The past couple of years have been filled with an obsession of printed pants. Loosely fitted or tailored, printed pants have been seen in all seasons for all occasions. Paired with a blazer and blouse, they work beautifully for a sophisticated look on the job throughout the winter. When worn with a crop top and sandals, they are the perfect warm weather weekend uniform. For its great range of wearability, the printed pant trend has stayed around for quite a while. I believe it will remain a major trend for many years to come.

This Fashionista showcases a successful casual take on the popular trend. She pairs a thin, navy and gray pant with a black flowing top and exposed bralette. Worn with a light quilted jacket, the outfit is great for the windy days of the spring. Finished off with a comfortable walking shoe, fun necklace and a green Longchamp, the outfit becomes an ultimately chic ensemble suitable for a Saturday stroll.

What I love most about these pants is their ability to transition to so many occasions. Worn with a V-neck, chunky sweater and flats, an appropriate casual Friday look can be created. Worn with a white chiffon tank top, gold accessories and heels, the pants are perfect for a going out look. Not only are the pants an interesting departure from denim, but they are comfortable and cool. Sounds like a good investment to me!
