For once, it seems that the off-the-runway trends are matching up with the on-the-runway trends at the same time. Prints are huge this season. But the most common manifestation of these is through patterned pants. All throughout the runway collections, from sporty lines like Alexander Wang to feminine versions like Erdem, the pants are being seen. The three main styles are large flowers, small flowers, or geometric, repetitive patterns. I used to stray away from patterned pants but I bought a pair this summer and am now obsessed. They’re a brilliant way to make an outfit interesting. They also can be worn so many ways — either with just a plain white tee or with a whole (purposely) mismatched ensemble.
