This year is all about prints and trousers. While most summers in New York reflect long flowing dresses and feminine prints, this year I'm leaning towards comfortable yet chic style. Whether it's downtown fashion or uptown high-fashion, the sleek and slender trousers are likely to fit right into your wardrobe.
We are absolutely in love with this trend since it is so versatile and easily accessorized. For example, you can easily wear a pair of trousers with a sophisticated print to your office job and simply change your earrings, bag, or heels and you are magically transported to out on the town New York high-fashion. If you don’t believe us, take a look at some of the fashions on the runway this year. Many of them reflect a certain masculine mystique while not forgetting their feminine counterpart.
Another bonus to the trouser trend is how comfortable this particular clothing item is. You can bounce around the city effortlessly while staying comfortable and trendy. Certain prints add a unique depth and focal point for your outfit that can draw attention away from any undesirable areas.
A few simple tips for adding your own personal style to this trend include pairing a striped trouser with a crop top or a slim fitting blouse. The accessories you choose to wear with this high-end fashion trend will either make it office ready, or fun and flirty for a night on the town. Fedoras, Hipster sunglasses, and small clutch handbags are all perfect accessories for printed trousers.
