Wear the Trend: Printed Pants
One of the biggest trends this year is printed pants. Today's colorful pants are way better than their '70s counterparts. Jeans, trousers, and palazzo pants in bright patterns are completely on trend for summer. Fun ikat prints, bright springy florals, and geometric prints are all examples of patterns you'll see this season. From the runway to bloggers (even celebs) everyone is rocking these statement printed pants.
Tons of popular stores are carrying these gorgeous pants in every price range. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. ASOS Pants In Mixed Print 2. DKNY Printed Stretch Silk Pants 3. THML Ikat Printed Pant 4. ASOS Pants In Floral Print 5. Current/Elliot “the Stiletto” Printed Jean 6. Current/Elliot The Ankle Tapestry Print Mid-rise Skinny Jean 7. MinkPink Distant Traveller Pants 8. Indah Wide-Leg Printed Pants
For a casual look, pair any of these printed pants with a simple white tee, dainty gold jewelry, strappy sandals, and a messenger bag. To bump it up a notch for a nighttime look, throw on a matching blazer, button-up shirt, pointy-toe heels, chunky jewelry, a bright lip, and a classic clutch to pull the whole look together. Although these are a very unique piece to add to your wardrobe, they can easily be transitioned from day to night and can even be mixed with other patterns in your closet. Try a nautical striped tee or tiny polka dot tank with a bold print on the bottom. The unexpected pops of color in these pants are actually a great way to flatter your body and add some excitement to a rather boring T-shirt-and-jeans look. I know this is a daring trend, but printed pants are a perfect addition to any outfit!
