One Item Three Ways: Burnt Red Corduroy Pants

I have been on the hunt for some awesome corduroy pants, specifically in a burnt red/brick/ brownish color and today I finally found some! But I got to thinking about the practicality of colored corduroy; can they really fit in my wardrobe already or will I have to buy new shirts just to go with them?  So like any young women as soon as I got home from the mall I started making outfits (I like to rationalize my purchases like I'm sure most of you do!). Much to my surprise I could make so many outfits with my new burnt red corduroys! Below are some examples of the outfits I made :

Shopping Day Corduroys!

Glam Corduroy

Pair colored (in my case burnt red) corduroys with a neutral color sweater  and sparkly necklace. I've been lusting over these boots for sometime (they are super fun!) and I think they would go fabulous with the corduroys. Top it off with a felt hat and a pink lipstick and you're ready to hit up the stores for all those holiday deals.

Rocker Corduroys!

If you're having a rocker type of day, corduroys can be the perfect alternative to leather leggings or jeans. Pair it with a denim button down with cool details and an armful of bangles. On your feet wear leather motorcycle boots. To finish off the look, wrap an infinity scarf around your neck and exchange your knitted beanie for a faux fur one.

Party Corduroys! 

Party Pants!

Corduroys may not be the typical party pants but I believe that with the right outfit they can totally be party pants! To dress up corduroys wear a sequined covered t-shirt and a patent leather nude pump. Wear some sparkly earrings and add a pop of color and fun with a bright colored clutch.

So I say colored corduroys are awesome and I cannot wait to rock some of these outfits this fall. They are not only a nice alternative to jeans they can be very practical, even in bright colors. What do you all think? Will you be sticking to jeans or opting for corduroys this winter?

These aren't my EXACT clothes but they are similar! ( I mean seriously I could NOT afford a sweater from the row but a girl can dream!)
