STYLE ADVICE: Printed Pants

Weather is in between cold and warm right now in Boston meaning it’s time to start bringing out the spring clothes! Probably one of the hardest seasons to dress for, it’s always a struggle to incorporate winter and summer looks into one cohesive look. One spring trend that I currently love is printed pants; they will easily become a necessity.

These black and white striped pants are perfect for any occasion and they were styled perfectly for the weather. Since it still is a little chilly, a long sleeve white top was tucked in and a suede vest was added. To add a little color, maroon lace-up shoes are the perfect complement.

The key to wearing printed pants is to make sure the outfit is minimal enough that it doesn’t take away from the pants. That is why neutral colors are a necessity in finishing the outfit.  We used these neutral colors in the shirt and vest.

Also, if the pants are loose, like in this situation, it’s better to wear more form fitting tops. Choosing the right printed pants can be hard since there are so many fits, colors, and styles. However, styling vertical striped pants are so easy because they make anyone’s legs look long and flattering. The best part about these pants is the little bow accent when the belt is done, tying the whole look together. Adding a color to such a busy look can be risky, but these flats are perfect for when it’s too hot for booties and too cold for sandals.
