How To Style Patterned Pants

Styling patterned pants is such a fun task! I love keeping a variety of fun patterned & colored pants in my wardrobe, especially for the spring & summer seasons. Having a variety of patterned pants in your closet offers endless outfit idea options with tanks, t-shirts, sweaters, blouses & more. Nothing beats styling a fun pair of patterned bottoms with a plain top or classic t-shirt. Whether it’s fitted or loose, you can play with the top. Tuck it in to the waistband of your pants or wear it like an oversized t-shirt! The best, easy, street-style outfit that’s easy to mix & match.

It’s so fun to mix patterns, but can seem pretty daunting at first. I love to pair a bold pattern with a more subtle one- both pieces that incorporate a similar color scheme! You can also pair a fun animal print, like a leopard print, with a floral or bold colored top. Wearing printed pants is a fun way to incorporate some color/fun into your personal style as well as open the door for more styling opportunities. Patterned trousers, wide leg pants, skirts, leggings or joggers are all amazing bottoms to add to your closet.


Investing in comfortable, fun pairs of patterned pants open up your eye to outfits and styles you may not have thought of before. In the spring & summer, I get such joy from creating looks based around colors, patterns , polka dots, floral, stripes & more! Not only are patterned pants such a fun way to style your looks, they provide confidence and joy! When you look good, you feel good. That’s why I keep a great variety of printed pants in my closet year-round for endless potential in my everyday looks- no matter the season!
