The trick to wearing bright pants is to pair it with neutral colors. I mean, it's totally fun to wear them with contrasting colors (or even go for the monochromatic look), but when you just want to run out the door and not spend 5 hours figuring out what colors look good together, neutrals are the way to go. I chose to wear a gray top and tied the outfit together by wearing black wedges with a black and white necklace. Easy breezy! 

Here are a few awesome bright-colored pants for you, and the best part is - they're all under $60! My pair can be found here.  Start getting colorful with your wardrobe, ladies!

  1. Neat trick. I love brights but am always intimidated to wear them. I'll try it with the neutrals.

  13. I like to wear bright pants with bright everything else, but other people don't seem to agree with me... time to go style my new, darker red pants that are replacing my cherry red ones!
