I see you rocking your red J Brand jeans all the time and love how you pull off the look. You have inspired me to buy myself a pair of their colored jeans. I opted for the aubergine pair and am struggling on how to make them more work appropriate. I work in a business casual environment in a position of authority (don’t tell any of the staff that I spend a solid hour a day on The Frisky and other blog loves!). I also am among the youngest employees in the company and by far the youngest manager (I’m 29). Anyway, I would love your take on how to dress up my new jean loves and make them more work appropriate.– Angie
Aubergine is a surprisingly tricky color to wear. And though it’s color wheel opposite is yellow, I wouldn’t recommend you go there. Instead, I like pairing deep purple with another dark, warm shade, like navy or black. To keep the outfit classy, wear high heels. Click after the jump to see how I would dress up these cool jeans.
