Right Brights: J.Crew Toothpick Jeans in Garment-Dyed Twill

✻✻✻

A great departure from primary colored-denim, J.Crew’s straight leg “Toothpick” jeans are available in an array of color-burst shades. From bright papaya, neon persimmon, light citron, festival green to standard white, these jeans will brighten-up any wardrobe.

These jeans are extremely soft and comfortable. The skinny style has a flattering fit and the soft stretchy cotton provides a magical slimming effect. The ankle length accentuates spring style for wearability all-year-round.

When wearing bright jeans and denim, your legs are the focal point. The safest way to wear bright denim jeans is to pair it with tops, cardigans and tees in neutral colors. Feeling bold and playful? Try pairing your bright denim with an added burst of color. This can be as subtle as an accent cotton scarf or as bold as color-blocking with a cotton tunic in a contrasting color.

Caring for Colored Denim: From J.Crew: The nature of this product may result in color transfer- we suggest laundering them at home before wear.

Break out of your usual blues and opt for bright and cheery denim.

How To: Polished Ponytail

✯✯✯

Worn at the gym or gala, a ponytail is a versatile look that is both playful and elegant. My favorite look for red carpet in a couture gown, the ponytail is understated and refined.

Needed:

✒ Boar Bristle Hairbrush

✒ Hair Elastic

✒ Styling Moose

✒ Hairspray

✒ Shine Serum

How To:

✒Day-old hair transitions better into a ponytail. Start by adding a dollop of styling moose to hair for some weight and texture.

✒For sleek ponytail, run a flat iron over hair. For wave/curly style, wrap 1-inch sections around curling-wand and repeat in diferent directions.

✒Brush hair back into ponytail. Using a boar-bristle brush will help with bumps and tangles.

✒ Secure with elastic.

✒Tame fly-aways with a spritz of hairsray.

✒ For added polish, run a shine serum through ponytail.

Optional:

Hide the elastic: Pull a pencil-thick piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail. Wrap hair around elastic. Leave 2-inces to pull down through the elastic. Secure with bobby pins.

Add hair accesories: Find a great headband or jeweled clip, or take a very thin piece of ribbon and tie a sweet bow on top or hide bow underneath, bobby pin to secure.
