Choose two complementing colours to go with the red trousers. Red is a bright and bold colour, so wearing more than two complementing colours will make your outfit feel cluttered. Good colours to complement red trousers include white, black, beige, brown and grey. Neutral colours complement the red without making the outfit seem too bright.
Designate one of your two complementing colours as the primary and one as the secondary. For example, if you've chosen beige and black as your colours, pick beige to be your primary colour then black as your secondary. With beige as your primary colour, you might wear a beige blouse with black shoes and a black belt. This makes your outfit appear well planned.
Wear red accented jewellery to complement your red trousers. Red jewellery will bring a subtle red overtone across your entire outfit, pulling it all together. If you are a woman wear a necklace with a red pendant coupled with a red toned bracelet. As a man, wear a red tie or red toned ring will to help tie your outfit together.
Complete your look by styling your hair and make-up before going out. Wear make-up that is based around your colour scheme. For example, with a red and black outfit, smoky eye shadow and bright red lipstick will truly complete the look. Also, a red accent in the hair will add a stylised appeal to your overall look. For example, long hair can be tied up with a red ribbon as an accent to the red trousers.
