Wearable spring trends: 3 ways to rock printed pants

Hi GL readers! My name is Sloane and I write the blog Sailing the Sea of Style. I blog about fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I am excited to be sharing my tips on how to wear the hottest spring trends!
 

My favorite season is coming up soon, which is spring. I am a big fan of color, and I love to wear tons of bold hues during spring. I also love all kinds of prints: floral, gingham, Ikat, chevron…you get the point. Recently, I've been buying bunches of printed pants. I love the boldness of a statement pant and I think they are surprisingly wearable. Today, I will be showing you how to incorporate them into your everyday life: for school days, nights out and weekend fun. Keep reading to see my tips!

 

SCHOOL:

At school, rock a statement jean. This pair from F21 feature one of my favorite prints, Ikat. The shocking color combo of black and neon yellow will surely have heads turning in the halls. Pair it with a simple sleeveless black collared shirt to tone down the neon, and keep the rest to a minimum. Add neutral accessories to add contrast. Easy flats, a few bracelets and you’re positively perfect for school.

NIGHT OUT:

Be glamorous this Friday night: High-waisted brocade bottoms are sure to be a hit! The deep purple color is flattering on everyone’s skin tone. Add a neutral tee to keep the look a little more relaxed. Finish off with chunky pumps in a similar shade to keep the outfit semi-monochromatic. 

 

NIGHT OUT

WEEKEND:

You can still be comfy and stylish. Instead of tighter-than-tight skinny jeans, wear a loose-cut pant. I love a fun floral print—perfect for Sunday shopping and brunch. Captoe flats are breezy, while a grey tank adds to the "wearable pajamas look". A trendy necklace adds a smidge of sparkle to complete the look.

SLOANE’S TOP 5 TIPS FOR WEARING PRINTED PANTS:

 

1: Wear a neutral top.

2: Don't overdo it on hair & makeup: Bright colors and bold pants are hard to pull off together.

3: Pick the right shoes.

4: Keep jewelry to a minimum.

5: Buy the perfect fit of printed pants for your body type. (Seek out skinny, relaxed or bootcut options.)
