Colored Denim: Now and Later
Wear ’em now. Wear ’em later. Colored denim is as hot for winter as it is for spring and summer. Pair your colorful skinnies with a studious gray blazer and black booties for a streetwise and ladylike look, just like Bar Rafaeli. And when the temperatures rise, take a cue from Minka Kelly and pair the same pair, or a playful pastel pair, with a fresh white tee and nude flats. Another look we love? Colorblocking your denim with bold stripes of similar or contrasting colors and a colorful pair of pumps.
