Today's You Search, I Answer came in the form of an email from Missey. She states:
"I love all of the skinny colored jeans that are out right now...in fact, I own three pairs(cobalt blue, eggplant, fuschia/red)! My problem is in styling; I seem to only wear black, white, or grey tops with them for fear of looking too "busy". Do you have any suggestions?"
I sure do! Let me introduce you to my fail-proof equation:
colored jean + new neutral + touch of interest = bold, but not busy
The color of jean is up to you. Add one of my favorite neutrals: navy, camel, or chambray or one of the patterns I consider a new neutral: polka dots, stripes, the list goes on and on. For the final touch, a bit of interest. This can come in the form of color, pattern, texture, or shine (I'm pretty sure I just stole this from Clinton and Stacy). The key to balancing bold jeans is to keep the other pieces sleek and simple with a dash special.
