How I Style: Coloured Jeans

Hey Girlies,

One of the biggest Spring trends of the moment are coloured jeans. From pretty pastels to bright hues, colour is everywhere this season. Only down side is that colour is something not everyone feels confident in wearing and it can be hard to style. I was a little wary myself at first about trying the coloured denim trend, but now I love it!

First step is to decide what style of jean you want. The most common is the skinny jean, and is the style that this trend is generally worn in. You don't need to wear a super skinny jean though. Straight legged jeans look just as good and are great for those that don't feel as confident in super skinny jeans.

Next up- colour. There is a wide array of colours available so there's bound to be at least one to suit your taste. Brighter shades are harder to pull off-so if you're a bit wary, I'd suggest going for a coloured shade in a less bold of a tone. I have this pair from Topshop and I absolutely love them. These are the Jamie high-waisted skinny in a lovely purple shade. They are made of a very soft denim so are quite comfortable too. They retail for ₤40.

Topshop really do a great range of coloured denim in general. Their jeans are good quality, great fit and at reasonable prices too. Here is another pair in a bright pink, retailing for ₤38.

Topshop carry a great range of coloured jeans so even if these particular one pictured don't tickle your fancy, I would still recommend checking out the many other styles and colours they have on offer.

River Island also have a range of the trend for a slightly cheaper price of ₤30. Here are a lovely green pair:

Now that you have your jeans, the next question is, how to style them? This can be tricky. If you're in the younger age category, it can be easier to pull off more colour. The slightly more mature may want to play it more simple, as to keep the stylish yet classy element to the look. 

If you are up for even more colour, you can tie in the colour blocking trend with your jeans, with a pastel top. Another look for the youth may be a graphic vest style top. This one is great for Summer and  is relatively plain as to not over power the look. It's also from River Island at ₤15.

One trend I've also been loving is lace. Plain lace tops in neutral colours such as cream or white look great paired with coloured denim. It really helps to soften the look. I love this from Abercrombie & Fitch. It is a little pricey, however, at €96.

If you're looking to dress up your look a little, a blouse or a shirt is a great way to do so. This sleeveless blouse with a gorgeous bow and lace detail is a perfect way to do so. Find it at Topshop for ₤32.

Pair it with whatever accessories you wish. Shoes of course depend on the occasion. I love to wear my coloured skinnies with some cute ankle boots. If you're going a little more formal, some nude pumps would be perfect!

Remember this is just how I personally style coloured jeans. If this is not your taste, no worries! Fashion is all about individuality. There are no rules, just have fun with it!
