There’s nothing that excites me much more than good denim. I mean, have you read my blog? I probably wear jeans 80% of my life, and feel that they are always a wise investment if you find a really great pair. So what could be MORE exciting to a denim fanatic than colored jeans? I have often become enamored of jeans in particular colors, and search until I find the perfect shade. I went through a grey jeans phase, and a very serious purple jeans phase as well. 2011 brings the red jeans phase, and this was probably only the second pair I tried on! The shade is perfect–bright tomato, not too orange or pink. If there’s such a thing as a neutral red, this is it. I also love the fit. I think the label called them “capri” length, but since I don’t have a 36″ inseam, they are just cropped at the ankle. I also have to talk about the rise for a second. They are low in the front, but high in the back! I have never had a pair of jeans like this before–you get the cuteness of a low-rise, without the butt crack! What could be better? The only thing that is something of an issue is the thinness of the denim–they are very stretchy and lightweight, so girls that like a sturdier jean should look elsewhere. My research has shown that while comfortable on a hot day (and without any sagginess in the butt), they can cling to some in an unflattering way.
If anyone is in the market for colored denim, these Rag&Bone jeans come in a variety of colors and are worth trying on. In Austin they live at Barney’s Co-Op. And if you are in search of your next favorite pair of jeans, call me! I love jeans shopping, and am not afraid to admit it.
