In the race to spring style perfection, there's one trend that's certain to earn you the gold: racing stripe pants. The sporty style is out in full force this season and is bound to gain quite the stylish following, what with its casual-meets-chic qualities.

And unlike some other past sporty trends (baseball hats, anyone?), racing stripe pants are actually insanely easy to dress up if you're not much of a casual dresser. Translation: This is one trend that's perfect for all personalities.

Singer Idina Menzel proved just how effective a single side stripe can be at adding a touch of depth to otherwise standard black pants with this pair featuring a bright cobalt racing stripe.

Miley Cyrus broke out her racing stripes for a Super Bowl promo event, but the sporty trend can work equally as well for a night out. Just look at how effortlessly cool (and comfy!) she looked in racing stripe pants styled with a sheer top.
