(I'm going to make a slight adjustment, and not make this post only about white jeans since I've already covered it earlier this month. For white denim selections, click here.)
Wearing jeans in a different color is an easy way to update your wardrobe without having to change your look too much. This is something that I'm always curious about when I watch makeover shows. I mean, the women look great, but will that teacher, or that stay-at-home mom, really give up their yoga pants and start wearing wool pants with a kitten heel? When it comes to choosing what we're going to wear THAT DAY, isn't it a balance between comfort and style? Unfortunately, as we get older and/or busier, doesn't comfort eventually win out?
This, I think is where colored denim comes in. It's still as comfortable as wearing your jeans, but that little pop of color should keep the fashion police at bay. One caveat though, about neon-bright jeans. Even on skinny teenagers, they look like you're trying too hard, and worse, they aren't flattering. A better option are darker hued colors. Pair white, cranberry or cobalt blue pants with a slim, black V-neck tee shirt, and an animal print or pastel skinny belt, and you've got an instant French-chic outfit.
