Red Skinny Jean Fail

January 12, 2012

I've been wanting some red skinny jeans for a while now. I found a pair on sale right before Christmas and snagged them up! After all, these ladies make them look so cute!






But on me?  Not so much.
Red Jeans + Red Hair = Bad Idea
I really wanted to love these because I got a great deal on them...but I just don't. Plus I don't have a cute top to wear with them. Sigh.

In a moment of genius I tried them with my black flats and actually like them a lot more....but still they are going back to the store. I'm so glad I kept the tags on! If you don't have red hair and can pull these off, they can be found HERE. Plus they are super comfy.

So tell me...are you a fan of the red skinny jean? Maybe I need to try another color? Suggestions?

  5. I only have one pair of skinny jeans so I'm not a big fan but I think you're totally brave for trying them in red. Honestly I think they look great on you, especially with the flats. I'm loving your cardigan too.

  8. I really like them on you. With the flats & the boots!

    I agree with the others, though, a jeweled green would look really good as well!

  13. i think they are super cute..there's so many colors you could pair up with it. you should keep the faith in the red pants. :)

  14. I had the same problem with tall boots. I know they are super trendy right now, but when you're "short and stout" like me - it just doesn't work. I found a great deal on a pair too, but they didn't look right on me, and I would have practically had to buy a new wardrobe to have cute outfits to wear with them, so back to the store they went!

  19. i kinda LOVE the red!!!! especially with flats :) i LOVE colored jeans, i so so desperately want some (maybe when i can actually FIT into things?).

  20. No don't take them back!!! They are fabulous! Try pairing them with a neutral top, like a camel or cream color and gold accessories. There are these fabulous green toned Tory Burch flats (that I pinned on pinterest if you want to check them out!) that are in her spring line and they have them paired with red jeans! If you do take them back and get another color - please post! I am wanting to buy colored denim for spring! Oh J.Crew has some great jeans right now too!

  28. What?! You are totally rocking those, Julie!

  29. Team "Black Flats"!! You're brave for even getting red jeans...and then posting pics of said red jeans. I'd give them another chance.

    And they look even better since you have red hair. It totally goes.

    So I'm going to say: Keep the jeans.

  39. I am with the others and think you look great, but if you don't like them, that's what matters. SO! I was standing in line at the grocery store the other day perusing a magazine (and of course, I can't remember which one!) but they said one of the "must haves" in a classic closet was blue skinny jeans. They were royal blue and looked *adorable*! You would look great in them with your read hair! Good luck!

  42. I love those red skinnies! They don't look bad with your hair, in my opinion. But I understand. My hubby is a redhead and particular about the colors of his clothing. I will take a red skinnies donation ;) I want a pair so bad, but haven't found any that fit the way I want. Need to try these on at The Limited!

  43. Just found your blog and I think those red pants look great! I've been wanting red pants for awhile but haven't found a pair I like! Your outfit and blog are great!

  44. Ok, first of all they look so good on you. Soo you are pretty much crazy :) And second! There are a huge array of colored jeans at American Eagle!!! I just bought a hot pink pair and a red pair! They have gray, muted yellow, hot pink, white, red, and I think muted pink too. They are skinny jeans, so perfect for boots!!! :)

  45. If you don't love the red maybe try a royal blue crop skinny with a creme top and a black blazer. Then you can dress it up with black heels or dress down with cheetah flats. It would look amazing with your hair!!! Kudos for trying I have red skinnies and feel brave some days and wear them and other's not so much!!!
