I absolutely love spring and summer because of the nice warm weather and because I can wear sandals and as much colour as my heart desires!
I have always wanted a red pair of pants and wasn't sure I could pull one off. But I thought if anyone can pull it off, it would be me :)! I also figured if I wasn't sure how to pull it off, then I'm definitely not the only one.
I have styled this red straight leg pants in 4 different ways to help you go from work to an evening out.
This post features the evening out styles. Imagine the pants almost as a neutral colour, like you would a pair of black pants. It's okay if you are not sure about red, there are so many other colour options like khakis, green etc. This is a great time of year to experiment and add some colour to your closet.
Style 1: Classy evening out
This look is perfect for date night, networking dinners and so much more. I did classic monochrome look of black and white, with the pants as a pop of colour. This is very easy to achieve and you can never go wrong with black and white. The gold details on the blouse and sandals add the perfect touch to finish off the look.
When you shop, look for items with little details that make the piece pop. An interesting fact about the sandals - they are plain black, the bow is a clip-on called a "shoellery" - shoe jewelry. It just takes them to the next level! I kept the accessories to a minimum and added on a sleek black clutch to maintain the classy look.
Style 2: Casual evening out
This look is perfect for a more casual evening out with friends or any semi-casual event. Yellow is definitely one of the trending colours this spring and summer. It is just a happy colour and it adds some fun to any outfit. Keep in mind you don't have to match your bag and shoes, I just love these sandals and bag so much!!!
Fun fact about the purse and shoes, the bag cost me $12.00 from a consignment store and the sandals cost me $15.00 from a thrift store, 3 years ago. You can't beat that! Looking stylish and fabulous doesn't have to break the bank!
Stay tuned for how to style red pants for work! Remember that your confidence is the most important part of an outfit! Celebrate this spring with colour!
