Style Alert: Colored Jeans

Feb 29, 2012

Colored jeans are showing up everywhere from the catwalks to the crosswalks this year, and they show no sign of disappearing any time soon. Tired of denim blue, washed-out stone-wash, black, white and basic, designers have been turning to color to brighten up the one dull spot in almost everyone’s wardrobes - JEANS.

Let’s face it, denim is a teen’s best friend. It goes with everything, is easy to clean, takes a lot of wear and tear, and once you find a style you like, restocking is a no-brainer. It’s no wonder teens are taking to this trend like little kids to Japanese erasers. So jump on the color bandwagon with these tips on who’s got ‘em, where to get ‘em, and how to wear ‘em.

Women’s Jeans

For women, the jeans are brightly colored and super slim. If you thought the jegging was skinny, wait until you see 7 For All Mankind’s line of multicolored jeans in Skinny, Super Skinny and Second Skin, in colors like lake blue, neon green, deep cantaloupe, neon lemon and floral prints. Tory Burch, Joe’s Jeans, Express, and even Target and Wal-Mart are sporting their own versions of these thicker-than-leggings slim pants.

Get the Look: Women

Brightly colored jeans can really throw off your outfit creation skills. If you’re not confident about how to match it up, start with a bright blue or dark magenta which are closest to jeans colors, making them easier to pair. If you’re going for the neon pants, set off the brightness with an earth-toned patterned shirt. Earth tones are colors you find in nature in moss, trees, rocks, sand and clay. Never pair brightly colored jeans with an equally brightly colored top, whether it’s the same color or completely different, unless you want to look like you’ve stepped straight out of an 80’s video or a clown car. Complete the outfit with earth-toned accessories and shoes. If you want to accent the color of your jeans to pull the look together, repeat it in a headband, hatband or purse.

Men’s Jeans

Levi’s hit 2012 Fashion Week with men’s jeans lighting up the runway in bright yellow, red and royal blue, but they’re not alone in embracing color in their denim. Trendy True Religion, preppy Land’s End, sk8-r style Pac-Sun, The Gap, and many other retailers across the spectrum are showing their colors in straight leg jeans, mostly in burnt orange, mustard, light blue, brown and dark red.

Easier to pair than women’s neon colors, a neutral tee under a dark flannel or cotton button-down will complete your outfit. Beware – don’t match your shirt to your pants or the look will fall flat. Accent the color of your pants with a hat band, like the one on the Levi’s model, if you can pull it off. Otherwise, don’t worry about matching color. The look will speak for itself.

Would You Wear Skinny Jeans?

  • I like them, but don't look good in them.
  • No way - I like my jeans big and baggy.
  • Only girls should wear skinny jeans.

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
