The Perfect Outfit: Choose Orange To Liven Up Your Vintage

perfect-outfit-red-pants-carpet-bag-1
We all have a piece in our closet that verges on granny status, and whether that be a carpetbag or a crocheted shrug, it needs to be paired with a bit of modern flair to keep things fresh. In the case, a pair of persimmon-orange pants does the trick, providing an eye-grabbing compliment to the vintage-inspired pieces. We're going to be scouring the shops until we find Shan's high-waisted, silky trousers (though we swear we saw a similar version at H&M last weekend), but until then, a lightweight silk pant, like this Michael Kors version, will fit the bill nicely. Check below to shop this look, including a lace moto jacket that we're dying to try on.
