As we mentioned, one trend that was ubiquitous on Fall 2011 runways this past NYFW was… printed pants.

So. We all know that just because something is on the runway doesn’t mean it’s a good idea (or we learned that in high school and those photos will haunt us until we die). Still. We’ve rounded up some printed pants from across the internet. You’ll have to judge for yourself whether they’re worth the risk. The garish, distracting, bottom-heavy risk.
