If you’re tired of colored jeans, then the patterned pant is one to try. Patterned pants can be worn in a casual and relaxed way or more dressed up for the office or a night out. Here are some tips to make patterned pants work for you.
Pick style that works for your body type
Slim cropped ones (seen above) look great on most body types. Make sure they aren’t too tight, but aren’t too baggy either. For the most flattering fit, you want them to just skim the body.
Keep in mind the scale of the pattern
If you are petite you need a smaller pattern so it doesn’t overwhelm your frame. If you are taller then you can go bigger. Just make sure the pattern is in proportion with your body.
Be aware of where the pants end
For a cropped version you want them to hit right above your ankle. Then pick cute shoes to wear with them.
Keep top and accessories minimal
Since patterned pants are a statement piece, keep your top and other accessories more low-key. You don’t want to overdo it, but don’t be afraid to try a bit of pattern mixing like I did with cool polka dot loafers.
