Dare Yourself to Wear Bright Colored Denim

color denim expressI never thought I could wear colored denim. I love the look on other women but I kind of felt like I would look like a giant misshapen fruit roll-up in them. Make that a very unattractive and giant misshapen fruit roll-up especially if I wore a top that was the same color as my pants. These Express models (at left) however look amazing in their one-color outfits.

I'm happy to say that I'm doing it! I'm daring to wear colored jeans, and I would do so with a solid color top (perhaps a simple black, white, or grey) or even a muted print. I'm not longer afraid and I will look delicious in NOT a fruit roll-up kind of way.

Check out the great selections I found (at really good prices).


These Colored Ultra Skinny Jean from Aeropostale are on sale for $24.75. This banana yellow is a nice alternative to white jeans (which are often hard to wear for some). If you don't like mellow yellow, they also come in turquoise, red, and blue.

One of the most exciting designer meets big box store collaborations going on is Rock & Republic's mash-up with Kohl's and the line they produced did not disappoint! Kohl's sent me some samples and their Hamburg Skinny Crop Jeans on sale for $54.99 are super soft and so well-made. And the color? I'm going to call it must-have red. With your Kohl's cash and their constant sales, you can probably score these for less.

Celebrity Pink's Colored Skinny Jeans from Dillard's is just $29.99. This bold blue isn't as daring as some of the other colors, but a baby step into colored denim wearing wonderfulness!
