I have been seeing Fashionistas wearing patterned pants all around London. They are a great spring item because they are versatile for all weather types. The spring season brings rain and shine. So, patterned pants can be worn with boots and a leather jacket like this Fashionista for colder weather, or with sandals and a blouse for sunnier days. From socialites to actresses this trend seems to have become a wardrobe staple for spring and summer!
I spotted this Fashionista on my way to class. I thought she did a great job styling her black and white patterned pants. She pairs them with ankle boots. Ankle boots are an essential item for students on the go. She continues her neutral palette with a leather jacket, which is a good staple piece especially in London. A lightweight but warm jacket is able to withstand the constant changes in weather. I particularly like the quilting detail and fur collar on this Fashionista’s jacket – it’s something special and different, not just a basic item. This Fashionista adds a pop of color with her bright yellow sweater. A pop of color is always fun and unexpected when worn with neutral colors. She finishes off her look with a structured black handbag and another pop of color, this time pink, on her lips.
Patterned pants can be found at many stores ranging from fast fashion retailers like Forever 21 to more high-end stores like Anthropologie. Soon, when I leave London and go back home to California, I plan on sporting this patterned pants trend – and I will gladly trade the boots for sandals.
