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!
