I’m not sure who made up the “rule” that curvy girls must wear dark, solid bottoms but I’m here to tell you that it’s totally FALSE.

I am a firm believer in wearing clothes that fit and flatter your figure however that doesn’t mean you must stick to dark colors or stray away from patterns and bold colors.

The most important thing about wearing  any pants at any size is the FIT.  That means you should be able to breathe with the pants on, the pants should not be pushing into your sides (creating the “muffin top”), NO CAMEL TOE, and most importantly you should be comfortable in them.  The pants fitting properly and you being comfortable should be your only rule when wearing pants and jeans.

Because colorful and printed trousers and jeans tend to make a loud and bold statement try to pair them with a solid top (if the jeans/pants are printed) or a more subtle toned top (if the jeans/pants are a bright color).

Most importantly HAVE FUN with it – Colors and prints add so many dynamics to ones wardrobe and can really add some flavor to your style.

My favorite’s this season have to be red trousers and floral skinnie’s!

What about you ladies, have you incorporated any printed or colorful pants to your wardrobe?
