5 Ways to Style Loud, Colorful, Printed Pants

I own several pairs of loud, colorful, printed pants. If you have been reading this blog for a while and/or follow me on Instagram, you probably know that my wardrobe consists of a lot of neutrals and that there are many solid, muted colors. Nevertheless, I'm sometimes drawn to a loud print. But, to be honest, I have to be in the mood to wear them. And when I wear them, I usually keep the rest of the outfit neutral. Here are some examples of how to keep loud pants from being too loud (if you are used to a more neutral wardrobe):

1. Pick one color in the print and match your top to it

 




5. Combine floral pants with a polka dot blouse, a denim jacket & a neckerchief - this combination is a bit more interesting as there is some pattern mixing going on with the floral print, polka dots and the neckerchief. I think it works since the floral pants have both blue and orange in them.

Even though I have to be in the mood to wear loud pants, I'm often drawn to them. I wouldn't mind having any of these in my closet...


Questions: Do you have "loud" pants? If so, how do you style them? Do you like any of the "loud" pants above?


Be well,
Andrea

  3. I love the J.Crew pants, but, sadly, they are sold out online. I'll have to look for them in a store.

  4. Yes to loud pants! Although, then I feel like I have to try and remember who's seen them as to not wear them too many times with the same people, hehe.

  5. I have a couple pairs of bright pants, and like you, I tend to pair them with solids and let them be the statement piece! :)

  6. The louder the better for me Andrea! I love all of these and think your masterclass is a great guide for the more timid who want to try these out too.

    Wishing you a lovely week.

    1. Thanks, Anna! And, yes, pairing printed pants with neutrals is definitely a great way for those of us who don't wear a lot of loud clothing to be comfortable in them. But there is certainly a lot of pattern mixing that could be done... I know you could come up with some awesome combinations!

  7. I don't own any loud print pants, I just feel a bit uncomfortable in them. I love them on everyone else though! I have one pair with a small, subtle print on them that I wear when traveling, but that's about it. Your styling tips are fabulous.

  16. I don't blame you. They require a certain upbeat-ness in a mood on a given day to wear them. Would love to connect at http://the-wardrobe-stylist.com/2017/06/05/cardio-vs-strength-training/

  17. Would love to know which of the outfits above is your fav? I love, love, love that last one. Which might be the 'loudest' because of the bright kerchief and patterned top but I just love it. I don't know why we thought for years that pattern mixing was a no-go. I am so glad we've loosened up the rules. You look adorable.

  19. I like the look with the floral pants and a bright Tee. It's so much more fun than pairing them with the typical white, gray or black Tee. Great outfit inspirations. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.
