Bold black and white stripes, particularly horizontal ones, on tees are a yes, still a yes on shift dresses or flare dresses, but what about pants? Falling in the category of printed pants, these striped pants are fun when paired right (and not so much when not done right). Read on to know some do’s and don’ts -
- It’s mostly not a good idea to mix prints. So, since there are prints on the pants try teaming them with solid colors. Pair these pants with a chunky white (or black) sweater and a pair of nude pumps.
- Careful in choosing colors, cos it’s best to stick to one color scheme. Match the top with the either the base of the horizontal stripes or the color of the stripe, unless of course you are looking to try out the fashionable Parisian look, then thrown on a light-hued cardigan/blazer and red pumps!
- Stay within the same color options, team the pants with a white (or off-white) blouse and accessorize with a white statement necklace. Slip in to black pointy heels and carry a black clutch. Now this outfit, minus the statement necklace (if a loud one), is work appropriate!
These are just few of the many looks you can try out. Use your imagination to create personalized and unique styles for yourself. It’s time to get some of these pants for yourself from Gap and jump into the striped pants bandwagon!
