Yep, "party pants" are the latest micro-trend to take hold in the fashion world and they're every bit as fun as you're thinking. Whether it be the checkerboard print jeans from indie labels Holiday the Label and Lisa Says Gah or the metallic and shimmer-coated trousers from Scandi brands Saks Potts and Hosbjerg, we're defining this loud and bright pants movement as "party pants". Because, after all, if we can't go out to actual parties right now, we might as well channel the fun-loving vibe in our wardrobes.
We've been noting a rise in a maximalist aesthetic and an overall nod to the '60s in all things fashion and home decor right now. Fashion girls are especially keen on playing around with bright colors and loud prints, but instead of sticking to one pop of color in outfits, it's becoming more popular to mix and match shades and prints. And voilà, printed pants are the trend everyone's building their maximalist outfits around, pairing them with everything from bright sweaters to easy basics.
