Printed Pants For Summer

Four Reasons Not to Be Scared of Printed Pants

We're thrilled to present our favorite story from Lucky!
From the innocuous (cloud-speckled Nick and Norah flannel pajama bottoms) to the completely outrageous (MC Hammer in all his harem-pant glory) to the just plain obnoxious (Kingpin, anyone?), printed pants tend to conjure up a bizarre montage of '90s-centric imagery. However, this season's crop of patterned trousers--while understandably intimidating--qualifies less as costume and more as refreshingly modern spring trend. And, surprisingly, these statement-making items are actually completely wearable. See below for options that are not only easy to pull off, but are entirely of this era.

1. Gap silky cropped pants, $39.99, gap.com
An abstract minuscule print in a mild black and white adds intrigue to a pair of breezy cropped silk trousers. Ideal with a blousy tank and lightweight skinny blazer.
2. Kookai Tropical Print Trousers, $108.94, us.asos.com
Happy, quirky and colorful--everything a print should be! A slightly subdued tropical or floral variety, like this pair from Asos, makes for a playful and unique weekend alternative.

3. Nic + Zoe, $97.20, zappos.com
Here, classic tailoring balances out a daring, somewhat loud print. Completely polished when coupled with a crisp white button-down and timeless ballet flats.
4. Forever21 high waist tribal pants, $19.90, forever21.com
Earthy tones make this tribal print almost come off as a neutral. Try pairing with a denim jacket and flat sandals for day, or with a dressy tank and heels for an evening out.

Agree, snarkypants. I'd cringe if one of my friends asked if they were okay to wear (except maybe the Gap ones). And anyone with any bottom is going to look at least 2x as big.
