Have you jumped on the (printed) pant wagon yet?
I know they have been around for months now, but I’ve only just found the “right” pair for me.
I bought another pair a few months ago and while I still really like them, after a couple of wears, I realised that they were too big for me around the waist (but fine on the legs) and weren’t doing me any favours. Given their high waisted, slightly 80s styling, I found that the additional bulk around the waist was not a great look on me. So I went back to the drawing board and began the search again.
Then I called off the dogs. The hunt was over when I found these beauties at Portmans last week – the Zip Pocket Printed Pant, $79.95. And in good news, they come in 4 prints, including leopard print and black. I am wearing the Chevron print in size 12. I am thinking about going back for black. I reckon some of you could pull off the leopard print. (You know who you are!)
I think these pants work because the zip and the elasticised waist minimise bulk and create a more streamlined, flattering look.
I’m also loving the small Chevron print as it looks the business with a simple black or white tee with an accessory providing the pop of colour or with a bright block colour top, as in my last outfit.
I wore my new pants one day last week and loved them so much, I wore them the next day as well. That’s the sign of a winner. Then I had a play and styled them a few ways and this is what I came up with. What’s your pick? How do you style printed pants?

Are you a fan of the printed pant? Where did you find them? How do you style yours?
