Printed pants are growing on me. I wasn’t too sure about the large floral patterns on pants because they could be overwhelming, but now that I’m seeing them more, I’ve added it to my list of trends to spend money on for the fall. Of course this is a trend that can only work in certain work environments (like the ad agency I work in), but it’s cute for the weekend if your office is more corporate. There are 2 important things to keep in mind when wearing printed pants:
1) Keep it simple: Let the pants be the main part of the outfit. Pair them with a solid color top that doesn’t dominate. This is not a time to be mixing patterns.
2) Coordinate colors: When pairing the pants with a solid color top, make sure the colors coordinate. Choose a subtle color from the pants – like black, blue or tan.
