Trends on Trial: Floral Pants

floral pants

Floral pants: beloved by fashion bloggers, and… it’s really just the fashion bloggers, isn’t it? Oh, and elderly people, of course. Because, let’s face it, it’s really easy to venture into “little old lady” territory when you’re wearing a nice pair of floral slacks, isn’t it?

Still, floral pants are currently being touted as a “hot trend”, and thankfully not ALL of them are “slacks”. We doubt we’ll be seeing many little old ladies squeezed into a pair of super-skinny floral jeans, for instance, although honestly, nothing would surprise the jaded eyes of The Fashion Police.

Will we be seeing YOU in them, though? The pants in question range from the aforementioned skinny jeans to a slightly looser silhouette in the form of capri pants, crops and – shudder – we’ve even seen some floral harems. And we hope to never, ever see them again. The prints, meanwhile, are just as varied, and you can pick up floral pants in everything from the lurid colours we’re more used to associating with bermuda shorts (and, again, old people), to soft pastels.
Will you be wearing floral pants this season? Tell us in the comments!

    ICK. No. I don’t like florals in general, but floral pants are really offenders to my eyes!

    The only thing I could see being even vaguely acceptable for me, personally, would be floral capris, depending entirely on pattern and color.

    Not just no, but HELL NO! I’ve seen these and had a strong desire to purge them with fire (along with their irritating wearers, in some cases.)

    I was gonna say I would wear the purple/black ones on the right, but then I found out they’re not even jeans at all, but leggings… NO way there. Maybe floral jeans short would be palatable though.

    No, I won’t be wearing them. The patterns are just too busy and too 90’s for some reason.

    I don’t mind them, actually, as long as two conditions are met: a) they actually are in a pant shape I would normally wear, and b) they are worn with solids, not other patterns.

    I really don’t like these….I’ve seen them in all the high street window displays recently and it certainly hasn’t made me want to venture in! Shorts maybe, trousers no.

    I actually like them, I’ll wear them in capri shapes or skinny jeans but not with another print

    I quite like the pale ones because the print is more subtle, maybe with a lacy floaty top thing and biiiig heels. Would have to be on a very skinny day. The blue ones are ugly and the others are all meh. I’d probably wear them but wouldn’t pay a lot for them or go out of my way to get them. They look comfy. As for capris i’d always rather die than wear them.

    In my opinion, the “skinny jeans” trend just needs to die, (well, maybe not “die”, but still). Those things are so uncomfortable, especially when you waste your time putting actual food in your system, instead of the lemon juice-soaked cotton balls models do. Anyone agree with me here?
