black pants are so SO SO boring. My first season I rocked black pants and a brown jacket and I was just ZzzzZZzzz over it.


Of course you can always add some flair with funky face masks, scarves, gloves, beanies and goggles. Sometimes I wear all black but have bright purple boots. Then I'll add a really obnoxious facemask and goggle strap.


Outside of that are other neutral colors. Try gray or brown pants instead. Or try to pick a main color to build your snow wardrobe around. I have a very heavy jacket that is a blue, brown and orange plaid. So I buy things in solids I know will match that jacket. I also have a light weight shell that's a bright turquoise, again it matches the 'theme' of the wardrobe.


the other thing to consider about matching solids is keeping the intensity of the color the same. Any pastel will really go with any pastel. Same goes for jewel tones or neons.
You know, neon green goes with hunter orange or chromakey blue. But neon green looks flat out wrong with a pastel blue.

Black tends to suck the color out of other things it's around. It's really best to NOT use black in an all solid outfit. Brown, black or navy is less harsh. Also, don't mix black with a print unless the print has black. It looks wrong.

It just so happens that my pants were top of the line, my jacket is middlin.
I wear an AK 3L pants and and AK 3L jacket so it's not a quality difference, just that pants cost less than jackets. Maybe not quite half, but close

I dig darker pants. Like you said, they go well with everything. I've always bought a darker pair of pants and kept them around at least a year or two longer than when I switch out jackets.

Last year I went ninja. Dark, dark blue pants, black jacket, black helmet, black Smith I/Os with blue mirror lens. Straight samurai. Hhahaa

Yeah I'd say go with the black pants as pants get dirtier faster than a jacket. I have black pants with a nice solid electric blue jacket and I think it looks pretty clean and legit. It pairs well with a bright green beanie. I was never a huge fan of matching pants/jackets and pattern combos.
