Crazy pants! Celebs have anointed a new summer trend

And you thought neon jeans were eye-catching. Now it’s all about patterned pants that you can see coming from a mile away—or more. Ikat prints. Tie-dyes. Big, bold florals. Loud geometrics. Celebrities are loving all of the above and we think we know why. First of all, they’re fun. Second of all, they spice up the classic star-off-duty look. Instead of opting for solid denim, a white tee, and a black blazer, a pair of wild printed pants livens up the whole deal. The key to making any pattern work, as the stars illustrate so well in the gallery below, is to choose a monochromatic top in a neutral or understated shade. Keep the shoes classic or bust out the stilettos. Think you’ll give this one a try? Let us know.
