Truth be told, I was a late adopter of the colored denim trend. Bold and brightly colored pants just didn't seem to fit with my classic style and I told myself I'd just have to pass on this particular trend. But after seeing it pop up everywhere for a few seasons and seeing it styled in different ways, I finally gave in when I saw this pair of extremely reasonably priced green pants. I decided that in order to, as Tim Gunn would say, "make it work" for me, I'd have to use colored pants as the statement piece every time I wore them. I try to wear more neutral colors when it comes to tops and accessories so that it doesn't look like two pieces are competing with each other.
I've found that often times when I wear my green pair of pants, I end up wearing a black shirt. On this specific occasion, Jeff and I were headed out to the movie theater (surprise, surprise) so in addition to the black t-shirt I paired with the pants, I added a black blazer to keep warm inside the air conditioned theater. In keeping with the neutral top and accessories theme, I added a gold headband. But then I did something I don't normally do when I wear colored pants. I added a bold print in the form of animal print flats. I'd been dying to wear animal print because it's fall and because I was wearing so much black, I felt like the print helped to balance everything out without feeling too loud, at least by this classically styled girl's standards.
