Red jeans, check jacket and a hint of mustard

Sometimes outfits come about in completely random ways. That’s how it was with this combination. I bought these red jeans a couple of years ago on eBay. They were brand new with tags and cost about £10. But when they arrived…alas, they were too tight. So they’ve been sitting in the wardrobe ever since. The other day I was going through all my old jeans and having a little sort out, when I thought I’d try them on again. To my delight they fit 🙂 So of course I had to wear them right away!

The mustard shoes looked a bit random without something else to mirror them…if only I had a matching top…

I was trying on different shoes with them to see what worked and what didn’t, when to my surprise I really liked these (super comfortable) mustard/ochre shoes with the red. I then picked out this check jacket (after trying on a few others) but I needed a top to bring it all together. The mustard shoes looked a bit random without something else to mirror them…if only I had a matching top…

A black top looked too heavy, and as the jacket has a small collar I didn’t want to wear a white shirt. I racked my brains for a top to match the shoes, when I remembered the top from the mustard co-ord. It’s not the ideal style because of the cropped length and the full sleeves, but until I find a more suitable alternative it proves that red jeans, check jacket and a hint of mustard can work together! A simple black faux leather bag finished off the look.

Coloured jeans make a fun alternative to blue and black denim, and I’m now looking to add a bright green and a camo print pair to my collection. Do you love brightly-coloured or patterend jeans?
