Colored Denim Goes Mainstream

The colored denim trend has been with us for several seasons, but this year it seems to have really taken hold with consumers. From neon brights to sophisticated pastel shades, colored denim seems to be everywhere. Once just for the most adventurous fashionistas, now colored denim can be seen even everyone from toddlers through grown-ups. But how best to wear this colorful trend? There are several ways.

My first suggestion is for the bright denim shades seen mostly for Spring. Pair them with neutrals or black and white. They can also be worn with prints that compliment the color of the denim. This is especially true today as we are in a print cycle and there are many shades of colored denim to choose from that will coordinate well with just about any print or pattern.

Other Colored Denim Options

For a more subdued and sophisticated take, pair the darker and pastel shades with tonal pieces. This is a great option to dress this look up if you want to stay casual but wear it to work or for a more formal occasion. Colored denim can also be found on jackets, shorts, skirts and other key pieces so it is now a versatile item in anyone's wardrobe. Even men now have several options if they want to brighten up their ensemble.

The most fashion-forward option is to combine bright jeans with bright tops to create a color-block look. This trend has been very important this year but make sure that the colors you mix are complimentary and do not clash! This takes a bit of merchandising and is for those that want to push the style envelope.
