Well, looks like the side tape trend has come a long way from the gyms & yoga classes, right to your street-wear closet! Street wear brands have picked up this trend from the runways and brought it to the fashionable crowd of the world.

Damsels in Dresses
It’s time to ditch the predictable LBD and go for one which has a contrast red and white taping along the sides. The side tape trend is giving a cool casual twist to dresses, thus making them perfect picks for some fun street-style. T-shirt dresses with color-block side taping, when paired with chunky sneakers & backpacks can help up your street-wear game in a jiffy!
Be the Denim Babe
This trendy tape detail, when incorporated into denims, makes you feel like nothing less than a fashion icon. Just pop into a pair of boyfriend jeans with a white side taping on it and paired with a white off-shoulder shirt and red mules, for thousands of hearts on your #ootd Instagram post! You can even go for a denim-on denim look with skinny-fit denims having the side taping, coupled with a crop top, a denim jacket, and sneakers.
With joggers having taken their rightful place in every woman’s wardrobe, it’s time to wear these both outside and inside the gym. Joggers with side taping are a style statement on their own and pairing them up with a cropped hoodie or a sweatshirt and trainers is going to look as fashionable while doing cardio, as it’ll look at an airport. You can even pair up your newly upgraded joggers with a camisole, suede or a leather jacket, sneakers for a ramp-ready street-style look!
