Today I’m actually contributing over at Work Your Wardrobe with some hints about how to wear colored pants. Since I’m featuring my cobalt blue pants over there I thought I’d show you a few more looks here.

Still not a fan of colored pants? What about colored skirts? All the same advice applies!

Have cobalt pants or a skirt in your closet and looking for some other outfit inspirations? Here are a few of my favorites that I will be recreating in the future!



And don’t forget! Any time you have a style question you can ask and I’ll feature it on You Pick Wednesday!

    Is it weird that I think colored pants are too much for me, but I love colored skirts? I’m wearing my bright green skirt as we speak (and I have a yellow one). I usually stick with neutrals on top too, so I like your bright pant looks!

      You’re taller than me so I wonder if that’s part of it. Sometimes I think taller women are afraid of looking like they’re wearing too much color if they wear colored pants. I don’t think it would look like that, but I can understand the trepidation!

    I understand the reticence in wearing bright pants, especially being a taller lady, but after taking the plunge with bright red pants — and feeling AWESOME in them — I am ready for more colors! I like the versatility of blue, especially a rich, cobalt color like this — more unexpected than navy.

      I also think making sure they are a slimmer fit or no longer than ankle length helps keep them looking professional and not like clown pants!

    I love all the blue looks you’ve worn so far– each one is so different and unique! You know I’m partial to the leopard shoes and that wrap bracelet, but the white top with black piping goes great with the blue pants!

    ERIN! Those pants are awesome! I love the color, and I like how they’re colorful without being obnoxious. I love them with the leopard flats 🙂

    I am definitely of the mentality that colored pants (other than red ones, which I love) are too much but I’ll wear crazy-colored skirts anyday. The animal-print shoes are such a great addition to the colored-bottom outfits!

      It’s funny that in three out of the four outfits I posted with my blue pants I’m wearing something leopard print. I guess leopard print and colored pants are made for each other!

    Blue and leopard! I so love that pairing now that you’ve introduced it, it’s so bright and punchy looking, but it doesn’t seem as risque as bright red and leopard. And wooow, does it look like it’s warming up there, it looks so nice and sunny!

    I am really sorry, I’ve been terrible about commenting lately. I need to get back on track with that because I always check your blog but I am really sorry about that. 🙁

      Yes! It was almost 80 degrees that day. Spring is FINALLY here. I hope it comes your way before July 🙂

      No worries about the commenting. We all get busy!
