Since I've received my red pants from Stitch Fix two months ago, I've actually worn them quite often. I've styled the pants with the traditional colors (black, white, and blue), but I'm always keeping my eye out for new tops to buy that will go with my red pants, especially for fall.
Here is a top I picked up at Ross in the spring, way before I received my red pants. Isn't it stunning? It has a sheer net Swiss dot panel in the chest and back with pretty red and pink flowers. I guess that's one small way I can combine pink and red together! It also has a little ruffle on the sleeve cap and neckline.
I'm going to wear my strappy red sandals as long as it's still warm, but if the temps were colder, a nude, black, or beige bootie would work with this outfit too. My shoes are from Worthington.
Leopard print always, always, always goes great with red anything! I love to use it as an accent when wearing red. Here I am using a leopard print clutch, but leopard print shoes would work great with this outfit too (see last picture in this post).
For jewelry, I skipped a necklace since I had so much going on with the neckline in the top, and wore black and dull silver bracelets only.
Isn't the detail of this top just stunning? I got it at such a great price. I think I only paid $12.99 for it. If you don't mind digging, and checking back often, you can find a lot of great clothing at Ross.
The top has such a nice length and is just the right looseness. Not too boxy, like a lot a lot of looser fitting tops are. The back is almost as pretty as the front.
Here are some other ways I've styled red pants in this past.
These are the same red pants styled with a light blue top that has a red embroidered design. When going with a completely different color than the pants, it helps a lot if there is some red detail in the top.
Here are the same pair of red pants styled with a white top, but again, there is a little bit of red in the top so the contrast is not too much.
This is the first pair of red pants I ever owned. My, have I aged since this picture was taken. That's what menopause does to you! haha! Anyway, I no longer own these pants. I bought them at Old Navy but I didn't check the washing label when I washed them and they shrunk in the length turning them into capris. So I gave them to my daughter who is shorter than me. That's why I asked Stitch Fix to send me a new pair. I didn't want to take the chance with an Old Navy pair again. Here I styled the red pants with...you guessed it...blue! I wore white booties and added a beige belt to keep the look from getting too patriotic.
And here I styled those same Old Navy red pants with beige and white and leopard print flats.
So what do you think? Which look is your favorite? How would you style red pants? I'd love to hear from you!
