Red Pants are the Rage

Red pants are all the rage for Summer. And I'm smitten.  Even though I don't like wearing pants generally, I'm looking around for a cropped pair for me. 

I saw this pair of peg-leg pants from TopShop for $75.  Good color but I'm not sure of the peg-leg style.

I like this cropped pair from Zara ($60) but they don't have a store in NC and they don't ship.  Booo to them!

These Moshinos are my back-up pair.  If the ones I'm getting fall through, I'm coming back to these. They look like they would be the perfect style for me but are pricey so they don't get to be option 1. $128 at YOOX.

The watermelon slim leg cropped chinos from Lands' End Canvas are the ones I'm getting.  They're only $39 so I'm going to try them in 3 colors - khaki and white plus the watermelon sorbet.  The first order I placed got screwed up somehow and shipped back so I'm trying again.  They better not mess this up twice!

I hope they fit because I can't wait to wear bright pants with my stripe-y tops!

Please let us know how they turn out because I totally want a pair of red pants! Love the ones from YOOX but don't love YOOX, I had a bad experience ordering from there once.

I like the looser cuts on the cropped pants these days... not wide but not skinny. Yes, please tell us how they work out! That's a great deal!

Hi Poochie,
I've been reading your blog for a couple of years now. Guess I'm not much of a commenter. But I just had to delurk because I've spent the last 2 weeks searching for a pair of red pants (after seeing them in last month InStyle and in some blogs). I bought a nice-fitting pair on Tuesday. Bright red, perfect length for ballet flats but can be cuffed for the cropped style. Haven't worn them yet as it's been cold and raining.
Love the idea of wearing them with stripes or with something leopard! Can't wait!
