I imagine some of you have been pretty skeptical of printed pants, I know I was. You might think that I am quick to adopt a new fashion trend, but that's not always the case. Printed pants were something I vacillated on, for the last year actually. I like the idea of them, but in reality I was very careful when buying them, because I wanted to be positive they would be flattering, and not to mention practical. I am a huge fan of printed trousers right now, even the ones I could never imagine wearing (like these celeb picks). I found these pants, like I find most of my clothes, hanging on a thrift store rack. At first I didn't know if I would like these pants, but they are great! They fit very nicely, and are super comfortable.

Trivia: Did you know the first method used for printing on fabric was woodblock printing? Woodblock printing goes back as far back as 220 AD, and most plausibly originated in China. However, printed fabric was not introduced to Europe until the 12th century. (Source: Wikipedia)
