terra cotta




Jacket: Topshop (similar style here); Shirt: J. Crew (similar style here); Pants: c/o J. Brand via the Lucky FABB conference; Shoes: Charlotte Ronson; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Lodis; Jewelry: J. Crew necklace, Michael Kors watch, H&M cuff

You all know I have a penchant for colored (and patterened) trousers (ok, borderline obsession) but surprisingly enough, until recently, I didn't own a single pair of colored denim. That's why I was exited to try out this J. Brand pair (via the Lucky Fabb conference back in September) and fell in love for two main reasons: 1.) the terra cotta color is reminiscent of pumpkin spice (always a win in my book and perfect for fall color pairings) and 2.) transitions nicely for more of a weekend vibe, more so than their trouser counterparts. 

This got me thinking: I've been missing out this whole time! Excuse me while I go kick myself and desperately rectify this situation by shopping around for more pairs of colored denim. Do any of you have some favorite hues or brands I should check out?

  3. J Brand is my favorite denim brand (10 pairs in my closet, actually), so I couldn't recommend a better pick. If you really are looking for something different, I've also heard that Current/Elliott make great colored denim.

    I love this whole look- very theft-worthy :D

  5. Loooove the color of these jeans! So perfect for fall! I have yet to try the colored denim trend, I have a hard enough time finding regular denim I feel good in, let alone emphasizing it with a bold color! HOWEVER, I have been quietly on the hunt for a pair in a pretty bordeaux/burgundy shade! Subtle, but still something different! You look gorgeous here, this whole outfit is awesome!

  6. Love the new jeans! They are a perfect fall color. I have two pairs of colored jeans and they are from F21, but I have to say give AG jeans a try because they are so soft and come in great colors.

  14. I've been coveting the deep red jeans from j.brand. But after hunting samples in some bins at Levi's (where I work), I found these coral hued ones. They're super comfortable! See them here: http://thestylistadiaries.blogspot.com/2011/10/red-bricks.html

  16. I recently got these Joes and love the unique color "sassafras" http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/joes-chelsea-skinny-stretch-denim-jeans-sassafras-wash/3216632?origin=PredictiveSearch&resultback=830. But I agree with Anna above, Current Elliot also has really great options and are super comfortable! Love the color of yours :)

  22. I'm sure it's been said, but blue! You need some blue jeans. Uh...you know what I mean haha I've also seen some mustard colored pairs that I've been lusting over. I myself have a bright pink pair and a nice deep red pair. Colored jeans are quickly becoming my favorite thing. Funny the way fall can bring new obsessions into your life.

  36. The first thing that I want to say is that I love the blog. I look at it often. The second thing that I want to say is that I am so jealous of your beautiful hair. I have been trying to grow my hair out for so long.

    Well, Keep Up The Good Work!
