struck by stripes

4:44 PM

I'm such a sucker for striped pants, so when I spotted this on Tobi's website I knew I needed them. Stripes in general have been on my radar lately. It's always such a classic and polished look. Vertical stripes are great for shorties like me who want to elongate their legs. I've been focusing on getting unique trousers so I'm not constantly reaching for jeans, and these fall just perfectly in that category. The red color of these pants is beautiful and looks so rich paired with my black turtleneck.

The pants are made of pretty thin material, so wearing them this winter will mean pairing it with a heavy coat. No issue there, as it just means they'll be wearable next summer in the warmer weather. I always love a good multi-seasonal garment!  

I just adore the tie detail on the waist, because it adds interest to the garment and sets it a part from other high-waisted, wide leg pants I own! The turtleneck also provides some interest to the look with gold buttons embellishing the cuff of the sleeves. As I mentioned before I'm going for an elongated leg, so I wore my sock booties that have a fairly tall heel. I can see this look becoming one of my go to for work and social events, because it's chic, sophisticated, and a little bit funky!
Details of outfit are below.

  1. You look very pretty rocking that black H+M turtleneck with the vertical striped pants from Tobi! I like the artistic design of the stripes and the tailoring. Your earrings look pretty too.
