3 WAYS TO WEAR STRIPED TROUSERS

By Maybelle Morgan, 21 August 2017

Forget denim as you know it. Standard blues have been swapped out for something with a little more bite and, lately, we’ve been crushing on statement printed denim. Get your legs into something bold with these straight-leg jeans in thick monochrome referee stripes. Here are three ways to wear them…

Brunch babe

Lean into the clash with this stripes-on-stripes-on-stripes getup. The soft baby-pink horizontal lines complement the sharper dynamic of the jeans and the high-top Converse kicks add to the contrast wow factor. Break up the stripe fest with a Marie Antoinette-esque cropped jacket in French brocade (bonus points for the cutesy ribbon and denim detailing). Disco drop earrings add the pretty – perfect for your girls’ brunch date.

Weekend steez

And now dial it right down for a chilled weekend. The key is to clash but in an understated way. Amp up the texture by pairing the jeans with a simple crushed-velvet mustard tee. Finish off with monochrome animal-print sliders for some subtle matching and add kitsch detail with plastic-fantastic earrings.

The only way is glam

Your night out deserves these jeans. Need irrefutable proof? This megawatt 80s look is high on the glam and stare-stealing potential. Match the monochrome with a white peekaboo puff-sleeved top and take the dressiness down a notch with this kitsch cross-body bag. Then add high-shine disc earrings and pointed hot-pink booties for maximum dance floor potential.
