5 looks with 1 pair of pants


Recently, a friend of mind purchased a pair of these hunter green Gap slim refined pants. The purchase itself was heavily debated, as the slim cut and slightly stretchy fabric led her to purchase the same pair in black a few months ago, but the color present a challenge. Just what exactly can you wear with green pants?

If you’re asking me, which she did, pretty much anything!

This year’s bold color trend has everyone embracing bright and bold as the new neutral. Nearly any color can act as a neutral, pairing well with prints, patterns and even other bright colors. These Gap pants, similar to my favorite J. Crew Minnie pants, have a slim, tailored look which makes them great for work, play and everything in between. Add a funky tee and some bright accessories for a fun, casual look or a printed, ladylike blouse and bold pumps for a night out. Everyone has a white blouse in their closet, making it an easy outfit solution. Button up shirts are office appropriate, but chambray and leopard are an unexpected departure from the norm. Monochromatic looks are also an excellent option. With these hunter green pants, a breezy mint green top would pair perfectly!

Bold color on the bottom doesn’t mean you have to go safe with your choices on top. Just make sure your colors aren’t competing (neon yellow and neon green is an ode to the 80s) and if you do go for a basic top, punch up your look with fun, bright accessories.
