Bold prints are everywhere this season from good ole classic prints, like polka dots and paisley, to modern and fresh prints, like architectural geometric patterns and dramatic tribal designs.  We love eye catching prints on everything from handbags to blouses and we are so happy to see bold printed trousers have gained in popularity this spring. The best thing about this trend is that it is so multi-functional. You can opt for a demure and understated print for the office, while picking a crazy and funky print for a night out. The key to mastering this trend is all in how you balance the print within your outfit and how you style your printed trousers.

For an understated look that still makes the most of the fun printed trouser trend we suggest opting for pants in a classic print like paisley or hounds tooth and in a neutral hue.  Printed trousers like this are perfect for those times when you want to look professional and polished but still maintain a touch of your own personal style. For a funkier take on this trend think about opting for printed trouser with a zany geometric print in one of this spring’s hottest hues like emerald or lavender. Remember, that since these pants have a bold pattern and color, to keep the rest of your outfit complementary but simple, so you avoid looking overly busy.
