I love printed fabrics because they can transform a look into many different styles. For point of reference take a peek at these three different styles I created with a gingham print. Now, depending on who you’re talking to some may feel that gingham is synonymous with a preppy look.
But on the flip-side another might say that it’s more indie style. If you’re asking me, I don’t discriminate and think it easily goes both ways! Take for instance the above picture. If I switched out the tank for a solid black and wore a more classic shoe it would work well for a business look. Oh, and switch up the necklace with a simple drop style.
This look is my favorite because it’s edgier. I cuffed my pants so that I could wear the open-toed booties and wore my leather jacket and fedora to bring some drama.
I’d also like to note that sometimes wearing a printed pant can be intimidating for us ladies. We tend to think it accentuates areas we prefer not to. However, there’s a print out there for everyone. I like the black and white gingham because the black helps balance out the white, meaning it doesn’t necessarily broaden the hips and thighs. It also depends on the fit of the pant on you. I tend to go for a slim leg with a high-waist because it sits on the smaller part of my waistline. These pants are from Talbots and they’re called the Chatham and you can get them for 25% off right now!
Have fun discovering a printed pant that you love!
