Amanda Seyfried in Beverly Hills

Posted on March 26, 2012

Hi Amanda! You probably SERIOUSLY do not want to chat with us or have your picture taken right now and that’s perfectly understandable.

Amanda Seyfried goes shopping in Beverly Hills.

J Brand 835 Mini Floral Print Twill Leggings Jeans

Alexander Wang Daria Small Leather Duffle Bag

So you keep on walking while we all talk about your jeans. Don’t give us that look. We’re ignoring the cheap flip-flops, aren’t we? Minions, the jeans are adorable, non? If you’d said “floral jeans” to us without showing us this picture, our only response would have been, “Oh, please.” But these are super-cute. Or do you all still bear the scars of unfortunate jean choices in decades past and can’t imagine ever wearing a floral pair yourself? We guess what we’re asking is:

Floral jeans: YEA or NAY?

  • Ms_Flyover

    Yea if you are a size 0 actress.  Nay for us mere mortals who would look like a walking couch.

    • PhillipWilde

       My thoughts exactly.

      • Ditto. But even a size 0 actress needs to jazz up the look with better shoes and a better top. She looks like she is cleaning the house rather than going out shopping

        • Can’t make any comment better than walking couch-agreed.

    • LuisaNL

      agree, an easy chair at the very least.

    •  Couldn’t say it better.

    • Nora Mulllin

      I work retail at a pretty classic women’s brand. Often known for red doors. They’ve gotten much trendier in the last couple of years (thank G-d! I’d never be working there otherwise.) Every single time someone tries on the floral pants we have all I see is couch.

  • Allyson Wells

    Yea, but I think this pair needed a more colorful top.

    • That was my first thought too, but then maybe it would’ve been TOO much? Like, I think a jewel tone would’ve been garish (and I say this as a deep lover of jewel tones whose clothes are mostly in those colors), and a pastel would’ve been too Easter. Maybe something more muted? I don’t know.

      I guess what I’m saying is, this is a pair of pants that I would try on and say, “Oh man, SUPER cute!” and then spend 15 minutes agonizing over what I’d wear with them before regretfully putting them back on the rack.

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        I think they’d look cute with a crisp white button down.

    • Even  grey top would be fine … but not a baggy sweatshirt thing like she’s wearing.  I’d be fine with black or white or grey even, just. not. that.

  • If there were an acceptable pair of floral jeans, these might be it. Doesn’t mean I’m going to wear them due to the nightmare of being a child of the 80’s.  

    •  Exactly.  I’ve already been down that road.  Never again for me.

    •  Exactly.  I’ve already been down that road.  Never again for me.

  • Anathema_Device

    I think floral jeans are adorable, so yea to them in theory. On me? Probably not. Although, these gray ones are on the more subtle side.

    Anthropogie has a pair of navy with white polka-dot jeans I’m in love with. I’ll have to see whether they are a travesty on non-model figures.

    • littlemac8

      I tried on the Anthro jeans with polka-dots!  They are skinny crops and are as cute as they can be!  Though for $178 a bit pricey, yes?  I am too old for skinny jeans but they will be adorable on someone younger!  Fresh looking for spring.

      • Anathema_Device

        Yes, they are expensive. Another reason I haven’t bothered to try them on yet. I don’t mind investing that money in something I’ll wear for long time, but I fear my love of polka dot jeans would flame out too quickly to spend that amount of cash.

  • In general, Nay (too Buffy the Vampire Slayer, seasons 1-2. While I love Buffy, her sartorial choices in those seasons are not to be replicated), but I think Amanda’s pulling it off, and I suspect others would be able to. So yea for some and nay for most. I know it seems unfair, but no one ever said fashion was fair.

    • siriuslover

      But she kicked some vampire ass in those clothing choices, so that counts for something 😉

  • Awesome, those are totally my $1.50 shower flip-flops from college.

  • Not with my body but if I had hers, I’d definitely go for it.

  • Nay unless you are under 6 years old or a time traveller from 1985. And definitely nay with flipflops.

  • vanjar

    €194 for a pair of grey patterned leggings? How about, … NO!

    •  SOoooooo true. Ridiculous. Nothing about the styling, fit or construction, warrants that sort of pricing.

  • Yea, if you are, like Amanda here, tiny, skinny, and under 30. The rest of humanity, not so much.

  • CQAussie

    Um….no….nay…..I can’t….too many bad memories of unfortunate jean choices.  

  • DaringMiss

    I would only put my 9 year old in flowered denim.

  • TheLaurenJean

    Yay! I love them, and Love my pair!

  • Although I don’t know in general, Yeah to these ones.

  • Yea on slim young women. Nay on me.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    NAY. Even here, it looks like a remake of the “Sounds of Music” curtain scene. Plus, leggings jeans. LEGGINGS JEANS.

  • sagecreek

    If I had her figure, I’d be all over those jeans. Otherwise, as Ms_Flyover so wisely opined, it’s couch city.

  • YEA – still an 80’s girl at heart

  • YEA when I was in 9th grade (1986). I had a green pair.

