How to style striped pants

After having a lot of people ask me for ideas on how to style striped pants, I was really excited when The Warehouse brought out a pair in their plus size line, giving me the chance to get some and style them for myself.

I got my regular size and they’re a comfy fit on me. They’re not your traditional harem pant fit as I have quite big thighs, but if you have smaller legs they would be. I did try on bigger sizes to get that looser fit but settled on this one because the length is right for me.

Because these are quite a fitted pant on me, my go to styling would be with an oversized top. I like to pair close fitting pieces with looser ones to give a bit of balance to my outfit and make it a bit more three dimensional. I’ve had this top for about four years and find it a really good wardrobe staple.

I’ve been amping to wear this tank and think it’s super cute paired with the striped pants. I think any other black and white graphic tee or tank would work with these pants, you could even branch out to colour if you wanted – I’d just make sure that the design wasn’t super busy because the trousers are quite eye-catching on their own!

Wanting to brighten things up? Add more white. A plain white tee and sneakers are easy for a summer look, and you can add a longline cardigan if you’re cold or not keen on showing your arms. I like the idea of leaving the drawstrings hanging down if I’m going for a more casual look.

    I really like these pants, especially when I saw them in store but I found them to be a little thin and worried about panty show through. Did you find they hold up when you wear them?

      I wouldn’t wear super bright or patterned underwear with them because of the white stripes, but to be honest I haven’t tested that out. I didn’t have any issue with with them showing my black or grey underwear
