The Riddle of the Red Jeans

The Riddle of Red Jeans

I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of red jeans for a while now, and the other night I came across the very pair at the sale rack in Forever 21. Needless to say, it was a moment worthy of a happy dance once I got them safely back home.

I think they might be a previous season’s style as I couldn’t find them anywhere online, but they are the perfect shade of deep, vibrant red and a skinny/flare fit that’s really flattering.

In my excitement I tried them on tonight with a sharp white t-shirt and a pair of great black ankle-length silver-buckle boots, and suddenly realised I looked like a young, female … Santa Claus trainee.

Any other combo of black, white and/or green seemed a little too Christmassy as well, so I realised this new find was worthy of some proper research.

As per the above collage, I love the idea of combining them with some brown leather and a feminine cream blouse, with a tartan scarf. Any other suggestions on how to wear red jeans in a creative way would be most welcome!
