The colored denim trend has continued to be a part of spring summer trends for the last couple of seasons now, but do we continue to embrace it or is it just now finally being embraced? It’s like anything – some trends take a longer time to resonate with the target consumer. Which may be why denim brands continue to reintroduce it – for the niche customer who has already become loyal and for the on the fence customer who may latch on as well. It’s really all about becoming familiarized with a look or a certain style, unless you’re one who prides themselves on being ahead of the fashion curve.
I see people play it safe with a red-ish or burgundy color, but then there’s all the pastel and bubble gum colored denim that J Brand does so well (pictured above). However, these colors can be a bit riskier to wear. Sometimes, a lighter color is not all that flattering especially if it’s a skinny jean….
So, I pose these questions to you: Colored denim, on the in or out? Will you be wearing colored denim this season or are you tired of the trend and prefer classic washes? Red has been hott, but I personally would go for a pinkish or orangy tone like the Cheap Monday’s I found at The News. If you’re up for the colored denim wave, what colors will you wear this season? Will you take the plunge with pastels or stick to a safer tried-and-true red color?
