A lot of the women I know don’t want to wear light or bright coloured jeans because they feel it draws too much attention to their lower half or that they will look odd wearing such bright colours. Makes sense, given that the eye is naturally drawn to the brightest part of the outfit. But there are some tips and tricks to wearing bright pants that could solve these problems.
One simple trick to avoiding this problem – a bright/light coloured scarf or statement necklace. These will draw the viewers eye upwards towards your face and keep the focus away from your backside and hips. Simple, huh? Let’s see it in action!
In this outfit, I’m wearing a super bright pair of pants with a dark coloured top. But I’m also wearing this sparkly cream scarf that does distract the viewer from focussing on the pants alone. Thus, by putting a statement piece near my face, I can successfully get away with wearing these neon jeans and not feeling self conscious about my hips and backside! A chunky statement necklace would play the same role as this scarf and if it were summer, that’s what I would have worn instead.
Another trick that helps is pairing the bright pants with neutrals. If there is already one bright element in an outfit, you can balance it out by wearing complementary neutrals. By wearing navy and cream on top and nude shoes, I’m avoiding a colour overload and the yellow pants don’t look garish. Of course, if you are a colour addict like me, you can try colour blocking and pairing the coloured pants with other brights, but if you’re scared of bright pants, don’t try that!
My most important tip of all? Be confident! No matter what size or age you are, if you feel like a superstar in bright coloured pants, I’m sure you will carry them off! Trust me, there was a time when all I wore was one pair of dark wash jeans, but once I bought a pair of coloured jeans and realised how versatile and fun they are, I never looked back.
I hope you find these tips useful and that I’ve convinced some of you to go out of your comfort zone and buy a pair of coloured jeans!
