Style Report: Patterned Pants

Winter wardrobes have a tendency to be just a little bit boring. If you are anything like me a couple of weeks into winter you are over the novelty of wearing your coats and boots and are longing to retire the constant greys and blacks and bring back the brights of summer.


Winter does not have to be this way, we can bring colour into the cold, grey days and brighten up your winter wardrobe with patterned pants that pop.

The new trend shuns the traditional black pants, tights or dark blue jeans that we so easily revert to during the colder months and replaces them with interesting printed pants that are easily paired with your heavy black jumpers, boots and jackets to give them a new lease of life.


The added bonus of this style is that they will keep you just as snug as more traditional choices, in fact the summery brights may even make you feel that little bit warmer by bringing a taste of the tropical to winter.


Whether you opt for animal, aztec or a flower print you cannot go wrong with this look.  For a look that is a little bit rocker chick opt for animal print pants, a pair of beat up converse and a worn in leather jacket.

If you like something a little more polished go for a print floral print, and pair with a boxy funnel neck knit and heeled ankle boots.


To unleash your inner boho babe you should pair aztec print pants with flat beat up ankle boots, a simple white knit and a faux fur vest.


So the next winters day you want nothing more than to curl up under a blanket brave the cold and bring a bit of bright to your day by pulling on a pair of patterned pants.
