Trend rant: Printed pants are painful

I wanted to LOVE the tropical colors and tribal-inspired prints that are all the rage in spring styles for pants and skirts.

Then I tried a pair on.

Let's step back and consider the wisdom of drawing attention to the body region where most women have something to hide. Because there's nothing more flattering than a tight fit -- paired with a wild hue -- on my fat (fill-in-the-blank).

Who's bright idea was this trend? And how fast can we make it go away?

Mind you, I'm on the tall and slender side, although like most women past the college years, I hate to see myself in a bikini. I can pull off a fairly wide range of cuts and fits. And I can assure you, this trend stinks.

Any print defenders out there? Speak up ...
