Sure, printed pants can look like you’re wearing a pajama, but this certainly isn’t always true.
The key to pulling printed pants off is to know how to style them.
Here are some suggestions:
1. Pick a colour; coordinate accordingly
Even if your pants are incredibly colourful, you could pick a distinctive shade from the print and match it in your top. You could also consider matching your shoes to the brightest colour to maintain consistency.
2. Wear a blazer
A blazer makes the overall look more formal and thus less ‘pajama-esque’. A structured blazer in black or navy would particularly make for a more formal outfit. Note: remember to wear a solid-colour top that matches the pants.
3. All hail heels!
Flats give a far more laid back feel than heels, which always help to make an outfit look more put-together. Heels can be a lifesaver if you need to up the formality factor.
Since your pants are the focus of your outfit, you should keep the rest of your outfit simple!
Although the thought of wearing printed pants may seem intimidating at first, it is entirely possible to pull them off well and stand out from the crowd – in a good way. Time to give them a try!
