Out of all the pieces I saw, I took a definite linking to the shorts. At $30, they're a slimmer cut with the slightest bit of stretch and made up of 50% organic cotton. I've been looking for mint colored shorts for ages and haven't found one I liked until now! I ended up liking the fit of the shorts so much I picked up a second pair in navy.
Menswear this spring has been all about colored bottoms. Truthfully, I never thought I'd be into it - but things change. It all began a couple of months ago while editing my closet, I realized that the last 7 pairs of pants I bought were black. That same weekend, I consciously decided to break that pattern and picked up a pair of bright red pants. Honestly, trying them on in the store was kind of daunting for some reason and even after taking them home, I wasn't completely sold on the idea. But, after taking the plunge and heading outside of my apartment with my new pants on, I knew I was hooked. If you're thinking of giving colored pants a go, here's a few things to keep in mind:
- keep it simple up top - no one wants to look like a bag of skittles vomited on them. Basic Ts (black and white) work wonders.
- if you're debating on which color to start with - red is probably your best bet
- feel free to roll your pant legs up - not too much, but shortening the proportion of the pant and breaking up the color of your pants, leg and shoe works really well
- have fun with it!
