Women began wearing pants in the 19th century. At first, women began to wear pants merely for function, but later wore them as a fashion statement.
Brown pants can be worn with a white, pink, ecru, light blue or yellow top. White shirts can go with almost any color of pants.
Taking in pants can be done fairly easily with a seam ripper and a sewing machine. Measure the pants carefully before you begin altering them, since it's difficult to undo a mistake.
Brown pants can have some limitation with the colors. Despite this, there are many colors that can be worn with brown pants. The color palette depends on what the wearer's intention is.
Black pants match well with shirts that are brightly colored such as white, red or royal blue. Shirts with bold patterns also look good with black pants.
High-water pants are slacks with a length that sits above the ankle. They are also called "flood pants" or "flooders." The name comes from their being so high that the hem is protected from getting wet even in flood waters.
A number of colors pair well with green. The hue is ideal with neutral colors like tan or cream, or it can be paired with basic shades, such as black and white.
White, tan, beige, cream, mint green, sage, light blue, baby pink, pale yellow, light red and light purple colored shirts all work well with brown pants. Despite brown being less forgiving than other colors, stylists have plenty of ways to avoid a mismatch and not get bored.
Colors that make stylish accompaniments to brown pants include mint green, turquoise or teal, light blue, periwinkle and some shades of purple. Other colors that may be worn with brown include mustard yellow, golden yellow, pale yellow and cream or beige.
A simple method to convert men's pants sizes to women's sizes involves subtracting 21 inches from the men's pants waist measurement. This means a size 34-inch men's pants equals a women's size 13.
