How to wear: Coloured Jeans
When it comes to buying jeans, the temptation to play things safe is unusually strong. Don’t believe me? Take a look in your wardrobe, are you confronted by an endless sea of blue and black denim? If so you’re in the majority – and yet why do so many of us limit ourselves when there are so many alternatives on the market? Coloured jeans are a great way to subtly make an individual statement that goes with almost anything. Here’s our guide to some alternative shades…
Green isn’t an obvious choice for jeans, but we’ve found that they often work surprisingly well – particularly in the summer sunshine. They have a vibrant, natural look and they work well against light, neutral shades like a print dress or women’s top. They’re also a nice entry point into coloured jeans as you can get them in very subtle lighter shades, like these Vivien Caron Stud Detailed Stretch Jeans. If you find that it works well you can move on to more eye-catching pieces like these dynamic Bonbon Coloured Skinny jeans.
For a beautifully feminine, light-hearted appearance, pink jeans can be a perfect choice. Pink jeans work best on a casual outfit, so wear it with opened toed sandals and a summer shirt. If you take a look at our Twill Skinny Jeans you’ll see how to build a beautiful summer ensemble around some pink jeans with simple women’s top and a shirt.
If you still associate white jeans with dodgy 80s boybands like Bros, it’s time to re-examine your prejudices. White jeans are stylish, dynamic and professional and every style-conscious woman should own a pair. We’re currently loving these AJC Denim Stretch Bootcut Jeans. Wear them with a statement belt and some killer black heels for a fabulous office-friendly outfit. They make great outdoor wear too, as white clothes don’t absorb heat as much as darker shades.
