Q: Horizontal stripes are such a big trend, but they make me look wide. How can I still wear them? — Chiara, San Francisco

A: Think vertical! Up-and-down stripes elongate and are just as of-the-moment as horizontal lines. They’re flattering on everyone. I love cropped pants, but because I’m 5’4″, they don’t always work. I wear our striped, cropped Emett pants with a tonal wedge, and I look taller instantly. — Tory

Our cropped, straight-leg Emett pant is also available in cream, and looks great worn with its matching Pennie Stripe jacket for a summery take on suiting.
