Printed pants are all the rage for fall. Today I’m mad for plaid. It’s time to think about fall. One of the big trends I’m seeing is printed pants. While geographic prints and wild batiks are fabulous, I’m keen on the fresh appeal of plaid.

LOFT contacted me as part of the LOFTgirl program to try on and test out some fall pants. When I headed to the store, these great pants caught my eye. Check out the Juliet pant--cropped at the ankle and ready for fall.

Yep. They appeal to the inner prep. But they also have chic urban style. I decided to add a lot of black and some boho jewelry. It is almost fall so going a little darker seems about right. I think the key was the peep-toe bootie from Matt Benson.

I added a black sleeveless top and a LOFT necklace to make the pants look more downtown than preppy. Ribbon necklaces are so trendy right now. Head to toe ready for fall.

    I’m loving the plaid trend for fall. I really love a great gingham style shirt with an edgy leather pant. The plaid pants you’re rocking are amazing! They remind me of something I’d wear into brooklyn for the day.

    • momtrends

      Well this shoot was in Brooklyn–so obviously Brooklyn and plaid go together.

  • These pants are on my Fall wish list, love the tartan print! Super cute peep toe booties! Great photos.

    • momtrends

  • those pants are fantastic. I would even go for them if they came in a bold red too. Cue heading over to loft.com

    I love that you make me think about pushing my fashion boundaries. Patterned pants? Usually I’d totally shy away, but you’re inspiring me to go bold!

    • momtrends

      You are tall enough to ROCK printed pants. Try them!

  • This whole outfit is very city chic! I like the plaid pants, but the necklace and ankle boots are definitely my outfit faves!

    • momtrends

      Right! Flats would make this outfit well…flat…needs heel.

  • Printed pants are a really fun trend – these will be great to remix all fall!

    • momtrends

      Yep–and even into holiday.

    Although it’s coming into spring down here in the Southern Hemisphere I am loving some fall trends – especially the continued love of cognac or tan boots!!!
