How To Wear Colored Pants, Especially If You're A Little Scared To Try Them

Time to let go of your blue jeans.

Colored pants may look intimidating at first, but stop panicking and focus instead on all the fun, fashionable ways to wear and rewear them!

If you’re not sure where to start, below is a list of colored pairs you can buy, and the styling options to match.

VEGETARIAN: eggplant, carrot, brown

Wear this with a white shirt, which is the safest choice in the world, or a soft beige button-down shirt. After all, staying in theme with the farm/barn reference makes sense.

Got the guts to wear a monochromatic lewk? Pair your veggie-colored trousers with a top in the same hue but different fabric, e.g. a silk blouse with relaxed sleeves, and a bright heel to give a luxurious feel to your ootd.

NEW UTILITARIAN: army green, grey

How about a bold blue top with your army green pants? Blue and green may not exactly be a top-of-mind choice, but the combination is refreshing. Also try a bright coral pink to look totally summer-ready, or put on a classic black-and-white striped button down to keep the look timeless.

BETTER THAN BLUE JEANS: light blue, cyan, navy

Look refreshingly resort-ready by wearing a dove gray top over your light blue trousers. Slip into a pair of boyish loafers to complete the look. Likewise, a soft gray top would look neat with a navy blue pant, but for the shoe, try something printed, e.g. a polka-dotted wedge sandal or gingham espadrilles.

RED ZONE: burgundy, maroon, rust

Wear tops of the same color spectrum: red on red, pink on pink, pink on red, you get what we mean. It's been done before and many times over, but we still approve! The choice is always so bold and confident, and who doesn't want that? Also try a yellow polka dotted top with a pussy bow, for an old vintage appeal.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL: luxe fabrics in bright colors

Okay, we 100% approve wearing your old plain white tee with a pair of bright, outstanding pants. To find the right pair, get one in a luxe fabric, such as satin, or choose a very trendy color, like lime green. The scarier the notion of wearing it seems, the better.
