Printed Pants are the New Statement Piece

Playful and colorful, this season’s printed pant trend will have even the most timeless and classic creatures wanting to don a bold striped or floral bottom. They are fun and colorful and come in variety of  prints and fabrics. Since these graphic bottoms do call attention to your lower half, here are some ideas on how to make this trend work for you.  If you like a floral pattern and you are feeling a little heavier around the hips or thighs stay away from a ditsy print (tiny, usually floral). Try a vertical stripe or dark tightly spaced print. Be careful, that there isn’t too much fabric , especially in the new silky fabrics, so you want the pant to fall straight from your hips. In the work zone you can try the vertical pantsuit or a pant with a subtle all over print. Great with a pair of strappy heels, but if you need to go a touch more conservative a single soled pointed pump works great in a nude color. Peg legged printed pants require a fitted top and are worn best with a wedge or strappy high heel. When wearing a bold, colorful printed pant you have the option of matching up one of the colors found in the print for your top or opt for a neutral if you need to be a little more understated. Skinny printed jeans are great with flowy tops and tunics and can be worn multiple ways. If you’re getting ready for a night out on the town wear your pants with a pointed high heel shoe, or if you just running around during the day, an oversized sweatshirt or tee and some Superga’s are ideal.  With any of these looks, keep the jewelry minimal and let the pant speak for itself, you don’t need anything competing for more attention.The new ankle printed pant is a classic, what’s old is new. Great to wear with the new power flats and a crisp button down shirt. Perfect for running errands or grabbing some lunch with the girls. So kick off this spring  by trying something bold, colorful, loud and absolutely fabulous! These patterned pieces are tempting, so have fun with them and don’t be intimidated to incorporate them into your closet and your own personal style.
