A few weeks ago I posted about my foray into the printed pants trend. I didn’t necessarily love that outfit, but I haven’t given up on printed pants entirely. I’m not big into florals, so I’m keeping an eye out for a fab pair of plaid skinnies to pair with pastels and brights this season. Although some of the florals aren’t SO bad. I expect I’ll end up with a pair eventually. But there are a lot of ways to wear the trend.
I like the idea of these black-and-white chevron-print pants at Ann Taylor, I just wish they weren’t cropped. I find that look to be aging if you’re not careful how you style them. I’d also love to try on these modern abstract slim jeans. And these polkadot toothpick jeans at JCrew are cute because they aren’t a loud print. And while these aren’t really my style, these camo skinnies at Madewell would be really cute on the right person. I like this floral print at Old Navy. Like the polkadot ones, they allow you to participate in the trend without being too loud. And at that price, you don’t mind experimenting a bit. Same with these snake print denim leggings at Target.
Of course I couldn’t resist having some fun with Polyvore. Here are cute outfit ideas!
I love the idea of polka-dot pants. Especially these where the neutral tone-on-tone color palette maintains a classic look.
These red-and-black plaid pants are fun. I put them with a leather bomber jacket and a plain white tee for a more casual, slightly edgy vibe.
And finally, for those floral lovers out there . . .
You know what? I kinda actually like that last look. Maybe I won’t write floral pants off juuuuust yet!
Which is your favorite look?
