Threw in another orange print too.

    Way too bold for me!!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    I might need some time for my eyes to adjust...they are looking a bit like PJs!! I think I like them better when they narrow at the ankles. But no doubt time will change all of that. I love the printed pants idea in theory.

  • Victoria replied 8 years ago

    I'm like you, Suz! I like it in theory but I don't think I could wear it-I think its a bit much for me. My favorite outfit out of 3 posted is number 3-I can totally see myself wearing it:)

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    It's going to take a lot more convincing to get me to try this trend.

  • annagybe replied 8 years ago

    Love #2.

  • Queen Mum replied 8 years ago

    You've been quite camera happy today ;-) It's been fun to window shop with you! I'd love to see some of these outfits on a real person. Mannequins can wear anything and look great ;-)

  • Jem replied 8 years ago

    I don't think I'm ready for those. Maybe a wild plaid or something, but I probably just need to get used to it.

  • Ana replied 8 years ago

    Yay! Just picked up my second pair of printed pants yesterday (although technically I guess they are denim).

  • Mona replied 8 years ago

    I am still adjusting to bright coloured pants.

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    I'm with Mo - I really want some, but something more subtle.

  • HelenInCanada replied 8 years ago

    Dipping my toe in the waters...I think #3 will do it for me! I DO love the printed pants idea, but I want to find a print that speaks to me! :)

  • kellygirl replied 8 years ago

    Mmm, love the blouse in 3. I'm going to enjoy the printed pant trend vicariously through others.

  • Lisa replied 8 years ago

    I like the printed top and the bolder colors. But these printed pants look like PJ bottoms to me. I guess I need to adjust.

  • Inge replied 8 years ago

    I'm a bit scared of these, but absolutely digging the trend. Hope to find my perfect pair. And I really love the orange + bright pink colour combo in the last outfit.

  • Janet replied 8 years ago

    My first reaction is "Cool!" I wore a pair of pants quite like #1 but in shades of blue, turquoise, green and black, back in the 90s when printed/patterned pants were last in style.

    However, in retrospect, I'm not sure they were the most flattering thing on me, so I would tread cautiously into this trend, if at all. I'm just not sure how well patterns on the lower half flatter a body that tends to look pear-ish.

  • cjh replied 8 years ago

    Janet wore them in the 90's, and I wore them in the 70's!! In fact I made a pair of pants from a bright Hawaiian style print and wore them to death when I was in college. Every 20 years, I guess. I doubt if I will go that route now. But they make me smile.

  • JennyAnne replied 8 years ago

    Wow! I think I'll stick with something subtler. I like the first orange sweater, though.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    I actually like the entire outfit in #2 - not on me of course. And I love the bright orange/pink combo in #3. I'm afraid the pants in #1 remind me of the bedspread my grandmother had.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    LOVE the tops in #1 and #3, but I think the wider printed pants like these aren't for me. I'm hoping to find a slimmer pair of printed pants.

  • Charmian replied 8 years ago

    I agree, window shopping with Angie is fun!

    I don't think I can get my head around boldly printed pants, but one of the things that's already made my shopping list for this season are checked pants (didn't you recommend microchecks a few years ago, Angie?). We'll see how well these trends translate to asia -- I can't wait!

  • Sona replied 8 years ago

    that combo in #3 is calling my name.

    I think I'd have to find a pair of very tailored print pants to venture into this territory. Hmmmm...

  • Carole replied 8 years ago

    Over the top for sure!

  • Kyle replied 8 years ago

    Yikes. I'm not there yet, but will keep an open mind!

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    I can't wait a second more to find a pair of these in my size and price range!

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Girl X, I am still all over micro checked pants :)

    We'll discuss these pants in detail soon!

  • bj1111 replied 8 years ago

    i wanted the leopard jacquard print pants from jcrew, but they blew out of the store. hoping they get similar ones in the future.

  • bionda replied 8 years ago

    I hooted when I saw the pants in pic #1. I bought a pair of very similar tropical print pants last summer at a local boutique...deeply discounted. I loved them on sight, but they looked so 90's to me and I couldn't imagine where I'd wear them. They were cheap enough that I bought them anyway and wore them on our boat and loungeing at home. Maybe this summer I can actually wear them in public???

    Love the top in pic #3!!!

  • Heather replied 8 years ago

    Sign me up, please!!!

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    I love #2 especially! Bring on the printed pants!

  • taylor replied 8 years ago

    I am with Inge...scared to death!! :)

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    I wore bright pants in the 50's (well, pedalpushers). I like #3 best but the eye is still adjusting and this time around I'll probably enjoy these on others.

  • replied 8 years ago

    As a person that is quite minimalist, you would think I would be opposed to printed pants. But surprisingly, I am quite taken with them. What is going on with me? I want them...or at least try them. I am shocked!

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    I just want to add, I've recently figured out that as an IT, my flair and pattern is best left to my bottom half. I've always done that instinctually with skirts, but now I know why. Pants will be even more fun! I just hope there's something out there for petites...

  • Kari replied 8 years ago

    Not sure the printed pants are for me, but love both orange tops!

  • Andrea B. replied 8 years ago

    I love look 1, but how do you keep it from looking matronly on an older, less whippet-like frame?

  • chewyspaghetti replied 8 years ago

    These just seem so unfriendly to anyone who isn't in love with their lower half.

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    I'm excited now! I NEED to get out and go shopping. I love #1, although maybe I'd like the hem to be a little less palazzo style.

  • Vicki replied 8 years ago

    Big, bold and nice for someone else. I think I'm print-particular and would know it when I see it.

  • Sylvie replied 8 years ago

    I like the top in #3. I'm confident I could rock it. :)

  • cciele replied 8 years ago

    Hm, I just remembered I have a pair of soft printed pants from Bali (via J Peterman). Maybe I should give those a shot! :)
