How to dress down pinstripe trousers

how to wear cropped pants

Remember the cropped pinstripe trousers? Yes, one of those impulse purchases that I just had to get even though I had no idea how to style them... Well, it turns out that the trousers might prove to be quite useful, after all. Or something that I really needed for my travel wardrobe on my recent trip to Madeira...

The trousers are made of viscose, so they work well for warmer weather, too.  And the wide-leg, cropped style can easily be dressed up or down. Oh, I do love clothes that can be dressed up or down!!!

So, how can we dress down pinstripe trousers? Well, I've always thought pinstripe would look good with black leather, so a biker jacket might be a good idea. And comfortable shoes, of course. What do you think?

And how could we dress them up, then? 
Let's get back to that one on Sunday...

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. I have the same scarf in several colours... Almost as if I was collecting them, huh?

  3. lovely outfit, I like that comfy&cool attitude, and the subtle color combo of accessories. Your jacket and comfy shoes are fabulous to dress down a pair of trousers. You could wear them with a satiny black top or something with texture, sequins, embroideries, and a pair of black boots and look really dress up!

  5. I'm with you Tiina, I love clothing that can be dressed up or down, so much more versatile. The striped pants work beautifully with the moto jacket, comfy shoes and scarf and white tee. Happy 2018 Tiina.

    1. Happy 2018, Jill!
      I don't want a huge wardrobe, so everything I own must be versatile enough to work in several outfits. Less is more, in that sense, too.

    1. Thanks, Jessica. In my wardrobe everything has to be versatile, I like to keep the number of items down. Downsizing, in a way.
