Almost daily, someone from FLARE shows up in a pair of bright red pants. Exhibit A: the fashion team’s Dane Tredway and Mosha Lundström Halbert in crisp blue oxfords and slim-cut reds. Hardly an exercise in ‘who wore it best’, the ruby trouser is a gender bender – sizzling on both sexes and a easy style step-up from the blues.

“I love the idea of coloured pants, especially for summer. But for somebody who usually sticks to neutrals, red pants are a bit of a departure for me. To put my own spin on it, I keep the styling simple with classic layering pieces like a chambray button-up, striped tee and chunky wingtip Docs. The punch of colour adds an instant update to a favourite nautical look.”
On him: Jeans, Effekt. Top, Gap. T-shirt, American Apparel. Shoes, Dr. Martens.

“These cotton ankle skimmers give me a fashion flashback to my first pair of designer jeans, engine red Parasuco’s circa 1999. I took the look in a more office-appropriate direction by pairing this new version with a blue-blood oxford, a stalwart staple that smartly tones-down flashier pieces. But before it got too boring, I threw off the look with leopard mules.”
On her: Pants, Zara. Shirt, Brooks Brothers. Shoes, Alexander Wang. Bag, Mulberry.
