What does one crave on rainy days? Anything but gray.
This week’s Fashionista certainly keeps the bland skyline out of her outfit with purple pants that are anything but dull. Accessorized with an antique ring from her grandmother, gold chain sleeve details and TOMS, this rainy day outfit is perfect for one glaring detail: you can’t even tell it’s for a rainy day without the umbrella. And like most people, we’re all trying to forget that it’s flooding from the heavens, so any outfit that takes us anywhere else is exactly what the meteorologist ordered.
With spring on the way amid the torrential downpours, the stores are full of the kind of Crayon box colored pants that make this outfit so great. The skinny mini skimmer khakis from Gap are my favorite for their bright chartreuse pair and the Electric Blue Lemonade pair from Marc Jacobs are sure to give the eyes a shock of color when the sun is hiding behind the clouds. The brighter, the better!
One Simple Change: With a change of shoes and a nifty clutch, this outfit is perfect for meeting the parents. My vote is for one with an origami-inspired print, like this clutch from Camilla, to match with the bold colors of your bright bottoms. Paired it with black pointy-toed pumps and there’s no way you won’t leave a colorful impression—whether you remember to introduce yourself or not.
