As winter draws to a delightful end, Fashionistas everywhere are packing away the pants in favor of crops, cute shorts and flirty dresses or skirts. In celebration of this heat wave, I am all for the shorter hemlines and airy fabrics. Although I am partial to my favorite flouncy shorts, there is one recent trend I am dying to try out this spring and summer: printed pants. This trend has been popping up all over lately, even the runway during the Trina Turk pre-fall 2015 show. In this collection, I am obsessing over the second look that includes a brightly patterned pant outfit. Printed pants are the ultimate piece to change up your style this season. Some people have a fear of crazy patterns, especially for pants, but there are some serious benefits to keeping it simple on top and making a statement on the bottom. The bold patterns stand out in the crowd of spring pastels, and the light fabric allows you to stay cool in the warmer temperatures. So I am daring all style enthusiasts to be brave and try out a pair of these hot pants this season!

Not only is this trend perfect for spring and the upcoming summer season, but they are also a versatile outfit choice. They can be dressed up to create the perfect date night look or paired with a comfy loose top for a laid-back weekend ensemble. Adding to their variety of uses, printed pants can create the perfect boho look for everyone’s favorite festival season. Pair them with a knit crop top and you’re all set for Coachella 2015!

So how can you adopt this trend in your day-to-day look? Check out this Fashionista and you can see how effortless it can be. With the spring weather still a little chilly here in the Midwest, these pants are the perfect bold spring print while being temperature appropriate. Pairing them with a basic but textured tank top helps the pattern in the pants pop without being boring in comparison. I love the look of the navy booties because they make the navy trimming and details of the pants pop. Finishing off the look with a gold watch and layered necklace completes this fabulous spring ensemble. As you can tell, these pants are the ideal trend this season. The bold statement you can make along with the comfort of the light fabric is essential for busy every day life. So what are you waiting for? Go find yourself the perfect pair now!
