If you're looking to spruce up your wardrobe with a bold statement, then you're going to want to start shopping for pinstripe trousers! I think that trousers, especially cropped ones, are my current favorite wardrobe addition. I recently hit the malls to find the perfect pair and came across this adorable black and white striped style. The look is ever so charming and the vertical lines coax the eyes into thinking that your legs are longer than life (something that I am always desiring). I styled this look with a cozy black sweater and fun caramel beret because it was pretty chilly in the Funkzone that day. I usually wear this type of outfit when I have a packed schedule of meetings and need to be comfortable yet professional. The soft fabrics from the sweater and trousers make me feel like I'm donning PJ's to work.
Now I know when you think of black and white stripes your mind automatically thinks of Beetlejuice, but this trouser style is nothing alike. Both fitted and loose, they create a breezy silhouette that will be perfect for Spring weather. This type of pattern can be intimidating to style but if done the right way, you'll be stepping out in a sophisticated look perfect for a day to night schedule. My rules: stick to monochromatic. Play around with neutral separates or even opt for a plaid blazer paired with the striped pants. Just make sure to stay within the same color story and you can't go wrong!
