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.
