TRENDSETTER | Bold/Printed/Flashy Pants

With my bodyshape (short legs to be more specific) I didn't dare to wear flashy pants for a long time only plain ones and skinny jeans but now I've realised they can be an option for me too supposing I choose and pair them properly. On supermodels everything looks perfect, they can put on whatever they/or designers want so they don't need to think about it. However, not everybody has that bodyshape so maybe we need some advice how to pair these beauties.

Under the photos I collected my experiences and advices.
Take them and stick out of the crowd.


Instructions for bold patterns:

- wear them with plain items
- put on heels to make your legs look skinnier and longer
- let them be the highlight of your outfit
- they look the best with neutrals
- watch for the patterns - you don't want to look like an elephant

Do you have flashy/bold pants? How do you pair them?
Please share it in the comments!

I think printed jeans work for short legs as well. A friend of mine is under 1.60 m tall and for her colorful pants work great, I think it's about matching, just as you noted :)
