Though much of what's on trend this fall harkens back to the demure and classic feel of the 1950's, there's still a lot of room to play with statement making pieces. On the runways, pants wore the bulk of those bold prints, showing florals, ikats, stripes and polka-dots on every cut and length of trouser from tailored crop to loose harem.

A pair of head-turning trousers will compliment almost any type of top — whether you want to mix prints with a colorful blouse or tone it down with a neutral-colored knit. This season, you'll be hard pressed to find a pair of pants on the store shelf without a little bit of pop and flair, so if you're overwhelmed by all of the dazzling options, here are our picks for the seven best to try on now.
