STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Printing Press

According to Oscar de la Renta, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” Prints are a major trend right now, especially when it comes to prints on pants. The best part about this trend is the variety. While printed pants are the “fashionable” item, there are so many ways to wear them that can truly scream “you.”

I spotted this Fashionista on the street rocking her printed pants and wedges. Her look shouted out, “Hey, I’m confident and I know it!” She walked tall and owned the extra height her wedges gave to her already tall frame. She wears her pants fitted and pairs them with a simple black top and a DKNY bag. The cuff bracelet simultaneously offers an edgy and feminine touch and her aviators keep the summer sun out of her eyes.

This trend is so important because printed pants are such a versatile trend. You could choose to go floral, paisley or geometric—the options are limitless. This Fashionista chose to go geometric and with the neutral color of the pants, they are a piece that she can wear with a collection of different colors and styles. The same goes for the Fashionista wearing them.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Wear clothes that make you feel good. Buy a piece that you truly love and can get a lot of use out of, even if that means you have to spend a little more because it will become a staple piece in your wardrobe.”
