Hems can reflect several cuts.

Skinny-leg pants: These types of legs are like a second skin on the leg. Their hems usually hit at the top of the foot and can create a slouchy look.

Wide-leg pants: Wide leg pants start either loose or fitted around the waist and hips; the leg becomes wide around the thighs and usually stays wide all the way to the floor.

Straight-leg pants: These pants are tailored to the body (not too tight and not baggy). After they hit the knee they continue to fall straight to the foot.

Flared-leg pants: These pants can be loose, fitted, or tight on the upper body, but from the knee down, they flare out in a bell shape as they hit the foot.
