How to Wear Red Pants to Work 2012

The Red Pants You Really Need This Season — and How to Wear Them 24/7

Gone are the days (and luxury), of being able to head home to change and primp before a holiday party. With not a minute to spare — and with the holiday invites starting to roll in — it's all about looking chic at the office and dazzling at the parties in one fell swoop. But don't fret, we have just the cure for your work to play holiday ensemble. You may think red pants are not the most versatile Winter must have but listen up: with just a few styling tricks these gorgeous J.Crew silk wool cafe capri trousers ($288) just might be your new go-to item. For work, make a high impact and pair these statement pants with a cozy cropped cream knit over a white button-down, and finish with a sparkly brooch and ladylike cap-toe pumps. Holiday cocktails straight after? Then simply swap out your top for a slinky black camisole and trade out your accessories for a stunning necklace, red-hot suede sandals, and a shimmery clutch. Yes, it's that easy. Shop our two chic outfits below and get ready for the compliments.
