Q. I keep seeing printed pants everywhere. Is this going to carry through to the spring? How can I wear them without looking like a fashion victim?

But the best way to wear them in the real world is to pair them with monochromatic pieces and let the printed pants be the focal point of your look.
We’re seeing everything from printed palazzo pants to cropped skinny jeans, the latter being the most wearable in my opinion. Here are some looks for inspiration and some of our favorite printed skinnies to wear now and in the spring:
