I’ve decided to jump on the trend wagon and purchase (one) pair of colored jeans. I have a red pair from about five years ago that I’ve hung onto. They’re wide leg, but still look cute! So although I love red jeans I think I may opt for another shade.
The biggest issue with colored jeans is they either look REALLY cute or REALLY bad. I’m guessing I’ll have to try on twenty pairs to get it right. My teeny-tiny friend had on a royal blue pair last week. They looked perfect on her but my guess is she weighs about 95 lbs, with my 5’8″ frame, I can assure you I don’t weigh anything close to 95 pounds.
The second issue, colored jeans need to be paired with the right look and shoes. I actually don’t love them with black shoes unless they are light weight shoes (check the Victoria Beckman image – I think that’s Victoria isn’t it?).
Third issue: pastels are out for me, just not flattering.