  • bellesprit

    I promise you *I* will not be wearing floral jeans. (applause) But they’re adorable on Amanda. I think she looks cute and actually sort of put together in a very casual way.

  • lalahartma


  • j_anson

    Nay. It’s just too Madonna circa Material Girl (I think partly because that print makes them read like an opaque lace to my eye?), and I think we should leave that to the Grande Dame herself.

  • lilibetp

    On size 2, 26-year-old Amada, floral jean are a yea.  On size 20, 47-year-old me, floral jeans are a nay. 

  • fungstyle

    nay. i just… can’t. with almost all floral prints, actually. 

  • marywv

    NAY! Especially the way she’s styled them. Reminds me of wal-mart cica 1992. 

  • MilaXX

    Only for those 25 and under & the very thin. 

  • Nay.

    I don’t wish to be upholstered.

  • nannypoo

    Great on her, probably not so much for the rest of us. Nice bag, too. She looks pretty here, without gobs of makeup.

  • Jasmaree

    She looks like she’s in her pajamas.

  • Nay. I don’t even think they look good on her.

  • janetjb


    What I really mean is I love this pair, but most I’ve seen are fairly hideous.


  • They’re only super-cute because they’re paired with extremely low-key other things (grey t-shirt, black bag).  I’m not sure what else you could wear them with without looking like a dumbass.

    • formerlyAnon

      Crisp, slightly oversized oxford shirt. Probably open over a tank top.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Nay, because they look more like leggings than pants, so the outfit looks like it’s from Macy’s pajama department.

  • Stubenville

    Yea, for the seven and under age demographic.

  • Agreed that it’s a Yay if you have the cute lil’ legs to pull them off!

  • TheOriginalLulu

    YEA, they’re super-cute. They’re definitely better with the cute wedges, but she’s just out running errands, so who can blame her for wanting to be comfy?

  • formerlyAnon

    Nay. They will not only be worn by cute young things in subdued colors, thus should not be allowed to proliferate.

    (I hate flip-flops on-the-street in an urban setting with a passion, this may contribute to my distaste.)

  • sherrietee

    If they were cheaper than $202 I would totally get a pair.  They aren’t worth that.

  • LuvLy01

    I vote a hell naw!

  • Joey Melliza

    this one yey!!!!

  • YEA if you are a skinny twentysomething with  an attitude.
    Now, if I see a midwestern soccer mom in these…

  • Absolutely under no circumstances. Even cute little Amanda S. can’t pull this off – she  looks like she is on the way to Walmart to pick up some dish detergent. NAY!

  • Jessi03

    NAY at the concept, but Yea on her?  Too many traumatic jeans memories in my past.

  • belfebe

    Yea.  But not everyone can pull that look off.  Otherwise, adorable.

  • Aly Light

    Oh, I coveted those immediately! 

  • Yay.

  • guestela

    bleh. nay.

  • unbornfawn

    For the young and thin

  • Yea. But not with that top.

  • benjamin478

    Yea! These are cool!

  • lrhoff

    No way.  At first glance I thought she was wearing her PJs.  

  • Sunshine16

    Yea!  I’ve been waiting for them to come back since 1990!

  • Kate4queen


  • VioletFem

    YEAH. If you can rock ’em, wear ’em. 

  • lilazander

    Love it on the model, otherwise NAY.

  • JasmineAM

    I think they are ridiculously FUG.

  • cmb92191

    She looks great!

    I’ll be the first to admit I had a pair of floral pants… back in 1983.  How I loved those pants!   I’m sure I looked like a walking couch, but boy did I think I was hot stuff– especially when I paired said pants with my purple Chinese slippers. 


  • marilyn

    FLORAL JEANS:  YEA in general, on her NAY.

    Normally I am one to say that when celebrities are on their own time, we should have a lowered standard of expenctation for their looks.  However, going shopping is like being on the clock for them.  She is wearing no makeup, the clothes may be expensive but they look like leftovers from the bottom of the laundry basket. Flipflops are flipflops.  Sorry, but an expensive purse is not going to make this better.   She actually looks like she has a hangover.  Even with that, she could have done more with herself.  Was she going shopping at KMart, WalMart or Target?  That would not be good enought for one of the big box stores.  I would have said to over look this if she was on her way to the ER.

    A (faux) tan would have helped with the hangover look.

  • siriuslover

    I bear the scars of my periwinkle flowered capris, though I loved them so. I really, really did. I can’t be a hater when she looks so happy in them.

  • Love the jeans, personally.

  • judybrowni

    Flip flops are the shoes of my people (the people of L.A., that is). They are our regional costume, if you will.

    And cheap flip flops are considered acceptable foot wear, for all but formal occasions.  

    • AthenaJ

      I live just outside of Philadelphia PA, and we also have some die-hard flipflopians. As long as it’s not snowing/below freezing, they’ll be sporting ’em.

      • charlotte

         In Colorado they are sporting them even then. Pretty much all year round.

