Printed Matter: 3 Chic & Easy Outfits With The Must-Have Pant

With warmer temps on lock, cutoffs and maxi skirts are stealing the show. We happen to love a good underdog story, so we're sticking to the trusty trouser! Not any ol' pair will cut it, though, so we've found the most kick-ass, funky-printed iteration to get you through the spring and summer.
WIth a pair of bottoms as solid (er, printed?) as these, you could basically wear them all day, every day. And, true to form, we've got a say on how to style these bad boys: From a casual, picnic-at-Dolores-Park look to something swanky and out-and-about-town, here are the best ways to rock these pants. Let’s get loud!

Look 1: Prints Prime For A Picnic
This laid-back look is practically made for all of S.F.'s grassy lounge areas — the only ingredient missing is the chic picnic blanket, of course! A simple sleeveless chemise pairs perfectly with these cut-out sandals, and a little cat-eye gives the 'fit a dose of retro glam. Keep the look daytime-ready with simple-yet-unique accessories.

Look 2: Concert Hopper
Let's get real — half the reason we love music-festival season is because of the fabulous after-parties. And, these printed pants are pretty much begging to attend! Throw on some funky metallic sandals, a sleek structured top, and that classic-yet-edgy leather jacket for an all-around electric feel.

Nothing like donning your fancy pants to spice up that 9-to-5 routine! Pair 'em with a solid silk top and playful little cardi for an office-appropriate look. Top it off with some hip two-tone oxfords and clear shades to keep you lookin' sharp.
