Beyonce’s got on a different pair nearly every day, Taraji P. Henson wore a floral set to the Think Like a Man premiere, Jessica Alba’s in on it, and Rihanna and Amber Rose have also taken a liking to the trend.

What’s the look exactly? Printed pants.

Just in time for the spring, celebs have been opting for colorful patterns below the waist—from cropped pants with geometric patterns and flowers, to long pairs with skeleton bones, cartoons, and all sorts of combinations of bright stripes, circles, and hearts. So far, Amber Rose and Solange appear to be the only ones brave enough to wear the prints on top and bottom, but it still takes a certain amount of guts to leave the house in just the pants.

You definitely can’t hide in these bottoms which means your whole look has to be on point when you step out in these. The bolder the print, the more subtle the rest of your clothes and accessories should be—unless, of course, you’re going for that wild Nicki Minaj look. Some stars have looked fab in this trend but others need to go back to the drawing board.

    that’s the thing, most of the shorts look like underwear on me because of my thighs and butt. no matter how thin i don’t get that “white girl skinniness” i still end up looking muscular or thick or w/e. i refuse to wear shorts unless i get that gap between my thighs or else clothes look frumpy and gross.

    it drives me NUTS walking around and i feel my thighs starting a forest fire every step i take. the fabric rubbing together and causing those little lint balls ruin things for me soo much! i wish i could just get over it and wear whatever i want, but i don’t wanna be “THAT” girl showing cellulite and thigh flab rubbing together.

    I adore this look, however I don’t adore it on me. I have tried on tons of printed bottoms, from bright florals, to neutrals, to more muted options. I always end up feeling rather awkward and putting them back on the rack. Maybe it’s gonna take a few more tries for me. At this moment, the jury is still out.
