Spring Trend Watch: Rainbow-Bright Denim from J Brand

This crop of J Brand beauties has all their classics – dark skinnies, high-waisted flairs, embellished night-out pairs – but more than anything, we’re excited about the colorful styles. We checked in with Rue Stylist Lauren for her expert tips on how to take on the hue-happy trend – from pale pink (“practically a neutral”) to Kelly green.

Play with prints
“If your bottoms are really bright, try a patterned top with at least two colors in it. That will actually tone down an overly bold colorblocked look.”

Take center stage
“Statement jeans can totally carry an outfit, so let them be the focal point. For relaxed daytime looks, wear a slouchy tee with rolled-up sleeves and a pair of sneaks or ballet flats. At night, a sheer blouse and heels instantly dress them up.”

Double down on denim
“Denim on denim can be daunting for some, but colored jeans are a great way to break into the trend.”

Glorify the gams
“J Brands have the perfect amount of stretch, so they always make your legs and thighs look extra sleek. Pair with chunky wedges for added lift.”
