One great way to wear this style is by getting nude, or beige colored pants with a dark stripe. This look is good for your first attempt at wearing the tuxedo stripe pants. If you are nervous about getting this style right you can pair these light colored pants with a dark colored solid top, or if you are more adventurous you can pair your pants with something like the shirt in the picture above. Stripes and stripes is a brave fashion move that not everyone can pull off.

If you are looking for something a little more subtle you can wear a pair of pants more like these Ralph Lauren tuxedo leggings. The black on black look is a classic style, and easier to match to shirts you already own. Getting leggings like this is great if you are looking for a comfortable, but somewhat dressy look.
