Though the weather might not show it, spring is upon us! A time for new beginnings in both life and fashion; meaning a slew of bright colors, shorter hemlines and bold florals are on their way into all of our lives and closets. But until the storm clouds clear and it becomes sandal season at last, we have an easy way for you to inject some spring spice into your wardrobe, without being left frozen in the rain. Colored denim has been around forever in the form of white, black or red jeans, but recently has gone into overdrive with denim of every color popping up in stores and magazines around the world. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on this fun trend!
The key with colored jeans is to pick the right fit, and make the pants the center of your outfit. Lighter colors can be less flattering on legs, so if you do want to go that route, make sure to buy a pair with optimal stretch, or even try out a colored pair of khakis instead. No matter what the color, stick to a neutral top and shoes. The only exception to this rule would be if you wanted to add a patterned top, but even then the colors should be muted and compliment the shade of your jeans. You can also always add a fun colored necklace, scarf, cuff bracelet or bag to play off your chosen color scheme, but make the pants the focal point.
Now we know there are colored jeans everywhere, and it might be hard to decide which to choose, so we’ve done the work for you! Here is a list of our favorite colored denim options for every color palette and budget (in photo above, from left to right)
