Wine Colored Pants 2 Ways for Fall

While I own plenty of neutrals, wearing color makes me happy in a way that no amount of navy blue, gray, or black can. Most of my color comes in the form of tops and accessories, but I also love the statement that a boldly-colored pair of pants or skirt can make. When I found this wine-colored (berry? plum? hooray for hard-to-describe colors!) pair of pants from Gap on ThredUp last month I quickly added them to my cart.

I think sometimes people are intimidated by wearing color on bottom, but I think it can be just as easy as on the top half--similarly, it's just all about balance. Here are two ways to wear this surprisingly versatile closet staple. One for the still-mostly-warm days we've had lately, and one for the cooler weather to come.

By afternoon it was too warm for the scarf, but since this top is so lightweight I needed a little something for the chilly morning. I thought the prints were a fun mix.

For a colder fall day, I swapped the lightweight blouse for a gingham flannel button-up. For extra warmth I added this faux suede moto jacket.

I had to share this shot of my sidekick in plaid. (His leopard-clad sister was napping and missed the photo-op.) 

How do you incorporate color into your closet?
