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.
