Colored Jeans Rundown

At first, I didn’t think much of this colored jean phenomenon. I bought some dark green jeans just because they were the color of one of my alma maters. This was in 2008, before the craze really took off. I remember wearing them to school one day with a simple white tee and some gold flat sandals, thinking, WHY did I get green jeans? Am I a crazy person? To be honest, I put them in my “donate” pile several times! 
Of course, now these dark green jeans are oh-so-very tame. 
Let’s talk colored jeans.
Still wearing them, 4 years after that first “Am I crazy?” thought! This sweater with the same green in it  creates a harmonious line for the eye. The nice thing about these dark-green jeans is that they transition to all seasons. {Outfit 1} These jeans are F21 and cost $10. They are nice and lightweight, though not stretchy, per se. And easy way to break into the trend.
Pinky-red jeans! I have actually found a lot of ways to wear this color, and a combo with mint (an idea taken from the J.Crew catalogue) was a fun one! If you’re stuck for ideas on how to wear the jeans, you can check out J.Crew or other websites/catalogues for more ideas! {Outfit 2}Brand is BDG, which I think is from Urban Outfitters, generally? These I got at a tag sale for $1. They fit well and I wear them a lot, but they don’t like to stay tucked in neatly (they get wrinkly easily).

My light pink jeans are fun to wear monochromatic-ally since I own a few light pink things (seen here), or with a bright contrast of red! Since the light pink jeans are almost neutral, a bright color works well with them. {Outfit 3} The light pink jeans are Gap Pencil Cut, and I love them. Thrifted (under $10–can’t remember exactly). They are soft, stretchy, and the perfect color. 

My mint jeans are so much fun! I loved wearing them in winter, for an unexpectedly fresh look. Winter white & black really let the mint color shine. Goodness, wearing these puts me in a happy mood! {Outfit 4}
I paid $22 for these at the consignment store. That is generally too much for me, but I just had to have them! Unfortunately, I have to admit they are rather thick and kind of uncomfortable to wear. Some weird brand I can’t find online? Love Park? 

Lastly, break out that color wheel! Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, making them complimentary colors. You can’t go too wrong pairing them! This was my favorite outfit, I think because the outfit really goes for it! This outfit projects oodles of confidence. {Outfit 5}These are my absolute favorite jeans. They were $4 at the thrift store, and they are by far the most “out there” colored jeans I have. Strangely, they are also the ones I’e worn the most, and I’ve only had them a few weeks! I think that is because they are incredibly soft, stretchy, and fit very comfortably. These fit very well and are just the right level of tightness around the ankle, and don’t sag or stretch out, so they look the best tucked into boots, and rolled up. The buttons and rivets are little peace signs 🙂 Xhilaration brand jeans from Target. Unfortunately, I think Target only has Mossimo brand colored jeans right now, which I can’t vouch for, I’m afraid.

Go grab a pair, wherever you can find ’em, and mix up some fun outfits this spring!
