April may turn showers into flowers, but it’s also the month to turn boring basics into colourful statements like these bold printed pants. We know you fashion risk-takers are sick of wearing dark coloured and dull bottoms, and we agree. We think everyone needs to own at least one pair of colourful pants in a pretty, unique pattern this season, and you can copy this look from the D&G Spring 2012 runway easily and affordably.
We showed you how to wear spring’s coloured denim trend, but the look we really adore right this second has print, an effortless vibe and no shortage of individuality. This look works for work, play, a party or an evening out as a white button-front blouse like this Collection By Giada Forte one brings simplistic glamour. Quirky aqua scarf-print pants like these River Island trousers are an affordable version of the D&G look from the secondary line’s last ever collection. Wear printed pants in luxe fabrics and looser, trouser silhouettes, as skin-tight florals or patterns are unflattering to almost all body shapes and can end up looking cheap.
Mixing prints and colours with bright shoes and bags may seem risky, but it’s all in the colour palette. These punchy Chinese Laundry wedges and citrusy Elliot Lucca clutch both have tones of the same sea-blue and they work together. The minimalist white blouse works as an anchor to the items-any solid neutral will do this to aid a busy outfit. Gilded add-ons like this gold BCBgeneration necklace give that final whimsical touch to a modern gypsy-chic look.
