Style Advice of the Week

Need a little more spice in your wardrobe this season? Printed trousers are sure to do the trick. Stylish and totally cozy, a pair of slacks like these will allow you stand out effortlessly.

Thanks to the endless number of patterns and prints out there, finding the perfect one for your go-to style – or maybe even a style that you wouldn’t ordinarily wear – is made easy. Choosing a floral print can instantly transform your look to classic and preppy whereas choosing a tribal or tye-dye print can give you more of that hippie-grunge look.  This Fashionista’s print of choice falls somewhere in between, further underlining the versatility of the style.

An important thing to note when trying this style is that it should almost always be paired with a solid top. There’s no need for added busyness, just sit back and let the pants do the talking. Selecting a top that matches the base color of the pant can easily create a fun jumpsuit look. The other option is to pick out a top with a contrasting color.

This Fashionista chose the latter, wearing a super sexy lace-up black tank to highlight the black swatches on the pant. The high waistline of the pant is extremely flattering, sitting at the smallest part of her midsection while simultaneously giving her some amazing height. For the finishing touches, she wears tall, black pumps, a small Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-body bag and some adorable heart-shaped sunglasses to nail the laid back, going out look that all of us Fashionistas strive for.
