The Pants of Summer

I used to be a HUGE prints person, feeling most comfortable and confident in whatever silhouette or garment offered me an all-over design, and although I’ve gotten away from that in recent years, I still appreciate one that is quite well engineered. I swore that I would only exploit the printed pants trend once this summer, but a second pair came my way that is just so fabulous that I couldn’t resist adding it into the mix.

I think that the cut found in pants these days, a slouchier knit or weave that is more forgiving on the figure, lends itself nicely to patterning, and I’ve seen a variety of body shapes look incredible in printed pants as of late. I really really hope that this trend isn’t reserved strictly to the “the summer of 2014,” because I don’t know about you, but I’d like to stretch the look, and my new favorite pants, into at least the summer of 2015! For now, I’m going to move the look forward and into the colder months with some long sleeve blouses and longer cardigan layers.
