Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s known for her downtown denim looks, but she recently switched it up by slipping into a pair of printed silk pants, a standout trend on the spring runways. While out in Los Angeles earlier this spring, the model’s Chloe Drawstring Short Sleeve Blouse ($795) and Isabel Marant paisley Sydney Printed Silk-Gauze Wide-Leg Pants ($705) evoked a laid-back bohemian vibe, while her Saint Laurent Small Duffel 6 Bag ($2150) in Grey and Brian Atwood Temptation Heels ($875) in Camel Leather was a sophisticated final touch to her look. Silk printed pants are an effortless way to achieve daytime elegance, so click through our slideshow for our picks and what to style them with.
