Okay, first of all, there is nothing more classic than stripes! When I saw these blue & purple thick stripped pants, I had to have them. Like, what else could I do? Just stare at them and leave? No chance! When I was in store, they, of course, did not have my size so I tried my luck online...sold out! Finally, they restocked them #yaaas. So , if you can snag these, don't waste any time & buy them!
I got strong retro vibes when I first spotted these pants and I immediately wanted to style them with a more current twist. I paired the pants with a simple ribbed crop top to keep the emphasis on the pants. As far as shoes, I went with my favorite black leather booties and cuffed the pants. Since it is warmer, you could also pair these pants with come platform sandals. I opted for my favorite Free People gold hoop earrings and a dainty gold necklace to match.
So why do I love these pants? Well, duh, they're striped but it's because the stripes are vertical! For me vertical stripes is the better choice because i'm pretty short. They make you look taller while horizontal striped may make you look wider and ladies, we don't want that! Also, Fall is "around the corner" (not really, it's still going to be months until it starts to feel cooler). These pants would pair perfectly with a cropped sweater and layered with a leather or denim jacket. Lastly, if you haven't noticed, colorful retro-style stripped everything is trending!
How would you style a pair of vertically striped pants?
