Ooze confidence and comfort in this season's favourite separate, the best printed trousers. Printed or patterned trousers might sound like a tricky trend but with the right styling - and figure flattering cut - everyone can pull off a pair! Choose a patterned pair to jazz up a block-coloured t-shirt or a neutral pair to go with your patterned tees and blouses. Winter's printed trousers aren't as scary as they seem - this season sees the return of well-cut tailoring embossed with intricate patterns that make a statement without looking too garish. They’re great for casual days spent shopping or can be glammed up for occasions and evening wear. The best printed trousers can also be worn throughout the seasons. The long length and flowing material mean that they can be worn with more layers in the winter or strappy top in the summer sun. The trousers are available in an array of colours, prints and patterns that can look elegant and fabulous wherever you wear them. They can be worn with sandals in the summer months, boots in the winter months or high heels on special occasions.
While sometimes new shapes and fashions like this can be daunting to wear to begin with. But read these styling tips and spend time trying on the trousers that you love the most and feel most comfortable in, and you won’t want to wear anything else! The high street is full of different styles and patterns, each shop with their own style and shape.
