Take a gander at our favorite colored jeans and tips on how to wear them.

Wax On

Coated denim is everywhere this season. These jeans have a coating created from pigment, acrylic or polyurethane. This gives the denim a waxy texture and a shine similar to leather. Revolve Clothing’s CURRENT/ELLIOTT leggings in coated pine is a great representation of why we’re enamored with the trend. Create complementary texture with a body hugging angora sweater or a svelte edgy look with a tailored blazer.

Colored Jeans Detail 3Heavy Metal

Metallic denim is a snazzy alternative to your little black dress. This season’s must-have will take you from day to night with a simple shirt change. Try the mid-rise metallic jean denim leggings from Rag & Bone or the iridescent Halle jeans in pewter from True Religion. Pair them with a chunky bib necklace and sparkly bangles.



Colored Jean Detail 2Saucy Saffron

Saffron skinnys give us fashion-induced heart palpitations. The toothpick ankle jean in golden sunflower from J. Crew sets our brain aflutter with visions of schoolboy blazers and distressed leather riding boots. You can’t go wrong with this feel-good color in your closet.

Colored Jean Detail 1Oxblood Impetus

Darkly romantic oxblood is the irrefutable color of the season. The deep burgundy crusade has arisen in every form – coats, dresses, boots, accessories – but the easiest way to join the party is via your denim. Find your off-the-runway look with the Prism Pipe skinny jeans in oxblood from All Saints. Complete the look with a billowy winter white blouse and black motorcycle boots.

Basic Blues

If you opt for more conservative attire, and can’t emotionally wrap yourself around the bold hues and textures, there’s nothing wrong with sticking with your basic blues. We’re in love with the sexy silhouette of the cigarette pant, which you can find in a pair of ankle length jeans. Try the Skyline Ankle Peg Jeans from Paige Denim. With a crisp white tailored shirt, basic flats and your grandmother’s pearls, comfort is sure to meet style.

Cheryl Says

After Christmas sales are a great opportunity to find investment denim at a fraction of the cost.
