If you haven’t bought yourself a pair of bright coloured or printed pants, you’re falling behind the trend. Local socialites and international celebs are spotted wearing these fun lowers that spruce up any humdrum shirt.
We are so relieved that ladies are catching on and wearing coloured skinnies out and about. Half the reason why red carpet events are fun is because we get to see fashionistas sporting the latest trends. You could either throw on some funky metallic sandals, a sleek structured top, and that classic-yet-edgy leather jacket for an all-around electric feel with your pants. Steal a page from Kate Middleton’s style book and pair your brightly coloured skinny jeans with something classic and preppy like a navy blazer (it works for the Duchess of Cambridge!)
Orange and coral skinny jeans and pants go well beautifully with dark neutrals like navy (black looks too Halloweenish), white, denim and other brights like yellow or cobalt. Match the intensity of red pants with another bright colour, like hot pink — the effect is a hip color-block effect that would also work well with another bright like yellow or orange (maybe bring it in the form of bright shoes or a handbag.)
