Hot New Fall Trend: Bright Pants

Red, green, purple, turquoise, oh my! Unusual colors have burst forth this season in an unusual way: ladies are wearing trousers in every color of the rainbow… and more. This trend is certainly not for the faint-hearted but, with the right attitude and some serious styling tricks, it can look chic and fashion-forward. Here’s how to style your bright bottoms so you can make a bold statement without looking like you just stepped out of a circus tent.

Neutralize and Balance: Wear a sheer grey or camel blouse with your trousers to avoid sharp color contrasts. Neutral colors downplay bright ones so you can wear unexpected shades without looking too outlandish.

Accessorize minimally: Keep jewellery in the gold, silver, bronze, or gunmetal family, and remember not to overdo it. Bracelets alone are fine, so don’t feel compelled to add chandelier earrings and a bib necklace. The pants are the statement and focal point of this look. Also, don’t carry a big, yellow tote if you are wearing turquoise pants. Keep your purse small and neutral. If you can, carry a clutch.

Simple Shoes: Resist the urge to wear your brightest, most attention-grabbing heels today. This is not the time to break out your feathered Manolos. Nothing looks better with this trend than a pair of classic black patent pumps.

Easy hair and makeup: Maybe you want to put a pop of color on your lids. Fine. But do not, I repeat, do not wear electric blue eyeliner, cotton-candy pink lips, or a lot of blush. If you absolutely cannot contain your urge for more color, even while wearing such a shocking pant, you can try some shimmering eye shadow.

Follow all these steps and you can look unique and bold in a world of black and blue skinny jeans. Be the little trendsetter that you are, and oh, don’t be surprised if it catches on with your friends and coworkers.
