In my personal fashion guidebook, a sleek pair of striped pants is as essential as a perfectly fitted, hip-hugging pair of jeans. Years ago, I found my ideal striped pants and I simply wore them to death. Finally realizing that I couldn’t possibly repair another seam or obliterate another stain, I had to let them go.
So, you can imagine my relief when I found these Cuba Striped Pants by Anna Cohen. High-waisted and elongating, you can keep your look understated with a white, ruffled blouse or add a burst of color with the peach silk top shown here. If you’re tall, wear them with structured ballet flats, or if you’re short like me, pair them with some hot patent pumps. They’ll never truly replace my retired striped trousers, but they sure are a fabulous substitute!
