4 Ways To Wear: Red Trousers

This is the first post in a new monthly series I am starting in an effort to help you find the versatility in items you already own OR to inspire you to try a new trend.  Brightly colored pants are so hot for spring and before you think you can't pull them off (or would only have one thing to wear them with), take a peek at these different looks I've created using bold red trousers.  For brevity's sake, I've only shown one photo for each look - to see more pictures from this shoot, head over to my Facebook page.  Let me know what item you'd like to see styled 4 ways next month & which outfit below you like the best (my fave is the first one)!


What I'm wearing:
StyleMint tee (here), LOFT trousers (here), ELLE pumps, J. Crew necklace (this season's version here), ASOS clutch


What I'm wearing:
J. Crew blouse (this season's version here), LOFT trousers (here), ELLE pumps, Forever 21 necklace (here), Michael Kors watch, The Limited clutch



What I'm wearing:
Mossimo sweater & pumps (here), LOFT trousers (here), MixIt necklace, Michael Kors watch, RafÄ“ New York clutch



What I'm wearing:
Old Navy blouse (this season's version here), H&M blazer, LOFT trousers (here), BCBG pumps (similar on sale here), Michael Kors watch, Forever 21 bracelet (similar here), Vintage handbag

Love all your looks Kimberly!!! Each one is different and you definitely showcased the versatility of the pants! My favorite is the striped top - that is an AMAZING striped blouse. But honestly, I really love them all. Haha.

Terrie Mathison said...

You look fantastic! I really love them all but the last one draws me in to recreate it! Of course, I need colored pants. I've been slow to hit this trend.

PS: I think I need help scoring the last season bubble necklace via ebay. Able to assist?

Christinah715 said...

I absolutely love all of these outfits... I honestly can't pick a favorite, since they're all so great. Looks like I'll have to add a pair of red pants to my list!
Also, I am DYING for your leopard clutch and the necklace in the third pic!

Fantastic job styling these pants, each look is different! These pants were a hot number and sold out quickly in all of our Loft stores, luckily they've restocked!

Adore the first look! I don't think I'll ever get tired of red and pink. Gorgeous!

Love all the looks but my favorite is the last one. There is something about pairing red pant with a white blazer that make the outfit so chic.
