E! News may think that Jessica Alba’s Erdem bright, colorful pants are a catastrophe, but we at MO think they are awesome.

Pants with graphic prints are once again a big fashion trend for Spring/Summer 2012. This trend has been on and off the runways in past seasons, and designers continue to faithfully incorporate prints into their collections. Spectacular pieces were seen on the runways of Vivienne Tam, 3.1 Philip Lim, Peter Som and Altuzarra.

Bold prints and bright patterns embellish capris, harems and wide legs, which instantly updates the trend for this year.

The new prints include tropical birds, gigantic florals and funky graphics with a nod toward retro style resort wear, all of which will ensure that you never look like a wallflower while wearing  these statement pants.

The S/S 12 collections have a wide variety of chic prints that you can seamlessly incorporate into your existing wardrobe.

Tone the look down a notch, if you wish, by choosing a neutral colored top to complete your outfit. Black and white printed pants create an on-trend look when paired with a bold vibrant color.

So, do yourself a favor and make a statement by wearing one of our not for the faint-hearted pant picks!
