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!

Your latest look is a stunner, Amy. Those shoes are what these trousers need every time, it's almost like the top is immaterial whether trousers and shoes to get create such a striking outfit on their own! Happy weekend hugs, x.ReplyDelete
P.s. you look even lovelier now!
Awww, thank you. You are so sweet! Your P.S. is what every aging woman needs to hear!Delete
I remember about 7 years ago seeing red pants everywhere and thinking I was too old to wear them. Then I had a patient tell me to try it, so I bought a pair. Fast forward to blogging, and I think they are a staple. Who knew that a pair of red jeans could make you feel so good??ReplyDelete
You've styled these perfectly every time, Amy!!
That is so funny you would think you were too old to wear a color. But then again I remember reading on a fashion post years ago how older women shouldn't wear yellow pants. It's so silly. It's just a color, anyone can wear it! I agree, red pants, like white jeans, have become a staple. As my photos tell, they have definitely stood the test of time! Thanks so much Jodie!Delete
That top is gorgeous Amy, I'll have to plan on visiting Ross when out of town (of course we don't have one locally!)ReplyDelete
My favorite outfit with red pants is the one with the floral blouse and today's outfit a close second.
I wonder if something like a Khaki green or a mellow moss (old Stampin Up color) type green would work with red pants too? As long as the shade of green is not Christmassy...
Thank you! Good idea to visit a Ross when traveling. I use to do that all the time till we got a store in our hometown. You are right about the green. I have seen photos of olive green with red. But I think my red pants might be too bright to wear with an earth tone like moss or olive. The reds I've seen that work with it are a bit duller.Delete
There is something about red and black that is so sexy! I have a pair of red ones from the Loft and you have given me an idea of how to style them! You look fabulous!ReplyDelete
I'm loving all this inspiration! I have a pair of red jeans that I like to pull out. They can be hard to wear though. I am getting some great outfit ideas!ReplyDelete
Glad this post inspired you to get out your red jeans. Thanks for visiting!Delete
Great color! Have a fabulous weekend!ReplyDelete
The last two looks are my favourite - but the red trousers look great every time! You look wonderful in them xx MariaReplyDelete
Thanks Maria! I will have to rewear those last two looks this fall.Delete
I bought my first pair of dress pants in over a decade this spring, you guessed it, they were red! I remember I wore them with burgundy/purple and tonal reds. So fun! I really like you were able to find tops with red accents. Great inspiration!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you bought red pants! What a great idea to wear them with those colors. I should try that instead of always contrasting my top and bottom.Delete
Thanks for sharing your post at the Top of the World Style linkup party. Again you look so cute in all those looks that you presented!ReplyDelete
