Many of us denim addicts wonder sometimes how to get away a bit from our blues and blacks, without having to resort to some pastel (blah, not my kind), or bright neon (nah, I pass). White is just not always an option at least, this season – snow, rain, wind, dirty streets etc.
Now, we’re pretty much aware of the fact that red is the big color of RN and way into summer, at least. And high waisted cropped wide leg jeans are a must-have style for sure.
Free People hit the jackpot with their High Tide A-line jean because:
First off, the red is not a bright and shrill kind of red, but rather a more “demure” burnt out red which has everything to do with denim. It’s a “denim pair” of jeans in red and not a twill pair like so many others.
And second, the style absolutely rocks with the high waist, the slit pockets in front, and a simple big button at the waist, but without the belt loops. The cropped inseam of 29.5″ is perfect for showing off your shoes and then later, in summer, your tanned ankles adorned with some sexy ankle chains.
You don’t have to think a lot about how to wear them either, they are easy to style. You can dress them up or down, depending on the occasion and on your mood. And the red color certainly will make you stand out in any crowd.
As per the review on the Free People site, the jeans run “slighhhtttlllyyy big but not much”, so if you are in between sizes, I suggest going with the smaller one.
