Printed trousers are everywhere. You could say they are having a ‘fashion moment.’ For good reason too, they are the perfect piece to put you in the springtime mood and there is a pair for every SS12 trend – florals, havana, pastel, futuristic…the list goes on.
They are instantly chic with a plain tee, or make like Mary (Katrantzou, obviously!) and clash your prints for ‘fun-time-on-trend-print-on-print-dressing’.

The holy grail of statement trousers come from Stella MccCartney’s 2012 cruise collection and I am completely and utterly in love with them. These silk trousers are 24 hour printed perfection: dressed down with a simple tee and black boots for off-duty cool and for the evening pair with heels and a luxe tux.
I. Just. Want. Them.

Unfortunately, at £665 methinks these trousers will be in my dreams, rather than my wardrobe! My much more reasonably priced tropical fix came from River Island and are the perfect thing to brighten up anyone’s morning.
