From Prabal Gurung's hot-pink flared pants to Yigal Azrouël's cobalt ankle-crop trousers, brights were seen everywhere on the Fall runways. However, we all know models make wearing the trend look a lot easier than it really is, so we asked Fab reader Stefanie to show us how she works her brights for Fall. Needless to say, the cutie, who also has her own cool fashion-meets-DIY blog dubbed The Style Safari, took the challenge with fashion fervor, creating five enviable outfits based on a pair of Zara Yellow Seamed Trousers ($60). After seeing this, we plan on heading to the nearest Zara to grab a pair of bright pants for ourselves. Ready to get inspired? Check out the slideshow to see all of her looks, and why she loves each outfit.
I caused a ruckus the other day when I asked what color workout pants you wear. Almost all of you said you stick to dark colors like black, mainly because you don't like to draw attention to your sweat zones — understandably so! And with further research, I realized that major retailers are catching on to your preferred hue as well: lululemon has an entire section of its online store devoted to black workout gear. Where has all the color gone? Let's get shopping!

Today I woke up, went online, and suddenly became fixated on a photo of Ellen Pompeo. She was sporting a pair of bright fluorescent red workout pants — talk about not needing my morning tea! I couldn't help but think about all of the pairs of black workout pants I have and how I've never had the courage to try a different color.
Flashy footwear for Spring? I've got it covered. Colorful sports bras, shorts, and gym bag? They are all bright tropical hues as well. But what is it with my workout pants? Why can't I just step away from black for a moment and explore other color families — like blues, or perhaps the wonderful world of greens? I'm not the only one who sticks to black — all of team Fit prefers darker workout pants, as does most of the people I see when I work out. Is it because we think the bright hues will draw attention to our butt, hips, and thighs? But nowadays workout gear fits so perfectly, I'm at a loss for excuses? What are your thoughts?
