Stop getting stuck in the print rut by applying these easy-to-wear print ensembles.  Here are 3 no-fail rules when wearing printed pants.

We love the combination of the slim construction and the fun print on these denim jeans.  Polished tops and shoes keep the jeans from feeling too casual.

1. Solid Tops in Neutrals
When in doubt, go for a solid black or white top as they go with virtually everything.  See what other neutrals you have in the closet and find the most flattering shade to pair with the print.  For instance, this cream blouse is another easy top match.  Finish the look with black mary janes or add a pop of color with bright accessories if you wish.

2. Go Tonal
Wear the rest of the outfit in similar colors in one shade from the print.  It’s sensible and easy since you don’t have to find exact shades.  For this outfit, we chose a blue hue as the main color for a tone-on-tone look.  This ladylike blue peplum top and these colorblock shooties in black/blue pull the whole outfit together.

3. Print-on-Print
A bit tricky to pull off yet the most playful.  There isn’t a golden rule when it comes to print-mixing but here is one easy trick – team prints in similar colors (at least one color) for a classy and current look.  This graphic print top is perfect with navy sleeves and a splash of red that instantly perks up the printed denim.  The pointed slip-ons keep it sophisticated.
