NordstromPrinted pants have emerged as a bold spring trend from fashion's hottest designers -- but let's be honest:
Most of us don't have $600 on a trend that will likely be here today and gone tomorrow.
That means you have two options.
1. Skip this trend entirely.
2. Find some inexpensive copycat pants that keep the spirit of the expensive designer look without leading you to financial ruin.

If you want to opt for the latter choice this spring -- good news!
I've done the work for you and found some excellent printed pant options that will still allow you to pay your mortgage.
Bergdorf GoodmanBefore we get to your less-expensive options, let's take another look at a designer take on the trend. For just $250, these Milly printed pants from Bergdorf Goodman can be all yours!
J.CrewI'm not really sure how I feel about this look, but if I were to try it, I'd be partial to these Cafe Capris in floral taffeta (J.Crew, $99.99 on sale). I know, still expensive, but they are half-off.

TopshopI also think these kooky swan print pants (Topshop, $76) could work on the right girl. They're notice-me pants ... without being too in your face about it.
Pink MascaraLooking for a print with some edge? Check out these Fluxus Bebop pants (Pink Mascara, $62 on sale), originally $119. For those of us with a lot of black in our wardrobe, these could really update our options.

Forever 21On a budget? Check out these patterned pants (Forever 21, $19.80).
Personally, this is one of those trends I'm going to have to see on myself before I decide whether or not to try it out.
What about you? Will you wear printed pants this season?
