Printed Pants Spring Eternal





Etro SS14; Source

Spring has officially sprung which means the return of printed pants. You are absolutely right if you are thinking that printed pants were also trendy in the spring of 2013. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that they will also be popular next spring. They are perfect for the light, fun and easy-breezy qualities that spring embodies. Printed pants are also associated with fall, of course, but the prints are more traditional and far less whimsical than the printed pants of spring.  Is it time to put away the printed pants of fall such as plaid, pinstripes and houndstooth? Not necessarily. In fact, traditional fall prints are still around. They have either remained visually intact or have just been transposed onto lighter fabrics or paired with pastel shades. Animal prints such as zebra print and leopard print, for instance, don’t have an expiration date on when they can be worn. Zebra print, in particular, remains a common print for the printed pants of spring. Even houndstooth, typically thought of as a fall staple has come along for the ride into spring. The easy elegance of black and white outfits has a lot to do with the transitional endurance of these type of prints. If black and white prints are not your thing how about ikat and snakeskin? Both are widely popular prints this season.  Of course, I could never forget the endless popularity of floral prints which once again reign supreme during warm weather season.

The printed pants of spring, in my opinion, also tend include a much broader range of prints to choose from than the prints of fall. Palm trees, clouds, cherries, pineapples and a host of other fun prints suddenly form a charming partnership with pants during warm weather months. I could not be more intrigued by pants than I am when they contain a pink polka dot print for instance. Spring pants have the type of cuteness factor that simply cannot be used to describe the printed pants of autumn. There are plenty of prints to go around. It's all about what you favor. A few of the printed pants on my dreamlist are those from Etro and Vivienne Tam. Oh, if only I could afford them. A girl has to have her dreams. Note: The Etro SS14 looks below, unless otherwise noted, are courtesy of Style.com.

Fortunately, for those whom are charmed by printed pants, they come in many silhouette variations which makes finding an ultra-flattering fit for one’s figure relatively effortless. Whether you prefer high-waisted, cigarette, harem or flat-front there is bound to be a pair of printed pants to suit your spring time needs. Printed pants in silk, sateen and other luxe fabrics are commonly referenced as pajama pants but don’t let that fool you. If you are not into the relaxed fit printed pants that are so commonly seen on city streets this spring then there are a multitude of fitted pants available. I have a preference for those of the more fitted variety, myself, but regardless of your choice you will be one among many this spring if you decide to join the printed pants cheering section.  Note: The looks below are from Vivienne Tam's SS14 collection.

 
 
 
 


 

If you don’t have any printed pants but are looking to join in on the printed pants trend this spring perhaps a sporty-luxe pair will meet your needs. Paired with a lace or crochet blouse, a clutch bag and statement jewelry you will be at your glamorous best as you chillax with friends and family.  Have I convinced you that printed pants deserve to be in your wardrobe arsenal this spring? Maybe the looks below will convince you. See how bloggers, celebrities, socialites and other fashionistas style their printed pants.

Tip: The best way to style printed pants, unless you are a master at mixing prints, is with either a solid-colored or a color-blocked top that picks up no more than two shades included in the print; otherwise, you risk creating a look that is "too busy."

What do you think of printed pants? Are they in your style rotation or are they too over the top?

  3. I just purchased my very first pair of floral patterned pants last week. Since I wasn't sure how I would incorporate them into my wardrobe, I decided to pay less for them, and the pattern isn't overly busy. More of a subtle floral, I'm happy with them and I'm looking forward to styling them in my own unique fashion.
