So picture this, I’m walking thru my living room and my mom gets my attention by saying, “Red pants?” and I reply with a wry smirk, “Yes mom, red pants.” This Spring/Summer, discover RED! Colored jeans and pants have been around for a while, but it seems like before that you had to be a little over-the-top, or a slight attention hog to bust ‘em. This season, red has jumped ahead in the color-game for bottoms because of their bold, yet subtle statement; they just scream, “Cool!”
So here’s how you transform a color that was once primarily for accenting, into the secondary focal point of what you put on. (Just for the record, we believe people should notice YOU before your outfit, that’s why we call it a secondary focal point.) —>
•Be sure to wear your red pants with a top that doesn’t take away from what you’ve got going on down there….the pants of course!
•With these vibrant trousers, the mindset is to let them take the lead, so everything else needs to be toned down a bit.
•Pairings with grays, black, and navy are all game and if you want to go for more, we’ve found out that red pants and a black or navy gingham patterned shirt works great.
•As we’ve said before “shoes > sneakers”. We prefer black or brown loafers or a pair of top-siders with these.
