Easy Summer Outfit: Printed Soft Pants, Tank and Sandals

A few weeks ago, I did a post featuring five ways to wear palazzo pants in preparation for springing this polarizing trend on the summer style challengers.  Turns out these fun girls were primed and ready when their time came to style printed pants.

Soft printed pants are a great alternative to shorts in the summer.  They’re super comfortable and make a bold style statement.

Here’s the sample outfit from the Summer Challenge.


Some, like me, chose to style printed shorts instead.  Here’s my take on the trend.

And here are a few of our brave challengers’ interpretations.

    Where did you purchase your shorts? They are super cute!

  • Hi Dani! I got them at H&M. I tried to link them up but couldn’t find this exact pair on their web site. Thank you!

  • Gosh your hair looks awesome! And all of the girls look great!

  • What a fun challenge! I love me some printed pants. Since the print has enough style and fun on its own, I typically pair them with basic tops in soft or neutral colors, like a chambray or white button down, to balance out the outfit. I do like how others incorporated more color, though!
