Put Your ‘Bright’ Foot Forward: Our ModStylists Show You How to Style Colored Denim

Looking to add a daring dose of color to all your ensembles this holiday season? Inspired by the many requests from our customers on the ModStylists Facebook page, our ModStylists are here to show you how to style colored denim! Whether you’re traveling home for Turkey Day or planning to host your own holiday feast, brightly-hued jeans are the perfect way to add pizzazz to an outfit, while still staying stylishly casual.

SAY ‘YELLOW’ – “I paired the Fruit and Far Between Jeans in Banana with blue socks to play up the contrast between the two hues,” says ModStylist Jess. “I love how colored denim creates an effortlessly cool look when paired with layers like socks, slouchy cardigans, and crazy boots!”

Jess wears the:
Up to Dot Cardigan
Strong as an Oxford Top
Follow My Lead Necklace
Cocoa to Go Boot
Dots Daily Socks in Blue
A Lovely Thyme Bag

PUMPKIN IT UP –  “A burnt orange pair of skinnies, like the Fruit and Far Between Jeans in Pumpkin, are the perfect color for fall!” says ModStylist Chelsey. “I’m loving the mix of polka dots and stripes, topped off with tapestry heels and geometric earrings.”

Chelsey wears the:
Speckled Splendor Top
Strata Great Time Sweater
Just Like Honey Heel in Bouquet
Bedrock of Beauty Ring
Find Your Groove Earrings

BETTER RED – “For a look that’s professional, but still packs a punch, try pairing the Ruby Zipper Pants with your favorite bold piece,” says ModStylist Amy. “Be a floral top or a statement necklace, remember to have fun with your look!”

Amy wears the: 
Floral Seasons Top
Twist Like This Sweater
Impossible to Under-stud Bag
What Do You Link? Necklace
Along the Cutting Edge Heel

    I’m still too nervous to wear colored jeans! I feel like they’d be very “loud”. But I love the tips, Mod!

    I recently bought a pair of red ankle jeans and I am still discovering new ways to wear them. I was really surprised to see how my regular ensembles have changed because of them, it really adds a special touch to it. Love the combinations here, I have only been playing with colour coding so far, haven’t tried different patterns yet.
