After living in sweatpants and leggings for what felt like an eternity, we're pretty excited to see fashion taking a more exciting turn, particularly in the pant department. Plenty of riskier styles have risen to fame over the past year—think built-in G-strings and hip-baring pelvic cutouts—but we come bearing good news. Red pants are the new trend in town, and they're (thankfully) much easier to pull off while still lending your look a sartorial punch.
Whether cherry red or burgundy, leather or denim, fashion people everywhere have swapped out their neutral-toned bottoms for those of the more vibrantly hued variety. We scoured our feeds to see how our favorites are styling the trend and rounded up seven looks we're trying to copy ASAP. From full-monochrome ensembles to expertly mixed and matched colors and prints, keep scrolling for all the red-pants-outfit inspo you'll need and, of course, to shop each look for yourself.
Now red doesn't have to be so in-your-face—take this sleek monochrome burgundy look, for example. If all-over bold hues aren't your thing, deeper tones are a subtler way to lean into the trend.
We'll be upgrading our basic black skinnies with this shiny burgundy pair.
Quilted jackets are having a moment, and this cozy longline bomber makes for the perfect lightweight option, no matter the season.
Y2K-inspired mesh tees are everywhere right now, and we love how this one looks paired with vibrant leather pants. Tone down the boldness by throwing on a neutral-colored coat.
Everyone needs a pair of bold (faux) leather pants, in our opinion.
Tailored trousers can really elevate an otherwise casual look. Your proof is above. We also love how this sweater and button-down break up the darker tones.
Is there a better color combination than black and red? Simply put, this look is the epitome of chic.
Welp, we're definitely inspired for our next party look. Red, orange, ruffles, and tulle—need we say more?
A pair of red cigarette pants can seamlessly transition from day to night.
This sheer top is a dream.
A Canadian tuxedo, but better. We love how this fire-engine red is accented by a pop of blue, and the neutral handbag goes with each piece perfectly.
We're loving the relaxed fit on these cherry-red jeans.
Sure, mixing punchy primary colors with leopard print may not be for the faint of heart, but this look reminds us that getting dressed is and should be fun.
This bag is both a minimalist staple and a statement piece.
