8 Ways To Wear Colored Denim This Spring

Colored denim is a great way to bring spring color into your wardrobe. We found four different pairs—a pastel, a bright, a neon, and a boyfriend—and styled them eight ways. Whether you’re fully on board the colored-denim bandwagon or still making up your mind, you’ll be able to find stylish outfit inspiration right here!
  • Current/Elliott The Roller Jeans

    We'd be tired of hearing about how great mint green is if we didn’t completely agree with how great mint green is. Seriously, is there any way you can’t wear this color this season? These rolled jeans live up to all the hype and are one of our favorite pairs of colored skinny jeans for spring!

  • Pair Mint Skinny Jeans With Prints

    Colored-denim newbies tend to stick with safer options like a solid tee but we’re here to say it's okay to throw a bold print into the mix! This pretty little outfit is spring perfection.

  • Sabine Bohemian Print Blouse

    A beautiful bohemian-print blouse looks effortlessly cool with a pair of pastel-colored skinny jeans. Don’t worry too much about the shades matching perfectly—this combo works because the blouse has a lot of pink and tan in it, which look great with mint green.

  • Ancient Greek Sandals

    A bit of metallic on the strap dresses up a pair of plain leather sandals—and the neutral color balances out all the color going on up top!

  • Sequin Tear Drop Filagree Earrings

    A necklace runs the risk of fighting with the pattern of your top, but intricate gold earrings are always a safe bet when it comes to accessorizing. 

  • Pastel Skinnies With Wedge Sneakers

    You'll see your pastel jeans in a new light when you pair them with sporty pieces like we did with this colorful casual outfit. We told you colored denim was versatile! 

  • Old Navy Vintage Baseball Tee

    Baseball tees play into that sporty trend that’s big this spring. We especially love the bright orange sleeves on this one! 

  • BaubleBar Monogram Necklace

    Add a personal touch to your outfit with a monogram necklace. The gold swirly typeface is the perfect accessory for such a casual outfit.

  • Ash Bowie Wedge Sneakers

    We've already given you 11 reasons to try the wedge sneaker trend—now, here’s one great way to wear them. The banana yellow color with mint green skinnies is most definitely snap worthy!

  • Michael Kors Colored Skinny Jeans

    The term "colored denim" can mean a lot nowadays. This hot pink pair falls into the bright or bold category, and in case you haven’t guessed, there are about a million ways to wear bright colored skinny jeans, too!

  • Updated Jeans and Tee

    Jeans and a simple T-shirt no longer imply a plain sense of style. A cute graphic tee and colored jeans are stylish and so easy! If you’re looking for a killer outfit you can turn to on days when you’re running late (happens to the best of us), this ensemble is your bet.

  • RD Style Vegan Leather Moto Jacket

    Vegan leather is great for two reasons—the obvious animal friendliness and the affordable price! This luxe leather jacket is under $100, which makes it easier to justify purchasing. Army and military-style jackets are popular this spring, and we love that this color hints at that trend and combines it with the ever-stylish leather jacket.

  • Out of Print Novel Tee in Daisy

    The release of "The Great Gatsby" seems to have started a wave of Gatsby-inspired fashions. The glamorous jewelry and frocks of the 1920s are lovely, but we happen to adore this graphic tee inspired by the original cover design of the book.

  • Charles Philip Shanghai Liz Metallic Slippers

    Metallic slippers are pretty and can add a chic finishing touch to your look. You can also wear them with sundresses or boyfriend jeans this season.

  • Pink and Red Ensemble

    For the gal who's really not afraid of color, pink and red is a really chic color combo. Shove those cheesy Valentine’s Day associations out of your head and get ready to make a statement in this bold outfit!

  • ASOS Peplum Top in Spot Print

    We love a good peplum top and this red-and-white-dotted version is no exception. Pair it with cropped black pants and pumps for a trendy, work-appropriate look!

  • ASOS Plate + Stud Waist Belt

    A thin gold-plate belt makes any top look more luxe. We like that this belt snaps in back and is sized for your waist so you don’t have to do that complicated tuck with the extra length. 

