We’ve now reached that point in the semester where exams and assignments are weighing us down and dragging ourselves out of bed in the morning stars to feel like an accomplishment on its own. Forget about putting together the perfect outfit. It can be tempting to just leave on your yoga pants and call it a day, but fortunately there is a much more stylish, and equally as effortless option. Comfortable, versatile and chic, colored denim will quickly become your favorite item in your wardrobe this fall. Something about colored denim is just effortlessly chic, which lends the same feeling to your outfit. The instant pop of color will brighten your morning as well as your outfit. Throw on a cozy sweater and some boots and no one will ever know you rolled out of bed fifteen minutes before class!
This week’s Fashionista, Yani Weldon, has got this look perfected. Pairing her berry-colored jeans with a comfy white and gray striped sweater and soft grey booties, she is the epitome of comfy-chic. While the look may have been bland with regular denim, the fun color brightens up the look and adds a fresh twist.
Colored denim is everywhere this season, so you won’t need to look far to find a pair you love. Over the summer we saw lots of neon and pastel denim, but fall introduces jewel tones, deep mustard yellows and oxblood. Nordstrom has a huge selection of colors, like these burnt orange skinny jeans that also come in mustard yellow and emerald green. There are lots of options when it comes to completing your look. Since the colored denim makes a bold statement, it’s best to keep the rest of the look relatively simple with a plain T-shirt, scarf and sweater or blazer to top it off. A subtle print top would also look great as long as accessories are kept minimal. Oxblood seems to be the color of the season and a pair of jeans in this gorgeous color would look great paired with black booties and a neutral top. One of the best part about colored denim is their versatility. They don't have the same casual vibe as regular denim, so they are equally appropriate for a day of classes or dressed up for a night out. You can't go wrong with this fun fashion staple, so feel free to lose yourself in the color craze.
