I am so appreciative of the many readers who shop this way!


  1. I would style the blue pants with a comfy cashmere sweater in the same color – crew or v neck. Add black booties and off you go! Happy Saturday!

  2. Thanks for starting us off today! A column of color is a great place to start! Happy Saturday!

  3. Good morning Pam! And Yes that particular blue could be a challenge especially with my wardrobe! Ha!
    I’m thinking I’d wear these pants with a white or off white wrapped nubby sweater with a belt. Naturally I’d wear the sweater over a tee, tank or cami of the same white tone.
    If I could find a striped sweater (crew or turtleneck )with that exact blue/white if wear that. It might also be pretty too, with yellow!
    I can’t decide on shoe/handbag color but I’m leaning toward tan. I need help here!
    Happy Saturday!

  4. Blues and greens play a big role in my wardrobe, and I used to have a very similar pair of casual pants this color. For winter, add a cream-colored cabled sweater, shortie boots, cream puffy vest and a pretty scarf that picks up the blue. I was one of the ladies who liked and ordered the JCP sweater last weekend. It’s not here yet, but yes, it’s for me. 🙂 The Talbot’s I ordered from your links arrived this week, and I couldn’t be happier: bright green sweater with colorful flecks in it, and the fair isle cream/blue/green scarf – SO PRETTY!!!

  5. Since the blue is so brilliant, I would look for ways to tone it down. This would be a tough task for those who don’t wear black, but I’d pair those pants with a simple black sweater and some understated jewelry, maybe just some statement earrings. If there was a scarf available that had a touch of that blue, I’d see how that would work. I think using navy, while easier for some to wear, might actually be a clash. But worth a try. My goal in helping someone with these pants would be to lower the contrast. The sweater they used in the display, to me, makes this look a little busy and overwhelming. Shoes would be a challenge, and I’d try bookending with black, low-heeled pumps, or go with the same type of shoe in a nude tone. This is definitely a styling challenge! Happy Saturday Pam!

  6. I love the sweater, but find cobalt as a solid is difficult for me to wear with my warm coloring. So, I would style this sweater with very dark jeans and black accessories, or navy to tone down the “true blue” quality. I might wear big snow boots to get an apres ski vibe going. Sometimes I like this color with forest green, but it depends on the exact shade. I have a cool-toned, dark blue-eyed friend, and this is her best color. For her, I’d style the pants with a crisp white shirt and a scarf with some cobalt in it and silver hoops and bangles.

  7. I thought it was a challenge, Karen and love ideas the readers are bringing forward. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  8. My first thought when I saw these pants was that my mother would love the blue pants. It was her signature colour. She would have styled it with a button blouse – plain white or with a small contrasting pattern – under a coordinating jacket. She might have also worn the pants with a floral or geometric patterned sweater that included the blue. She would have added earrings and a necklace and loafers. I can clearly see her in such an outfit with her ever present smile. Thank you for giving me such a lovely memory this morning.

  9. Bright blue is a difficult color for me to style even on someone else since its very close to the color of my high school uniform which I did not love. This color suits a “winter” and they often like to wear high contrast which looks good on them. But I’m going to try to tone it down a bit but pairing it with a navy crew neck sweater with thin stripes the same blue as the pants. Shoes are challenging with bright colored pants so I’d opt for taupe or navy loafers. With a striped sweater I’d keep jewelry to a minimum but of course that’s the minimalist in me. Remembering this is for a winter I’d add in red. Talbots has a pretty poinsettia necklace would be fun this time of year. Then simple gold earrings and a red watch plus a quilted red cross body bag. And I’m eyeing that necklace for myself. It looks gorgeous. This was a tough one but fun, Pam. Thanks!

  10. Late to the party but a couple of ideas for this gorgeous blue – A Breton top or sweater in white/ivory with black stripes, gold jewelry, gold metallic sneaker or loafer. A turtle or mock neck, or crew neck shirt or sweater, and a poncho or shacket in a plaid with muted orange colors, gold jewelry, tan shoes/booties. Blue and orange are opposite on the colorwheel and pop against each other.

  11. Love the colors, but too much all at once. The sweater is busy and bright, so I think black pants , maybe a white or the denim shirt under looks good. I admire the other items on the table too- the denim shirt with ruffle collar and the colorful scarf.

  12. The pant being a velveteen I would opt to dress them up for a more polished but casual look by: eliminating the current sweater and shirt replacing them with a plain woven sweater in either ivory or black whose neckline would accommodate creative tying of the ‘houndstooth/ivory multi/oblong scarf’ that is on their website, which appears to have the same shade of blue in it. To book-end; footwear could be in either color of the sweater and be a bootie or slip-on style with choice of heel height. Handbag could be matching and choice in jewelry be to your preference. As to the sequined jacket; IMHO no need for a necklace as the pearl buttons are sufficient. i.e.: Less is more. Last but not least re the Santa leggings; as fun wouldn’t hesitate to model them if we still had little ones in the family and would choose a cozy chenille sweater and cuffed slipper socks to wear with them. -Brenda-
    Footnote: I wore bright orange fleece, embroidered pumpkin faced slippers this Halloween when answering the door and it was amazing how many little girls noticed and commented on them.

  13. I like the blue pants and would style with a plain white or creamy white cable sweater. I think gold hoop earrings and black booties would give a casual warm comfortable outfit. I like the sweater but would tone down with black jeans or jeggings.
