Jessica Alba recently stepped out to hit the pumpkin patch with her family in printed pants and a casual white t-shirt. Looking awesome while doing mundane activities is nothing new for the actress and mother of two, and we love how daring she is when it comes to style. Particularly her choice in trousers: Girlfriend isn't shy of wearing bright, printed pants.
Kristen Stewart was spotted at Paris Fashion Week wearing graphic-print bottoms (and a bright yellow jacket, just in case you hadn't noticed her already from the scrum of journalists surrounding her). And our favorite pair of stylin' sisters -- Beyoncé and Solange Knowles -- wear brightly colored bottoms as casually as if they were sweatpants. The lesson here is that it's time to work printed pants into your wardrobe rotation, stat.
Unless you're a fashion daredevil, proceed with caution. Printed pants are loud and proud, so be sure to keep the rest of your look sleek and streamlined. Pair a simple tee, structured blazer or dark turtleneck with the bottoms. It is also smart to consider your shape and make sure the pants you choose are right for your silhouette, since the pattern will call attention to your lower body. Not sure about this trend? Try a pair of jeans with a subtle printed pattern in dark blue or light grey.
