OOTD and OOTN: Bright Pants Trend

September 29, 2011

Good evening beautiful readers!!! I wanted to post today on a couple of outfits I’ve worn this week (one of them incorporating a fall trend: bright pants!) and some ideas on how you can incorporate the bright pant trend into your own wardrobe.

In dressing this week I just pulled a few things out of my closet I’ve had for a while. To run some errands around town my OOTD consisted of a dress from Forever 21. I absolutely love this dress for two reasons: 1) I love brown and 2) it can be worn into the fall with brown leggings, a sweater, & boots.
Dress: Forever 21
Sandals: Forever 21

Now on to one of the big trends this fall: bright pants!

When I have no clue what to wear, one of my favorite websites for fashion inspiration is polyvore.com. Last night when dressing to go to a movie with one of my BFFs I was in need of a little inspiration and came across an outfit I LOVED worn by Victoria Beckham that also incorporated this fall’s trend of bright pants. I absolutely LOVE her style... she always looks so classy and sophisticated.

I thought this would be the perfect outfit for a movie and the perfect way to incorporate bright pants into my look. It was a little chilly so the scarf would be a warm addition but not so chilly that I couldn’t wear cropped pants and a sleeveless shirt. This look is definitely appropriate for “transitioning into fall” and I can’t wait to wear these pants this fall with a long sleeve shirt/blazer as well. I love the challenge of taking a celebrity look and making it my own! So after pulling a few things from my closet I’ve had FOREVER, I came up with this…

Tank top: Gap
Zebra scarf: H&M
Cropped pants: Rampage
Heels: Rampage


Bracelets: H&M

And here are some other outfits I created using Polyvore (look me up: ashleyspassionforfashion) that incorporate bright pants…
