And there are as many ways to wear this look as there are stripe styles. Hilary Duff went for a skintight, zipper-adorned pair of jeans while Piper Perabo picked a ’70s-rocker-esque flared Joseph pair with circus-tent stripes. Rosie Huntington-Whitely paired pinstriped pants with a loose top and heels, while Nicole Richie went bold with a baggy, slouchy pair that contrasted her print top.
Certainly this look isn’t for everyone, but stout-hearted fashionistas among us should definitely give it a try. Between the slimming vertical stripes, the comfy fit and the versatile black-and-white color palette, these could end up being your favorite pants.
