Ever in-tune with the latest seasonal trends, of course I just spotted Alexa Chung styling a pair of pinstripe trousers this week. Everywhere I look fashion people are incorporating this timeless pant into the wardrobe rotation this spring, and Chung is no exception.
As we move farther into spring, this new-season trend will help you retain the smart silhouette we've been building up over the colder months. With a naturally polished disposition, classic pinstripe trouser add structure and length to an outfit, contributing a smart foundation that can accentuate or juxtaposed per your styling choices.
Having seen the men in my life wear pinstripes since I can remember, this season, I want in on the action. Bringing a smarter element to a jumper outfit, the pinstripe trouser trend works to add structure and polish to a daytime look—making it ideal for office styling. Whilst I'm compelled to shop a pair with a matching blazer, this versatile piece holds its own when paired with a casual top like a basic white tee, or a navy knit à la Chung.
Across the board, influencers are joining in on the pinstripe hype and brands are offering up some tempting iterations. From H&M to Reformation, shop our edit of the best pinstripe trousers below.
