Stripes have always been a staple in the office and in the streets because of its versatility. To give your look an update, why not opt for vertically striped pants like the one pictured above? Not only will it elongate your figure, but when paired with neutral tones and a chic purse, you can also easily go from desk to drinks without having to change a single thing.
