance floor. Ahead, discover the split-hem pant that’s right for you and your wardrobe.
