Miranda Kerr Spotlights the Universally Flattering Side-Stripe Pant Trend!

I LOVE these pants!   Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr was spotted wearing cropped A.L.C. trousers with a distinctive black stripe down the side of the leg, which spotlighted the trend.  She topped off the look with a loose fitting sleeveless patch pocket top by Equipment, Manolo Blahnik pointy toe pumps and a black oversized tote.

The cut and design of these chinos work for practically every body type.  Vertical stripes deceive the eye and give the illusion of longer, leaner legs.  Rather than focusing on hips and thighs, the eye follows a straight, vivid line from hip to ankle.  Cropped pants are designed to show more leg than fabric at the hemline.  Showing more leg will make them appear longer.  So ultimately this trend packs the power of two ingenious tricks to flatter your body, particularly your lower half.

Since stripes have an innately sporty vibe this trend works best when teamed with casual separates.  That’s why Miranda chose to wear a loose fitting, barely buttoned top for easy breezy elegance.  For cooler temps wear side-stripe pants with a fitted turtle neck or a long sleeve patch pocket chiffon top to give the look movement like Miranda.

What do you think about this trend?  Would you wear them?  I’m all in!

Thank you for sharing the inspiration with friends!  Let’s stay connected.
