Floral Pants for Fall

I had $10 in rewards and a $15 birthday coupon from Banana Republic that I had to use in August. There was also a 40% off the sale price promotion going on at the end of August (which is happening very often at Banana Republic). I had been looking for metallic flats, and I was happy when I found the pale gold flats as they are shiny but not too much so.

While browsing the website, I was thrilled when I came across the Avery-Fit Floral Crop pants (in tall) as I had been looking for floral pants because the ones I own are unfortunately quite a bit past their prime; they are 5+ years old, and I have worn them often, and they have been washed often. They definitely have served me well. I ended up getting the flats and the pants for $31 total and managed to get free shipping (at first, the website wouldn’t accept my birthday coupon along with my rewards with the 40% off, but after about 20 tries, I ended up getting it to work, and I was happy when my order qualified for free shipping even though the total was below $50).

I like these floral pants because of the colors in them, and I look forward to creating different outfits with a wide range of colors. This time I stuck to red and pink, but there are so many possibilities: grey, red, pink, turquoise, yellow, green… While the pants are from the spring/summer collection, for fall I’m looking forward to pairing them with dark green, grey, and dark reds.

I’m still loving my Coach satchel (similar); the little pink bag turned out to be much roomier and versatile than I had thought it would be when I bought it.

Questions: Do you like florals? If so, are you planning on wearing floral pants (or other floral pieces of clothing) in the fall? Or are you reserving them for spring and summer? If you are wearing florals in the fall, are you sticking to more traditional fall colors?

  2. Well done you for persevering and getting that amazing discount Andrea! The colourway of these trousers will give you so many options too. I don't mind what season I wear florals, as long as they're working with my chosen separates they can be worn all year round as far as I'm concerned. Wishing you a lovely week x

    1. Thanks, Anna! I was VERY determined to get the coupons and discount to work together (it indicated on the website that they could be combined), and I'm glad I didn't give up! I actually kept trying over the course of a few days; no idea why it all of a sudden worked... :-)

      I look forward to pairing the pants with different tops and really changing up the look!

      Have a wonderful week, too!

  3. I do like florals in the fall if they have a darker colored background and aren't pastels. These floral pants will work well during all seasons for you! I shop the Banana Republic outlet by my house a lot, I always find such great items in there! I can't wait to see your metallic flats.

  6. I'm head over heels for fall florals right now! I'm trying to think of ways to integrate them into my home decor, let alone my wardrobe! What beautiful pants! I love getting deals at Banana like this. We have an outlet close by, and it can often be my weakness!

  12. Oh Andrea, those are fabulous floral trousers. What gorgeous colours and you'll be able to wear them spring and summer. What a great buy.
    I love florals - especially winter florals with dark rich colours. I probably like them more than summer florals which can be a bit twee.

  26. These pants are gorgeous and I love them with the merlot blouse. I missed out on this fabulous floral print from Banana. I wanted the midi skirt, pants and blazer from it. I need to look for some online as second-hand. Thanks for linking up and also for matching me in fab floral cropped pants today. Looking fabulous as usual, Andrea. =)

  27. Those floral pants are beautiful, and how awesome you could get them so cheaply with the sale and the specials and the coupon! I love when you get extra money off things! :)

    I can see these pants being worn with layers and darker colours for cooler weather too definitely, just like you said. They do look so nice with that shirt too.

    Hope you're having a great week :)

  31. As I said in the other comment, I love thise trousers. And like you, I found out that pink is very versatile. My French Sole ballerinas go with nearly everything. They would go with that gorgeous bag of yours I bet haha. You cannot go wrong with Coach.

  32. I really love these pants on you! And the red blouse looks great. I can't wait to see how you wear them in the later fall. I love the pattern.

    I'm more for standard pieces on myself, all one color, pants and jacket, but love wearing a colored blouse or scarf. But that's just what I'm comfortable in, I love these on you!

    1. I own a lot of muted colors, and the pants are definitely quite a bit different from my "normal" outfits. But, yes, I think it's good to add something a bit more "loud" to your closet once in a while...
