The side-panel pants, once known as the tuxedo pants and typically reserved for menswear are the new “IT” pants for the ladies this season. With the clever positioning of a single vertical stripe, wearing these pants gives out the illusion of long legs.

What I particular love about these side panel pants is that it makes the decision to wear black or white pants so much easier. Not to mention the classic combination of black and white is forever a classic. This look is chic, effortless, can be dressed up with a blouse/blazer or worn casually with a tee or a sweatshirt. I went for the comfy sweatshirt look.

Ladies, what are your thoughts on these side panel pants?
