Colored Jeans? Yes.

Last week, as you may or may not remember, I did a post on colored jeans.  I asked on for your opinion on them, and 79% of those who answered gave colored jeans the thumbs up.

So . . . naturally, I bought myself a pair.
And, naturally, I ended up being obsessed with them.

And, naturally, I got a little cocky and made Mista T. take glamor shots of  me wearing them.
So, the verdict is in:

                                                                         Colored Jeans?  Yes.

I do have a few colored jean "rules," though:

1.  Buy the right size.  I know, I know . . . this applies to all pants . . . but because these pants are so bold, buying the correct size is especially important.  If you buy too small, weird wrinkles and bunching will be more apparent. 
2.  Pair colored jeans with a longer top.  I love how tucked in shirts look with wide leg pants . . . but with colored skinnes, I feel like it draws too much attention to the crotch area.  Which is not cute. 
3.  Be confident.  If you're going to wear colored jeans, wear colored jeans.  Stand up straight, smile, and act like you love what you look like.  You'll look better this way.  I promise.

I love them! When I got red pants, I couldn't ever find them as skinnies, so I had to get flare. I'd love to know where you got yours! St. george? Shopping date soon? :)

Nikskie said...

Keri said...

ADORABLE, you look awesome! I don't think I could pull them off. :)

Emma Frances said...

LOVE your breakdown of colored jeans and how to wear them absolutely awesomely! Haha. I totally get the crotch thing. Baha. I feel like that might be something weird about Old Navy jeans possibly. And then it's just super accentuated with colored jeans. Long tops are the solution though! I'm LOVING your glamour shots!

TaraR said...

I'm a fan! It's such a fashion "must" right now. I have red and light pink {almost tan}. My next purchase will be electric blue...saw them the other day and I'm totally in love.

I do agree with you though - those rules MUST be followed. ;)

I actually have a pair of red pants as well! I love them. I don't wear them as often as I should (hello, gorgeous color!), but I still enjoy them. I wore them to the office once (we have a really laid-back atmosphere) and people were shocked that I had them for some reason, haha. I just love the color. I would love to find a bright, vivid blue, or a deep emerald green as well.
