British Red Skinny Jeans

“When in doubt wear red” – Bill Blass

Imagine my joy when my husband and I found these restored English telephone booths in a courtyard shopping mall the other weekend.  Real pay phones abide within the red doors. Once they were commonplace but now finding a phone that takes quarters is a rarity.

I promise I didn’t wear the jeans for the decor – it was just serendipity.

What do you think the red jean trend? Do you have a pair? If so, how do you wear them?

      I didn’t get into jeans during the Big Jeans Trend that happened a few years ago, so I guess I’m making up for lost time!

    I love this! I have J Brands & love how they fit for me. Love the phonebooth of course! xo 🙂

      I’m so happy to have discovered J Brand. For years I just wore jeans from the Gap, which were OK, but the fit on J Brand is so flattering yet comfortable, it’s like I’ve rediscovered the joy of wearing jeans.

    I like red jeans when they’re a darker shade such as yours, I’m currently on the look out!

    I haven’t experimented with color skinny jeans (red, white, green, and so on). How would you suggest wearing them?

      Colored denim is one of my favorite of the new trends. Because they’re such a statement I like wearing them with a simple black t-shirt. I recently purchased a pair in teal that I love. I think a crisp white blouse would look good too.
