The printed trouser. A chic alternative to the everyday pair of jeans. It’s a trend which has been around for a little while now, but it seems that people are still a little afraid to wear it.

I was speaking to a lady recently who liked the idea of printed trousers, but was too afraid to try a pair, for fear of looking as though she’d stepped out of the house in her nightwear. I think that it’s like anything else; if styled right, they can look great, so I decided to come up with a few tips to try and convince her to give them a go.
