This season there’s no trend more fun than a fabulous pair of printed pants. Playful and colorful, these eye-catching bottoms will have you starting summer with a bang! Sure, the loud prints and bold patterns may seem a bit risky, but like most trends… it’s all about learning the basic styling rules while adapting it to blend with your personal style. When it comes to styling your pretty prints opt for a solid colored blouse, letting your printed pants do all the fashion work for you.
For those of you weary about diving into the print pool, I suggest starting with a simple faded design, elevated by a top in a contrasting color. Craving to go bold? Be sure to choose a blouse that matches one of the colors in your pants to insure a beautifully blended look. As with most trends, balance is key, so when wearing harem pants or slouchy bottoms try sticking with fitted tops. For tight printed skinnies or leggings opt for oversized tops or even a blouse with a peplum for a trendy dash of fash. And last but not least, topping off your look with a killer shoe is always important. In my opinion printed pants always look best when styled with a strappy sandal like a cute flat or summery wedge. It’s important to keep all of your outfits’ elements as light and clean as possible when turning this bottom heavy runway look into an everyday ensemble. Follow these simple rules and you’ll have everyone taking notice of you rocking this trendy summer staple!
For all you fearless fashionista’s try rocking a multi-colored floral print similar to my look above or make a splash with a bright bleached denim like this pair from ASOS.
For those of you scared to take the print plunge opt for a pair of skinnies in a light color or faded design similar to my look above for a delicate step into this summery trend.
