street style loving - coloured denim

I've noticed over the past couple of months, peppered throughout all the street style websites and blogs I follow, the perfect little way to spruce up a tired and dulling wardrobe - coloured denim!
Red, fresh green and royal blue are my favourites so I made this little collage showcasing some of my favourite ways to wear them.

My favourite is probably the last one on the right with the striped top (don't ask me why but I've been looking for the perfect breton striped top for ages and I still haven't found it. I've been close a couple of times but my size wasn't available... *tear*). So simple and put together yet with a hint of creativity.

I tried a pair of green skinnies at Zara when I was in Europe and the colour was perfect but the style did not look good on me at all - it made my behind look like a flat pancake and nobody wants to have that!!

I'm going to continue my search for these because I am convinced that I need a fun pair of jeans for this season. I still remember seeing a girl in Munich this July rocking a bright red pair of skinnies, simple white pocket t-shirt, a black leather jacket and a Chanel wallet on chain worn across her body. I kept staring like a big creep because it was such a simple and cool outfit.

What do you think of this trend? Have you seen or tried any bright skinny jeans this season?

  2. I'm on a lookout for a well-fitted burgundy pair! But I guess that's just the color I want to have everything in right now!

  3. I am absolutely in love with AG Stevies from Anthropologie in a muted purple color. They fit so well and are so versatile!

  10. p.s the jbrands r pretty pricey but i got it in the u.s but if u go to singer22.com, they are 132 which i think is a steal compared to 250 from aritzia/holtz

  17. i have a pair of red pants from F21 that fit surprisingly well and my sister bought a pair of skinny burgundy levi's (around $32) that i'm quite jealous of..but the F21s were only $14.50! and i didn't want to spend so much on a trendy piece.

    i've also been looking for a breton-like striped t for awhile with no luck :(

  18. I really like this look! I'm afraid the look might be a bit young for me. What do you think?

  21. I absolutely love the look but cannot find a pair to fit me anywhere! I have trouble finding jeans normally so with limited coloured style it just seems impossible! I'm not giving up yet though - I want green, red and burgundy versions! xx

  22. Thats a fashion statement. The stripes top and the pair of red trousers are glam, it can make you get the right attention

  23. I love those trousers' colours, I'm def going for a pair of them as soon as I can! the green ones are just great!
