Now, I will be the first to tell you that purple pants sound like a hideous idea. The thought itself conjures images of a Barney-Jane Fonda leggings-grape-Care Bears-Lisa Frank cocktail.
To be honest, I'm not even sure how I ended up with these pants. However, I decided to give the color of the year a chance. After searching google for "Outfits with Purple Pants" (then immediately clearing my history in shame), I actually found some great inspiration. When paired with a graphic top and a statement necklace, purple pants don't suck. In fact, they become -- dare I say it?-- chic.
