Don't be afraid of printed pants, they are on trend this summer and with so many different styles you are sure to find one that suits you. Pair them with a plain tee in a block colour and some metallic flats or sandals and you're good to go! Here are some of my favourite.
These are my dream pants from Sera Lilly curve, but they are sold out would you believe! Gasp! So I have ordered the jacket and will pray they come back into stock one day! Bright colours tick, 7/8 length and a slim leg, so much love. Such a fresh design and colour palette. Sizes 14-24.
I am fast becoming an Urban Precinct fan (stocked at Farmers). These are almost an alternative to jeans in summer, love how there is just a little black showing through so you can pop on your favourite black tee and be done, boom, outfit! Nice flat waistband and at $69.99 they are a great price. Sizes 8-18.
Stella 'Dixie' pant from Farmers sizes 8-18. A loose casual jogger style for lazy weekends and when you still want to look cute doing the school run. Black and white is super versatile as you can put any colour on top and still dress them up with a blazer and a heel on balmy summer nights when it is too hot for structured pants (or you don't want to look like you're going to the office!) $89.99 from Farmers.
ASOS Curve skinny ankle grazer pant $77, sizes 18-28. The 70's are back in a big way this season, but can be a difficult trend to pull off (flares and fringing and a bit of suede...hmmmm) but these pants are a lovely nod to the 70's while feeling modern fun and oh so summery. Would love to see them with a tie front button down shirt. The print isn't for the faint at heart but will certainly distract from anything you might like to go unnoticed- take the risk!
Budget Buy! Very wearable knit harem pant by Maya at The Warehouse, sizes 10-20. $25 and super easy to match the neutral tones to anything gold/grey/tan/black in your wardrobe. Oh yes, and did I mention they are $25!
Avoid lots of gathering around the waist if you are trying to flatten your tummy and big pockets which can widen your hips. The 7/8 length is perfect for almost everyone as it ends at your ankle, drawing attention to the slimmest part of your limb.
