Remember when vibrantly colored jeans first appeared in stores? They looked really fresh and trendy. Now, though, you may be sick and tired of those cranberry, cobalt and mint bottoms. So what’s next? Prints, of course. For late summer and fall, the look is going toward a hybrid of geek chic and punk rock in plaids, checks and houndstooth prints of every scale. In so many tones and styles, it’s going to be easy to find a look that fits right into your comfort zone. Pair these statement-making bottoms now with sandals and summery tops, then when fall’s color temperatures hit, shift over to chunky sweaters and boots for an instant seasonal update.
