Styling Inspirations: Red Pants

It's truly rare when pants make you look beautiful. Sure, they can be classic or edgy, cropped with flats like Audrey or slim with pumps and while all of that is pretty, its still very ordinary. I simply love the trend of colorful denim and what it can do in terms of style and flair- I particularly love red pants.

Red Pants Styling Tips:
  • As you can see from all these looks red pants go great with Black, White and Cream. When you find the right pair, start by pairing it with any and all black, white or nude shoes you own.
  • Based on what pairing you like adjust the length of the pants to go with your shoe's height and type by rolling the cuff or hemming if you want a permanent length. No matter what shoe you pick your pants length should make your legs look long and lean (be sure not to cut off at any akward length).
  • Then start pairing with basic tops and layer jackets and jewelry- basics are great because you don't want to overpower the red pants.
Have a lovely day everyone!
