Trend spotting: Printed pants

While Marc Jacobs and Missoni trail blazed African prints for 2010, the harem pant, though a staple for comfort was a death wish to fashion editors everywhere. Put the two together, and well, let’s just say it was not a must-have item if you (supposedly) knew anything about style. But the two trends were, and it was a trend reserved for the über cool niche market.

The printed harem pant hasn’t really had a proper moment, until now. Designers Basso & Brooke highlighted the trend for Spring/Summer 2011, and retails don’t seem to be ready to give up those loose-fitting trousers. And neither are those of us who learned how to play with it’s comfort and flexibility.

Considering my plaid pants of choice are fairly minimal, I would off-set it with a bright top. I fell in love with this Ann Yee blouse, the length and colour draw emphasis to the look.

Ah, here we go. The print trouser. Sass & Bide have a way with print, but if you are to steer in this direction, it`s best to look for a piece that doesn`t have too much going on.

The shoes. Of course, I picked Givenchy because you won`t always find a high-fashion designer for under $500. And here, I actually did, and, of course, suede black booties complete the look.
