  • If you must wear a different color top with your Gaucho, try not to mix more than two colors. For Example, with Black Gaucho pants wear a white blouse or any other color but do not add a brown color vest, as this will not look good.
  • Due to the fact that Gaucho pants are made to come down to mid-calf it is not flattering to wear them with shoes since this will make you look wider in the middle. Instead, for a more flattering look wear them with your boots, preferably with cowboy boots matching in color with the Gaucho pants.
