Printed pants aren’t as scary as they may first seem; polka dot, floral, houndstooth, Aztec, stripes, and other prints are a simple way to add a unique element to your outfit.
In fact, printed pants aren’t scary at all. If you’re used to wearing blue jeans, you wouldn’t think twice about pairing it with a patterned top, so start by pairing your printed pants with a neutral top. Try a button up blouse, a simple white t-shirt, jean jacket, or a fitted tank. As you get more comfortable, start mixing prints and adding statement jewellery.
As soon as the sun came out, I couldn’t wait to sport my Mavi Alexa Ankle Jean in Blush Flower. The broad floral pattern isn’t overwhelming, and the faded pastels are a romantic alternative to standard denim. I paired them with a simple chambray dress shirt, a pair of peep-toe wedges, and my latest Thrift Store Score: a vintage bracelet that I purchased for $9. And when the sunshine goes away (which it always does in Vancouver), I’ve still got flowers.
