Over the past couple of seasons, there has been no trend more prominent than the printed pant. From spring's bright florals; to summer's psychedelic designs; to fall's geometric patterns, these unique trousers are here to stay. While approaching the printed pant may seem a little daunting, you shouldn't be afraid to experiment with them.
Just like this Fashionista—she wasn't afraid to slip into a pair of metallic printed trousers for a night out on the town. She paired them with a simple black flat and black blouse to accentuate the cropped pants. The chunky coral necklace added additional color to the ensemble. This Fashionista had the perfect outfit for a casual night out with friends and could even rock this look on date night.
While we all love our black skinny jeans, it's important to step out of your comfort zone. This trend may seem a little daunting at first, but the great thing is that printed pants come in all different colors and cuts. Try anything from a wide leg to a structured cigarette cut to find the right cut that accentuates your form and fits with your personal style. Opt for a wide leg trouser like these ASOS Paisley Print Pants for a laidback bohemian look, or try a slim cropped cigarette cut like this Zara Printed Trouser when headed to work for a fashion-forward professional look.
For the adventurers out there, go for the whole suit! I've got my eye on this ASOS Pant and Blazer in Art Nouveau Print. Make sure that the printed suit you chose can be broken up; you'll be able to create dozens of new outfits with either just the blazer or just the pants. What I like about this suit is the dark color palette and the boyfriend cut blazer. Definitely go dark and subdued when choosing a printed pant and blazer ensemble.
If you're still skeptical about rocking this look on a night out with friends, date night or even at work, holiday season is here! Don't get me wrong—I love a good holiday dress. But in a sea of sequined cocktail dresses, you'll stand out in a pair of bright trousers. Try a metallic print like this Fashionista with a chunky heel and sleeveless blouse for a holiday party. Or go for these ASOS Tapestry Print Pants with a black bootie and knit sweater at a family dinner. You'll find there's a color, cut and print for any occasion, so no excuses!
