Printed Pants

Basic blue jeans are a girl’s essential, but printed pants are a new classic at this point. From florals to metallics and animal print patterns, these fun takes on denim are incredibly of-the-moment and — surprisingly — totally wearable.


I love these INC printed pants. They lend a young, fresh flair to an otherwise grown-up ensemble of a black blazer  and pointed-toe pumps. This pattern can be loud, but by pairing them with basic black pieces and only one color (that blouse!), the look stays understated.

If bold patterns aren’t your thing, start with subtler details, like little polka dots and pinstripes. Above all else, just remember two simple rules:

    • Consider the cut.  Printed pants with flared bottoms can look a little dated. I find the most flattering way to wear printed pants is with a skinny cut leg.
    •  Wear a top that’s the same color as any of the hues in your pants, and you’ll look fresh and put together.

  1. Oh wow, I love those pants! Printed pants are one of those things I never pick up (mainly because I don’t think I could pull them off) but seeing other bloggers wear them make me want to give in & try it out! Great tips too. Thanks! Hope your weekend was fantastic!!

    PS: Love the city backgrounds in your pics! I grew up in a suburb near Chicago & always dreamed of living downtown once I graduated college! Unfortunately that didn’t work out (yet!) but I’m still dreaming for some day :)
