Sitting back at my London desk, I was looking through my archive of real life inspiration pictures and I stopped at a picture from a lady wearing bright red pants (or trousers as the British would say).
Who knew that the British have such a love/hate relationship with this piece of garment?
Anyway, all this debate is not relevant for us ladies. Thank goodness, because bright red pants are actually a really fun item to spice up your fall and winter wardrobe! The only question is…what to wear with red pants?
Leather pants have become a wardrobe staple worn as freely as a pair of dark denim. They are no longer limited to the skinny, cropped variations of previous seasons either, but come in all sorts of variations now (even as sweatpants)!
If you want to stick to leather skinnies, do me a favor and make sure to buy the right size. Never buy leather pants a size too small hoping they will impress your date with their tightness or motivate you to get slimmer. It doesn’t work.
A very good idea, on the other hand, is to wear something more demure on the upper half. If you go too sexy and figure-hugging on the top, you are risking losing the chic and will end up looking cheap.
Layering is another great way to dress leather down: a chunky knit sweater or a flowy shirt topped off with a simple blazer. Add a pair of sleek ankle boots and understated accessories, and you’ll have a winning combination that is polished, yet super trendy.
