Fall trend #1: Colorful pants

This fall's fashion trends are really fun, so I figured I'd make a little list of them this week. First up, colorful pants! Red, yellow, blue and green jeans are everywhere right now. Would you wear them?

P.S. Four fall trends last year.

Yes I would! I also would only wear the PINK!

Erin said...

I'm currently hunting down the perfect pair of red pants. Something about skinny red pants makes me think Parisian-chic.

Kersey Campbell said...

Do! As much color as I can get, I'll take. I especially love colored jeans on my little guy.

Julia said...

Yay! I wore lavender colored pants today... love them so much :)

Actually that may be one trend I'll pass on.

Joanna Goddard said...

No Drama Mama said...

Can I just say how absolutely in love I am with red pants right now? Never thought I was the type, but I can't get enough!

Jessica Wray said...

love that look. I haven't found a pair that flatter me yet but I'm determined

christinamm said...

Absolutely! I almost bought some red jeans, but I think I'm going to opt for bright royal blue when I can find some!

Abbey S said...

I just started working with a new company, where I was told the dress code is business casual, jeans on Friday. Yesterday, one of the employees was wearing red jean-like pants! I'm not sure if it fits business casual, but I admired her creativity!

Laura @ Hollywood Housewife said...

Yes! I can't wait to be un-pregnant and finally wear cute pants like this again. :)

meesch said...

I want a pair of teal pants so badly! I think they would look adorable with black!

A little more muted than the crazy colors we saw during the summer but I absolutely LOVE them!

Anabel said...

I'm dying for a pair of red pants! I think they are both sexy and playful. I'm also loving the cobalt blue color as well.

Jennifer Armstrong said...

I've been wearing my green pants nonstop since I got them. They're a nice way to have fun with the simple jean and tee outfit.

Diana Mieczan said...

YES! I have a red and a mustard yellow pair. I love wearing them with a simple tee and flats. This girl looks totally adorable! Kisses, Joanna

Briana said...

I LOVE the colorful pants trend. It sucks for me, though, because I am pregnant and will be large-and-in-charge come fall time sooooo.... I probably won't join in on the trend... unless I find a super cute, super maternity pair!!

Amanda said...

I'll never let go of my license to wear bright colored pants, even if they laugh at me, I'll bask in the glow of my trousers ;)

mandyface said...

I try to tell myself I can pull them off...but then I always chicken out lol

Molliee said...

love this trend and can't wait to get more items like it!

courtney said...

I think this is one of those items I would buy because it looks so cute on other women. But then they would just sit in my closet as I pull out my same ol' black ones every day. :)

Jillian said...

Yes!! I just picked up a pair of "bright watermelon" skinny jeans from Gap 1969 and received TONS of compliments. They're totally spunky and on trend, but also wearable. I paired mine with a chambray top with the sleeves rolled up and chunky black platforms.

cristina said...

I recently bought a pair of kelly green jeans and i LOVE them. casual with a nice fun pop. i'm still trying to figure out how to transition to color to fall though..

The Missus said...

I am all for colored pants this fall! I already have them in red, orange and purple. We all need a little color in our lives.

Mighty Burns said...

I think id do more of the blue, or green! not yellow.. couldnt pull it off as cute as it is

Emily Anne said...

I lived in Spain for a year and I swear red jeans are a Spanish staple... every woman (and some men!) had a pair. I love them! Go for it!

Jordan P said...

I just bought some bright red/orange pants and I can't get enough! Wish I could wear them everyday but they're a little too noticeable for that :).

rebecca said...

Your timing is impeccable because that was the Everybody Everywear challenge today! There are lots of ladies sporting their colored denim right here: http://www.everybodyeverywear.com/

Samantha said...

Love these! My office is casual so I find myself wearing jeans almost every day. I need pants like this to break things up a bit!

graciepie said...

Hahaha. Check out my post from yesterday! My OOTD was Wine Colored pants!So, yes, I WOULD wear them!

ElizabethB said...

Eh, don't. I owned a pair of American Apparel's colored pants some years back and I remember how hard that trend fell, quickly too! Tight red pants on a petite body that hit just at the ankles sound nice but none other!

