Pant Trends You Need to Try This Season
Spring is here, and we're starting to dig into the warm weather sections of our wardrobes! But with trends changing every year, some closets need a bit of a refresh. This season is all about new beginnings, after all, so why not start with your clothes? To get that fresh look with your style, start from the bottom with, well, bottoms!
So what pants are popular for spring 2020? We've got the answer. There are plenty of pant trends you need to try this season, so do some spring cleaning and make room for these pants for spring.
1. Vintage Jeans
If you're all about that denim, get ready to rock jeans and jeggings this season. Spring pants in 2020, in particular, are about a vintage vibe, and jeans are a great way to add the retro look to your refreshed wardrobe. Thanks to the popularity and versatility of jeans, they've been around for a while, so you have plenty of options when it comes to vintage styles. Add denim with these features to get the retro glam look:
- Acid wash
- Distressed options
- Mom jeans
- Boyfriend jeans
- High-waisted styles
The goal is to get jeans that look thrifted from decades ago, but with vintage being such a fashionable pants trend, you can easily find new styles that throwback to the past. Choose your retro-style jeans based on what you want to accentuate in your look. Mom jeans give an '80s and '90s vibe that highlights your waist, while distressed options can accentuate your thighs or draw attention lower, depending on where the rips and tears are.
Jeans in the spring are a great base to start with for your seasonal outfits. Thanks to the versatility of denim, you can wear just about anything with vintage jeans. Floral tops add a feminine spring touch to these often masculine pants, while graphic tees lean into the retro vibe.
2. Flared Styles
So retro is in, but what if you aren't big into jeans? Lucky for you, plenty of other pants get the vintage vibe with flared bottoms. Spring pants in 2020 emphasize drama at the calves and ankles with anything from bell bottoms to more subtle accents. And because these options are in pants, you'll find a variety of materials and patterns, so try:
- Vertical striped pants to elongate your legs
- Abstract patterned pants that can distract from specific features
- Solid black pants for an all-around neutral option
These options are as versatile as they are comfortable. The flowy fabric of flare pants will keep you cool on warmer days in the season, and the length keeps you warm on spring mornings that can get a bit chilly. Wear them around the house while spring cleaning or dress them up a bit for a fun spring brunch look. Add a three-quarter-sleeve top that's also a bit loose to match the look of your bottoms, and accessorize if you need a less casual outfit.
3. Wide-Leg Pants
Get even more drama than flared pants with wide-leg options. These pants trends have been on the rise with styles like culottes, and it's no wonder. Wide-leg pants can have the look of a skirt with the functionality of pants, perfect to dress up or have a bit of fun with.
These styles are ideal for spring because they often come in cropped versions that are excellent for warmer weather. If you like how the flowy feel of flared pants keeps you cool, you'll love the comfort of wide-leg pants.
Wide-leg pants are also a creative way to bring more balance to your silhouette, especially those that are wider on the top with broad shoulders. If you go with dramatic wide-leg bottoms, wear a more fitted top that won't compete with the drama of your wide-leg pants. Add a statement necklace to help bring some balance without overwhelming your figure in fabric.
4. Animal Prints
Trendy styles get a bit wild for spring pants in 2020. Animal prints bring fun to anything from flare styles that are already on-trend to sleek skinny-fit pants. No matter what fit you choose for your wardrobe, check out these animal prints for some variety:
- Snake patterns are edgy and modern.
- Leopard prints are bold.
- Cheetah prints are classic.
- Abstract styles are subtle, yet striking.
Animal prints are easiest to pair with solid colors, but that doesn't mean you can't have as much fun with your tops as you do with the bottoms in your outfit. Off-the-shoulder shirts add a flirty feel to your animal print pants, and sleeveless tops are great for warmer spring days. When you wear animal print pants, you're often drawing attention to your legs, though smaller prints can work to camouflage certain assets, so feel free to use your top to accentuate your shoulders and other features.
5. Plaid and Checked Prints
If you aren't into animal prints, but still want some pattern in your pants for spring, check out checked prints. Plaid and similar patterns are perfect for adding a more professional touch to your spring outfits, but with the pattern on-trend, you can even wear these styles while going out or staying in.
Pair any of those styles with your favorite solid-color top, and you've got a fabulous spring outfit. Plaid and checked print pants can either draw attention to your legs or slim them, depending on how busy and small the pattern is. Want to accentuate your hips and legs? Go for wider plaid patterns for a dramatic touch. Looking for a sleek and professional style? Choose neutral colors in Glen plaid or woven-inspired patterns that'll be a subtle accent in your outfit.
6. Faux Leather
Want some drama without the bold prints? If you're wondering what pants are popular other than patterns, check out faux leather. The material combines a retro touch with the dramatic look that's in most spring pants in 2020. Textured faux leather enhances that vintage feel, especially in natural colors like brown or tan, but for a sleek and modern feel, you can't go wrong with black faux leather leggings.
Leather bottoms are perfect for a night out, especially paired with animal print tops or sleek solid colors. Choose a dark pair of pants and a print top to draw attention away from your hips and legs, or keep it neutral and solid up top to show off your assets on the bottom. Either way you rock it, this style is sure to impress and be on-trend this spring.
7. Jumpsuits and Rompers
So as you wonder what pants are popular for spring this year, you may want to venture into styles that go a bit further than pants. Rompers and jumpsuits have a vintage feel and are more convenient than pants, since you get a whole outfit in one piece. They're great to wear for formal occasions, brunch or everyday wear when you need something simple to put on other than a dress.
Jumpsuits often have an elongating effect, which you can emphasize with a pair of heels. Add a cardigan if the weather is a bit chilly or wear short-sleeved or sleeveless jumpsuits and rompers to stay cool in warmer weather. Accessorize with a necklace or other jewelry to glam up your look, or keep it simple based on the occasion. Either way, you'll look fabulous rocking this spring trend.
