Four Ways to Rock Red Pants in the Office

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Remember these pants I styled for date-night? Ever since I wore them, I knew they would be appropriate for the office. Honestly, if I worked at a corporate office I would probably live in high-waist wide leg pants. I think of them as elegant, stylish and powerful and every time I see a woman wearing them that’s exactly what I think of her.

I found a different pair, because the ones from my last post were sold out, and styled them 4 different ways. I included things that may already be in your closet with some additions to make it more stylish.

how to wear colored pants to work

Red for the Office Outfit #1: Monochromatic

Don’t be afraid of going for all red. It’s an elegant way to make a statement and make you look taller. You can go for the same shade in all like I did, but it would be really interesting to mix different shades of red.

Pants – Topshop Belted High Waist Wide Leg Trousers –  These pants look very flattering and that shade of red is gorgeous.

Top – Everlane Cashmere Mock Neck Crop Sweater – I really love a crop sweater when I’m wearing high-waisted pants. A crop that is just a little bit shorter than a regular sweater. They look better tucked in and less bulk is always nice. It also comes in a more vibrant red.

Bag – Michael Kors Top Zip Large Tote – This color is on sale at the moment.

Shoes – Free People Cecile Booties – I still have to try these booties for myself but I know Shana loves them and says they are really comfortable and walkable. Or I’m also loving these that are part of the Nordstrom Fall sale.

Red for the Office Outfit #2: Modern Classic

I like to update the “sweater over button-down” by layering a cropped sweater over a shirt. I think it works both ways: with the shirt tucked or untucked. Two different but cute looks. I decided to go with leopard shoes to break all the solid colors and add an extra edge to the outfit.

Pants – Topshop Belted High Waist Wide Leg Trousers –  These pants look very flattering and that shade of red is gorgeous.

Sweater – Topshop Cable Knit Crop Jumper – One of those pieces that looks good dressed up or down. I love this type of sweaters with high-rise jeans. Comes in more colors.

Top – J. Crew Stretch Perfect Shirt – This shirt is claimed to be perfect. Reviews say the same.

Shoes – Sam Edelman Kinzey Pointy Toe Bootie – Love this heel. Comfortable and elegant and something you can still wear in a casual way.

Red for the Office Outfit #3: Bomber jacket for the office

I needed to include an outfit with a white shirt and the tweed bomber jacket is exactly what I was looking for to pair it with. I forgot to include a silk neck scarf in the collage.

Pants – Topshop Belted High Waist Wide Leg Trousers –  These pants look very flattering and that shade of red is gorgeous.

Top – J. Crew Stretch Perfect Shirt – This shirt is claimed to be perfect. Reviews say the same.

Jacket – Rebecca Taylor Tweed Bomber – No words needed. You can go for this Ann Taylor for less.

Shoes – Vaneli Sling Back Pumps – No need for high heels when you can look amazing in these comfortable sling backs.

Red for the Office Outfit #4:

A beautiful blouse in a print fabric with ruffles make everything prettier. I would totally wear a leather biker jacket on top but if you want to keep it more corporate a blazer on top is best.

Pants – Topshop Belted High Waist Wide Leg Trousers –  These pants look very flattering and that shade of red is gorgeous.

Top – H&M blouse with ties – I love the combo of red and light blue, however you can totally go for another print. This one comes in black too.

Blazer – J. Crew Parker Blazer – Modern and nice-fitting blazer in a wool blend.

Pumps – Franco Sarto Block Heel Pumps – I love stilettos, but a block heel and the piece of mind that my feet will suffer less wins a thousand times.

 

Hope you give red pants a go for your work wardrobe.
