Pinstripes are seriously having a moment right now. This trend was all over the runway at New York Fashion Week, and you can’t hit up any of your favorite stores without seeing a few items incorporating this classic pattern. Whether they be big and bold or super thin and traditional, pinstripes are a clean way to incorporate a current trend while also accomplishing a timeless look.
This Fashionista perfectly tackles the pinstripe trend by making them the focal point of her outfit. Choosing to wear a classic, gray wrap top insured that her black and white pinstriped palazzo pants were the most important part of this look. Not only do her pants make for a great statement piece, but the vertical stripe pattern also makes her legs appear longer, and who doesn’t want that? Her monochromatic color pallet and the versatility of the pinstripes can easily take this Fashionista’s look from day to night all while leaving her looking effortlessly cool and put together.
There’s no question that these pants are totally the star of this ensemble, so this Fashionista choosing to pair them with a simple shoe was a good move. These black mules complement her outfit perfectly without drawing too much attention away from her pinstripes. Mules are also really on trend right now, and this pair’s neutral colors mean that you can pair them with pretty much everything. Plus, their low heel means you can wear them for any occasion without having to worry about compromising your comfort.
It’s easy for pinstripes to come off as being professional, which might not be what you’re always going for when putting together an outfit. So it’s all about those accessories when taking pinstripes from office wear to street wear. This Fashionista knew just what she was doing when completing her outfit. Her dark green bag provides this look with a pop of color that creates interest but isn’t too distracting. This Fashionista finished off her getup with these big hoop earrings that give this look a youthful and urban touch.
Dress them up or dress them down; pinstripes should be a staple in your closet and are definitely a must for this season.
