20 Style Tips On How To Wear Striped Pants

If you’ve gone out into public at all in the last few months, I am pretty positive you’ve been able to tell that stripes are easily one of the biggest trends in the fashion world right now. Striped tops and dresses are insanely popular, but so are striped pants. If that sounds unappealing, it shouldn’t – the striped pants on the market right now are nothing like the Beetlejuice pants you might think of. They’re more like trousers, both fitted and loose, and they look perfect for easy, breezy summer weather.

Wearing striped pants can be intimidating, though. It can be hard to figure out which top to pair them with and which shoes to opt for, because these pants are loud, bold, and statement making. What do you wear with a piece like that? Well, a lot, actually. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we’ve got a ton of it. Below are outfit ideas on how to wear striped pants taken from bloggers and super trendy Instagram users alike. You’ll quickly want a pair, and I’m betting they’ll become your most loved summer go-to.

1. Black and white striped pants are probably the most popular option, and also the most versatile. Keep them simple by wearing them with sneakers and a solid colored tee.

12. A lot of the outfits involve tops tucked into the bottoms, but you don’t have to do that. Leave a button down out, or half tuck it.
