Jessica Alba is obviously madly in love with colored denim – she’s been spotted in multiple hues lately from yellow to gorgeous red! And I have to say, I’m pretty obsessed myself. Bring ON the colored denim (just not in yellow for me, please). Jessica has been wearing the Sanctuary Charmer skinny jeans ($139) in the color Rhubarb.
I actually just received a pair of these for myself over the weekend and have been wearing them nonstop (psst…I’m working on a colored denim story, so full deets are coming very soon!!). While mine are a deep purple (aka eggplant), I can’t get enough of how you can wear them with any type of shoe: riding boot (check); high heel/wedge (check); ballet flat (check).
The fit is pretty second skin (on me, anyway), but it’s a very comfy one. And I think in this case a darker hue (including this red) is more flattering for this fit. A longer, flowy top is best suited for the tighter-fitting-bottom. And it’s always fun to use contrast: black with red here, but I love both black and white (!) with my purple pair. You can even add a striking necklace to the mix! This spring it’s all about stepping a little out of your muted-palette comfort zone. We’re all guilty, right? 😉
