Color-blocking my Colorful Pants

When Everybody, Everywhere announced that the next group challenge would be colored pants, I was stoked. I love colorful pants, especially denim. In fact, the hardest part about this challenge was deciding whether to go with my yellow, purple, orange, or pink jeans.

Pink won. Mainly because these are the only pair I hadn’t showcased yet on my blog. I picked these up at JC Penneys for a mere $11 last summer. At the time, I wasn’t sure how I was going to style them, but I didn’t have a lot to lose.

I love the snap detailing at the ankle. I get complimented on these pants a lot. Often, people just say, “wow, those sure are bright!” They’re bright, sure, but they go with a lot. I’ve worn this with white, black, gray, and even stripes of different kinds. Today, I tried a color-blocked look with a solid violet-blue top and marigold ballet flats.

  1. Love the pink paired with the navy! How fun are those buttons at the ankle?

    What fantastic pants! I agree, the snaps are great, and are what drew me to your EBEW entry. 🙂 The rich, saturated jewel-y tones of this outfit are marvelous, and the drape of the top is quite nice too.

    Rock on with your pink pants!

  4. Thanks everyone! The snaps sold me on the pants too. I lucked out with this top. It’s so comfortable but looks dressier than a regular T. It’s also very forgiving and hides a big meal well 😉

  5. The pink jeans are adorable and the snaps! Such a great detail.

  6. The colors work together very nicely!
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

  7. The buttons on those jeans are such a cute touch! I love the raspberry color too. I would love to see how you’ve styled the other colored pants you own 😀

  8. I smiled when this post opened…as I had just “seen” you at Franca’s blog. Makes the world feel very small. I too like the detail on the britches and like you, I’ve found that bright pants do elicit comments…

  9. Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog. Your outfit is like mine but with the colors flipped. I adore hot pink, and you’re right, it does go with so many different colors. You look great, and I can’t believe the price ($11? Wow!).
