Reader’s Question: Red Denim

It has been a bit since I wrote a fashion post.  Please, please forgive me.  I am still vacationing so it is easy to get distracted…

But I am focused today and have an answer to a reader’s question from a couple weeks back.

The question: How To Style Red Jeans?

And while (admittedly) I tend toward a softer palette, I jumped at the chance to play with red denim.

It was important for me to show both a day and an evening look, because I really believe that red denim has the versatility to support it!

Do you/ would you wear red denim?


  1. adore red jeans, and you have picked out the perfect options :-) now I just want to see you rocking these 2 gorgeous looks!

  2. I’m loving colored denim.

  3. Thanks for the link to my site! I love my red denim jeans. They’re actually very versatile and easy to wear. They’ve been such a successful addition to my wardrobe that I’m thinking about adding more colors, maybe even some pastels! I would love a pair of jeans in a pretty blush color…

  4. Happymother says:

    Absolutely! It looks young and fresh!!!

  5. What!? Am I seeing color at NOH? Just kidding! I love how you put together these looks, I would never think of a heel with a red jean but then again I’m too tall for that. I have a super bright red Minnie J Crew pair that I wear toned down with a RL sweater and it’s one of my fav looks. Hope you are having a great vacation Alexis.

    p.s. I know that whole pop of color phrase is a bit tired, but since Brad G. seems to have resuscitated it, I went along with it.

  6. I’ve seen red demin but I have to say it only looks good in skinny jeans.

  7. I don’t know that I could do red. I have to be careful with reds because they clash with my hair. It would have to be a more warm, earthy red. However, I’d totally rock some red jeans if the shade was right. I love the options you’ve shared here. Perfect.

  8. I love that top in the first set you did. Would work perfectly with the red denim jeans.

  9. Do I? No. Would I? Only if they have a mid-rise cut in short-leg size!

  10. I have my cobalt skinnies…Now I need some red ones! LOVE those earrings!

  11. I ordered a pair from Ideeli over the summer that didn’t fit & haven’t gotten any sense. Hopefully I can find some maternity ones because I love the colored denim look!

  12. Thank you thank you! I really liked your selections, especially the night look. It’s so true you can dress them for either time of day. :) These all go with my style and now I have some places to look for expanding my wardrobe. Nice to get out of my own ideas.

  13. These are great looks. I love how fun the daytime look is.

  14. Yes I do! I bought one pair from zara last summer and I like to style them as in outfit n. 2!

  15. Love the red jeans! I really want a pair of red leather (fake) pants.

  16. I love your style of the red jeans, with either the top or accessories having the red in them as an accent color to connect with the jeans.
