Floral Trousers

What with spring on the doorstep and prints being big news for spring/summer 12, floral trousers have hit the high-street in force.

Olivia Palermo was spotted recently in a pair from Topshop (as featured in this post while they were still available) and as such they are currently out of stock.  What power!

They have been styled beautifully by Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana and Bethany from  archedeyebrow who all realise that you need to match the rest of your outfit to a chosen colour in the trousers, and stick to block colours.  Even the generally-not-so-stylish Cher Lloyd looks OK in them too.

Verdict?  Floral trousers are very much on-trend right now but, I have to say these patterns remind me of the seating in the caravan we used to holiday in 15 years ago, and therefore the print will not flourish much past the end of this summer.  Therefore, don't splash out, get one of the high-street pairs I've found below.
