Denim Trend: Let’s Get Verticle

By now we’re all pretty comfortable with horizontal striped, well, almost everything. I love nautical stripes in navy and white, especially paired with cropped, black skinny jeans. The look makes me feel like a hybrid of a french sailor and Audrey Hepburn. Very Coco Chanel, I suppose.

But what about when we take that comfortable notion of stripes and turn it 90 degrees? How do we feel about vertical stripes? Specifically, on ourĀ  jeans. I wouldn’t call it a full-on trend yet, but I’ve seen more and more brands from Paige to Genetic Denim embrace this bold print.

I’ve tried them out, and I think they’re pretty cool. Do you like the look of vertical striped jeans? Would you rock them?

    I think it’s an awesome look. Vertical stripes, I strongly assume and greatly would appreciate, make one look slimmer. Give longer looking limbs. Love the skinny jean selection.
