The printed pant is back in a big way, bringing lightness, depth, and excitement to spring wear. I love the printed pant because it allows you to experiment with texture, color, and of course pattern. I am obsessed with bold prints and really can’t get enough (peruse these old posts to see the full extent of my love). The printed pant is so special, because it is unexpected, making the piece even more eye catching. You can also take the look in so many directions: you can pair your bold print with a more subtle counterpart or mix and match prints for a truly dazzling ensemble. Printed pants can seem intimidating, but don’t be scared, instead play with proportion, tightness, lengths, and size of patterns. Find what fits you and your style best and embrace this bold trend.
Bold prints do not mean you can ignore the accessories, which always complete a look. Right Side: Bracelets: Fornash (found here), Ring: Custom (similar here), Left Side: Watch: Michael Kors (found here), Ring: Margaret Elizabeth (found here)
I love me some skinny pants and these are the perfect length for heels. I also cuff them when wearing the pants with flats or booties.
I chose to pair a semi subdued top with these bold pants to ensure that the pants were the main focus. However, I do LOVE the subtle leather detailing of the peplum top!
These pics were taken in the picturesque Charlottesville, VA at my sister’s house. I’m sure there will be more pictures taken in cville on a much sunnier and less dreary day.
