By now, your legs have enjoyed a primarily fabric-free few months. They've peeked out of billowy dresses and caftans, shown off in short shorts and skirts, and gone full monty in your cutout swimsuit. They might even have a tan.

While it's easy to get stoked for leather jackets, boots, and, of course, denim, let's not forget how powerful a great pair of pants can be.
