Scarf print pants might be a style you have never considered or possibly never even heard of, but we are totally crushing on this statement-making trend. Typically fashioned from silk, scarf print pants feature the same prints you would usually see on a scarf but on a much bigger scale. From dainty to bold prints, scarf print is the newest fad to hit the fashion atmosphere and we recommend every CK girl give it a whirl. The best thing about scarf print pants are their versatility, they can be dressed down (they are just as comfortable as your favorite pajama pants) or dressed up for office attire or a fancy cocktail soirée. The array of silhouettes and colors these bottoms come in leave you with a massive arsenal of styles to choose from, so we put together three of our favorites for you to try.
Cropped styles are the perfect piece to transition you into the summer months. A high-waist fitted pair of cropped pants is a throwback to 1950s silhouettes and provides a modern take on a classic when worn in a scarf print. These baby blue, black and white scarf print pants from ASOS ($49.71) go perfectly with a tucked in white tank for a casual look that works for spring or summer, or dress it up with a blazer and some wedges. Be sure to keep the accessories to a minimum, a simple pair of stud earrings or a classic watch are all you need, in order to avoid overpowering the print.
Leggings seem to be an item dead set on maintaining their status as a staple in every girl’s wardrobe; we totally understand this considering their comfort level and ease of wear. Scarf print leggings are a new take on the leggings trend and provide a bright, bold option. When you don’t feel like getting all dressed up, throw on a pair of scarf print leggings and you will be instantly stylish. These medallion print leggings from Topshop ($40.00) are sure to get you noticed and will look great with an oversized tee or a men’s button down shirt (check out CK’S oversized shirt style tips here) cinched in the middle with a understated belt.
Wide-legged trousers are a must-have in every wardrobe and a pair in scarf print will be sure to spruce up items you already have in your closet. A wide-legged pant lends itself perfectly to playing dress up as well as offering optimal comfort if your aim is more casual. When choosing a trouser go for a high-waist style that will balance out a fuller leg and leave you looking smaller in the middle. We love this tropical pair of MSGM pants from ASOS ($737.37) that will have you waltzing right into summer. When wearing a wild print, it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit simple, we recommend pairing these pants with a neutral tank and a sky-high pair of platforms.
