Jeans are without a question the staple to most of my outfits. Although I love them, wearing the same dark-washed skinny jeans gets a little repetitive and doesn’t make for a very innovative outfits. In my struggle to keep my outfits more interesting than my basic tank and blue jeans combo, I’m often forced to wear skirts to add pattern and color to my outfit. However, wearing skirts is not exactly conducive for the weather that awaits us in these upcoming months. This Fashionista solved my dilemma with patterned jeans, which maintain the warmth of my blue jeans while throwing in a major pop of color.

How To: No matter what you’re style, there is a patterned pant for you. Like this Fashionista, you can do an edgy print, such as an acid wash or animal print. To continue with this edgy look, add a motorcycle jacket and combat boots. But if edgy isn’t really your style, you can also go with a preppier look with some floral or polka-dots. With this look, you can pair a cardigan or your favorite fall jacket. But with any print, you’ll have an easy yet comfy and effortless staple that will make any outfit something special this season.
