One can’t deny that the patterned pant trend is in full flare, especially as the spring season rolls around. Many retailers are jumping on board with the trend by selling and styling it in various ways. Have you tried out this trend? If not, I recommend giving it a chance.

This Fashionista is rocking a pair of, what she referred to as, groovy pants. She paired her free flowing pants with a cropped gray graphic T-shirt and a black hoodie. To finish the look she is wearing a pair of coral Converse and body jewelry. She is owning her free spirited look that fits in perfectly with Columbia College’s artistic school vibe. As a photography major, this playful style expert is ready to go to class.

The patterned pant is flattering on almost any body type and if styled correctly, can become a piece that works for all seasons. The patterned pant adds uniqueness to a look and it can be styled in various ways. A few looks include feminine, preppy and relaxed. Choose a pant that reflects your style.

Notice how this Fashionista is pairing her patterned pants with neutral or solid colors. Adding too many patterned pieces along with the pants could overwhelm the eye. Also, pairing the patterned pant with solid colors makes sure that the pant is the center of attention in this look.