    • 3boysful

       I love me some flops–I have scads of them here in NC.  But I only wear them if it’s warm, or I’m going for a pedi.

  • kimmeister


  • Nay. 

  • She’s making the floral jeans cute, not the other way around.  YEA for those fortunate enough to have similar superpowers.

  • Bozhi

    Yea. I like them, I can’t wear them, I’m a size 12, but they look great on her. 

    I’m assuming her styling choices mean she is going shopping for shoes/clothing.  Whenever I go shopping for something I have to try on, I wear things I can take off and put on quickly.  I don’t want to unbutton, unbuckle or untie everytime I need to remove my shoes or clothing. 

  • Excuse me while I deal with my 80’s flashbacks ….

  • no!!!! simply no!!! not on anyone!!!

  • turtleemily

    I like them as long as they stay in the same color palette in neutral colors. My issue with this pair is more the length.

  • Judy_J

    I like floral jeans, so I vote YEA.

  • mjude


  • nay. size 0 and still not convinced that they look good. but Im pretty sure I have her sunglasses! Versace?

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    They look like faded old leggings or pajama bottoms. Strictly Wal-Mart.

  • AthenaJ

    They’re jeans?? Looks like nasty old faded leggings to me. Slightly better on the model, but still, I gotta call this one a NAY.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Absolutely YEA. Super cute. Although they work better on the model, mid-calf and with a slight heel.

  • 3boysful

    They’re ok cute on the model, but until I got to the cropped hem, I thought she was wearing faded flannel jammies in public and that you guys were gonna rip her for it.  Sorry, these particular ones anyway are an out for me.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Yea, for someone young enough and slim enough.  Love the flip flops, but that top is nasty.

  • ccm800

    yea. And I think plenty of gals could rock these. 

  • I love them for my size 0 teenager, but for my 40 year old mom ass? I think not.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Yea! These are great in the subtle gray. Some of the brights are a bit too much. She looks cute, very Californian.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I just had a repressed memory of the PLAID DENIM JEANS my gay ass wore in high school.  Now I need to take a xanax and call my therapist.  Thanks TLO.

  • Janie22341

    We must not let go manifest truths because we cannot answer all questions about them.

  • greatscoutm


  • Kimberly Southern-Weber


  • lesmaha

    I loved the old colorful floral jeans of the 80s, actually–when I was thin and young….

  • Yea, but you have to tread carefully and pick patterns that are cute and modern like this — and NOT the large, muted color prints reminiscent of old couches.


    JEGGINGS? Ugh. Nay.

  • saanrio

    On adorable little women like her, sure!  On me, with the “Mom of Four Thunder Thighs”, I would look like my grandmother’s couch. 🙁

  • Yea.  She looks cute.

  • BrightsideSusan

    Love them on the younger girls.

  • cam_lo

    no mother effing way. i think anyone who wears these looks twee and ridiculous and on their way to a fifth grade birthday party at a string-your-own-bead-necklace shop.

  • Lisa

    Oh, no no no, honey, I had enough of those things in 1986.

  • NAY. Amanda’s thin enough to pull them off, but for 99% of humanity, they are a very bad idea.

  • PeaceBang

    If you’re under 25, sure.

  • drdirection

    way better than the hideous floral pants Jcrew is offering this season


  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    You have just inspired an acid washed nightmare in my brain.  Thanks so much.

  • efishfan

    I wore them in the ’80’s and I only slightly regret them.

  • YEA to the pants! It’s the shirt that appalls me.

  • bellafigura1

    YAY and yea!

  • R. L.


  • joything

    I have worn candy-striped bell-bottom jeans, so floral jeans like this are nothing at all.  YEA!

  • jcolli69

    YEA! I was like 8 or 10 when they were fashionable in the 90’s….excited to rock the look again!

  • This makes me think of people in the grocery store.

  • I hate flipflops.  If I were Fashion King of the Forest, I would ban them.

  • I hate flipflops.  If I were Fashion King of the Forest, I would ban them.

  • Sophie Collier

    THOSE floral jeans?  Cute.  

  • SatelliteAlice


  • yea.

  • Louise Bryan

    On her, Yea.  On me, Neigh…er, nay.

  • bailey debruynkops


  • butter nut

    jeans for skinny girls 23 & under.  everyone one else on earth should avoid at all costs.

  • jnicholehardy

    nea!  just because they are on a celebrity does not mean i condone this!

  • akprincess72

    Dear heavens, NO!

  • ThaliaMenninger

    The pants look like jammies. I had no idea they were jeans.

  • I love it, and I love the monotone grey/black look. If the jeans were plain, it would be boring, but the grey floral pattern just elevates it enough that an actress in jeans and a sweatshirt can still look amazing, and way better than us mere mortals. As it should be. 

  • Jennifer Hofstetter

    Y’all are smoking crack. Nay.

  • aristida_girl

    I say yea, for this pant, on skinny young things…otherwise, maybe questionable, although I am enjoying the floral print comeback…

  • LordZoe

    Yay. Oh so yay. The only real new trend to hit the high street in a while
