Side-stripe trousers have made their way in and out of the spotlight over the past few years, but due to an influx of grown-up athleisure-inspired attire hitting the market and a prominent S/S 16 catwalk spot at Chloé (shown below) and a continued interest for A/W 16 (see the Burberry show for details), it seems there’s no better time to invest in these statement trousers. Scroll down to see how women like Pernille Teisbaek and Ece Sükan are styling them now, and then shop from our edit of the very best pairs.
