LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Fancy Pants

Spiders, snakes and calls from your ex-girlfriend are all common fears among the men of today. While completely valid, there is a present fear slowly creeping into this category: the colored pant. What is the reason behind this? I can understand the thought process a little bit — only a little though. There is a common misconception that pants are to be solely basics that are meant to support the other elements of the outfit. It’s time to think outside of this little plain pant box and venture into the world of color.

Wearing colored pants doesn’t have to be a daring venture. You just have to know how to wear it correctly. For starters, when wearing colored trousers, be sure to pair it with simple and solid colors that balance out the outfit. Take this Fashionisto, for example. The pop of his vibrant red jeans is balanced out by the pairing of a simple black V-neck and grey jacket. This simple and unconventional surge of color will undoubtedly set you apart from the rest.

Keep in mind, that when I say “colored pant,” there are many colors in the color spectrum. Don’t discriminate, even a pastel yellow or green chino would offer the perfect touch to stay afloat in the sea of blue jeans and khakis.

Life After Denim is a great brand to start off with when partaking in this daring venture. Their chinos are extremely comfortable, affordable and, not to mention, stylin’. Also take a look at Ralph Lauren, Urban Outfitters and AllSaints for other options as well.

So keep your eyes open: if you see something you like, even if you don’t feel 100% comfortable, try it on. I think you will be surprised. It definitely won't kill you, but your ex-girlfriend, on the other hand, that is a whole different story.
