I like all of them but 1 & 2 resonate- I do like 3 but the Leatherish jacket is too "un" seasonal for a crop pant.

Paisley is on of my favorite prints, but not all versions in all colors. I prefer the gold/yellow version of the print.

Paisley motifs are really “fun” to crochet. I use them frequently.

I like the first two outfits. Not a fan of the third, and absolutely HATE the shoes. Those are just awful!

@MacDUFF : Nay on all 3 looks- and I love blue.

They break the woman's form in half. In addition, paisley prints on clothing look OL. I have never seen a young woman, stylish or otherwise, wear anything paisley. This was brought to my attention by both my stylish, 20-something year old sons and I agree with them. Even a young, tall thin woman can't make these looks work. The pics look to me like she is trying too hard.

Re: Paisley Pants: Yay, Nay, or...

I am neither tall and thin or young and I have owned many pairs of paisley pants over the years.  Mine have always been the classic look like the first blue and white ones.  I LOVE the look.

 

The rest of the look hippy dippy, boho, and none of that appeals to me.  Yes, I had a pair of red bell bottoms in the 70's but nothing like that since and I was very thin then.

 

I think paisley is a wonderful look if done in a less loud and flashy way, like the first ones.  Talbots is a great resource for that kind of look, and usually has some really nice printed pants!  And skirts!  Such a summery look to me!

I've never seen paisley pants flatter anyone who wasn't very tall, very thin, and very young.  Nice on upholstery, though.

I have to pick none of the above. I love paisley but not in a pant. In general, I wear very few printed pants. The pants and jackets are ok, but not something I would wear. I like the navy handbag and top. I don’t like the shoes at all.

I'm 72 and "grew up" with this. I hated it then and still do!

Re: Paisley Pants: Yay, Nay, or...

Yay, re: true paisley.   In slim-ish or straight leg pants.

 

Nay re: wide/bell bottom prints.
