hot pants

Denim is a wardrobe staple with many choices.  Skinny, bootcut, skinny bootcut, distressed, dark, trouser, jegging, and so on.  I am currently in love with all the jewel tone denim that has been so prominent, so add that to the choices as well, and I was happy to see that the trend is continuing into fall.
On an earlier expedition to find the perfect pair of red denim pants I found that the range in colors of "red" ran from a deep rose to a gorgeous pumpkin color.
Surprisingly, after searching for a fire engine red denim, I ended up with a lovely pair of Current/Elliott Skinny Stretch Jeans in Bright Rose Wash.  They are stretchy and comfy but fitted and flattering as well.  Its a deep enough hue that its fun with a summer white top right now but will be gorgeous this fall with a grey or black top, and lets just say I have a few of those. :)
Want a rich wine colored denim to tuck into boots?  Rich & Skinny's Legacy Zip Legging Jeans have a great fit and the perfect amount of stretch.
Flare jeans are very prominent this fall and J Brand's Mid Rise Flare Leg comes in Black Cherry & Bermuda Blue.  Be warned, the flare is big and the pants are loooooong, so you are going to need to have them hemmed for boots or rock some major heels, unless you are blessed with the legs of a giraffe.  J Brand also has a high rise version with their Ali jean, in a beautiful corduroy terracotta.
In addition to pinks, reds, & oranges, denim colors come in blue, green, yellow, purple, and prints, like leopard & snakeskin (see my blog "Snake in the Grass").  Colored denim is a great way to both update and transition your closet from summer to fall.  You'll be glad you added some color to the darker tones most of us have in our winter closets down the road, and for now, just enjoy being the bright and sassy girl you know you are.
