Over the past few weeks, we've noticed Beetlejuice-inspired fashion showing up in more places than just our blog: For Fall 2012, vertical striped pants are the next big thing. These dramatic trousers definitely make a statement, but the question is: Is this trend wearable on campus, off campus, or absolutely nowhere at all?

Don't be concerned about looking like a jailbird because there are plenty of different looks to try. There are several styles available in stores, from wide-leg pants to trousers, and high-waisted to low-cut. Bold fashionistas love wide-leg versions that are tight up top, but if you prefer a more subtle look, opt for a basic skinny jean with light stripes (like the Topshop version above).

The question is... would YOU wear vertically striped pants?

We want to know what you think! Leave your comments below. Are these around for good or just for fun? Would you wear them?  If yes, then how would you wear them?
