I love printed pants like Oprah loves bread
Umm… hi everybody! My name is Esta and I love prints – especially on pants.
I know there are a million rules about how to wear prints, which is why so many people steer clear of them, but I think prints separate those who look good by playing it safe from the fashion risk takers who set the trends. I mean, let’s compare Jennifer Aniston to Rihanna – get where I’m going with this?
Whether you’re mixing prints or bottom heavy it seems like someone is ALWAYS making rules about how to pull of prints. My least favorite “rule” about wearing prints? You can’t wear them more than once because it becomes obvious you’ve repeated an outfit. Who cares?
I found these black, pink and white floral printed pants during a last minute hunt for a party outfit two months ago. I stumbled into Express Factory and found these along with a complimentary top, which I’ll be showing in a future post. Since it’s one of my cardinal rules to only purchase items I can wear three different ways, I’ve been experimenting with different outfits I can create using these pants.
Here I’m rocking a simple “dressed up casual” look by pairing the pants with a white tee and my favorite purple pumps. I feel like this is a great look for when I don’t know what to wear and have a short amount of time to put something together. If I want to jazz it up a bit, I can simply add fun jewelry.

Wearing my items three different ways is especially important this year, since I’m embracing a “less is more” attitude towards life. I want to maximize my wardrobe by scaling down to a few pieces that can be worn multiple ways.
Stay tuned for more ways to rock these floral printed pants!