Diana said...

I am in love with this trend, and I am on the lookout for some chic red jeans. It's the colour I can't stay away from.

Amy said...

Yes! It will be a much welcomed departure from my usual gray, navy, black fall/winter uniform. I didn't want to spend $100+ on these, though so I took a pair of J Crew matchstick cords I wasn't wearing and dyed them goldenrod yellow, they look amazing and only cost $2.99 for the dye!

Manding. said...

yes! i'm seeing pops of color everywhere--especially yellow and red which i definitely will try! i'm guilty of wearing all black once the weather drop below 60, so this pop of color is very a+ !

ps, http://amandamantes.blogspot.com !

AM said...

I'm loving the colored pants! Jcrew has a few bright colored cords on sale right now (http://tinyurl.com/67m8v3u) I can't decide between the red or green color :).

Carried Away said...

I would so wear them!!I already have red, green and something similar to the color of the brick. Great blog by the way.

Kiley said...

I love the emerald green jeans but I can't find any that are in my price range. The electric blue ones are cute though!

Jessica Gibson said...

Do! My green jeggings from the gap just arrived in the mail today! So excited to wear them.

Ramblings of a Redhead said...

YES PLEASE!!!!

Jamie Nicole said...

Dylan Drake said...

Colorful pants I am loving! I have been on the hunt for the perfect pink, blue, and green pants. Pair them with a great sweater and boots and you are good to go!

I wish I could pull of yellow but it doesnt compliment my very fair skin.

Sarika said...

fleur_delicious said...

yay! I love it when you do fashion trends!

I actually have a pair of red wide leg jeans and some pink skinnies - if I find a good pair of green ones, though, I'll be in heaven!

Unapologetically Mundane said...

I wore red pants today without even knowing! I'm so ACCIDENTALLY AWESOME.

Jamie @ charmingly ordinary said...

Yes! I feel like J.Crew has been doing this off and on for forever?

Monica from Hola!design said...

I need red pants, man!

Sherrel said...

I would wear red pants!

Trish said...

I think I will pass for me but my 7 year old little boy has some great red skinny jeans that I love on him.

Her name was Lola said...

Amber said...

Quite simply, YES.

I loved all the colorful pants in the September Issue of Vogue. Blue and bright green wool trousers are definitely on my list of Fall pieces to pick up!

Ira Tishakova said...

I love yellow pants! Its just only 1 way to make this autumn more sunny :-)

a displaced floridian said...

Elyssa said...

I am in love with color pants. I have a pair of red skinnys and purple as well... on the hunt for a yellow pair!!! They are perfect for brightening your mood!

*** KITSCH *** said...

I have never had yellow pants but i love the ones of the photo!
A touch of colour for coming fall
great!

ELECTRIC FRINGE said...

Absolutely! I love the skinny ankle length ones I've been seeing from AG and Paige, but this take on the look via chino's is really laid back/east coast! love it.

Jill said...

A solid YES! I love corduroy for fall and the brightest pair I currently have (three years old now) are orange. Though more "burnt" orange than eye-poppingly bright. I can't wait to add some more colored pants to the wardrobe this fall. :)

Pixie said...

Ha! I wore my jcrew yellow chinos today. My co-workers always give me a hard time about my loud pants but I point out to them that I'm a born and bred southerner and we LOVE color. In the winter, I'm usually the only purple-y coat on the subway in a sea of black, grey, navy... lol.

shoegirl said...

I recently bought a pair of red cropped skinny jeans and I love them even more than I expected! Now I'm hoping for some in bright blue...

Mommyblogger said...

I'm definitely on the lookout for a great pair of colored jeans!

Ro said...

Yes! I have a red pair I got at Isabel Marant sample sale.

Nancy said...

I still have an old pair of bordeaux red jeans in my closet. I still wear them because I like them very much!

Love,
Nancy

Niiiiccceee !

jkyw said...

I'm actually VERY into colourful pants/bottoms but I have the tendency to can't sit still in jeans or anything with pockets on the backside. Anyone else?
