The Pants with the Side Stripe and why they are here to stay
What has been seen on the runways of previous seasons at Fashion-weeks in all of the major cities, is making a comeback once again. It is no secret, that athleisure has had an impact on all fashion houses, ranging from Chloe, Wang, to even Dior. Brands who have incorporated various athletic wear aspects into their own high fashion and ready to wear collections, to keep evolving with the direction where fashion is headed. There is a huge shift happening. This is the Mode. Athleisure is dominating all the catwalks. As the Chloe S/S 16 collection had shown, pants with the side stripe are the popular fashion piece to have. These pants are the best item to have in order to create the new sporty chic look, as they can be worn and combined in so many different ways. From the Catwalks to the streets, the tracksuit pant with stripes on the side is also a staple for fashion bloggers and influencers when attending Fashion Shows and Events across the globe, to look edgy and fashion-forward, retro yet modern at the same time.
I too, have been loving this trend. So naturally, when my cousins visited from Europe over the Summer, I didn’t hesitate to snatch these old pair of Adidas Pants from one of them. You guys already know I love wearing men’s wear pieces, that are super chic for women too. (plus it wasn’t worn or used in this amazing way, like I do anyway, duh)
The Washington Post did a write-up on the Comeback of the so called Fashion Understatement’s rise.
I do have to roll them up like 5 times, but who’s counting? I love to wear these on a lazy day with sneakers and a sweater, or as seen above with a pair of Mules and a cute vintage top.
