Are you game enough to wear green jeans?

Nikki Parkinson Life 42 Comments

I don’t know what’s come over me this season. Black has been banished to the back of my wardrobe. If it’s not colour, it’s not on.

And when I’m out shopping with clients, the same thing is happening to them. It’s like we’re all under a retail spell, looking for new and exciting ways to show our more “colourful” personalities.

Where once I would have contented myself with a red pair of shoes or an orange scarf, I’m now looking to combine whole blocks of colour. With minimal restraint being exercised.

Just yesterday I wore yellow, orange, red and turquoise. In the one outfit.  Granted it was Melbourne Cup but the former beige self would have opted for a splash of colour worked back with black.

Next on my fashion radar? Coloured jeans.

Would you, could you do green jeans? These ones are from Sussan

Want to know how to wear coloured jeans and not look like a traffic light?  I’m over at Justb. today doing a Wardrobe Rescue for a reader who’s currently planning her wedding. Come over and say hi.

  1. I went green! and I love them …. have acquired the nickname ‘frogslegs’ though, lol. Match them up with your favourite denim peices to feel like you havn’t gone too far out of your comfort zone. relax and have fun 🙂

  2. I remember hearing once that if you wore something the first time round you shouldn’t wear it the second time round – and I wore red jeans in the 80’s – does that rule still apply?

  3. I’m loving the colour this season almost as much as your blogs which are not only inspiring but often provide a trip down memory lane as well. This post made me think of best friend during high school in the 80s and my jealousy of her jeans drawer. It was filled with jeans of every colour while I had only two pairs and I wasn’t allowed to wear my “best pair” skating on a friday night in case i ripped them!!!

  4. I’m such a wuss when it comes to fashion and colour. I LOVE the idea of a pair of coloured jeans and have been secretly admiring a pair of hot pink ones for some time now. My biggest fear? Getting it all so very, very wrong. Heading over the justb immediately.

  5. How about blue? I could do blue, but green might be a bit too far from black for me! I went into my local sass +. Bide store this week just to admire all the color. It’s like a kids crayon drawing in there!

  6. Hmmm… I’m not convinced me and my thunder thighs can pull off anything but a dark denim. But I do LOVE colour in my wardrobe so I’ll keep an open mind next time I’m shopping and just maybe those coloured jeans will make it as far as the change room.

      I like that you have an open mind about it. I haven’t gone there myself yet but I’m seriously contemplating it. If you’re not loving it in the change room though, don’t buy. You definitely won’t love when you get home!

  7. I saw these the other day and they are quite fabulous! I’ve been a colour girl my whole life so it’s so great to be able to go shopping and embrace “me” so easily!

  8. HI Nikki. I have a pair of bright cobalt blue jeans – in fact I have two pairs; one from J Brand $$$ which are really bright and I always get comments when I wear them and my other pair are not quite so startling but still go “pop” they were a birthday present from my 10 year old daughter who chose them herself from Mink Pink$. Big price difference between the two but I have to admit the cheaper ones are more comfortable! Have a good day.

  9. Love the look on others but can’t go there! Maybe it’s because I still have red ones in the back of my wardrobe from last time around, and you know what they say ” if you wore it the first time…” 😉

  11. LOVE my green jeans – bought them from Zara. I couldn’t agree more, I was a definite black basics with splashes of colour, not now.
