Busy, garish, eye-catching, high-fashion…this rather versatile collection of words have been used to describe printed trousers. Whilst they’re clearly not for everyone, there’s no denying that printed trousers are well and truly on the fashion scene this spring, and if you want to spice up your wardrobe and be a bit brave, then its time to embrace this trend. Go big or go home as that person once said…
Whether its tribal, geometric or paisley, print is the best way to make a statement. This season puts gecko and floral prints firmly in the limelight, often teamed together.
For a look that will get you looks for all the right reasons, team a pair of printed trousers with a simple white or black top, or a crisp shirt. Completed with a pair of heels to elongate your legs, this is the ultimate look of sophistication alongside a bit of playfulness. For celebrity inspiration check out queens of under-stated fashion, Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba.
And if you’re feeling rather daring, then team a block colour top or jacket such as a blazer with your printed trousers. Sometimes picking a colour out from the print and using this as your top half colour can make an outfit look amazing!
If a pair of Jonathon Saunders tear-drop trousers or Moschino Cheap & Chic pineapple print trousers are simply not attainable to you right now (boo), then H&M have some amazing floral prints in spring colours in the sale (I got some for £7!), and Zara are selling some stunning subtle printed patterns.
Wear with confidence and you will soon find compliments coming your way! You may even become a local style icon!
