The Find: Colored Denim for Spring

This is the time of year when I start re-evaluating my wardrobe.  Which of the pieces that I bought last spring/summer, will I want to wear again this year?  Which pieces can I add to my wardrobe to make those pieces go further?

Colored jeans are a great way to extend the life of your casual pieces.  They add a little bit of life to basic separates.  And they dress up your weekend, casual Friday, and travel looks.

These high-waisted sateen Rockstar Skinny Jeans from Old Navy are some of my favorites.  I like the sateen because it’s a bit more comfortable than the denim. They also come in a mid-rise.

This mauve color is fantastic.  They also have several other desert-sunset Earth tones.

Prefer traditional denim?  Old Navy offers a variety of rises and colors.  They also have distressed styles.  And, as always, Old Navy offers tall and petite sizes, as well as plus-size pieces.

    Yes to Spring wardrobe refresh! I just sent out a ThredUp Clean Out bag full of things that just didn’t work, shoes I literally have NEVER worn and accessories that sounded good at the time…and then just weren’t right for me. Always a good lesson in trends not to jump on for the next time.

    I love a good cobalt jean, but haven’t seen a pair in brands that are flattering for me in a few years. Might have to go on the hunt!

    Hi Abra,

    Long time blog reader here.

    I just wanted to recommend a
    Fantastic Find—Suitably. I found it on social media and ordered the starter kit.
    The clothing fit perfectly and the stylists were very helpful with sizing. I wish it had been around when I started out ten years ago.

    Thanks for all your advice over the years,

    I feel like colored jeans were huge maybe 10 years ago and then kind of fell to the wayside… but they were in crayon-bright shades back then. These shades are way more pleasing to the eye!
