J Brand 11 inch Ankle Skinny Jeans
What: J Brand 11" Ankle Skinny Jeans in Pretty Pink

Why they're hot: Everything old is new again... especially when it comes to fashion. During my high school years, colored jeans were super popular. I specifically remember emerald green and deep blue pairs in my closet. And, for Summer 2011, colored jeans are big yet again. Although, thankfully, this time around a slim silhouette makes colored jeans fun and fresh rather than old and tired.

The hottest new colored jeans on the block? J Brand Pink Skinny Jeans in a slightly cropped cut, which have been popping up on starlets and fashionistas on both coasts. These new ankle-length jeans come in Pretty Pink -- the most popular color -- as well as Bright Blue, Bright Red, Bright Fuchsia and Bright Yellow.

What to wear them with: To let the color of the jeans take center stage, try pairing these pants in pink with a basic tee in dove grey and shoes in nude or natural tones. Feeling a little more adventurous in the fashion department? Try pairing in a contrasting color, like orange or mint, for Summer's hot color block effect. The key to pulling off color blocking? Make sure your contrasting colors are a similar color saturation -- so, pastels with pastels, brights with brights.
