TrEnD aLeRt: PaTTerNeD / PriNTeD TROUSERS

Stripes, Florals, Graphic Prints and Abstract shapes. Bright and bold, or subtle and sophisticated. Almost anything goes when it comes to trouser prints in 2010.

Here are some style tips on how to rock your printed trousers; Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. Clashing prints can give a sense of careless charm. Just don’t overdo it or you’ll risk looking clown-like.

Bold prints will draw attention to your lower-half, so if it’s not the best part of your figure avoid skinny cuts and try for relaxed fits instead.

If going for a loose fit pant, pair with either a fitted top; or a baggier top that’s part tucked in, part untucked for a nonchalant look.

The right pair of relaxed pants is perfect for a 1940s loungewear look. Add soft waves, bright orange lips, and chunky cocktail rings.

For a young, urban look try 80’s inspired graphic prints like those found at Topshop. As an investment however, bear in mind that this style will be more short-lived.

If sophistication is more your goal, look for tailored, high-waisted styles  and wear them with a sharp pair of heels.

Below is a pic of Moi and Fashion Icon Rihanna rocking our printed trousers. I picked mine up at Zara for only $10. Like I mentioned above you don’t wanna splurge on this look because this trend will be short lived.

    Mz Lucas do you mind telling me how long ago you got your leopard pants? I’m in love with them and for that price I can’t go wrong. Reason I’m asking was just on Zara website and I can’t seem to find them.

  3. Nikki I doubt you will be able to find my trousers on Zara’s website now because I got them on sale. However you can check stores like H&M and Topshop for similar print/patterned trousers. I think you might have better luck with those two stores. Hope you find a pair 🙂
