We are one day away from September, and I’m just praying I wake up one day and the air is cool and crisp. But in Mississippi? Fat chance. But I’m embracing my fall favorites no matter the temperature, just like these bold-colored trousers from Cabi’s new fall collection.
Dubbed the Ava Trouser, these trousers nod to the 60s cigarette pant, but in a startling hue—rhubarb. Like rhubarb pie? Why, yes. Except, when I first tried them on, they felt like butter against my skin. Comfortable and chic!
As a curvy woman, the fashion industry has told me to stay away from bold bottoms and just stick to black and gray. While it may be flattering and these pants do come in a classic black, what’s the fun in that? I’m proud of the body God gave me. And I feel beautiful wearing these pants because they are striking at first glance. And they pair well with so many different colors! What’s not to love about fall’s new color?
I’ve put three different looks together to show you that these trousers are not only a gorgeous hue, but they can be worn on almost any occasion.
LOOK NO. 1 – Date night
I love when I get to break free from the structure and routine of the workweek and go on fun dates with my boyfriend. I love the contrast of this printed top against the rhubarb trousers and it makes for a playful Friday evening look. It’s paired with this lightweight moto jacket in a gorgeous gray/blue color.

LOOK No. 2 – At the office
Color blocking is a style technique that is timeless. For work, I kept it simple yet bold with a baby pink button-down and studded mauve pumps. It’s a striking contrast against the trousers and so unexpcted! To finish the look, I added a slate gray blazer.
Style tip: I love buttoning my shirt all the way, creating a menswear-inspired look and then adding a statement necklace. It looks so polished and chic!

Look No. 3 – Casual Saturday
Denim shirts are probably my go-to piece for casual weekends. I have about five of them in different shades. They pair with just about anything. And they go great with these trousers for a dressed-down outfit. It just shows that you can wear office trousers on a coffee date or even to the farmer’s market!

Can you tell I’m excited for colder weather? I can’t wait to wear these with a chunky sweater and boots. I hope this gave you some style ideas and inspiration for your fall wardrobe. Let me know what your favorite look is!
