Trend of the Day: Colored Skinny Jeans
Vibrant colored skinny jeans are a must for your summer closet! Pairing them with different types of fabrics, colors, patterns and the right accessories will allow you to create the outfit of your dreams. The best part about colored skinny jeans is you can pretty much wear them in any and every setting. If you’re going to the beach, roll them up and pair them with your favorite bikini top and flip flops. If you’re going to the mall to stock up your closet, pair them with a plaid boyfriend button down and some cute Vans. And thankfully, they can also be used in a business casual setting when paired with the right contrasting pieces.
At my job, our boss allows us to have Casual Friday each week to get everyone excited for the weekend. For today’s Casual Friday outfit, I pulled out my red skinny jeans from Rue 21 and paired them with a black satin winged razerback I bought from Goodwill for $4.99.
To complete any outfit, you have to have the right amount of accessories. The red skinny jeans with the black razerback is cute, sure, but watch as it transforms itself with the added accessories.
I chose a pair of Colin Stuart leopard print booties because they had red bottoms (sadly, not Louboutins) to match the red skinny jeans. For jewelry, I decided to wear a long black beaded necklace and stackable gold and black bracelets and a pair of oversized brown sunglasses to match the ribbons on the shoes. To complete the outfit, I used one of my red purses to hold my wallet, keys and cell phone.
This entire outfit cost less than $30 and looked like it could have been over $100. Remember to always shop smarter, not harder.
