Trends Tuesday: Put Your Blues Behind You

By Posted in - Trends on January 17th, 2012

For today’s Trends Tuesday, we’re hearing again from our resident fashionista, Ashely Hurteau!

Did you see this article in Real Simple? The editors are loving colorful denim, too!

Brightly colored jeans are the new trend that will leave you anything but blue. In the past year, designers have made a simple alteration to classic blue jeans that has transformed them from supporting roles to leading ladies.

From Target to Neiman Marcus, these ultra chic jeans are hot on the racks and can be found at any price point. For those of you who want to be conservative with your wallet, check out these sunny yellow jeans from Forever 21 for just $15. A splurge, but well worth it, is this pair of Joe’s Jeans in tangerine. As I mentioned last week, Pantone named Tangerine Tango the 2012 Color of the Year. Whether you’re pairing them with a simple blouse for work or a barely-there tank for night, these sultry yet sophisticated pants demand attention.

Worried that bright hues are only for spring? Fret not because vibrant jeans can be worn 24/7, 365. Personally, I like to spice up the drab of winter by pairing my electric blue jeans with layered grey tops and sweaters. I am bundled but bold, and exude fashionista wherever I go. In the spring and summer, combine them with a great sandal, sheer top and bronzed tan for a fresh and luminous look.

Be blue no more, these effervescent jeans are here to stay. I’ve told you how I like mine; now share how you wear your ROYGBIV jeans!

    LOVE this post! Thank you for clarifying the bright jeans rule. Personally, I love bold bright colors and own a pair of red, blue, and pink jeans. I wore my red pair the other day with tory gold flats, a white quarter sleeved loose fitting top and a long gold necklace. Not only did I get so many compliments, but I stood out in my bold red rocket jeans!
