STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Colored Denim Fascination

Style Advice of the Week

There is simply no other way to brighten your day other than by adding some colored denim. This new trend has been seen everywhere, from the runway to campuses across the country. It has been a crazed obsession — stores can not sell the colored denim any faster. I even put myself on a waiting list at American Eagle Outfitters for their watermelon colored denim, because I knew I had to have them. J Brand has a new line of colored denim that has been “flying out the door” according to “On the Runway,” of The New York Times. These skinny denim pants are priced at $176 and since March, the brand has sold over 100,00 pairs!

It’s an incredible trend and our Fashionista photographed here has nailed it. She was immediately spotted leaving the Fashion building at Kent State University showcasing her colored pants. I love how she really wanted her pants to stand out by downplaying the other colors of her tops, bag and shoes. This look can be easily tossed on in a matter of few seconds when you’re running late for an exam or for work. It’s quite simple: throw on your favorite white tee, add the perfect neutral colored cardigan (the one that you probably wear daily) and then add your comfortable, worn neutral colored ballet flats (the ones you also wear with every outfit). This Fashionista’s bag is the perfect size to lug around across campus, holding your basic necessities. If you are obsessed with color as much as I am, then opt for a more colorful bag that complements the colored pants. Perhaps that turquoise bag from Michael Kors that you and I have both been eying for months would be the perfect suit for your outfit? Whether you choose to add more color or not, it’s always the best start of the day when you can throw on some colored denim. I promise you that.
