Printed Pants: 4 Spring-Perfect Picks

Printed pants are not for everyone, but if you can rock them, then more power to you. Even some celebrities have embraced the floral look and decided to wear funky printed pants while walking down the red carpet. Although I love this look, you should avoid purchasing these pants if you have a shorter body type and pack some junk in the trunk.

My first feature is simple compared to some of the printed pants out there. It is a simple four-color combination. The bright red, blue, black, and hint of white go well together to make a striking pant. Pick one of the fours colors represented on the pant and wear a solid colored tee in that color.

Are you feeling animalistic lately? Try these leopard printed pants that will look great during the fall and winter months. Pair it with a citrus yellow or lime green for spring and summer but keep it darker in the cooler months. I would definitely play with this denim pair in the warmer months. Don’t be boring and wear it with black! You can even get creative and wear a bulky pair of thick, eccentric heels with it to play up the entire look.

This next pair are a little pricey but gorgeous. They are for the more sophisticated, discreet gal who refuses to wear an overbearing pant but still wants to embrace this fun trend. This is a two color pant. Phillip Lim’s design is flawless, and the silk and spandex materials give it a perfect fit. Wear it with a red shirt and red sassy shoes to give it a girl’s night out flair.

The next pair reminds me of being a little girl and frolicking through the corn fields in Germany on a warm summer day. This is a very floral pair, which means they look overbearing if you have a curvy body. The right girl would look lovely and feminine in this pair, but if you wear it with too much make up or heavy accessories, then you could sabotage the look and defeat its girly look
