I’m usually not a colorful person. I stick to neutrals like you wouldn’t believe. But all of sudden, I’m craving red pants. What’s the deal here? It might be because the color red has been popping up repeatedly all over New York Fashion Week. Or maybe because it was just Valentine’s Day and heart motifs are aplenty. Was it quite possibly the red velvet bundt cake I tested the other day that sent me into a world of chocolately red dye bliss???
I NEED RED PANTS! I swear, red pairs well with every color on the planet: navy, olive green, camel, cream, orange, leopard (yes, leopard is a color), royal blue. I could probably go through the entire color spectrum but instead, I want to show you an outfit that I wish I was currently wearing.
Of course, I would start with these Zara red cropped pants. Then I would add a touch of silk with a J.Crew navy blouse (lusted after here in olive just days ago). Red + navy = get used to it my friends because you will be seeing LOTS of it in the coming months! Over the silk blouse, I would wear this slouchy Topshop sweater. Extra geek chic points for the blouse collar peeking out of the sweater neckline. And then I would add a chunky gold Madewell necklace for pizazz, bright red Topshop lipstick for even MORE pizazz, and a Madewell satchel because it’s probably the cutest thing ever.
You make perfection look so easy… Red is one of my favourite colours but I find it so difficult! I don’t know how a colour can be difficult, but somehow everything other than black and grey seems hard at 7 am…
That satchel is the cutest thing ever.
I saw the red pants in zara. They are nice! Thu had other colors too!
thom yorke loves red pants, ergo i love red pants.
I love the combination of red and some sort of shade of blue (except royal, it looks too patriotic).
