Stop what you’re doing for a moment and send a thank you card to designers like Isabel Marant, Band of Outsiders, and Emilio Pucci for getting us all out of denim rut. These crafty creators thought beyond the basic jean and sent print after print down the runway for spring allowing us “normal folk” to get the comfy benefits of our favorite jeans, but with the added splash of style.

To play it off right and not get lost in the prints here’s a few rules to abide by:

  • Play it cool by pairing with a solid top
  • Go bold by mixing and matching with other prints in similar color schemes
  • Don’t let the pant go past your ankle
  • Wear them with a solid high heel to break up the print and elongate your leg
