Poor Khloe Kardashian got caught in a bit of a fashion trap this weekend when she tried out the new colored jean trend -- and unfortunately failed miserably at pulling off the look.
Pastel and brightly hued jeans are all the rage this season, and as long as you're wearing the right shade and style, you can create an eye-popping, trendy style, which Khloe's mom, Kris Jenner, proved last week.
Khloe, however, did nothing to flatter her gorgeous curves by choosing this mint-green pair of skinny jeans.
Pastel shades are risky no matter how you look at them, because they really don't leave anything up to the imagination. Wearing a light shade of colored jeans is pretty much the same thing as wearing white -- and we all know just how unforgiving bright white pants can be (yikes!). And with pastels, you have the added possibility of looking like an Easter egg. And nobody wants that.

A better choice for Khloe would've been a much darker color of jeans -- a red or bright pink might have worked well enough if they'd been the right cut. If you're going to up the ante on your style and try out a bold trend like this, it's essential that you choose your color carefully and take the entire fit into account as well.
But honestly, some trends aren't exactly for everyone. I can't help but think that maybe Khloe should choose a traditional, dark blue wash for her skinny jeans from here on out. Sometimes it's better to stick with what works instead of trying to step too far outside the box when it comes to fashion.
Have you broken down and bought a pair of colored jeans yet?
