Would You Wear It? Printed Pants

how to pull off this patterned look

By Style Girlfriend | Last Updated: Oct 18 2016

If you’re a regular around these parts, chances are good you’ve got a pair of colored chinos in your closet. Burnt rust, wintergreen, plum raisin. Your bottom half style is out there, but elegantly, understatedly so.

Which is great. Y’all know I’m pro-colored pants. But then I saw this picture of TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie in GQ and thought – now that is out there.

Why it Works

Does he look kind of kooky? Maybe, but I’ll definitely remember his style, and besides, check out how happy he looks! With a research group of 1, I’d say it’s unequivocally true and statistically sound to make the claim that “Wearing crazy pants makes you happy.”

Wear it Well

Create a cool, patterned focal point of your outfit with printed pants, keeping the rest of your look simple. Any of the pants below paired with a simple white t-shirt and slides, and you’re out the door with a smile on your face.
