Blue Jeans vs. Colored Jeans

27 Sep

Colored Jeans are one of the newest trends this fall.  They have been seen on tons of celebrities, and continued to blow up the runways that foreshadow next spring and summer (not going anywhere soon).

Blue jeans will always be in, but I hope colored jeans stick around longer than the average fad, because they’re just fun!  It’s a different way to add color to your outfit.

All of these ladies are wearing skinny jeans.  The skinny jean is a great style to compliment a colored wash.  This way you can wear heals, or boots, incorporating the color into any outfit.

My personal favorite colors for this fall are the dark blue and red, (the Kardashian girls know what’s up!)  Yellow, and light pink are definitely not something you should be caught in this fall, save those for the summer.  Pair the jeans with nice fall colors like browns, and neutrals.  Black and white are always good choices, obvi.

Notice: every girl above is wearing a solid colored top.  Even if you think a printed top may match well, it will most likely look like too much is going on, so stick with solids.

Check out Hot Topic for decently priced colored jeans (approx. $30)!

Flare vs. Skinny

15 Sep

The flare jean is back!  After a long few years of skinny jeans, NY fashion week last spring showcased the flare jean for a Fall 2011 look.  After models tore up the look on the runway, celebs have been seen wearing the 70’s chic pant on the streets.  Just look at Gwyneth Paltrow, Gisele Bündchen and Zoë Saldana:

I’ve been a huge fan of skinny jeans because they allow you to show off your boots–one of my all time favorite looks is a skinny jean with a classic leather riding boot–but I have to admit I’m a little excited the flare jean is making a come back.  Flare jeans are pretty flattering, especially in a darker wash.  By adding a heel under your flare, you can make your legs appear longer, thus looking a bit slimmer which is always a plus!  You can be pretty flexible in what top you pair with flare jeans–as you can see above the look can be completed with a blazer, casual shirt, or tucked in oxford and look great all ways. The style is back and I think adding a pair of flares to your wardrobe is a must for this fall!
