Citron, lime, whatever you want to call this color, it is having a fashion moment. Today I’m going to share tips and tricks for styling this unique color. Whether you prefer to keep it classic or go bold, I’ve got you covered. I promise it’s easier to style than you think!
From pairing with neutrals to adding pops of citron with accessories, you’ll be able to create stylish and versatile outfits that will take your style to the next level. So, let’s dive in and explore how to elevate your spring style with citron trousers.
How To Elevate Your Spring Style with Citron Trousers
Pair with Neutral Colors
When it comes to pairing citron trousers with other colors, neutrals are a safe bet. Not only do they complement the bold hue of the trousers, but they also create a chic and sophisticated look. For a simple trouser outfit idea, pair your citron trousers with a white tee or a black tank top. This classic combination will never go out of style.
If you want to add a bit more dimension to your outfit, try layering with a third piece. This is my go-to trick for completing a look. To do this try a denim jacket for a casual look or a beige blazer to wear to the office or out to dinner. The neutral tones of these pieces will balance out the brightness of the citron, creating a more polished look.
Lastly, nude heels or white sneakers will elongate your legs and keep the focus on the statement piece, the citron trouser! Neutrals are your safest bet if you’re not 100% sure about bold colors!
Add Natural Accessories
When it comes to bright colors, I always like to tone them down with natural accessories. Jute, woven materials, rattan, all the things. It adds texture and dimension to your outfit, without adding more color. It truly elevates any outfit. Leave the leather tote bag at home for this spring and summer look!
Go Bold with Prints And Color
To really make a statement with your citron trousers, consider going bold with prints or color. This may seem intimidating, but it’s all about finding the right balance. A printed blouse or top can add a fun pop of pattern to your outfit, while still allowing your trousers to remain the focal point. Stick to prints that complement the citron color, such as classic stripes in a contrasting color or a floral pattern with pops of yellow.
I also love styling a bold color with another bold color. A total color blocking moment. A few color options that go really well with citron are hot pink, cobalt blues and even purple. You can see how I went with hot pink here and neutral shoes to balance it all out.
Try Monochromatic Colors
You can also try a monochromatic look and add a yellow or green to your citron trousers. Choosing either a softer shade, or a darker more saturated shade, is a good way to add contrast. You can even do this with accessories as I did here by adding a darker green bag to complement the citron hue. Or try a darker green top to pair with these trousers for spring.
Dress It Up with Heels
When it comes to dressing up your citron trousers, a pair of heels can make all the difference. Not only do they add height and elongate your legs, but they also instantly make your outfit look more polished and put together. Choose a neutral sandal or heel so that the focus stays on your bright citron trousers.
With heels and citron trousers, you can easily take your spring style from daytime casual to evening chic. And the best part? You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style – just choose a heel height that you’re comfortable wearing for extended periods of time. I love a low-block heel sandal to do just that!
Add A Denim Jacket
A really easy trick is to just soften the whole look and make it more casual with a denim jacket. Since blue goes really well with the citron color, this is a no brainer!
Because these are high rise wide leg trousers, I chose to go with a cropped denim jacket instead. This helps to create more balance with the outfit. An oversized longer boyfriend style denim jacket would’ve overwhelmed this outfit.
You can try a lightwash denim jacket, or classic dark blue, and even white. And if you want to have fun with color, use the rules above and add a pop of color with a pink denim jacket!
Add a Pop of Citron with Accessories
Accessories can take your outfit to the next level and incorporating pops of citron can pull it all together. Think an earring or necklace that may have some citron on it, or a printed bag that has this color throughout. This will help draw attention to your citron trousers and tie your outfit together.
Dress It Down With Sneakers
If you thought citron trousers were only meant for dressy occasions or to wear to the office, think again. You can easily achieve a more relaxed look with these vibrant pants by pairing them with sneakers. We all know trousers are the new jeans so you can definitely find ways to incorporate this into your everyday casual looks by adding a sneaker.
First, choose the right pair of sneakers. Opt for minimalist styles in neutral colors to keep the focus on your trousers. White leather sneakers or canvas ones are a safe bet. I love a classic platform Converse to style with these. You can also try a pastel Converse and make this a more colorful outfit!
Dressing down your citron trousers is really easy to do and such a cool Gen Z approved way to wear trousers.
