Crazy Pants

For a while now, I have found myself drawn to crazy pants. Florals, animal prints, sequins, ikat, etc. etc. Now that I have watched No Doubt's Settle Down video about eleventy five times, I am OBSESSED with Gwennie's crazy Indian-mirrored-fab-u-frigging-tastic pants. Alas, they are one of a kind, literally. Believe me, I've checked.

The last few years, I have been a sucker for anything ethnic or tribal, and Gwen's juxtaposition of those with the checkerboard panel down the side gives these a SKA/punk element that I love more than a Biggest Loser contestant loves high fructose corn syrup (yes, I stole that from Pinterest).

In an effort to quell my lust for those pants, let's check out some other tasty printed alternatives, mmm-kay?

Ikat? OH YES I CAN. 

These pants are TIE DYE FOR. Insert groan here.

Are those big giant scart print pants, or are you just happy to see me?

Kind of scaley and fish-like, but still badass. 

I think these are either Balmain or Balenciaga, and I would be as happy as that chick is to wear them too. However, since they are price upon request, I will never wear them in my lifetime.

These skinny camos from Zara, however, will be mine - at least as soon as they're delivered. I just ordered them the other night. 

So what say you? Are you on board the crazy pants trend? Rockin them come fall? If not - what trend ARE you looking forward to? Share - this is a safe place.

Sheree - why thank you kindly, m'dear. Flattery will get you EVERYWHERE on this blog.

Courtnee - I KNOW. Don't know if you ever read the blog Girls of a Certain Age (I link to it on my blogroll) but she posted about these pants a few days ago, and I was pretty astounded by the passionate feelings both for and against camo skinnies. You'll have to check it out.
