I have been in love with cherry red all summer. And no better way to share my first IGTV video than with ways to style this colour. While I stick to more laidback looks, I do tend to enjoy exploring my style and being experimental. Red is conventionally known to be difficult to style or repeat due the starkness of the colour. However, you can play it down and keep it relaxed with neutrals or go wild with prints. Watch my IGTV video and get tips on how to style your red pants.
Stay Safe With Neutrals
I chose not to diverge from my personal style and paired the pants with black and white neutrals. However, I kept it interesting in three ways. From wearing a white tied detail shirt making it the perfect day to night outfit to wearing a white sweatshirt with exaggerated sleeves, absolutely appropriate for the coming autumn months. I adore small details such as scalloped edges as seen in the third look. This outfit works wonderfully for a casual work environment as well. I stuck to the same classic neutral colours for my footwear. Nude heels would help elongate your legs if you are on the petite side, making you feel more confident in the bold coloured trousers.
Add A Jacket
Adding a classic black leather jacket or blazer with some leather trimmings can lift your look and make it very high fashion. This wardrobe essential is easy to pull off as the style works for everyone, regardless of your height or body shape. Put your hair into a sleek ponytail and wear your favourite white sneakers with this outfit for a smart glam day look.
I would normally wear my prints with simple neutral trousers and skirts but I took a leap and I couldn’t be happier. My advice would be stick to smaller prints in order to avoid an overly dramatic outfit and keep your accessories to the minimum. I opted for this leopard print bodysuit with ruffles to add a romantic touch to the red pants and kept the footwear casual. I definitely look the happiest in this experimental outfit!
