Floral Pants Take Two

So, since this is the second time I've worn these pants... and each time I have gotten multiple compliments followed by some combination of the words 'but I couldn't wear that' or 'I feel like I would only wear them once'... I thought I'd try something different here: a brief “how to” segment. Since I have both styled my floral pants (see how I styled them the first time for winter here) and worn them more than once, here are some tips for styling this new trend. Also, it is worth mentioning that they're actually a super versatile piece in that if you choose the right fabric, you can totally get 3-4 seasons out of them (I've already worn them for 2!) AND there are typically multiple colors which means there are limitless styling options!

1. Since I've already done a striped top (stripes look great with florals!), I decided to change up the color scheme (I used rose and gold for winter) and pattern play for a totally different look. This time, I opted for a spring color palette in pastels and started with a solid colored, mint green sweater. 2. I then chose my shoes- lavender-hued ankle strap flats to both freshen up the look and to bring in another pop of color! 3. To pull it all together... the jewelry and the bag. I chose a statement necklace with similar colors as the top and flats and threw on some brighter colored bracelets for some added punch. I also added a leopard clutch because I think that leopard counts as a neutral... and I love florals and leopard together!
