Morning guys. Let's have a lesson in styling a pair of colored trousers for spring. I like to go with a slightly darker hue like eggplant purple,  navy blue, burgundy etc (it's up to you). Then proceed to style the outfit around the pair as the focal point. Here, I went with a simple white dress shirt and off-green coat to allow the purple to really stand out. When it comes to the bottom of the trouser you also have the decision to roll them up (if they're not already hemmed perfectly) or leave them down. Considering it's warming up a bit, I went for the roll.  Now, for shoes you might be a little turned off by my risky decision but keep an open mind! I like to pair maybe some vans or skate shoe for masculinity where as you might enjoy an oxford instead. Again, it's all up to you! Added some simple accessories and bam, a comfortable, color popping ensemble appropriate for the season to come.


how would you style colored trousers for spring?

  16. The first picture is my favorite! :)

    Green and purple is a good color combination, but what might have worked out as well was a short orange jacket, if you like it more colorful.

  17. Hi, I've discovered your blog yesterday and I really like your outfits. I guess I'd FRIENDLY advice my boyfriend to have a look (being an engineer he can easily turn into a Sheldon Cooper lookalike if I don't keep an eye on him) and take inspiration.
    Keep posting!

  20. Great look on you! I'm sure many will use this idea for their own style with color trousers. Not sure about the hair, looks like the Adam I saw grow up, I liked the other cut. You look so handsome either way, of course I am just slightly prejudiced! Keep up the fine work. Love you, Grandma

  25. I think those shoes are adorable. I love how they are trying to peek a little funk in there. They make ankles look suggestively good, lol. That hummus also looks delicious! As always, a beautiful work of art! :-)
