Here’s a clue: it’s black and white and stripy all over and last had a fashion moment circa Y2k… You got it, zebra is the pattern that’s making our eyes go all blurry but has our wardrobes looking sharp.
If you’re ready to shop the monochrome stripe, you’ll find it on everything from zebra print bikinis, blouses, dresses and jackets… But the trend that is making every outfit pop right now? Zebra print trousers.
Despite their wild reputation, zebra print trousers are actually the easiest piece to style. Ever. Which means while they look *so* right for now, they’re a staple you should never get bored of (keeping sustainability in mind, obvs.) They look relaxed with a plain white t-shirt and box-fresh white trainers (or black ones) but they also look glamorous enough for a night out if you add heels, a tank top and some statement jewellery.
The monochrome colour palette makes zebra super easy to work with. Just add more black or white if you’re wary of dressing in such a bold print. Black and white are also natural pals with pink, lime and neutral shades too. We’ve also found some colourful zebra print pieces that you could have hours of fun styling up. Just echo their tones in the rest of your outfit for a coherently styled *lewk*.
Some of our favourite pieces are from ASOS, like their Reclaimed Vintage jeans and toffee-coloured flares but we’ve also fallen for zebra print leggings as a way to *zhuj* up our workout gear. Marks & Spencer has a high waist version and The Upside does pair with four-way stretch. If your budget also stretches to a designer version, cult US brand Khaite has a pleat-front pair of trousers in golden metallic and Halpern’s silk pair are just the thing for Friday night drinks now they are a thing again.
