How to: Bring Back the Bright Colored Denim

Back in 2012, I caught myself red handed in following the trend when I bought this pair of bright colored jeans. I really couldn’t help myself, but now what do I do with them now that the trend has come and gone? I dug this pair of bittersweet (yes it is a color) colored denim out from the bottom of the drawer and was so close to throwing it into the Good Will pile, but then I accepted the challenge of creating a 2014 look with these 2012 pants.

 087 095I decided to tone down the bright and warm orange-pink color with the cool pastel blue and the dark purple. My tip is to contrast bright pants with neutral and/or cool colors. Then add a neutral statement necklace and black shoes, and you’ve got yourself an #ootd that saved you a went-with-the-crowd guilt trip.098

    • Haha. Yea I definitely have those moments. Oh red would look nice with like an off white or sand color. And peach, maybe try a cool light blue like the one I’m wearing in this post. As for the green…sand would look great too! Don’t throw them away! 🙂

  1. Those pants are perfect! I love that color and I like that you kept the rest of the look pretty minimalistic. It allows the pants to do the talking and doesn’t overpower the look. Gorgeous jewelry choices as well!

  2. This post reminds me that I should take out my colored denim from the deep end of my closet ASAP. Btw, I am bit tied up with mommy thing hence a bit late in reading and commenting :)
