The calendar says spring, but LA says nah. It’s been an uncharacteristically cold and rainy few weeks here in La La Land, but alas, fashion waits for no time zone or climate. New spring items have been flowing into stores for a while (and making their way into my carts), hinting at warmer, tanner days to come. While it’s not time to wear breezy frocks and sandals just yet, one spring trend that is super wearable now? Patterned pants. I’m talking gingham, checker, vertical stripe, and the like. Geometrical goodness in all colors, sizes and proportions. Lately I love to pair this style of trouser with a graphic tee, or another print for contrast. Whether you’re styling them with a pair of satin heels (like these, on a day when it’s not raining of course), or tucking them into warm boots and styling with a parka, they add a little something to your look when it’s just a bit too cold to try very hard. Shop my favorite patterned styles for spring below (including these Mango checker pants that are so comfy I’ve worn little else since getting them).
