My winter wardrobe has become too neutral for my liking–lots of black, grey and ivory. I’ve been trying to add more color, but my efforts are slow-going. So when I spotted this bright, bold cobalt trousers, I had to try them.
I wasn’t expecting much. Banana hasn’t exactly been batting 1.000 lately. Not to mention that I’m not a big fan of pants. But these pants, these pants are something special.
Unlike so many trousers of the market, they’re fully lined. They drape beautifully (the picture doesn’t do them justice), and they’re surprisingly comfortable. My only complaint is that the pockets are very poorly placed for the pear-shaped. I had to have them removed and sewn shut. Problem solved.
Think colored trousers might be for you? I also found this tomato red pair from Jones New York. If you prefer muted colors to brights, I would look at these phenomenal burgundy tab-front pants from The Limited. I also found these emerald-green trousers with a bow detail.
