The fashion world has been turned upside down with bright denim―now your jeans are the focal point of your outfit!

When the kaleidoscopic trend of catchy colors made its appearance on fashion ramps a couple of years ago, many were tempted to dismiss it. After all, who would wear these outrageously-colored bottoms, they thought. But, they were wrong! These pants are here to stay, and they are all over the place.
For today's fashion-conscious woman (and man), bright-colored pants are the red lipstick equivalent of the clothes world. And if you are a true clotheshorse who has been unsure of how to wear these trousers and what you could wear with it, then here is everything that you would want to know.

Wear it with Black

When wearing colored pants, teaming it with a black blouse is your best bet. Try different cuts and fabrics so that your blouse does not look dowdy.

Wear it with White

White is the perfect neutral color to team bright bottoms with on a beautiful summer day. Opt for pretty and feminine blouses to team with colorful pants.

Wear it with other Colors

Love mixing colors? Opt for a color-blocked ensemble.
Blue with red, red with green, yellow with orange, orchid pink with salmon, the variations are endless and for a true color fanatic, this is a dream come true. Just remember, this is a look that needs major cojones.

Wear it with Prints

Donning prints is another area that many people tend to shy away from, but if you are comfortable with the idea, then wear bright pants with a printed blouse that has pops of the same color in it. This makes for an interesting and refreshing combination that will definitely have people stop in their tracks.
If you are still not sure of making a complete foray into the world of colorful trousers, start with their pastel cousins. Equally trendy, they are the perfect starting point for someone who wants to experiment with color but is still a little wary.
Let us warn you though, once you truly embrace brightly colored pants, nothing else will be good enough. Your once favorite denims will always seem dowdy, your go-to pair of khakis will seem too dull, and your wardrobe essential black trouser will be too basic. It is a wonderfully tempting rabbit hole from which there is absolutely no coming back.
