the red pants

I’ve been on the hunt for red pants for what seems like forever. I got close to finding the perfect pair a few weeks ago at my beloved Loft Outlet. There was a pair of beautiful cranberry-colored straight jeans on sale for $20…the only trouble was that they were sold out of my size. I tried a couple different sizes from the petites section, but at 5’6″ I’m just not proportioned right for petite sizes.


So then I turned to eBay, where I managed to find a similar pair for just $14. Score! Just in time for Christmas. For the first wear, I decided to pair them with my jewel collar tee and a knit blazer. It ended up being the perfect outfit for some last minute Christmas shopping with Mom!



striped jewel collar top {Crown + Ivy via Belk}, gift similar

red straight jeans {Loft via eBay}, $14 similar

black knit blazer {Merona via Target}, old similar

black wedges {CL by Laundry via DSW}, $25

How would you wear red pants? I need inspiration!

  1. Ooh, your red pants look great in this outfit! I’d probably be pretty boring with red pants and only wear them with black, white, and gray…but I’m weird about pairing colors together, haha.
