15 Pairs of Colorful Pants

It used to be that the only pants a guy had in his closet were blue jeans, tan chinos, and proper trousers in navy and gray. Over the past few seasons, we've seen a push for color, first in jeans, and now in a man's everyday chinos. At first the colors were, well, bright. And that's fine for some, but certainly not everyone. Check out the 15 pairs of pants well-matched to the season.

Don't think of them as pink, think of them as "dusty rose."

A yellow that isn't too loud.

J. Crew 

Perfect for the office or the weekend.

Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen 

"Washed-out" is a very desirable attribute, in this case.

Gant by Michael Bastian

Green. It's not just for St. Paddy's day, after all.

And here's a more traditional olive option, rendered in a looser fit. Wear 'em at the beach.

Shipley & Halmos 

We're calling this one "salmon."

Band of Outsiders

This, right here, is why washing something innumerable times can actually be a good thing.

Patrik Ervell

A little more saturated than some of our other picks, but just as wearable. Try them with a white shirt and a heather gray cardigan.

Todd Snyder 

Burnt orange: It's a lot easier to work into your wardrobe than you might think. Trust us.

Paul Smith 

If you're gonna wear pastels, spring's the time to do it.

Marc Jacobs 

Red. Very red. But worn the right way - namely, with muted neutrals everywhere else - they're a solid bet.
