Step into spring and call in summer with printed pants. A statement item for any style, bold or understated, here is how to find the perfect printed pant.

“When we finally feel spring emerging with a glimpse of what’s about to come, I always feel like skipping into floral dresses and anything that makes me feel summary and excited about the season. If you are someone who gets rather chilly, the perfect idea to indulge this need to express spring and to ease into your summer closet is a statement printed pant.” – Julia von Boehm

Whether you are feeling like a day to night ensemble or a sofa to backyard cocktails look, the perfect printed pants can be found for every style. Having both bright and more subdued variations gives us a range of options to dress up or down. Keep in mind they don’t necessarily have to be loud. For someone who prefers neutral dressing, or usually opts for an NYC all black look, go for prints with a subdued color scheme like a deep background or more tonal pattern, and pair them with black, white, or colors that are found in the actual pant. For more of a statement, go for a fully suited look like Brie Larson’s look in InStyle’s March 2019 fashion story.

I always like to play with texture and silhouette. A great way to build multiple printed pant looks into your closet is to find pieces that do different things. For example, a wide leg silk pant vs a brocade flare or high waisted straight leg pant. While each of these can be styled with the same approach, their silhouette makes each outfit different and fresh.

Another bonus point — we can still wear sock with our slides if we want, as the printed pant makes it a little more chic. For a relaxed look, dress down with a white tee or bodysuit, pair them with a heather grey sweatshirt, and style them with a slide, sneaker or loafer. To dress up your look, go for a silky top and an embellished or colorful heel and add a little sparkle with some earrings or vintage rings.
