Pants On Fire

Pants: Forever 21 Red Pants - (hemmed) 24 (similar)
Purse: Louis Vuitton Bellevue Purse (gifted from parents) (similar)

For some reason, every time I try and figure out an outfit with these red pants, I always tend to naturally gravitate towards a red, white, and blue combo.  And then I realize it's not the Fourth of July yet and  should save that outfit for another couple months.  But then I end up going for something green and realize I look like a Christmas tree and have missed that season by a couple months too.  I tell ya, red pants are little tricksters!

In the end, I ended up swapping out the blue and green colors with a simple gray.  There's no symbolic meaning behind a red, white, and gray combo right?  Let's just hope I didn't end up matching a flag color...  :)

Red anything is a challenge for me...but you did a great job here with the pants. The neutrals on top helped to tone down the red, and the red shoes were a great choice that elongates your legs. Well done, I like it!

RED PANTS are being like 'must have' in 2011.
I gotta get mine :P

How about pairing it with turquoise? I love red and turquoise together!

Those pants are fantastic on you! How crazy is it that you're wearing peep toes in February? That just seems wrong but the weather has been so weird lately!

I have never tried to pull off colored jeans! Looking around blogland they seem really popular right now. I might just have to give them a try!

I just don't know what kind to get though
Yours are adorable

I can see how red pants could be tricky. You pulled it off. I also like black and white with red, especially stripes.

Pearl Girls said... [Reply]

Pretty pretty pants. You are rocking the red.

This outfit is totally appropriate for President's Day. =0P I like how the tiers extend past the original hem, it is a pretty waterfall effect.

I LOVE those red pants!! I've been wanting something like that! I can see how you run into feeling like holidays though. I think you pulled it off perfectly. Love the vest and heels with it.

Hot stuff! Look at you rocking those pants. I really like them with the grey and white tops. It makes it look more natural that way. Let's the red be the focal point, but doesn't make the red look out of place.

I LOVE these red pants! I've been searching for a red skirt forever - mine got destroyed by the washer and I need a replacement - maybe I need to try for red pants instead!

Ski Petite said... [Reply]

Very sassy! I had a pair of red plaid pants I wore out in college a lot and they always made me feel in a party mood.

Jewelscapes Handmade Jewelry said... [Reply]

This is an amazing outfit! I love the shade of red the pants are, and the flowy vest is amazing on its own but such an amazing contrast piece worn with the red pants! Hot combo!!!

Really Petite said... [Reply]

You are seriously rockin' those red pants! Are those the ones you got tailored?

kileen said... [Reply]

@Really Petite Yes! My mom was able to hem it up a good 2". I was afraid that the ankle zipper was going to be a problem, but she just cut it short and I love them! :)

hurricanekerrie said... [Reply]

This whole outfit feels so light and the punch of color makes it a knockout! I really really love the flowy vest!

Cathy Benavides said... [Reply]

Those red pants are amazing!! You look so beautiful and fierce all at the same time. Love it!

MissRockwell said... [Reply]

Oh how I love your red pants. I just scored a pair for myself and I'm trying to imagine the perfect combination!
