Let's Hear it for the Boys

Feeling a little hot? Since last spring we have seen boldly colored pants walk down the runway and into stores. In the summer we saw every colored pant under the sun, but now that winter is in full force, we usually see these festive colors be subdued to blacks and grays.  However, this winter has placed the color red amongst the more conservative tones. It’s time to spice up this chilly season with a pair of red pants!

This Fashionisto’s outfit definitely calls for attention. With pops of red and metallic, I was instantly drawn in. It’s refreshing to see bright pops of color during these dark, gloomy days. Colored denim is a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit, but be careful; wearing something as bold as red requires toning down elsewhere. This Fashionisto does so perfectly by pairing his hot red pants with winter’s more conventional colors of gray and black. A simple gray tee and a black cardigan tone down the red and make it more wearable for this winter season.

To complete the look, incorporate metallic shoes for another daring twist. Chic and fashionable, metallic shoes come in many different designs. For those who are more casual, this sneaker shape would still set your look apart from the rest. Appropriate for either a busy day of classes or a night out, metallic shoes are a great addition to any wardrobe.

Hint: With pants this bold, the rest of your outfit needs to chill. You can color block with a solid colored belt or pair those loud legs with neutral standards like a light gray jacket.
