Trendspotting: Printed Pants


Not since the sixties have we seen so many printed pants- jeans, pencils, palazzos and harem pants with florals, geometrics, batiks, and conversational patterns. The braver among you will mix prints. This requires intentional insouciance, an I-see-a-higher-aesthetic-connection- here-attitude. Others will tone down with solids. Whatever your choice, urban, suburban, or beach, choices exist with which to play.
