Add a printed trouser to your capsule wardrobe

Etro pant blog

A printed trouser belongs in any executive and business capsule wardrobe.
It also belongs in a casual capsule wardrobe. It belongs in any smart wardrobe.

The printed pant adds another dimension to your capsule wardrobe.
And it’s an easy winner. A printed trouser adds a freshness and a totally new look
each time you wear them – because most people will only notice your top half.

By wearing different colours and textures on your top half, you’ll extend the variety
of your outfits. Choose from tailored blazers and jackets to deconstructed ones –
those with little or no lining or extra padding in the collar, shoulders and sleeves.

This slim-fit cropped trouser is in an easy navy/white print with a mix of patterns.
Its neutral hue means it will go with almost anything. Just dress it up or down accordingly.

For Business smart:
Wear it in monochrome 
with a simple white top and a tailored navy jacket.
Add wearable heels to add style and you’re ready.

Or add another colour in a jacket or top.
Retain black accessories for a more formal look.



CWC tip: don’t try to match navy accessories
– navies are notoriously difficult to harmonise –
opt for 
chic black business accessories instead.

For Business casual/Smart casual:
Change your accessories and/or add more colour.
This is the time to relax conventionality and opt for an informal blazer.
For colour, choose a Spring pastel or a Summer bright.
Wear tone-in-tone or in contrast.

For dressing down or off-duty:
The choice is yours as the printed pant is a master of disguises. 
Glam your pant up with heels or go utility with the ever popular denim jacket.

CWC tip: 
consider your whole look so that your Personal brand still

 ‘tells a story’. You want to look put together, not flung together!
