No doubt red is the my colour for this year! It is also an appropriate colour during Christmas and Valentine period. A colour that matches a versatile and wardrobe staple like my diy athleisure pants. It is obvious that the red trend thrived from the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan, with designers featuring the red hue last year. Max Mara embodies this trend giving us some power looks in fabrics like cashmere, sheepskin, velvets etc. Fendi flirting red with sheer in flowy fabric to Victoria Bechkam in a more subte simple styles to Balenciga knitted wears to Jill Sanders, Valentino, Prabal Gurung , Roksanda – the list goes on. You can agree with me that these designers had got together to remind us that the red is the colour for the season, ladylike and daring and powerful look – making a strong impact in power red.

As a fan of the red trend, I embraced the cherry red taking cue from the runway shows by making my own diy athleisure red pants. I downloaded a template for pants, taking my measurements and making this pants from start to finish with needle and thread. The process/steps of making this pants turned out to be very long and might get confusing if you don’t have the knowledge of cutting and sewing fabrics.

Today’s post I saved you the stress of making a pants from start to finish. I added black ribbon to the sides of the pants to make a diy athleisure pants. Let me know in the comment box, would like to see a detailed post on making your own pants?

What you’ll need:

  • a pair of red trousers
  • black ribbon
  • scissors
  • thread
  • needle
  • pins

Here’s a video on how to make your own athleisure pant.


  1. Matchy red: Go all out by picking your preferable red. Now is the time for daring and bold fashionistas to go all-in wearing red-to-toe.
  2. Wear red top: Red top has always been a wardrobe staple and anyone can style a red top
  3. Wear red bottom: Opt for a pair of athletic red pants or red patent skirt to create a statement style. As simple as a red skirt, black band t-shirt and white sneakers can look very chic or red pant paired with white buttoned down shirt and black stilettos heels for a boss lady look
  4. Make a statement with your red accessories: Not leaving the minimalist out of the trend, bold hue accessories like the berets, fanny pack, boots can make a statement without appearing too intense.
