Your travel wardrobe doesn’t have to be all black and neutrals! Find out how to mix in some printed pants and bottoms to add fun and variety to your look!

 


Printed Pants and Bottoms

Written By: Niki Landry


 

In the quest for the perfect packing list, it’s easy to opt for solids and neutrals to get the most wear out of every piece of clothing.

Buying wardrobe staples is essential to building a great travel closet, but sometimes it’s nice to throw in a punch of color or bold pattern. The great part of having a well-thought out closet is that once you have the basics, adding a trendy or colorful piece of clothing is simple.

 

 

Below are printed pants, skirts, and shorts to help mix up your capsule travel wardrobe.

If you’ve got all of your basic bottoms covered, maybe a graphic print slim leg pant should be your next purchase. To change up a suitcase full of solids, you can easily add these chic bottoms into your existing travel wardrobe.

These combined with a solid top makes for a simple yet stylish outfit. Pair with sandals for a casual day outfit, or change into block heels or ballet flats for a night out.

 

These are the best travel pants for women!

Wide Leg

The most popular pants on the planet right now are skinny leg silhouettes, but they’ve been at the top of the clothing world for a while now.

If you’re looking to change up your pant game, wide leg bottoms can be a nice way to free your legs. These loose-fitting pants also can give you a reason to try a little print on your bottom half!

Wide leg pants look best combined with fitted tops; they even allow you to bare a little more skin up top. The volume on the bottom can help to balance the overall outfit. Together, they create a look that will take you beautifully into your spring holiday.

Leggings

Most people tend to feel more comfortable taking risks with their athletic wear. Yoga pants are fair game to try new patterns and colors that we sometimes avoid in our everyday wardrobe. If you’re tired of basic black leggings, then this style may be for you.

It’s easy to combine any of these options with a white top or pull one of the many colors from the pattern and incorporate it into your shirt.

Just remember, leggings are not pants and are best used for outdoor and fitness activities or as layers when it’s cold.

Long Skirts

 

AFRM Kiwi Midi Skirt

 

For some reason, it’s easier for me to pull off a patterned skirt than pants. I also love the look of a long skirt, midi or maxi, with a simple top and slide-on sandals. In my opinion, this combo is one of the best and easiest travel outfits.

Longer skirts are also great when you want to keep covered and modest, but don’t want to sacrifice personality or style. The piece above is easy to incorporate into an overall neutral clothing palette!

Short Skirts

If you’re worried about an allover pattern overpowering you (sometimes petite women can have this issue) shorter length skirts may be a great alternative.

They give your outfit just the right dose of interest without making you feel engulfed by a bold pattern. Animal print is always a favorite, especially for the springtime. Pair with a crisp white top and you’re all good to go.
