The Look for Less: J.Crew's Colorful Toothpick Jeans

J.Crew's colorful toothpick jeans are available in green, blue, yellow, pink and coral for $108.

I spied them at my local store over the weekend and tried to recreate some of the January catalog looks in the dressing room. Please ignore my boots, they don't go with the look but that's all I had to work with.

Here's another J. Crew look...

...and here's my recreation. Kinda looks like I'm not wearing any pants but I am! The coral/pink doesn't photograph well.

Finally, here's a look I saw on one of the mannequins - lime green sweater with blue jeans. Needs a scarf and/or belt to tie it all together.

Want the look for less? Check out Charlotte Russe for some electric colored skinny jeans, just $29.99 online (and I saw them in store for $25).

I'm totally hooked on colored denim, and I love J.Crew's styling ideas - unexpected and classy ways to work colored denim into your wardrobe.

LOVE colored demin! I am obsessed, but not for $108, so thanks for the tips!

Love your from catalog to fitting room looks! :-) You look great in the colored jeans. I also saw the Charlotte Russe colored jeans in store, and LOVED the colors. Didn't have time to try them on but will have to go back. Some of my favorite jeans have been from there! (Although their skinnies haven't worked out well for me - yet.)

Tourquoise jeans??? My favorite color!!! I am going to be all over these! Thanks for the heads up. P.s. how was sizing? True to size or did they run big or small?

The J.Crews? Very skinny tight fit. But then again, I've been having issues fitting into my jeans lately (I blame the holidays) so you might want to try these on in person if you can. I didn't have time to try on the Charlotte Russes. Also, I got red and purple skinny jeans at Forever 21 that fit true to size.

yayyy thanks!!! I have been eyeing bright colored jeans since Jcrew stole my heart this spring, but I just can't afford to break the bank that doesn't exist ;-)

They also have them at Target. The rack at mine was wiped out.

Where can I get Coral Pink Skinnies? I have been looking EVERYWHERE, and they are either sold out, or too expensive..

Iam also looking for some colred skinnies that are a pale mint green.

Do you have any suggestions where I can find some? I want to spend $50 or less. (preferably Less haha)
