#onrepeat: 5 Ways To Wear Red Trousers

Posted In: Fashion

I am starting new series #onrepeat to show how to style the same item in many different ways to create endless outfit ideas for various occasions. I am starting with the piece I am currently obsessed and keep wearing non stop – red trousers.

Look 1 – Power Suit

Red trouser suit is an epitome of power dressing. There’s nothing more empowering than wearing a sharp tailored suit, and even more so when it’s in a bold colour like this red number. An outfit like this definitely makes a statement and projects confidence.

Look 2 – Red  & White 

You have probably seen this outfit here when I was talking about 5 Easy Ways To Build Confidence Through Personal Style. Red and white is a timeless combination which is also the easiest way to start introducing bold colours to your wardrobe. If you are intimidated by wearing bold colours, try pairing any bright colour with white – white will soften the overall look.

I chose to wear white shirt with ruffles – one of the hottest trends of this season. But any white crisp shirt will look amazing. My second choice would be a bit oversized manly shirt.

Look 3 – Red & Pink

Red and pink is the hottest colour combination of this season. It might be unexpected but it is a fantastic way to wear pink without looking girly or childish. It’s a very modern take on pink and I am definitely falling in love with this combo.

Look 4 – Red & Stripes 

Another timeless combination. Any type of stripes look great paired with red. For a modern touch I paired my trousers with top in bold stripes and red accessories. If you are a huge fan of stripes (as I am), make sure you read my post How To Wear Bold Stripes.

Look 5 – Red Trousers & Denim & Trainers

Red trousers is a fantastic piece for your work wardrobe. However you can wear them on your days off as well. Pair it with denim jacket, simple T-shirt and white trainers and you will have a fabulous casual outfit.

    You have styled the trousers beautifully they do look good on you. I don’t think I have the confidence to wear read trousers myself.

    Very nice! Red is my favourite! I would probably wear them with a plain white vest, I couldnt pull off the stripes!

    Such striking outfits – I love the bright red trousers (though am not sure I’d be brave enough to wear them) and the fact they can be styled so many beautiful ways makes them even better 🙂

    The trousers are lovely, and it is great how you have managed to use them in different ways for different looks. They look great with both dark and light tops. And the shoes are amazing too!

    I don’t own many red clothes and certainly not trousers, but those look stunning on you! Love all the different ways of wearing them, too – my two faves are the suit and the casual one with denim!

    I love red trousers, although I downhill you’re brave to wear them with a red top, too!
    I love the last outfit with the bold stripes however I usually year mine with a denim jacket, to tone the trousers down a bit!
