Wearing a pair of printed flowy pants will make you feel like you are on vacation even if you haven’t left your neighborhood. With a comfy elastic waist, wide-legged patterned pants, often referred to as beach pants, have a hip, bohemian vibe. They are oh-so-easy to style, and look fabulous with a simple tee or tank along with a pair of strappy sandals. Their lightweight fabric makes them an excellent packing companion and they can do double-duty as a beach cover-up.
This season I have been seeing a lot of printed pants in summer catalogs and on retailers’ websites, so it’s a great time to pick up a pair while the selection is plentiful. They are available in many lively patterns, including bold florals, sophisticated geometrics and fun tie dye.
