What To Wear With Red Pants – 15 Styling Ideas

Whether you have to attend a business meeting, a party, a casual luncheon, or a game, you can sport red pants anywhere. So here are some outfit ideas that you can around play with.

1. Red Pants With Black And White Striped Top


If you are starting wearing red pants for the first time, pairing them with a black and white striped T-shirt is a good idea. It makes for a great office outfit. You can also switch out the T-shirt for a sleeveless turtleneck or a full-sleeved sweater. Finish off the look with red pumps.

2. High-Waisted Red Pants And Blue Shirt


High-waisted trousers are having a moment right now. They create a great silhouette and up your chic quotient effortlessly. Team them with a light blue button-down shirt, tuck it in, and show ‘em how it’s done!

Have dinner plans but not in the mood to put in any effort? Pull out those red leather pants, a white one-shoulder top, and red pumps. You are dinner-ready in less than 5 minutes! Don’t forget to put on some red lipstick though.

4. Red Pants And Printed Shirt


Let out your inner nerd with a pair of ankle-length trousers and a printed shirt. Tie your hair in a slick bun and put on big glasses or shades and black pumps. You can throw on a sling bag for good measure, too.

5. Red Pants And Striped Shirt


Feel free to play with patterns by subtly moving away from the usual. Pair your tapered red pants with a long striped shirt. Put on a wide black belt to cinch in your waist and take the outfit a notch higher.

6. Red Palazzos And Black Top


Ditch your regular fitted pants for some Bohemian vibes. Pair red palazzos with a simple black top and a red stole to create this boho-chic lool. A floral pashmina or a silk scarf goes well with this vibe as well.

7. Red Culottes And Tan Sweater

Let go of the stereotypical formal outfits a little bit and try something new. Red ankle-length pants with a muted tan sweater look understated and suave. A pair of kitten hills and a cute little bun are a great way to finish off this outfit.

8. Red Cigarette Pants And Black Crew Neck

Sport some high-street fashion without looking overtly jaunty. A black crew neck sweater or bodysuit with red cigarette pants and ankle strap heels is a great way to own this look.

9. Tapered Trousers And Crop Top

This matching trousers and crop top look is one that you absolutely need to try. It screams party but not in a way that’s too in your face or flashy. You need no accessories to pull off this look. Just a clutch and pumps will get the job done!

10. Red Checkered Trousers And Tank Top

11. Wide-Legged Red Trousers And White Pleated Top

Wide-legged trousers in a burgundy, wine, crimson, or brick red are an interesting choice if you want to tame the red a little bit. Pair them with slick chiffon pleated top or a silk blouse to create an elegant look. You can throw on a beige blazer or a leather jacket and carry a clutch if you are headed to a party.
