{Saturday Style} How to Wear Colored Denim

COLORED JEANS ........... my new obsession. We've been having some kind of heat wave here in Arizona so far this month. Which has put me in the mood for MORE COLOR! With spring right around the corner we are seeing color everywhere, especially in pants! Since these beauties have hit the racks i believe i have purchased.. don't judge.......8 different colors.. i have found them at many different stores, Target (19.99), H&M(12.95), Forever 21 (19.99), Zara (19.99), Nordstrom Rack (29.99). Whenever i wear one of my colored jeans it never fails that someone comments on them. Most of the time the comment is "i wish i can pulls those off" or "you have to be a size 4 or smaller to wear those". To both these comments and any other negative comment about wearing a colored pant i have an answer.. well 3 answers. Neutrals, prints, or a jacket. The answer to being "able " to wear a colored jean is to stick to your top being either neutral, a print, or throw on a jacket.. Lets start with the
Neutral .. sometimes the key to chic is simplicity, Which means if you decide to step out in those flaming yellow jeans, you want to opt for a neutral top. The easiest way to pull this look off is a white t or tank, with your fun jeans and a pair of wedges..
Prints.. ugh boy do i love me some animal prints.. one in particular.. CHEETAH..Picture this.. Cheetah top, colored jean , and nude shoe. Super fun, a little bold but perfect for spring!
Jacket... If you really what to make the colored jean look less edgy and more sophisticated try throwing on a structured jacket. Try to stick with a jacket that fits well (clean lines) and goes no lower then the bottom of your bum bum.. :) and be sure to wear any of these looks with confidence, nothing says HOT like confidence does!!:) Here are a few ideas of looks that might work for you!
