There's no doubt that we've seen a lot of printed pants lately and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. Being a slightly pear shaped lady, I felt a bit reluctant to join in on this trend. However, I did try on these adorable Lela Rose printed trousers and they looked so cute, I nearly laid down my credit card for them. What stopped me, you ask: the hefty price tag. Six hundred ninety-five dollars in fact. Sigh.
Lucky for us, a much more affordable option has been born. Meet Topshop's $80 alternative. For more than $600 in savings, I think I can sacrifice a little name brand luxury if I really need a printed pant.
Don't get me wrong- some pieces can be worth a high price. But, for me, someone who reluctantly met the printed pant to begin with, investing almost $700 just doesn't compute. Would you wear either version?
