Colored denim has been around for a couple seasons now and every year I love it more and more. I was a little nervous to try colored denim, thinking that it wasn’t going to look the same on me as it does in straight sized girls. Well, lets be honest, nothing I wear is going to look the same as it does on straight sized girls. If I constantly kept this thought in my head I would never wear anything other than a sack. That isn’t really living the “never settle” diva lifestyle I want to live, is it?
Why I Love
The reason I chose colored denim for this week’s Pick Of The Week is because, honestly, they are fun! It doesn’t matter what personality or style preference you have, there is colored denim for you. Since it’s still summer time, I am loving the lighter colored denim. I got these pink pair of denim jeggings last summer from Maurices and I didn’t wear them a lot. I think I was still a little self conscious about how I would look in them. But life is too short and there is no point in spending money on something for it to just sit in my closet.
When styling a colored jean like these, you want to either pair it with a neutral colored top or something that is in the same color family. I wouldn’t go with an exact color match, it would be too matchy-matchy. Something a shade or two in an opposite direction would work. The pink in this top from Lane Bryant is lighter than the jeans and the blue adds a nice contrast to the look so I don’t look like walking bubble gum!
The top is still in stock and is currently part of Lane Bryant’s Buy One Get One For $5 deal, bonus! Like I previously stated, the jeans are from last summer but you can get similar items here, here, and here. Everything I have linked for you is on sale, so make sure you act fast!
Are you currently rocking the colored denim trend or is it something on your wish list? I hope by seeing this look you are willing to take a chance and step outside of your comfort zone!
