Pippa Middleton Goes Bold In Red Pants! (PHOTOS, POLL)

It's been awhile since we talked about PIppa Middleton -- though Pips has spied in a few different outfits lately, we weren't super wowed by any of her sartorial choices.

But today we're feeling a bit more apt to cover the famous royal sis, who reportedly planned Kate's recent karaoke-filled 30th birthday party, because, LOOK AT THOSE PANTS!

Pippa's pants have come under scrutiny before, most notably when she, well, wasn't wearing any.

But this time, the girl's gone in a different direction. Pippa was spotted, of course, walking to work in London wearing this borderline hipster outfit: a black plaid shirt, black boots, and black tuxedo jacket and red trousers with a hint of acid wash detail at the seams. The crowning touch? A pair of sleek shades.

If we didn't already think Pips was cooler than us, this outfit seals the deal for sure.
