Coloured jeans styled your way

I LOVE how so many Styling You readers embraced the idea of wearing coloured jeans this spring.

Last week’s post about how to wear coloured jeans drew a huge readership and reaction.

I also called out for readers to send in photos of themselves in coloured jeans and I’m excited to start sharing those photos with you here today … coloured jeans styled your way.

For me this is the ultimate in helping other women imagine themselves in a fashion trend.

The more we get a look at everyday people wearing a trend, the more we can better imagine ourselves embracing the trend.

So, without further ado … here are some very lovely ladies rocking the coloured jeans trend.

PS. It’s not too late to email me ([email protected]) your photo. I’ll keep adding the photos to this post. If I missed your photo on Instagram, please leave me a link in the comments below!

    Hi Nikki, great post, I love Melissa from Sugarcoatit’s outfits especially photo number 18. I tried to find Melissa’s blog as I wanted to ask her where she got the green jeans from. Can you let me know her blog address? Thank you

    • Thanks Leisa … if you click on the caption under Melissa’s photo it’s a link back to her blog.

      • Leisa Flanigan

        Thank you Nikki

    • Hi Leisa, thank you! The bright green are from BigW {post coming up this week – I rolled them up} and the teal green are from Autograph. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Leisa Flanigan

    Can I just say, Melissa from Sugarcoatit has the most amazingly beautiful eyes.
    Now, back to the jeans.
    You all look awesome and I think I am ready to jump into this trend!!
    Thanks all you brave ladies.

    Hi Nikki I picked up some lovely blue jeans at Kmart thanks to your coloured jeans post the other day, I love them. Just go up a size as they are skinny jeans.

  • Love coloured jeans! I really should buy some .. instead of wearing black every single day for the past few weeks.

  • Luci

    Oh I love the combining patterns with coloured jeans! I actually hadn’t thought of that…

  • Pippa J

    who would have thought coloured jeans would ever come back? remember the days of the high-waisted mustard and bottle green ones with pleats in the front? those could even work now if doing the whole vintage look! must say I prefer the pastel coloured jeans trend though 🙂

    • I didn’t have ones with pleats but I did have lemon yellow and bright red back in 1982!

    • I had purple jeans that I teamed with body suits, a thick black belt and Doc Martins.

  • Whoo! So exciting! I have a Spearmint pair arriving from Country Road this week so when I get those I’ll send you a pic of that too! 🙂

  • Julie

    You all look great ladies! Thanks for the styling inspiration – finally a way to wear my old DJ with jeans!! xx


  • Supers (Yen)

    More photos please! I love seeing real style photos.
    I was practising a bit of colour blocking in my photos that are up there. I actually wore the cobalt cardi and coral/pinky jeans out to a farmer’s market on the weekend and my girlfriend commented that she loved that I was so bright – made me easy to spot in a crowd!

    • More coming up very soon. As they arrive I’ll be adding them to the gallery. And yes, we are very spot-able when wearing our jeans. Thanks for sending your photos!

  • Emily @ The Beetle Shack

    ehehehiiieeeeee oh so awesome!

  • I think the question is how many pairs of coloured jeans is too many ? I have red (from Virtu), Blue (from Big W) and Teal (from Autograph). I have been eying off a pink pair as well.

    • Hahaha Jayne … at the moment … I’m thinking you can’t have too many! I’ve got red, cobalt blue, teal, navy and orange … definitely an opening for aqua I think!

  • Nicole

    This is a test

  • Lisa Mckenzie
