Ok, I have come a bit late to the coloured skinnies trend and bought these jeans. I luff them, but I'm not really sure what to wear with them (shoes or tops), although stomach/bum covering is definitely required. Any ideas oh wise ones?

Oooh fab colour!

I don't wear jeans though so have no helpful advice.

grin thanks Bunny, I'm pleased to have a vote of approval even if no advice!

I've no advice either grin but is the colour more like the actual jeans or the wee swatch?

Gorgeous colour.
I'd go black boots (heels or flats) or black ballet pumps. Black top

I've recently bought a purple pair and wear them with grey, black, white and navy/white striped tops. I wear them tucked into dark brown riding boots and it looks fine although black would probably look better.

The picture is pretty spot on, they aren't quite as luminous as the swatch suggests!

Thanks Cantbelieveitsnotbutter, I'd been thinking black might work so good to have another vote in that direction

I think you could wear black, brown or tan boots - knee high or ankle. For a more dressy option wear with heeled shoes.

They would like nice with a a slouchy jumper in neutral or navy or grey.

bunny what do you wear? All I ever wear is jeans.

Thanks for the suggestions, think I'll go home and have a trying on session later to see what I've got and make a shopping list of what I might need. I'm thinking they'll look great with black heels for going out but not so sure on the daytime options. I do have black, brown and tan boots though so hopefully one pair will look good!

I like Meggles suggestion of navy or grey slouchy jumper...would look lovely.

Panda I wear dresses mostly. Jersey dresses + tights + boots for everyday. Tea dresses with cardies, coloured tights and t-bar not too high heels and other more vintagey stuff. Sometimes pencil skirts with fitted Mad Men-esque tops. Think Joan Holloway on a Primark budget grin

I realised years ago that jeans just do not work on me.
