Spring 2012 Fashion: How to wear printed pants

Printed pants – you hate them, love them or are the fence about actually buying and wearing a pair, but printed pants is a trend that seems to reappear every spring on and off the catwalk.  Classic leopard, funky colourful patterns or floral prints“ all of these prints have popped up in popular retail stores, enticing us to try this artwork fashion trend for ourselves. Here are three helpful style tips that will get you wearing printed pants with confidence in no time!

1. Pair with a basic and simple top
No sequined detailed tops here “ simple is all you need. Whether the pants are floral or leopard, your top should complement the print and the style. A simple shirt keeps all of the attention on your pants and the black or white shade will balance out all the colours in your outfit. A basic top that will never fail you? A loose white or black shirt. The best fashion rule to remember about pairing printed pants with a top is to let the pants speak for the whole outfit.

2. Add low-key accessories
Even though printed pants are pretty much an accessory on their own, it doesn’t hurt to add a thin belt or a pair of statement earrings into the mix. If you do decide to add accessories to your already bold attire, choose low-key ones that are mainly there just to add flair, and much like finding the perfect top, simple accessories are always the best choice.

3. Choose different textures, styles and patterns
The fun with printed pants is that you can usually choose from a variety of styles, patterns and material texture. Don’t like wearing leopard? Try a tribal black and white print. Don’t like the idea of tight fitting printed jeans? Opt for a pair of slouchy printed harem pants. There are so many options when it comes to choosing the print that’s right for you, so make sure to try on different looks until you find one that is right for you.
