I love the graphical element as an addition to an outfit and the vertical stripe adds a slimming effect. Also, it's important to note that the lighter the fabric the more breathable it is. Baggy pants are the closest thing to wearing your pajamas out of the house. And, they are very in style at the moment so you have to just try a pair.
