Inspired: Floral Pants

I recently returned from a 9-month post grad fellowship to Indonesia.

Indonesia is an incredibly vibrant country.  The food, the people, and the fashion are equally colorful and bold.

Indonesian style is inspired by the diversity of its landscape and culture. One of the highlights of their unique fashion is a fabric known as Batik, which is traditionally imprinted with bold patterns and florals.

Inspired by this bold design, I’ve been lusting after a pair of floral trousers, mirroring Indonesian fashion in a modern trend.

A few that I particularly like:

I’m liking the flow-y trouser feeling to these pants compared to the skinny, straight legged pants that dominate my wardrobe.

How about you all-Do you prefer straight legged or flow-y pants? Would you wear floral pants? I love reading your comments!

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend, and for those of you who are working today (like me!) Hang in there! TGIF!
