For anybody who wants to stand out by wearing fashionable colored clothing, a colored jean is an excellent choice. Jeans is very versatile and goes well with any type of casual clothing. It is available in colors ranging from bright colors to the more subdued black or gray. Wearing colored jeans is unseasonal and you can wear it with neutral colors clothing like black, white, gray and tan that will provide a good match and not taking away the attention from your colored jeans.

Colored jeans were very popular back in the 80’s but now it’s back but with a dash of modern style. The fashion world welcomes it back as seen on many celebrities and fashionable people. Let us look at some ways on how to wear colored jeans.

  •  Choose the cut that suits your body type. A boot cut or flared style balances out the hips and butt which makes it more flattering. Straight and skinny jeans give more of an extreme look in colored jeans. Skinny jeans make one appear slimmer and taller than actual height. It could go well with shorter women but not for those who are extra tall, as it would appear too awkward.
  • Colored jeans look trendy for ages 20’s and up but it can also look fashionable for all ages. To avoid looking too flashy avoid primary colors such as bright blue, yellow and red. Go for toned down hues like softer shades of red, light blue and olive greens that make a mature figure flattering.

  • Wearing colored jeans makes it the focal point of your outfit since they are so vibrant. Pair with a neutral top to balance out the bright bottom color. You can use black, white, cream, brown or tan top. It would look great with a white button-down shirt, a black silk shirt or cream-colored blouse.
  • Pick out the shoes to match your jeans depending on the image you want to project, be it exciting or reserved. To escalate height, a high-heeled sandal or pump with the same color as your colored jeans elongates the body. If you are tall, go for flats or sandals also with the same color as your pants. If you want to avoid attention on your feet, pick a neutral colored leather shoe.
  • Look for matching accessories to compliment your colored jeans. Use fun belts, bangles and a variety of jewelries. Pick those that will contrast with the color scheme of your outfit or one that is close to the color of your jeans. You can also add a multi-colored scarf to match your top and bottom for added flair.
  • You can always play with patterns as long as there is one similar color to your colored jeans to keep you looking fashionable and hip. Nautical stripes, polka dots, floral or geometric prints will make it all look trendy and playful.
  • During transition weather, pair up with a light jacket such as a light trench coat, cardigan or blazer. Keep the season-appropriate look as well as being protected from light rain or mild winds.

Don’t be afraid to get noticed. Look fabulously hip with bright colored jeans!
