I’ve always envied girls that could pull off patterned bottoms. As someone with a bit more to love in the hips, I was a firm believer that I was destined to wear solid colors for eternity… Until I found the polka dot pants.
Material and design are everything when trying to find figure flattering pants. I’ve come to the conclusion that finding a patterned pant which works for you is no exception. For example, it’s so much easier to wear a bottom constructed with denim instead of spandex, regardless of body type.
I love to wear ponte leggings as pants, because they are thick. The same logic works with patterned pants! The jeans I found at LOFT remind me of a lightweight corduroy, just enough substance to be out of the jegging category.

It doesn’t hurt that these jeans were a steal too. They were in the clearance area marked down to TEN DOLLARS. I tried them on, instantly fell in love, and then was delighted to find out that all of the clearance also gets an additional 15% off.
As if that wasn’t reason enough to buy them, I was searching through my wallet for cash and found a $5 Discover Gift Card that I received due to paying my credit card bill on time. After the gift card I paid $3.96 for these amazing pants.
I like how the dotted pattern is subtle enough that the pants can still be used as a neutral. Does that defeat the purpose of a patterned pant though? Would I be able to wear an obviously patterned bottom Next on my list of purchases, I am determined to find floral.
There’s nothing quiet about floral.
Papaya and Forever 21 have a few pairs, but I would be concerned about the cheap material. I don’t feel like patterned jeans are something you can purchase without trying on, although I’m tempted.
Rebecca Minkoff has a different take on the trendy floral jeans. Only the cuffs of her Digital Floral Skinny Boot Jeans are accented with color/design, and although they are not $3.96 like my LOFT ones, they could be worth the investment.

I’ve never owned white jeans. I definitely believe a deeper color is better on bottom, but my other opinion on changed, could this?
…honestly, I can’t justify them since I’m supposedly saving for a car so it doesn’t really matter.
How do you feel about patterned pants?
