One day, you might boot up a Wii U, see a bunch of Mii avatars gather in the system's main menu/plaza, and you will wonder: Why are these Miis wearing different-colored pants? What to the colors of these pants mean?

Good news. The Wii U's digital instruction manual explains the fashion rules for Mii pantwear. We're showing you that here. If you're short on time, jump 40 seconds in. If you want the context of how these Miis appear in the system, though, just watch from the start.
