MY DIY & GIVEAWAY | Side Stripe Trouser
During Fashion Week, I saw side-striped pants on both the runway and the stylish folks attending the shows, and I was instantly inspired to transform a pair of my own trousers. With a trip to the craft store and my Rowenta iron, I created my own version in 15 minutes!
Added bonus: I will be giving away 2 Rowenta First Class Travel Irons so you can make your own pair of Racing-Strip Pants. These travel irons are seriously amazing, one comes with everywhere I go!

Cut a piece of ribbon a few inches longer then your pants.
Stick the adhesive side of the Heatbond to the ribbon, then iron the ribbon, adhering the bond to it.
Peel off the paper back of the Heatbond.
Next, lay the ribbon on your pants, adhesive-side down, leaving a couple inches of overhang on the top and bottom.
Iron ribbon onto your pants.
Lastly, fold over the excess and iron to the inside of your pants.
Since these pants have kind of a sporty vibe, I paired them with an oversize varsity sweater, then dressed it up with wedged boots and small bag. For an evening look, wear them with a white shirt, a black blazer, and heels. Get creative by trying new pants-color or ribbon-style combinations!