  • Pour La Victoire Sable Pumps

    A little more red on the bottom completes the outfit, don’t you think? These bold peep-toe pumps are hot, and you can wear them with a lot more than colored skinny jeans! Try them with a patterned skirt or your little black dress for starters.

  • Maison Scotch Parisienne Skinny Denim

    Need something a little bolder this season? Then neon it is! This pair of yellow skinny jeans will brighten up your day whenever you wear them—which could be more often that you think! Here are a couple of style ideas to get you started.

  • Neon for the Office

    Make Casual Friday extra stylish when you wear your neon-colored skinnies. A white blouse or tee under a white blazer with nude pumps keeps the look professional!

  • Banana Republic Monogram Tuxedo Blazer

    Before long you'll end up owning a blazer in every color of the rainbow—and white is one hue you definitely don’t want to forget. It’s a fresh way to look pulled together this spring and summer.

  • Sabine Spikes Pendant Necklace

    A pendant necklace is the perfect single accessory with a blazer or tee. This one adds just the right amount of color and is enough jewelry for an easy minimalistic look.

  • Michael Kors Avery Ankle Pumps

    Strappy nude pumps are way more interesting than your average heels! They’d also look sexy paired with a mini skirt or your neon jeans and a silk tank after work!

  • A Night Out in Neon

    Give your little black dress a night off and step out in this fashionable ensemble instead. Whether you’re headed to a dinner date, drinks with your girlfriends or a casual cocktail party, this outfit will let you stand out in style.

  • Rory Beca Paradise Blouse

    Do you often reach for black without even thinking when you’re getting ready for a night out? (Hey, we’re guilty, too!) Navy isn’t a dramatic switch, but we love the way this dark blue hue looks with the yellow skinnies. Sheer sleeves and a sheer back panel amp up the sexiness, too. 

  • Miz Mooz Jolyn Flats

    A girl can't be expected to wear heels every night. Slip on a pair of fancy flats—this scaly cobalt blue pair will do!

  • French Connection Scale Scene Clutch Bag

    Add a sparkly accessory to glam up your outfit for nighttime. This beaded clutch can sit pretty on the table during dinner, or when you use the optional chain strap, it'll stay by your side all night.

  • Citizens of Humanity Dylan Cropped Boyfriend Jeans

    If you've been rocking boyfriend jeans like a pro, it might be time to try bigger and better (and more colorful) things. That’s right—colored jeans now come in the boyfriend style. This light yellow pair has the perfect amount of slouch and we can think of so many ways to wear them!

  • Weekend Boyfriend Style

    Have we convinced you to try the pattern mixing trend yet? Let’s refresh: Stripes make a good base and there should be one color that connects the patterns. In this case it doesn’t have to be exact because, unless you wear your scarves around your ankles, the two patterns aren’t close enough on your body to tell. 

  • Express Striped Sweater

    When it comes to colored denim, striped tops are always a good choice. This black-and-white-striped sweater lends itself well to more patterns. You can also wear it with floral skirts or printed skinny jeans this season!

  • MIR Toile Squares Scarf

    We love the mix of colors on this toile scarf. If it gets warmer throughout the day, tie the scarf around the strap of your purse to dress it up!

  • ASOS Manhattan Loafers

    Loafers add casual-cool style to the outfit, plus the shape looks good with your boyfriend jeans. Wear them with a red sundress for another cute weekend ensemble.

  • For Work or For Play

    Clearly this depends on where you work, but we could totally see this outfit being a trendy go-to. When you break it down—colored jeans, a tailored jacket, and pumps—it’s not too complicated. Plus, we just love the infusion of spring colors. 

  • Topshop Boucle Collarless Jacket

    Collarless blazers are a little more casual than normal blazers, but the boucle texture dresses this one up a bit. We love the proper silhouette in pretty mint green! You can also wear it over a white dress this summer.

  • 3.1 Phillip Lim Floral Silk Tank

    A nice floral pattern breaks up the color-blocking created by the boyfriend jeans and jacket in this outfit. You can also pair it with a black mini skirt for a night out this summer!

  • Michael Kors Adrielle Pumps

    Word on the (very chic) street is that white pumps are the new black. We bet with you being the fashion-forward gal that you are, you probably already knew that. This pair fits the bill perfectly, don’t you think?
