Photo by Getty  …Patterned denim is a huge trend this year, and we've seen legs adorned with everything from animal prints to floral designs. But we fell in love with the striped jeans English singer Jessie J wore to BBC Radio's Hackney Weekend. The contrasting black and white vertical stripes are not just eye-catching-they really elongate her legs! The "Domino" songstress paired her bold denim with other neutrals like a white jean jacket and studded black boots, while her coral and black cropped tank injected the right balance of color into the look.

It may seem like a wild look for every day, but styled correctly striped jeans can work, and Jessie J's exact pair is fairly affordable. The Jordan Stripe Jeans by Motel are sold at Urban Outfitters for $90 and select sizes are on sale for $56 at Asos.com. (They're also available in pink and white stripes or purple and white stripes for $39.77 each on Asos.com.) If you're feeling timid about the trend, you could try Rag & Bone's tuxedo jeans ($100) or contrast stripe jeans ($200) which feature just one swipe of color down each side. Tripp NYC offers a similar pair in black.

To try this look at home, we suggest pairing striped jeans with a slouchy tee in a neutral or muted color, and flats or boots. Keep accessories to a minimum and let those great pants do the talking!
