J Crew Toothpick Ankle Jean in Garment-Dyed Twill: Neon Violet

I have quite a few pairs of J Crew denim now due to the cute colors, and super soft denim material. This new color caught my eye on the J Crew site, so I decided to check it out in stores.

Here is a stock photo of the J Crew Toothpick Ankle Jean in Garment-Dyed Twill in Neon Violet:

Here is the denim on me:


As you can see, the color is radically different from what is displayed online. Although I would have preferred the lighter purple, this more vibrant one is pretty too. The fit is pretty standard with the other J Crew denim and is true to size. I am wearing a size 26. They are not super flattering on my thighs, but the color and softness make up for it.

Thanks for reading!

Oh yay! Thanks for posting this. I too am a 26 and was curious as to how they fit....I've been really wanting this same shade but have been too nervous to buy since I have to online and won't be able to try on instore. This color is super cute, and I personally like the darker coloring. So glad you posted this :)

The jeans look great on you! This color really caught my eye in person, even though I probably liked the thumbnail color better, however the fabric just didn't work on me. I like the jeans paired with the neutral colors in that top!

Your new jeans are so pretty. Love the color.

They are a stunning colour, and you look great in them. My legs fit a 26 but my waist is more 27, so I always have a belly roll!

Tasia: If you decide to get one, I hope you love your pair! Even though it is a bright purple, it seems easy to pair with neutrals, chambray and sweaters!

Life as a cat: I agree, the lighter color is to die for, the darker one is still pretty though. I'm not sure about the fit either. It seems less flattering than past season's colored denim.

Girlie Blogger: Thank you! :)

Tabitha: I'm the opposite haha! I'm hippy, so I need to size up for my butt and thighs.

Hi, I have never bought J. Crew denim before and I was wondering about the sizing. At urban Outfitters I am a 26 and in a lot of jeans sizes I am 26 or size 2. Do you think I should order a 26 in J. Crew as well? Or do their sizes run small/large?

Hi AJ! I am a 26 as well at Urban Outfitter's jeans/shorts. I am a size 0/2 at J Crew if you have tired any of their other clothes. I would definitely recommend a size 26 in the J Crew denim, we sound around the same size.

Hope this helps and hope you love the J Crew denim! :)
