5 Days, 5 Ways: Striped Trousers
Whether you want to step up your grown-up style for your internship or you’re just getting hip to the pants game beyond sweats and jeans, adding striped trousers to your wardrobe rotation is sure to give your style a leg up on your collegiate competition.
Yes, a plain pair of khaki chinos is required material for your SG101 wardrobe. Once you’ve got those, you’re ready to level up with something more adventurous. A striped pair of trousers are just as smart, and at least 20x cooler. You’re young, after all; have fun with your wardrobe while you can.
