The terms pants, trousers, trousers, or slacks, refer to lower body garments that are "divided into sections to cover each leg separately."

Some ancient equestrian peoples wore such bifurcated garments. In Europe, they were called breeches, knickerbockers, or pantaloons. In the households of nobles, young boys wore gowns until they were "breeched," or dressed in pants for the first time. This was usually a part of childhood, but at least one prince wore dresses until his twenties.

In some cultures, women have been wearing different types of pants for thousands of years. But in the West, this clothing style was reserved for men. During the 1800s, attempts to introduce women's pants - bloomers that were worn beneath shorter dresses - were rejected. Later, women could wear pants while playing some sports. During the first and second World Wars, women wore pants when performing jobs usually done by men. Before long, pants became acceptable for women in leisure and business settings.

Blue jeans, also called denims or dungarees, remain one of the most popular types of pants. They were invented in the United States during the 1800s to serve as durable work clothes. Today, they are an enduring fashion symbol.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Pants

How to Draw Pants: Step 1

1. First, let's learn to draw pants from a frontal view. Start with a long, curved line that seems to outline three sides of a narrow horizontal rectangle. This forms the waistband.

2. Extend a curved line from one side of the waistband towards the middle. Double it back upon itself, forming rectangular corners in the process. Draw a vertical line to complete this rounded square. Then, extend a pair of curved lines from the opposite side to meet the square.

3. Next, outline the legs. Extend long curved lines from each side of the waistband. Draw a curved line at the bottom of each. From these, extend curved lines to meet at a point. Above this point, draw a curved line and an "L" shaped line. This forms the fly or zipper of the pants.

4. Draw a circle in the middle of the waistband to indicate the button. On each side of the waistband, sketch a curved rectangle, erasing as necessary, to form the belt loops. Beneath these, draw a pair of curved lines from the waistband to the side of the pants to indicate the pockets.
