Where to buy Floral Jeans/Trousers

I noticed the floral leggings/jeans/trouser trend last year and I did buy some leggings from Matalan but having taken a photo and posted on Avenue 57 I was told NO NO NO but also some said YES YES YES.

Here's my look from last June - what do you think? I should have kept them and changed the top half which is wrong I know.





I returned them and have kicked myself ever since. So I am over the moon that this floral trend is continuing this Spring. I headed to Matalan which is where I always go for on trend items you want to try but don't want to break the bank.


My two BBFs (blogger best friends) have already blogged about their floral jeans ( I know, I'm so behind the times) - Avril from School Gate Style and Joanna from Poppy's Style - I LOVE the muted colours of Avrils and Joanna looks heavenly in her tropical colours.


I bought these yesterday and I love them - they're ONLY £10 at the moment. They're in between light denim jeans and trousers, they're hard to describe but they are comfortable.

Here I am in them today - they are ridiculously easy to wear and I've already had 2 compliments on them this morning - ooh I love a good compliment!





Having had a good look around t'interweb I've found these gems, I'm sure I'll be buying some more as they can be dressed up with heels or down with sandals.

I love the colour of these and knowing Zara the quality will be good. These are trousers as opposed to jeans but that just makes them even nicer I reckon! £39.99

Again, Zara, £35.99

Mango - £34.99 - I love these - total statement trousers if ever you did see a pair.


Mango Floral Jeans - £39.99
I love these - so fresh and so versatile




As with Matalan, if I want to try a trend without spending too much I head on over to Tesco Clothing - these are just £16


A bit more subtle in flower pattern and a good one for all year round wearing
Dorothy Perkins - £25 (£17.50 if you buy today as they have 30% off EVERYTHING online)

No blog post is complete without a mention for ASOS - I LOVE that site so much - have used them since they started out over a decade ago!

Black and white floral - £35

So, do you own floral jeans/trousers? Where from? Would love to see, please upload your photo on Avenue 57

  1. I love the ones you are wearing, and I think for £10 they are worth a punt, not sure if I would be brave enough for floral bottoms...but for £10 I might be tempted to try.

    1. I wasn't sure either because wherever I look the brands are teaming with matching floral top and I ca't do the whole floral head to toe thing. But one statement half is ok - I cannot wait to try them with flats and a vest top when the weather warms up.

  2. I love the £10 ones! I am almost there on the floral ones - they look so lovely on everyone else . I'm just not brave enough myself ...yet!

    1. I bet if you bought some and wore like I have with a VERY plain simple top half you could make them work. The other thing is just smile - I did feel a LITTLE out of my comfort zone in them but now I've worn them and had compliments I feel ok!

    1. £10 is an amazing price hey?! I love the yellow Zara ones and the Mango ones - I am seriously thinking of buying them to see if they're as good as my bargain ones - not sure I'm brave enough for such a pop of colour?

  5. Your new ones are so much better. Love this look, don't like last summers although I do like Cornflower blue and yellow together normally xx

    1. I think it's because the first ones are leggings and I just don't feel right in leggings - I feel very exposed where as the jeans/chino's are more structured and I have a heel and tight top on ..

  6. Love, love, love these jeans on you!

  7. I'm struggling to find any mention of today's discount at Dorothy Perkins - am I being thick? Can't see anything on the website, nor find a code?

    Sooo tempted by lots of these, particularly the bargain pairs!

  8. I'm back to have a look at the trousers - they are such a good fit, and a total bargain!

  9. I'm not fully convinced on the floral jeans or trousers, but have to say that I LOVE the pair that you're wearing. In fact if there was a Matalan in Dublin, I'd be on my way there to try them out!!

    1. What a shame you don't have one - they should open a store!!!!!

  10. Love the Matalan ones, did you buy your normal size in them or did you have to size up or down? I'm fed up of wearing my skinnies and boots and think these would fit the bill without being too outrageous, as I'm the wrong side of 45. X

    1. I'm in between sizes right now so I reckon they are true to size.
      These will suit any age - go on buy them!!

    2. Bought!! Just need to pluck up the courage to wear them, I love them but they are way out of my comfort zone. I had to try on about 6 pairs as they varied so much in size. X

      Delete
    3. YAY!!! Can't wait to see them!
      I hate it when shops do that because if you hadn't persevered you'd have left without them after the first trying on

  11. Hi there! Your pair looks amazing and so stylish, I like them the best of all out of all the picks! xxx

  14. I'm not sure I dare ... but the Matalan ones look good. Or rather - you make them look good!

  15. I have been loving my floral denim. In fact I might have worn them out this sprinter (ie spring but still feels like winter ;) )

    They are alot easier to wear than I thought they would be but I tend to go for ones with a darker background as they are more flattering for my body type.

    1. LOL I love that term - Sprinter - superb!
      I would love to 'see' you in them - fancy posting your look on avenue57.com

      I agree that you can't dismiss them until you try them!
