Ms. Proper in Printed Pants
Its a new year and we must at all costs strive to try new things! At the risk of not being so dramatic, it does happen to sorta be my resolution. Thats where comes in my secret desire to work printed pants.
There are no fixed parameters as to what prints, just trust your heart and a few more tips that I will be dropping in the post and you’ll be looking at a whole new you!
If you’ve noticed, the prints are endless, ranging from small floral to large floral, tribal, geometric, animal and plain whacko. Choose from the wide-leg pants to skinny pants or cropped ones. Go ahead and pick out whatever fancies you but please make sure if your pants are printed, keep everything else, and I mean EVERYTHING else, solid colored. It can either be a simple black or white or you can venture into trying the fabulous solid neons available pretty much everywhere with your printed pants. Your tops, bags and shoes – all solids, which is actually great because then you can also throw on your biggest accessories without a second thought! It all works out so so well.
Some key pieces to start you off with and an idea of what you an coordinate with them.
