Lust Have – Floral Print Pant

Two days ago, when talking about spring trends and floral, I shared a pic with a beautiful pair of floral print trousers. We all fell in love with them so I have started a new Lust Have List with the Floral Print Pant.

Lust Have – Floral Print Pant: This is the pair I have fallen in love with. Unfortunately, I have spent two days searching for them with no luck. I haven’t given up but I have found a few other lovely pairs that I thought I would share with you all.

Silk Flowers: This pair from Shopbop.com is 100% silk and have the flowing effect of the Lust Have pair. They are currently on sale for just under $165 AUD. The colour is perfect for spring and works nicely with all those peaches and corals we looked at last month. This pair can be dressed down with a white shirt (even a t-shirt) or dressed up with a bronze sparkly tank.

Colour of Sunflowers: This pair by Suno is also from Shopbop.com and is currently marked down from $900 to about $270 AUD! Great bargain…but still pretty expensive. The colours are vibrant and I like the little hits of purple which means these could be used right through autumn by wearing burnt orange or purple on top. So if you wore them for a few seasons, it might be easier to justify the price. Because they are a proper trouser cut with a little more tailoring they have a bit more of a classic appeal. I can certainly see myself wearing them with one of my pairs of orange wedges!

Flowing Floral: I chose to share this option with you because it is similar in colour palette to the original pair, although it is missing the contrasting colours. Also, it seemed a good option for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere because the colours are very autumnal. This pair is currently on sale at FarFetched.com for a meer $539! Oh, they are designer…Giles Deacon…does that help?

Flowers of the Sea: I love this pair! Aren’t they beautiful? The colours are fantastic for Spring and Summer 2012. They are by Maxmara and can be purchased on sale at Matches Fashion for $170. Again it’s a pair that could be dressed casual with a white shirt or would look great with a cobalt blue top. Then you can tick off the floral and cobalt trends in one look.

Night Flowers: As gorgeous as the previous pair are, there is something about this pair that make them my favourites of the bunch. They are from ASOS which is usually a good sign for the pocketbook. However, this silk pair by Nahm are $750!! Love them, but will have to leave them. I can do a lot of shopping with that kind of money.

If I had to choose a pair right now it would be the Maxmara pair because the colour is beautiful, the price reasonable and they are very much on-trend with both the print and the use of brights and cobalt.

Did you like any of these? Would you pay that much for a pair of floral print pants? Would you even wear floral print pants?

I think I might spend a little more time trying to search out the original pair before I make any decisions though. After all, no need to rush into a purchase that doesn’t quite soothe the burning desire for a lust have item. Especially a floral print pant!

    Oooh…I don’t know. They look so drapey and pretty on the models, but on my petite frame and caboose I’m afraid I might look like a walking sofa.

  • Resa McConaghy

    I find liking prints are a very personal taste issue, but when you like one, it’s definitely a lust have! Nice post!

  • Sheila T Illustrated

    I have a lust have list, but not floral prints. Love ’em on others, but not on me!

  • cioccolatoscuro

    I love the first one

    I just keep having flashbacks of those 90’s floral Little-House-On-The-Prairie dresses (admit it; we all had one). I think because these are pants they might be difficult to wear unless you’re young and trim without looking matronly. I have a pair of floral canvas Mary Janes, a plum shirtdress, and a skirt with a floral design along the hem but I think that’s it.

      Those are all good ways to get floral into your wardrobe without going for the full-on madness. I am hoping if I find the right cut and then style them well I won’t look too matronly! If I do, they will go to the thrift shop fast enough!! 😀
      Cheers,

      p.s. yes, I had the 80s Laura Ashley dress but only wore it to a formal…I was never a floral girl til recently.

    The silk palazzo pants are totes my fave here. Dead 70s. Love it. I so want a pair of flowery trousers – I can’t believe I don’t own any yet!

  • lushlili

    That blue pair look amazing and now I am reassessing if I should get floral pants. It’s not really my style but maybe I can give it a go

    • astimegoesbuy

      I so love the blue kind of sea coloured pair. I think they would look great with a white, cobalt or turquoise shirt and as we are heading into spring summer it would be a great look. 🙂
      Give them a go is my vote!
      Cheers,
      Laura

  • shiroknowes

    Love the flower of the sea and the night flowers they are really awesome and the first one is just beautiful….. I hope you gonna find a same one like that !

  • refind

    I loved the photos in this post – so inspirational for the end of summer (in my part of the world, anyway!) I probably wouldn’t spend a lot on floral pants because they are a super trendy item and I try to spend $$$ on classic pieces only. But who knows!? They are all so beautiful I will never say never! They are on my shopping list for next Spring!
    Great post!

    • astimegoesbuy

      Thanks Alyssa!
      I’m with you on spending more on the classics. It’s the smart thing to do.
      For some crazy reason though I am obsessed with having a beautiful pair of floral pants.
      Preferrably silk and wide legged!
      If I can find a pair I love for the right price I will add them to the wardrobe, otherwise I will pass on this trend. 🙂
      Cheers,
      Laura

    Laura, have you seen the latest fall floral print mixed with animal print? It has lot of rhythm and I like this new trend better, than just floral.

  • ilovethistrend

    The pair from asos are so lovely, the sheer top makes a really nice jumpsuit kind of look and I love the blue and mint green, unexpected and edgy, very pretty! x

    • astimegoesbuy

      I agree Lucy,
      They are very pretty. Originally I didn’t think I would be interested in a pair of floral pants however there are so many gorgeous pair I am thinking that I’m going to end up with them in my wardrobe. 🙂
      Cheers,
      Laura
