Most of us resort to ‘safer’ pants in our day-to-day; we place the chance to make a statement on other pieces, such as tops or coats, and more often, on our accessories. But sometimes, it pays to mix it up in the bottoms department, if Paris is any proof. Don’t get us wrong—neutrals are still in season, but it might be time to make bolder sartorial choices when it comes to pants, just as we have made things more interesting in other sections of our wardrobe. Here are hypnotizing printed pants worth trying to replicate the scenes in Paris, even if the Fashion Week has already concluded:
1. Roksanda Pipa printed silk tapered pants
Roksanda makes things more fun for silk in these printed Pipa pants, fresh from the label’s recent Fall collection. The multicolored fabric is oh-so comfortable to wear and the silhouette makes them enjoyable strolling partners. There’s more to that, though; the Italian-made pants also appear to be splattered with paint and doodled on, increasing the relaxed vibe that the construction already gives.
2. Andrea Marques printed straight trousers
It doesn’t have to be spring or summer to wear foliage prints as Andrea Marques’ take on the pants seems to be appropriate even in the advent of fall. The designer’s penchant for prints on her creations is made more desirable by the fact that her fabrics of choice are a delight to wear. The pants take on a feminine silhouette that looks great whether used to dress up or down.
3. F.R.S For Restless Sleepers Ettore grosgrain-trimmed silk-twill straight-leg pants
F.R.S For Restless Sleepers‘ Ettore pants look cozy enough to sleep in, but they make an impact just as well when worn outside the bedroom. The straight-leg bottoms are riveting with its vibrant color and mesmerizing geometric pattern. The silk-twill is luxurious and comfortable, but it doesn’t have to be loose-fitting; adjust the ties made of satin so it hugs the body as desired.
4. Erdem Sidney floral jacquard cotton pants
If you’re looking for florals to wear this season, then Erdem‘s Sidney pants are the perfect buy—the chosen colors blend perfectly against autumnal hues, but so does the floral pattern with the black background. Created in Italy, the pants are flattering to the legs. Wear yours with a silk blouse for an effortlessly elegant look.
5. Chloé Printed cotton-blend corduroy slim-leg pants
Logos are still modish this time around, but instead of shooting for the usual brands associated with the trend, why not go for one with a charming logo like Chloé? The motif is actually taken from the brand’s archives, lending the pants a vintage vibe in addition to the corduroy material. The construction elongates the legs too; pair with ankle boots for a strong finish.
6. Haider Ackermann Suede and wool pants
Even a pair of pants partially adorned with prints make the cut this season. Haider Ackermann’s suede and wool creation features animal prints, which is the craze during the past months. The trendy leopard print, however, is complemented by the glossy leather by the rear, making an edgy pair out of the differing fabrics.
7. Prada Printed wool-twill straight-leg pants
Just in case it does not register immediately, what you’re seeing on these Prada pants are lipsticks of varying colors, a playful print to adorn your bottoms. The Italian-made garment ends a little above the ankle, giving you more freedom to flaunt your preferred footwear.
Wearing prints when you’re comfortable with your neutrals doesn’t have to be daunting, and the same applies to your pants. In fact, it can be rather fun to pick, and they’re foolproof ways to liven up an outfit. If you’re not accustomed to wearing them, balance the print with wardrobe basics in safe colors; soon enough you’ll be comfortable wearing them on off-duty days and otherwise.
