Americana



I was looking for ways to wear these pants other than with black, white or grey. I did a Google search, and came across a comment describing one of Carrie's outfits from Sex and the City: red pants, a white blouse, and a light blue jacket. I had all of those items in my closet, so here's my version.

I also came across the suggestion of tan and beige and brown with red pants. Any other suggestions for what to wear with bright red skinny pants that have a bit of a sheen to them?

Where:
work

What:
Jacket: J. Crew (the only item I own from that store)
Pants: H&M (clearance for $5)
White Button-Down: Moda Int'l for Victoria's Secret
Navy Heels: Newport News
Bird-Shaped Shell Earrings: gift

  3. Wow@ I love this. These pants are awesome!! I love red - and need a red skirt!!

    I would honestly wear them with anything that I would normally wear jeans with.

    Also:
    - A navy and white striped top
    - Fuschia
    - Black and White graphic prints
    - Brown and TEAL
    - Tiffany Blue
    - Buttercup Yellow and White
    - Pearl Gray and Cream
    - Pale Blue and Denim Jacket

    I could think of one million things hehe. But you know I LOVE color! :-)

  4. Love the pants on you! Oh I wish I could wear tight colorful pants too (But my hips and tighs makes me look oh so short when I try to. They need more room)

    I'm with Bianca, fushia can look amazing with red. I think a dark purple can also look amazing or a bright orange even. And I think these are the kind of pants that would be great paired with a tunic or short dress, if you want to mix it up.

  6. I love love love this outfit! Its probably one of my favorite of yours, you look so chic! Hmmm, what to wear with red pants? I think I would go with a nautical look and pair it with a white & blue stripped top and a blue scarf!

  7. I love these pants on you. Have you considered a purple top? A brighter purple, maybe with a black jacket? I've seen Sal from Already Pretty rock the red and purple before and you would probably pull it off really well.

  9. I really love this look! The color combo is unexpected but very chic and pulled together. I second (or third or fourth) the suggestion of a nautical look with blue and white stripes.

    I also think a print with a variety of colors- some red, pink, even purple- would look great. Anthropologie has some soft, textured tops in prints that might be worth trying, like these:
