* Helps to slim and elongate your silhouette

Stripes will be everywhere this season. The Spring/Summer 2017 runways were flooded with various interpretations of this classic and effortlessly wearable print. While stripes are often deemed as unflattering if worn as bottoms or fitted dresses, the truth is quite the contrary. The trick to wearing stripes to compliment your figure is finding the right type of stripe. Many variations of the classic stripe pattern actually create an elongating effect, but the devil is in the details.

Naturally, vertical stripes tend to be more conducive to creating the illusion of a longer frame, while horizontal stripes can cause a widening effect because they direct the eye from side to side. Another important factor in choosing a flattering stripe print is the size of the stripe. Wide stripes look bulkier, leaving your frame fragmented and cut off, while narrow stripes appear more even and cohesive.Striped Pants Nina Greylin

The Greylin Nina Stripe Pants embody all of the criteria necessary to qualify as a flattering striped trouser that is both flattering and on-trend. Thin, vertical stripes are dispersed evenly on the pants. They also feature a wide-leg silhouette, which has a slimming effect on your legs. The vertical orientation guides the eye up and down, adding imaginary inches to the wearer’s height. Styling these trousers with high-heeled sandals or a pair of summery cork wedges will amplify the slimming/elongating effect.

The creamy white color of these pants, along with the lightweight fabric, will keep you cool and dry in warm summer weather. If white pants make you nervous because their often times less-than-opaque finish, rest assured. These pants are fully lined to ensure that you are never left over-exposed in bright lighting. We love them paired with a fitted tank top and statement necklace for a new take on nautical style.
