Wanna know something? I have been craving a pair of joggers – the kind with a stripe up the side – for well over a year. It started when I saw one of my favorite YouTubers style them so perfectly. The pair she shared were from the brand Reiss, a brand I had not tried before. Needless to say I was hesitant and instead searched high and low for a pair.
New & Noteworthy Striped Pants
A funny thing happened during my search. I realized they looked horrible on me! Ha!! You see my favorite YouTuber has a very different body type than I do. Time to switch gears. I had to really think through what it was that I liked about them and what they would do for me and my wardrobe.
What I Discovered – Noteworthy
I discovered that what drew me to the style was how casual yet chic they were; kind of sporty yet easily elevated with the right top. I also realized that what didn’t work for me was the elastic waist and the wide leg. My friend Nanette shared these on Instagram and I immediately purchased them.
This pair, it turns out, was just what I was looking for! Slim leg, stripe up the side, a zip up the side – not a pull on style. Even better, I knew they would work for me because I own them in plain black too!
New Ways to Wear Striped Pants
The stripe up the side is a fun twist on a classic pair of slim leg pants. They look great with a sweater, button down, blazer, you name it. Take a look at a few new ways I have worn my striped pants!
So, what do you think? If you aren’t a fan of the stripe they do come in a total of 8 colorways. I would say they run TTS, I am wearing a size 6 and they are very comfortable. They have some stretch but hold their shape.
Thanks for paying me a visit today, I appreciate you being here. I wish you a wonderful weekend, one filled with rest for your soul and the making of lots of happy memories. I have a lot planned, I am hoping to do a weekend recap on Monday!
