Would You Wear Glittery Purple Jeans (Post-NYE)?

Sparkly, shimmering, metallic denim is a really fun idea, and most of us have no problem pulling on the sequins and the shiny coated threads for big nights like New Years Eve (heck, we’re guilty as charged and there are facebook photos to prove it)—but what about January 2nd onward? Would you wear these glittery purple jeans, or do they remind you too much of early David Bowie costumes? Let us know on facebook!


Shine On Jeans ($98) – buy them at Nasty Gal.

Primary Colors: Free People Stretch Denim Utility Jeans In Red & Blue

Make a statement this fall with a pair of Free People stretch denim utility jeans! A fresh take on the traditional skinny, these front panel cargo pocket jeans have a distinct chic design that sets them apart from other less delectable approaches to this style. Namely, the pockets aren’t low on the thigh (which adds additional texture and doesn’t work if you’re trying to look slim). With intricate contour seams, and a perfect ankle length, you can rock this style in ruby red or electric blue. Flats, platform wedges, and fierce stilettos will all suit this pair of jeans. Best of all, they’re on sale now!


Free People stretch denim utility jeans ($75) – buy it at Tobi.
