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.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/judi-townsend/578042503 judi townsend

          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

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

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

      • LuisaNL

        agree, an easy chair at the very least.

      • http://www.facebook.com/janet.selman Janet Selman

         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.

      • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

        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.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

        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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      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.  

      • http://twitter.com/ryenerman rynerman

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

      • http://twitter.com/ryenerman rynerman

         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.

    • http://sharpandkeen.wordpress.com/ Katie

      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 ;)

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OD35QQZNBPZJXWTCBY7N4EE7VY Sarah

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

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5WKLKGER4FZ7MJX43OSYDBDPOE Maggie

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

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      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!

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

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

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      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!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/M2D277JWFM4BUI7PWTTGYM67XI Mathilde

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

    • https://profiles.google.com/104791269167429064986?hl=en&tab=h Judy S

      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.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_B53PQYXSJR4YJBV3J6BWYSICRQ Jamie

      YEA – still an 80’s girl at heart

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      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

      NAy.

    • 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. 

    • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

      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.

    • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

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

    • janetjb

      Yea!

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

       

    • http://twitter.com/watchinginkdry Dr Skylaser

      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.

    • http://twitter.com/democracydiva Democracy Diva

      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!!!!

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

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

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      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! 

    • http://twitter.com/stopENtalk Brittany Johnstone

      Yay.

    • guestela

      bleh. nay.

    • unbornfawn

      For the young and thin

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      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

      Yea!!

    • 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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

      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.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

      Nay. 

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      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. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1043171034 Tadiana Walton Jones

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

    • http://profiles.google.com/yifatshaik Yifat Shaik

      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

      yea

    • http://twitter.com/anacedillo Ana Ced

      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. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      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

      Yea.

    • Kimberly Southern-Weber

      no.
       

    • lesmaha

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

    • http://twitter.com/onetimeko maybe more

      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.

    • NICHOLAS PASQUALE

      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. :(

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

      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.

    • http://twitter.com/Eovaai Eovaai

      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

    • http://www.facebook.com/brendan.foehr Brendan Foehr

      NO! IT’S NOT 1992 AND I WON’T GO BACK! WHAT NEXT?! TOILE? EPAULETS?

    • 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.

    • http://twitter.com/carelessriver Cassie (C.M.W.)

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

    • bellafigura1

      YAY and yea!

    • R. L.

      Yea!

    • 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!

    • http://twitter.com/weird_cowgirl anna

      This makes me think of people in the grocery store.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

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

    • Sophie Collier

      THOSE floral jeans?  Cute.  

    • SatelliteAlice

      YEA!

    • http://www.facebook.com/tom.r.markiewicz Tom Markiewicz

      yea.

    • Louise Bryan

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

    • bailey debruynkops

      YEAY

    • 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.

    • http://twitter.com/arianapenny Ariana

      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
