Hey Fashionistas/os! It may still be winter here in the ‘burgh, but this Fashionisto certainly has a case of spring fever. Paired with a coordinating web belt, he rocks the bright blue chinos. While colored pants have been on the rise for quite a few seasons, they’re especially starting to make a statement this March.

Colored pants are great for bringing a pop of color to any outfit. Men’s clothing can be limited, so wearing bottoms with bold color is a new way to give guys a chance to really show their personality. When I see a guy in bright pants, I automatically associate them being the happiest guy in the room. Having a choice in pants other than jeans and khakis really adds versatility to an outfit. Paired with a crisp white oxford or a plain V-neck T-shirt, bright pants can be worn in a casual setting or something a bit more dressy. Colored chinos aren’t just for the preppy and the adventurous. They set the scene for a taste of personal flare, so whether your style is hardcore grunge or if you’re more of a “jeans and a T-shirt” kind of guy, colored pants are a great addition to your closet.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My advice is to not be afraid to try new things. Especially being a guy, I have a chance to really stand out and make an impression by being just a bit more in tune with my style. Being open to new trends allows me to express myself and look good doing it.”
