One of the biggest trends in menswear over the last two seasons has been colored pants! It’s been all over the runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York, and it’s been featured on billboards by all the major retailers and designers! This trend has to be one of my personal favorites of all time and I can see myself incorporating colored trousers into my look often. This trend has really forced men to push the comfort zone of their style, but a lot of the guys I talk to are still quite hesitant to adapt a colored pant into their wardrobe. A lot of the time, men are hesitant to try out new trends because they may be unsure how to wear them or they think they’ll look like a fool if they wear a particular trend the wrong way. For these reasons I’ve put together a casual look featuring one of the best trouser colors available: red!
Red tipped polo shirt – Le Chateau
Red slim chinos – (store in NYC)
TIP: I am a big fan of tipped polo shirts! A tipped polo is a golf shirt with a contrasting color or a pattern on the collar and sleeves of the shirt. They’re easy to wear and also look great paired with colored trousers!
Wingtip loafers – Thrifted
no-show socks – H&M
TIP: I love wearing my shoes sockless in the summer, but when those shoes come off, my feet are usually sweaty and stinky. I’ve tried powders to try and fix the problem but nothing really worked until I found these no-show socks! They provide a thin layer to keep your foot from directly touching the leather sole as well as absorb moisture like a normal sock! Pick a pair up and you won’t regret it!
TIP: When wearing a very bold piece such as a colored trouser always keep the pieces you pair with it very neutral. If you want to add another color, use it as an accent so it doesn’t compete with the bold color of your trousers.
