The Spring Print Trend Takes on New Territory

Printed PantsPrints are a major trend for Spring: Florals, novelty, and tribal were all the rage on the season’s runways. Designers offered up something a bit unexpected this time around, with pants, often the province of simple denim or khaki fabrications, getting the print treatment. Slouchy or slim, printed bottoms proved a force to be reckoned with. Follow a few tips to rock this trend in a fun and flattering way.

Print proportion is key, no matter your chosen silhouette. Pint-sized star Kristen Bell  makes a case for simplicity in a sweet polka dot style in subdued shades, while leggy looker Olivia Palermo went for a larger graphic look. Spend some time in the fitting room playing with scale, you’ll be glad you did.

Which prints have the biggest buzz? Weather it’s a work-friendly trouser or casual jean , florals made a huge statement on the runways. These looks are versatile and feminine with a bold touch. Geometric and animal prints also offered cocktail and casual takes.

While bold was certainly the spirit of the runway, in real life a softer touch works well.  Monochromatic or classic stripes and plaids are a chic interpretation of the trend, sure to carry you through numerous events and seasons.

Get a leg up on spring style, and slip into a pair of printed pants, a surefire way to bring your look up to date!
