    Printed Pants

    Sweater-Banana Republic, Printed Pants-Loft, Zia Suede Platform Sandals-DVF  

    Printed pants are everywhere including magazines and stores but I have to admit I have not been particularly drawn to this trend..until recently when I stopped by Loft and spotted these pants on sale. I tried them on for fun and to my surprise they are the most comfortable pants I have ever put on and they look better than I imagined. Whether they are florals or geometric patterns, printed pants can be a great statement piece to add to your summer wardrobe.  They are comfortable, playful, and best of all can be easily dressed up with a blazer and heels for work or dressed down with a tee and a pair of flats for a weekend stroll and brunch. 

    A Few More Tips About Wearing Printed Pants

    1. Larger and bolder prints tend to draw the eye so these styles are best for taller women and women who want to show off their toned legs. Petite women look better in prints that are smaller.   

    2. Printed pants look great with solid tops including blouses, tee’s, and tanks. For a more polished and balanced look be sure the color of the top matches at least one of the colors in the pants.  And if you are a little more daring try mixing prints, but remember the prints for the top and pants should be within the same color scheme. 

    3. Remember to go simple with the accessories. Avoid bold statement necklaces and printed scarves because they draw attention away from the printed pants. A simple necklace, earrings, or bracelet works great with this look.

    Those pants look great on you. I haven't got a pair of printed pants in my wardrobe – yet. I'm on a shopping ban until the end of August 😉

    Great tips! I cannot wait to try this trend out 🙂

    The print on these pants is subtle which makes it easy to transition from casual to a more dressed up look. I love them.

    Adorable pants! I think mixing a tiny pint with a large bold one is a fun way to mix it up! 🙂

    Perfect timing. My brother gifted me a pair of printed pants from Zara (my mom chose them), along with some other stuff last night, as an advance Raksha Bandhan gift. I was wondering how to style them and here you are with all the ideas I need.

    Love this outfit! I have yet to get some floral pants. I am on a mission for fall. Thanks for the tips!

    That is good advice- patterned pants can be intimidating! You look great in that pair.

    Oh how I love a good print! These are fun, and easy too, the small print makes them so great to coordinate with.
