4 Ways to Wear ~ Floral Pants

For last month's 4WTW, I focused on a closet staple: the chambray shirt (see the full post here).  But, this time I wanted to show you how to wear one of the biggest trends for spring - floral pants!  I know this style is more fashion forward and may not be for everyone, but I'm hoping these outfits will prove just how versatile they can be & maybe convince you to give them a try.  In addition to these looks, other ways I have worn them is with a simple white button down & my bright peplum top (seen here).  You can view more detailed photos from this shoot on my Facebook page & let me know in the comments below which look is your favorite.  Next month, I'll be featuring 4 ways to wear a midi skirt!

Each one of these looks work great! Those leopard heels look great with the floral print in the 1st look. In the 3rd look the stripe/floral combo looks great, that shirt was made for those pants...lol. Such a wonderful post!

I went back to look at the Chambre Shirt post and love it! I also love these floral pants! I tried to purchase them at H&M a few weeks back and had no luck! So I left the store in disappointment and decided to wander over to F21 to view the accessories... YEP there was a guy working there IN THE FLORAL pants!!! AHH! I should have ripped them off his body! LOL!

PS - I really love how you show several ways to wear outfits! So fun!

Amanda, your comment made me laugh outloud!! I know these pants sold out so fast - before they arrived at my store, I was asking the manager about when they'd get them in...so I purposely went on the day they arrived so I could snatch some up before they were gone! :)

Erin said...

I love them paired with the white blazer.

Love the remixes! Gahhhh, I just don't know that I can pull off printed pants - especially floral! I tried the leopard print pants on at Target that everyone and their mother owns and I just couldn't see myself wearing them enough. Even if it wasn't for work - I'd feel odd walking around with my kids in printed pants. Lol - you make it look so easy though. I'll keep my eye for a pair - maybe in a smaller print. ;)

You look so nice in all four outfits. This is one trend I could never pull off but you did an amazing job! And so cute in flats!

Love all your looks, lady! Think the second might be my favorite but they're all winners. PRAYING these pants come back to my HM. If you see them in a sz 6 you are totally obligated to send them to me. :)

AHHH! I bought these about 2 weeks ago and have yet to wear them. I'm going to wear them Sunday as well as next week in Miami. I'll post picks and share. Who would have thought that a pant like this could be worn so many different ways! I love the fit too!

I snatched these floral pants up immediately too, but have yet to wear them! I really love how you styled them, I will absolutely use your outfits as inspiration. I especially love the 2nd and 4th outfits. I also have that white blazer, I'll have to try it with the pants.

Thanks for the helpful post!
