STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Be Bold In Graphic Pants

Let's Hear it for the Boys

When colored pants became a trend I remember thinking there was no way I could pull off such a bold move. Well I quickly got over that assumption and currently own three pairs of colored denim and hopefully still counting. Now there is another trend on the forefront: graphic pants. I have to admit, I do feel more comfortable trying this new style after wearing red pants all summer (you cannot get bolder than fire engine red pants). I spotted this Fashionista wearing ridiculously cute skull pants that looked comfortable with her sheer blouse. She let the graphics stand out by wearing a neutral blouse and sandals.

Give skull graphics a shot with this pair of leggings from Urban Outfitters. Paired with an oversized sweater and boots and this look is ready for fall. NASTY GAL has tons of graphic pants to choose from like this black and white floral denim, which can easily be transitioned from day to night with the right accessories. If you are feeling a little daring, then try their Mermaid Skinny Jeans which feature a detailed print of the ocean. J.Crew also adopted the new trend for their fall collection and showed customers how to make graphic pants tailored and ready for the office. Their Café Capri in Abstract Diamond is definitely something to swoon over. The trendsetting brand executes beautiful styling by pairing the pants with a green stripe tee in their monthly catalog.

As you can see, graphic pants are on trend alert. Therefore, finding a pair to fit your style should not be a problem. If you are a bit hesitant practice wearing a bold graphic tee or a bright pair of colored denim — it worked for me!
