The Floral Jeans Trend

Arguably one of the biggest casual wear trends to sweep over us this year are floral jeans. The trend evolved from the beautiful floral prints displayed on the SS12 runways of designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Peter Som, Celine, Prabal Gurung and Diane von Furstenberg. Then we saw endless photos of celebrities like Olivia Palermo and Jessica Alba wearing a pair of brightly hued floral pants, turning it into a world-wide craze. But it's not just flowery blossoms that's catching on - visually interesting patterns, tie-dye, smudges and stripes have also been splashed to skinny denim jeans. These are some of the most eye-catching pairs designer denim pairs currently making waves.

Elizabeth {Ms Classic Glamour} said...

I will admit, I'm not the biggest fan of this trend. But I commend all of you who can wear it and rock it!
But if I had to choose one, I would probably wear the paisley printed pink ones... :)
Wonderful post, Sam, per the usual! You never fail to inspire me!

Stephanie said...

Love this trend! So many different styles to choose from! Great picks!


Jenna Hughes said...

want them all!


Josie said...

These are a little too girly for me, but I do really like the jeans in the fifth picture! xxx

Nuar said...

WOW! This is a dream come true for a jeans-addict like me!! The Dolce&Gabanna floral is beyond gorgeous, like pretty many of your picks. BTW, they say that Genetic Denim is the best brand for jeans making. And I can testify to their most flattering shape. ;+)
Hope you have a great rest of the week, sweetheart!

I love this look! But, don't think i can personally carry it off.

Rahul Bhatia said...

Eye catching pairs:)

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

I'm finicky about florals! I love most of them, but there are some I'll just ahem leave for others. HAHAHAHA One does not fit ALL! HAHAHAHA

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

I lover this trend, but I haven't tried it yet myself. I really love the blush pink pair by Current/Elliot and the black paisley COH's.


Anna said...

Initially I was really apprehensive about this trend - I just didnt think it was my style or something I could pull off but the bigger it seems to get and the more floral options available, the more I seem to want my own pair! haha It's always the way isn't it. I think I prefer the really bright and bold colours vs the more dainty pastels though. Hopefully I'll find my own perfect pair :)

Well... said...

Oooh, I really do enjoy this trend - although I have yet to get a pair of floral jeans myself. Haha, but I love how the black & white ones and pale romantic ones look ♥

I really like the floral denim trend - although I think I would probably stick to shorts rather than jeans as I would be a bit nervous of so much pattern.

The pale romantics jeans are just gorgeous though! :-)



K. said...

ftashion said...

Those pants are fab, I like flower pants but I don't own a pair, since I rearly wear jeans in summer, it is way too hot for that! Ilina

Lilli said...

I love this trend and you picked up so lovely pairs dear! I want to get all of them!:) Kisses and have a nice day!:*

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

Hey lovely, for some reason the images aren't coming up for me. They just show as boxes with an exclamation mark in them. I do love the floral jeans on others, especially on the runway but I don't think you'll be catching them on me. I don't think I'm confident enough to pull it off! Would you wear them?

Dominika said...

Olivia Palermo looks simply stunning, I love how she can pull off any look!


fluff and fripperies said...

Such a pretty trend, I love Olivia's second pair xo

Lyosha said...

very nice trend. I think it should live more!

I adore this trend and have been looking to add a pair of floral jeans to my closet so this post is right up my alley. I love the way OP rocks this look.

The Jones said...

I don't love Olivia Palermo...but I do LOVE her floral denims...her three pairs in your photographs are my favs hands down!!! I have a pair from H&M (cause I'm cheapskate) that I've been wearing at least once a week this summer. I usually pair them with a peplum top or some lace, makes the most of the trends :)

Daphnée Kwong Waye said...

Sincerely I'm not really attracted to printed jeans but I admit that they look really good on some people! :) I personally prefer prints on top than on the bottom part of my outfits ^^
Great post!



I like it, but I don't think that I would wear it myself!

Zoe Concepción said...

Love love love printed jeans, but I'm against the flower print, I don't know why, but I can't see myself wearing something like that. I preffer a tie dye ones or a stripe ones, like mine! THANKSSS for putting my link there dear!!!!!thanksssssssss!

Lucie Srbová said...

I love it!! Olivia looks amazing on those jeans! Following you:)

Kisses, Lucy!

Kate Frenkel said...

I'm not a fan of this trend!!! Just don't like floral bottom (jeans, pants, skirts). In my opinion, it looks too girlish and can be OK for teenagers only... and Beyonce looks terrible. Definitely not her pants.

Elle Sees said...

this trend is not for me, but love it on others

Joyce said...

yes yes yes, I love this trend! gahhh i want more floral jeans :) I really like Olivia Palermo's tie dye one. But now that I have floral jeans, I really want polka dot jeans.

Ann said...

They are so pretty...
But I can't rock them,
I don't think I look good in them.

Nicole said...

Hi Sam! I really love this trend! These ladies really pull it off.

I was in the Cape Town CBD the other day and I saw this guy wearing the most interesting pair of pants! It was a pair of classy black jeans and almost looked like 3 different shades of blue were painted on it randomly. Turns out he's a French fashion designer residing in CT and those were his own design. Gotta love fashion.

Ana in fashion said...

Love this trend!

i love them all! great picks, sam!

I like floral patterns, but jeans wouldn't work for me... yet, I liked the looks of Jessica Alba and Olivia Palermo!!!
Ah, yes, we should plan a trip together - I loved the idea!

I've seen floral denim and love the bold print on others (just not me, unless I had thinner legs!)

I love the floral trend and mostly pants version. But (sorry Beyonce) it suits only thin ladies. Good solution is to opt for a dress/ skirt or shirt!

Number 5, 7, 12, 13 and 17 are too cool!
