Fashion Trend Alert: Racing Stripe Pants

What Would You Pair With These Racing Stripe Pants?

There's a new trend hitting Hollywood and I can't decide if I'm on board quite yet. The racing stripe pants are a funky twist on the skinny, cigarette pant - slightly cropped and uber trendy. The look was seen on model Miranda Kerr and fashion favorite Blake Lively both wearing them like they're (not) going out of style.

Blake wore a black and white pair in a slim fit, which if they were baggier, they would resemble Adidas track pants rather than something high fashion. She smartly paired her trendy pants with a white-collared shirt with structured shoulders loosely tucked in. By pairing her outfit with open-toed bronze sandals, it breaks up the black and white look in a fashion forward way. The strong accessories - statement necklace and wild patterned clutch - serve as fantastic pieces to this otherwise on-the-fence look. Because she created an outfit with the pants rather than creating an outfit around them, she was able to demonstrate how versatile the pants can be.

Miranda on the other hand took a different take on the look letting her striped pant colors be a sophisticated black and tan. This color combination is classy, if somewhat subdued, but was brightened up with a sleeveless, button-down white shirt. Her sky high stilettos added some sexiness to the outfit, but didn't overwhelm or outshine the trend. Her oversize tote and sunglasses and simple ponytail made her look fit for running errands. Well, if you are a model running errands that is.

While the trend looks fantastic on both of these beauties, I'm still not convinced I could incorporate the racing stripe pants into my everyday wardrobe. However, new looks are always exciting and as always with fashion, never count anything out!
