Colored Denim

Spring is just around the corner.  I know it’s only February, but it is never too early to start thinking of the one or two additions you can add to your wardrobe for spring! 
The trend I have noticed everywhere, from Target to the pages of InStyle is colored denim.   Blue, green, orange, pink, pastel, bold, jewel.  It is everywhere!  Mostly in the skinny jean variety, don’t let that scare you!  Skinny jean is a type of jean, not a requirement for wearing the style!  Skinny jeans can look fabulous on any body type, paired with the right top. 
If you think you can’t wear a pair of skinny jeans, think again!  Go try on a pair!  Now!  Stop reading and go anywhere and try them on!  If you feel a little self-conscious, pair with a longer tank layered with a sweater and maybe a skinny belt.  Of course, boots with a heel or a pair of strappy sandals help to elongate you a little also. 
If you really think you can’t rock a skinny jean, look for a new Gap line of the bright colored khaki in a boyfriend cut.  Boyfriend just means a little looser and baggier and usually cuffed at the bottom.  I love my boyfriend jeans and am soooo looking forward to seeing the new Gap line.  I plan to wear the heck out of the orange!
Don’t be afraid of the color.  Even if you have a closet full of muted tones, step out of your comfort zone and go for color!  You can always tone down the color with something a little more tame on top.  Your assignment this week is to try on a pair of skinny jeans in one of the fun, spring colors!  You can do it!  Be fearless!
