When I bought these red pants from Target the other weekend, I didn’t even realize Valentine’s Day was around the corner. Sure, red ankle pants aren’t the most romantic clothing item out there, but whatever floats your boat, right?

My boyfriend and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, so these are more of any-day pants than romance pants. That and because romance pants aren’t a thing. I recently scooped up this blue blouse from TJMaxx and I thought the navy paired nicely with the red. And that, my dears, is how we ended up with this here outfit post.

Outside of Valentine’s Day, I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of these red ankle pants. I’ll be able to pair them with a top and blazer, a sweater and so much more. I have these exact same pants in black AND grey and they’re the only pairs of dress pants I own.

Tell me: Do you have any red items you’ll be busting out for Valentine’s Day?

  • Cute look!

  • I like the look you put together.

    I want those red pants! I just saw some in either the Garnet Hill or Land’s End or Gap catalogue but good to know those are at Target! So cute

    • You must get them – I buy them in every new color when I can find them 🙂

  • I adore pants that are different colors. I have berry/burgundy colored ones and Christmas tree colored ones that I really enjoy wearing! <3

    • Oh – those sound fun too! I want a dark green pair if I can find one.

    I don’t have the confidence to wear red pants but they look adorable on you.

    • Thanks, Marcia. I’m sure you’d look fabulous in bright red pants 🙂

  • I love the red pants. I had a pair when I was around 21 that were my favorites!

    • I sense it’s time for red pants 2.0. 2016 is the year, I can feel it!

    What a great paring! The red looks perfect with the navy.

    • Thanks so much – I thought it was a softer pairing than red and black.

    Love the whole outfit! Casual but with a pop of color!
