One of the most frequently asked style questions has got to be: “Help! I’m seeing colored pants/denim everywhere but I don’t know how to pull it off!” I understand that color can be intimidating, especially if your wardrobe consists mainly of neutrals, but muster up your courage this fall and make a statement with bold color.
Question: “I’ve seen lots of bright colors in stores this season, and I’m intrigued by them. However, I usually stick to warm colors and neutrals. How do I mix citron green pants into my wardrobe? I’m interested in changing things up, but these colors are a little intimidating and I can’t help but wonder if they’ll look dated after one season.” - Carla Jean
The key with pulling off brightly colored pants is to let them be the focal point of your outfit. If, like Carla Jean, your wardrobe consists mainly of neutrals and darker or warmer colors, pair a classically tailored pant in a bright color with neutrals in your wardrobe that you are comfortable with. This can instantly brighten up your outfit without dragging you too far out of your comfort zone. J. Crew’s Café Capri is a favorite here at Southern Femme and comes in a variety of great colors.

To dress up this look, go for the hot silhouette this fall with an embellished or embroidered peplum top like this one from Zara; but be sure to let the pants do all of the talking by choosing one in a neutral color and sticking to neutral and simple accessories. This look is perfect for a date night or night out on the town with friends.
