Side Stripe Trousers – Trending Now

One of my favourite ways to enhance my style is choosing a design detail to elevate my clothes; the side stripe can do just that when it comes to trousers. Whether it’s your tailored trousers or casual joggers, the simple stripe design can breathe new life into your wardrobe, giving you the freedom to express your unique style.

Chances are, you’re already familiar with the side stripe trend. From the satin stripe trousers for black-tie events to the iconic three-stripe Adidas track pants that are a staple in every guy’s casual wardrobe, this trend draws inspiration from the world of sportswear tailoring, bringing a modern twist to the classic stripe design. It’s a trend that’s not just for the runway, but for the streets, giving your look a cool, streetwear edge.

Here are my tips on how to style this trend:

The Clash

Make a statement by clashing the side stripe block with a bold pattern. In this example, a clean black side stripe offsets the iconic Prince of Wales check. Other patterns include windowpane and pinstripe.

Tailored suit trousers with a side taping allow you to add a fun element to your classic suit—style with a white tee and a blazer in the same colourway to complete the outfit. Or dress down with a roll-neck and sneakers.

For a casual athletic take on the trend, opt for jogging trousers in various leg lengths ranging from cropped to cuffed and regular.

The side stripes add a new element to jeans. Styles include a darker dyed stripe or a woven taping in tonal and contrast colours.

Side taping is a standard for a tuxedo. The taping matches the satin finish of the blazer lapels. If you want to save money and get the most out of your wardrobe, why not repurpose your tuxedo trousers? The black-tie staple features a satin stripe and would fit perfectly into this trend.
