If you were to look through my closet, you'd be able to tell pretty quickly what my favorite color is this season. Once you pulled out the piles of cream, gray, and black that dominate my closet year round, you would find a whole lot of maroon. This gorgeous wine color is quite possibly everyone's favorite color right now, with olive coming in a close second. And although I have plenty of tops in this color, I've been on the hunt for the right pair of skinny jeans, leggings, or pants in a deep, jewel toned maroon.
Nordstrom has quite a few burgundy pant options, but as soon as I saw these cropped J. Crew pants at Nordstrom, I knew they were the pants I'd been looking for. I'm always drawn to a cropped cut, and the kicky flared leg is very modern and totally on trend. They are a fun deviation from my skinny jeans addiction and are a super cool, slightly dressy way to add color to a fall outfit. (And if the cropped, kick flare cut isn't for you, try these and these as alternative burgundy options.)
I love my basics, but I really love basics with some kind of edge or uniqueness. Funky basics make it easy to get dressed because basics always go with basics, and then my personal style shines in the unexpected details. Enter the perfect cranberry pants!
These pants will style well with a gray sweater and ankle boots, and this Nordstrom blouse will pair beautifully with distressed denim and cognac boots. I can't wait to wear this outfit and these pieces to upcoming holiday events and also mix them into my daily wardrobe.
Have you added this cranberry color to your closet this fall?
