If you ask me what to pack for a trip to Europe, the first thing that comes into my mind should be a pair of navy/white striped wide-leg pants! Whether walking round in Paris, enjoying dinner in Greek, or soaking up the sun in Mediterranean, it just fits all the scene perfectly, let alone how versatile and practical it is:

The silky breezy material and comfy loose fit make it great for traveling; the chic and luxe vibe make it easy to transform when arrive at your destination: with wedges/flats for day or stilettos for night. The classic color combo just goes with every top you bring.  After the vacation, you can wear it straightly to the office with a tailored blazer and structured tote!

When choosing yours, those with vertical stripes and high waist design are more flattering and leg-elongating. Also, don’t take “wide-leg” too literally. Find one that is relatively slim fitting. Pair it with fitted, sleeveless tops to get the right balance, like today’s featured ladies did.

Black and white epitomize the modern simplicity, but today’s featured fashion maven reinterpreted this classic combination: By adding ethereal white skirt, jeweled belt and embellished strap pumps, Olivia Palermo gave this monochrome palette a feminine and graceful vibe; By teaming a sheer surplice blouse with an equally eye-catching wide-leg striped trousers, Zanita Morgan made a strong impression that is bold, adventural yet so chic and infectious.

Attention to details always matters: from Olivia Palermo’s impeccable hair and dainty jewelry to Zanita Morgan’s messy waves and revolver pendant necklace, each serves for the overall result and impact.
