I read an article that questioned whether the colored denim trend would endure? Before I even saw Katie Holmes wearing red Isabel Marant leather pants on Jay Leno Tuesday night, I would’ve bet “yes.” Though, I didn’t see many wearing colored denim this past season, I think you’ll see the fashion-forward step out this Fall and maybe a bigger following next Spring. I could be wrong, but my gut is based on the success of Gloria Vanderbilt’s rainbow assortment back in the late ’70s. Back then I had Gloria Vanderbilt jeans in red, bright yellow and a purple, baby-wale corduroy. (I might have to be convinced otherwise if we see acid-washed jeans come back into ready-to-wear fashion.)

Whichever fit you fancy — whether skinny, flared or wide-leg — red seems like a no-brainer.
1. Skinny: AG Jeans
2) Flared: Rag & Bone
3) Wide Leg: True Religion
Thanks to Katie Holmes, retailers and buyers who took risks with colored denim can mark her appearance on Jay Leno (Aug. 2nd) as a red-letter day, even though the likes of Ashley Greene and Emerson Fry have already been sporting red.
