Ready Made Outfit: How to Wear Colored Jeans

August 7th, 2008

Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Yeah, we know that colored jeans are very 1985, but they’re coming back this summer looking surprisingly fresh.  Goes to show that in fashion, what goes out does eventually come back in.  How to wear brightly colored jeans?

Play Up the Color by wearing a colored tee in a complementary color.  Brightly colored jeans are, by nature, playfully casual.  So wear them with a tee that brings on the fun.

Balance with Neutral Colors to your outfit with a light sweater or jacket.  Mixing too many bright colors can make your outfit look schizophrenic, so we like to balance out the brights with some neutrals.  Our favorite neutral to add to brights?  Grey.  We love grey for its ability to provide visual stability in an outfit, and it works a lot better than black for pairing with brights.  Or do as we did here and try a smart looking stripe.

Layer on Accessories to complete the casually playful look.  Look for fun accessories such as colorful cuffs, chunky necklaces, or oversized cocktail rings.  Brightly colored jeans deserve equally playful accessories.

    I like the bright jeans. I’d wear them in turquoise and petal-red. They look happy and fresh. And back in the 80’s I loved my pair of carnation pink ones!
