Cheerful Red Pants

I love wearing color, the bolder and brighter, the better. Recently, however, I’ve been shying away from wearing vibrant hues on the bottom. I suppose it’s because I find darker bottoms easier to wear. I’m growing a tad bored with them though. So, this spring, I’m letting cheerful bottoms breathe new life into my wardrobe.

Tunic: Ann Taylor (similar)

Pants: Daisy Fuentes (similar under $30)

Belt: Anthropologie
Clutch: Kate Spade (similar)

Shoes: J.Crew (similar from Madewell)
Ring: Kendra Scott (on sale)

Earrings: Kendra Scott (new for spring)
Watch—Movado (silver styleSkagen option)

Lip: Mac “Heroine” lipstick, Mac “Heroine” lip pencil

I found these red skinny ankle pants in Burlington Coat Factory. They were under $20 and fit so well that buying them seemed like a no-brainer. For the first time wearing them out, I kept the other half conservative by belting a white tunic.

The “Lunel” belt was a clearance purchase in Anthropologie. It’s sold out online, but may still be chilling in a bargain bin in your local Anthropologie. That’s exactly where I found this one for less than $15 (orig. $58).

You’ve seen me wear this Ann Taylor tunic before in the Just Add Accessories post. A white tunic can be such a spring wardrobe essential. It goes with everything.

The only things I like as much as vibrant colors are bold prints. So, I added a couple prints to this look—a striped clutch (J.Crew option) and leopard loafers (Madewell version).


Could your wardrobe use a pair of red pants? One of these styles might be for you:

    I have red pants in my closet right now that I rarely wear, but the mixing of prints you showed here with a simple top has motivated me to make the red pants work. Great post! #BLMGirl
