How to Wear Red Skinny Jeans from Current/Elliott in 5 Steps
The pop color pant (or in this case, corduroy jean) is not going to be a thing of the past for at least another season, so hold on to what you've got or get in on a more Fall-centric version, i.e. the bold red corduroy jean from Current/Elliot. Never one to encourage shopping for the sake of accumulation, I highly recommend shopping your closet for alternatives first, but if you're coming up short or black or beige even, it's time to buckle down and bring a new shade from the color spectrum into your closet by shopping Our Closet.
The foundation and inspiration behind it all is a pair of skinny corduroy jeans. The natural next step is figuring out how to wear them. Sounds simple, contrary to the daunting scenario of standing in-front of your closet at 8am with the phrase, 'I have nothing to wear,' rolling around in your head. No worries. That's why The StyleShaker is here. The work is done for you. Here's one transitional take on how to pull the look off below:
Shop the Look:
1. Equipment Brett Clean Blouse (www.shoplesnouvelles.com) 2. Current/Elliott The Skinny low-rise stretch-corduroy jeans (www.net-a-porter.com) 3. Zara Basic Heel Court Shoe (www.zara.com) 4. Belle Noel Gypsy Chic Hoop Earrings (www.endless.com) 5. Yves Saint Laurent Reflective Stone Ring (www.mytheresa.com)
So, I'm looking at the shop-by-number montage and realizing how 'patriotic' these picks are, but it's more about proportions than color to start with. The skinny leg jean calls for some volume on top, and what better to bring that than a silk striped blouse from Equipment? In keeping the look somewhere right between Summer and Fall, the shoe stayed neutral and classic with a court pump from Zara.
Tying the loose ends together and polishing things off are a reflective stone statement ring from YSL and Belle Noel earrings that pack a lot of look into hoops. Done and done. Well, almost.

Quick recap: You know what to wear, how to wear it, where to shop, check, check, and check. Now it's time to think about what you're going to do in it, the best part. It's time to consider where those skinny red jeans will take you.
How about a Saturday lunch with old friends that turns into a marathon conversation and slides slowly, right into dinner. No one notices the time though. Above you, a glass ceiling, below you, a table covered with half-full wine glasses, and surrounding you, the best part, friends you only see once or twice a year, but when you do, it's as if ten years never passed.
