Feeling shaky about Gonzaga in the NCAA tournament? Remember, no program is more solid.

For as much as Mark Few’s program has done to establish itself as a perennial power, it is still judged too critically by a single loss in its mid-major conference.

Fed’s Powell sees solid but slower U.S. economic growth in 2019

The U.S. economy will grow at a solid though slower pace in 2019 and the Federal Reserve will remain “patient” in deciding whether to further raise interest rates, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said on Tuesday.

Outfit Formula: Simple Solid Bright Pants

Wearing bright pants is an acquired taste. Some find the look loud, juvenile, unprofessional and widening, and prefer neutral bottoms. Others simply prefer to wear their non-neutrals up top. Personally, I enjoy wearing bright pants because it’s an easy way to make an interesting and bold statement. Add a simple top and pair of shoes, and you’re there. The pants do all the talking. I miss my red, orange and citron pants, and desperately want to replace them this year.

I think these outfits are gorgeous, although I’d swap out some of the footwear choices and we need warmer weather before we can put them into action. Hopefully they’ll provide some inspiration.

1. Fuchsia Elegance

Combine a black lace or solid blouse with pair of dressy fuchsia pants like these crepe flares. Tucking the top makes the leg line look longer, as does wearing almost floor sweeping hems. The low-contrast silver pumps further lengthen the leg line and add some shine. Proportionately, the model looks short in the waist which is accentuated by the strong horizontal line created by the high-contrast top and bottom. The V-neckline of the shirt collar offsets that by drawing the eye back up and down. The model looks beautifully elegant.

2. Trendy Classic

Combine a pair of red pants with white boots and top, and Bob’s your uncle. Throw in just about any colour bag or topper because red & white are a classic and versatile combination. I’d add a turquoise bag and coat to this combination, and swap out the shirt for a white pullover. You could sub the white for black, toffee, tan or navy, if that’s more your thing.

3. Suited and Stilettoed

Combine green pants with a navy top, and finish off the look with nude-for-you, white, blush, metallic or navy footwear. Sub the navy with black if that’s more to your taste. And if suits are your thing, add the matching topper. Wearing stiletto heels with a suit is a classic pairing, although the heels needn’t be high.

4. Tonal Romance

Cobalt works well with teal and turquoise because it clashes in a deliciously tonal way. Here, both the pants and blouse are soft, creating a sensual vibe. The blouse is tucked for structure, but you could wear it untucked. Nude-for-you, white, metallic, or footwear that bookends your hair is a good way to go. I’d have styled the model with closed footwear like a tan mule, ballet flat or pump.
