Seeing Red (Pants)

As much as I love styling clothes online and shopping, sometimes I have to push myself out of my own comfort zone and make myself try something new.  This season, I decided to go crazy (ok, slightly more stylish) and try some red pants.  After much consideration, this pair from Loft fit the bill perfectly:

I scored them for about $41 last week, and they're now nowhere to be found online.  The cut makes my curvy self look much thinner, especially when I roll them up a bit above the ankle bone. And in case you're thinking that you can't pull off red pants, here are some ways that this colored pant novice is branching out:

Red Pants at Work

These aren't my exact pants (LOFT, please photograph things without models!)  or my exact J.Crew boat neck but this is the look I'm wearing to my (casual) office.

Red Pants Shopping

I also like pairing my pants with my leopard henley from LOFT (similar cut, but slightly darker print than the blouse in the set) and brown and gold accessories.

Red Pants Vacation

I also plan to wear my pants on our upcoming Thanksgiving trip, since they're soft and stretchy.

Hopefully this gave you a little bit of courage - is anyone else ready to  branch out?
