Patterned pants are all the rage right now — and a stylish addition to any mom’s closet. Do not fear wearing a print on the bottom; the most important rule with any piece of clothing is to find a flattering fit.

A great pattern can carry an entire outfit, taking the challenge out of putting something cute together at a moment’s notice. Simply pair these pants with a blouse and heels or wedges for a night out with the girls. Or try them with a simple t-shirt and flat sandals for a play date.
