Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

People usually associate trousers with boring, basic office attire, but a lot of the pants that are in stores and on runways now are anything but basic. One can find trousers in virtually any color and print imaginable these days! Some prints are more subdued, while others are very bold and bright. There is a printed trouser out there for every style and preference.

Printed trouser pants are a modern take on a classic shape and style, and add pizzazz to any outfit. This is a piece that can take you from a totally put-together and professional daytime look to a sophisticated night out ensemble. Keep reading and I'll show you how to style a pair of printed trousers for both class and a night out:

Printed Trousers: Class

Product Information: Pants, Sweater, Shoes, Peacoat, Tote, Necklace, Nail Polish, Eyeliner

Create a sophisticated, Audrey Hepburn-esque daytime look by pairing these pink floral printed trousers with a black turtleneck sweater and a pair of black ballet flats. I love the look of a necklace layered over a turtleneck sweater, so add a long tassel necklace for a touch of embellishment. A black peacoat maintains the classic feel of this outfit. This ensemble would look fabulous with a black cat eye and dark purple fingernails. Lastly, pick up on the gray in the pants and add shine by grabbing a metallic tote.

Printed Trousers: Night Out

Product Information: Pants, Tank, Blazer, Heels, Bag, Nail Polish, Lipstick

Create a cool and sophisticated look for a night out with these floral trousers by keeping the rest of the pieces sleek and simple. A sheer white tank top and a black fitted blazer make the pants the focus of the outfit. Minimal high-heeled sandals in a shiny pewter hue lends some shimmer to the ensemble. A white box clutch with geometric details keeps everything modern and sleek. For the finishing touch, play off the pink and purple in the pants with a matte hot pink lip and deep red nails.
