Generally our wardrobes all consist of a selection of trousers in dark or neutral colours alongside several pairs of jeans but this summer the catwalks have brought us something different. Designers such as Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Diesel Black Gold and Gucci this season have decided to give you lots of opportunities to experiment by introducing bright and bold prints into the trousers of their collections. So why not check out Boudi and your favourite fashion designers, be inspired and pick up some new statement pieces?
When incorporating this trend into your collection it is just a matter of what prints and which colours to choose! Bird print has been a popular choice in women’s fashion over the last few seasons and now AMI have brought it into the male wardrobe with black bird printed trousers!
Even the high street have picked up on this particular trend, Topman for instance has bright prints which are perfect for summer. ASOS have taken the printed trend and injected it onto our staple jeans with denim printed trousers available in a choice of prints and patterns! If birds or printed denim aren’t really your thing there are plenty of other options available, checks, stripes and florals are all over most look books for summer 2013 all of which offer an array of inspiration when it comes to how to wear the printed trousers and how to accessorise for both formal and casual occasions.
When it comes to outfits featuring printed trousers you have two main options available to you, either carry on going bold! Take the prints featured in the trousers and clash them with a printed men’s designer t-shirt, bear in mind clashing prints is always difficult and could very easily go wrong so take some time to plan your prints ahead of time! Lanvin’s collection for Spring/Summer 2013 offers a variety of matching shirts/jackets and trousers so if you want to go all in with the same print you have that option available! Finally, you could choose to leave all the focus on the prints of the trousers and team with a neutral shirt or a colour block t-shirt. Sometimes simple is the most effective way of creating an impact! The great thing about prints is once you have chosen the right combination of colours you have such a wide variety of outfits open to you, more versatile than you may initially expect!
