Psst- I’m cleaning out my closet and selling a bunch o’ stuff on Instagram. Check it out!
I feel like colored denim/pants have become quite the trend with literally every color under the sun is an option these days. But if you are looking to build a capsule wardrobe and stick to remixable pieces, you can’t go wrong with four basics: black pants, classic dark wash jeans (duh), and color-wise: olive and burgundy. Olive and burgundy pants are pseudo-neutral and can go with so much!
I styled my burgundy pants in a relaxed outfit to grab a martini (or two) with some girlfriends. I purchased the Old Navy Mid-Rise Rockstar Sateen Pants in both olive & burgundy my budget post last month, and I’m glad I did! They are midrise, falling just below my belly button (I’m 5’5”). They are definitely fitted, especially in the thigh and calves (at least on me- I have what you’d call “athletic” thighs), but otherwise they do run true to size. What’s better is that they are super soft and made with a cotton sateen with just a hint of stretch that helps relax them out a bit, but not so much that they sag by the end of the day. Hate when that happens! Best yet- they are under $35 each (and you can probably do better than that- Old Navy always has promo codes online, and don’t forget to go through Ebates for even more cash back!)
So what can you wear with burgundy pants? Neutrals work well. Think black, grey, cream/ivory, cognac and navy. You could also try coral or a blush pink too!
What else would you pair with burgundy pants?
