Printed “fun” pants, as I like to call them, have been all the rage as of late. Whether they are harem fit, palazzo pants or just your casual lounge pants, I could probably count at least a handful of these pant sightings in one walk to class. Whatever you call them, these pants are a definite staple you need to add to your collection (preferably many).

Clearly I like them for the bohemian vibes, but there are so many more reasons why they’re becoming so popular this spring season! They’re incredibly comfortable; my go-to library outfit consists of my favorite tie-dye pair and an oversized T-shirt. Between all the different patterns, color schemes and fits, the options are endless; you could wear a different pair every day of the week, and no one would notice! They’re also the easiest the way to spice up any outfit in just the nick of time. Running late for class? No problem. Throw your hair in a bun, slip on a pair of printed wide legs and a crop top, and you’re set to go.

This Fashionista captures the perfect essence of that comfy, beachy vibe that I love in the way she styles her favorite pair of fun pants. The print is nothing too obnoxious so they’re perfect for just a casual dinner on campus, class or even a study date with the cute Fashionisto down the hall. The crochet in the top is also so unique that it balances the calm print of the pants perfectly. Plus, how comfortable does that look? The halter neckline is super trendy right now, especially with the loose choker necklace just grazing the neckline. The stacks of bracelets of all different colors and materials are the perfect accessories, not drawing too much attention away from the pants.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Purchase a pair or two with more obnoxious prints to wear for special occasions and going out—they’re so easy to dress up!”
