I’m going to look at two or three different floral jeans in the next few days – these are pastel, but I’m going to try to find some brighter ones, and some in warmer tones too…My first thought was to choose a soft, flattering color from within the print, and pick a top in that color:

Something that seems basically summer could work for transitional spring days, if paired with a sweater that has a spring color but a colder-weather weight.
A top that includes two of the colors of the print is an obvious choice (but PLEASE unbutton a couple of those buttons, please!!!). And your favorite beige tunic will definitely be a happy choice – toss in a pretty clutch to tie things together.

And finally, you can wear a scarf with these kinds of garments… And I just can’t resist tossing in one more outfit, with SHAMROCK earrings:
