We have all heard the saying you should not wear large prints because it will draw attention to parts of your body that you want to hide. Ummmm yeah about that…I think that idea needs to be put to rest. The rise of the printed pant has come and I could not be more excited! I believe that any style can be worn by any body type, but finding the right fit and color patterns are definetely key! The pants I wanted to highlight in this post are from last season at New York and Co. for under $40!
I was drawn to the pattern at first glance and thought no wayyyyy could I ever pull these off. Then my inner Beyonce emerged and I did an imaginary hair flip, pulled out the size 14, and made my way to the dressing room. After slipping them on I immediately felt a sigh of relief that I did not have to do the traditional pants dance, you know the one I am talking about. The lunge, jump, pull we have all had to do at one time or another in the dressing room almost on the verge of sweating to get a cute pair of jeans or dress pants on.
The key to statement pants shopping is to be on the lookout for lightweight material, especially in a poly blend for a bit of stretch but snug in the right places! Also, the highwaisted look with the drawstring gave the look of these pants a casual feel, but can also be dazzled up a bit too. I paired my fav tops from a basic to bold with details below to give you a visual of how to pattern clash and color coordinate as well!
