Once the holiday season begins, the stores are flooded with festive red sweaters, coats, and pants. You may feel comfortable throwing on a red top with jeans or black pants, but it takes a little more confidence to wear bright, red pants! What do you wear with them?
There are two approaches. You can go with a solid neutral top to tone things down, or have some fun with a pattern. Here’s an idea for a casual red pants outfit that’s sporty and modern.
Red is bright and fun, so a natural way to style red pants is to create a sporty look based on the Chalet Chic trend.
This cozy striped sweater has a vibrant, apres-ski vibe. Paired with red pants makes you look like you just stepped off the slopes.
The sweater is ribbed, adding much-needed texture to the smooth, skinny pants.
Chalet chic style is ski-inspired, but it’s also more refined. So I’ve added these luxe black suede booties and my go-to red Gucci bag.
A cozy, lightweight down puffer coat is a great way to finish the look. I love this one because it’s similar to the Burgundy Mackage Parka I bought a couple of years ago. Both are more fitted than a regular parka and give me a slim, streamlined look. Since it’s a neutral color it doesn’t, it doesn’t compete with my red pants outfit.
