To me, printed pants are one of those items I admire on other women but often struggle with styling on myself. I routinely ooh and aah over styles doused in punchy floral prints, darling polka dots, and classic stripes, but the moment I’m faced with piecing together a printed pants outfit that reads both playful and polished, I tense up as if it’s my first time getting dressed. Womp.
I’m not here to wallow, though. This season, I’m getting over my printed pants qualms (the same way I am with polka dots), and looking to the street style set to inspire five fresh outfits that are perfect for Spring and Summer and with a little something extra, to boot. From an unexpected and eye-catching mixed-print look to a Summery-sleek take on head-to-toe polka dots, these fashion-forward outfits have convinced me the look is one I desperately need to embrace, particularly when it’s too hot for jeans.
See the five looks ahead, all featuring affordable printed pants from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s with stylish extras to complete each outfit top to bottom.
