Striped pants are everywhere lately! And while I don't always try new trends, this one gets two thumbs up for being (potentially) work appropriate. My only issue with these pants is the fit. I tried them on in the store first. They only had a size 0, so I ordered the next size up online. When the pants arrived they were not the right size (outside tag said 2, inside tag said 16), and by that point they no longer had the 2. So they sent me the 4P (petite, pictured), but I feel like Goldilocks because I'm still not happy with the fit. Thankfully there are plenty of options on a budget to choose from below, and I'm going to keep checking online to see if they restock. Would you wear this trend?
