Colored Pants, Son
Fellas, I’m here to tell you that you need to rock colored pants.
The ladies have been doing this trend right for a couple of years now, and it’s time for you to step up to the plate.
I bought the red chinos you see below from J. Crew Factory, but if you check any of the quality men’s retailers out there, they’ll have something for you.
If you have had any hesitations with the trend, I’m here to provide three prime situations for the colored pants.
Don’t be discouraged by the rain clouds, the bright pants will look even better under the subdued skies. I suggest a solid pair of rain boots that you can either tuck the pants into or roll up the pants above. A quality rain jacket and your favorite long sleeve shirt should do the trick just fine.
For that perfect fall afternoon with the crisp air, I suggest you pair some variety of a chunky boot with a nice texture. I chose a pair of Sperry’s suede chukka boots, but you can take this look wherever you want. I’m a big advocate of the puffer vest because it gives you a good warm layer, but it doesn’t complete hide whatever great shirt you have on underneath.

While everyone else is stumbling in, make a statement in your Monday morning meeting with your bright pants. A great way to easily dress up the bright pants is to throw on a nice sweater or even a tweed or wool sport coat. White bucks are a great match for many outfits, but they are also perfect for whatever color of pants you decide to wear because they’ll match and compliment the bright color.
