Obsession: Colored Denim

Fashion's the word… that would absolutely represent colored denim in the 70s/80s. This trend started to reappear around last year and I was completely appalled by it. I felt that since it was thought of around 30 years ago, that it should stay there. After seeing the trend revolving around me for quite a while, I started to feel warmer towards the idea. I then actually bought a pair of maroon Kill City jeans from Urban Outfitters. Beyond buying the colored pair of jeans that fit me like a glove, I have become obsessed. Since seeing my style widened by this phenomenon, I suggest that everyone give it a chance. This trend has been seen represented by celebrities like Rhiana, Fergie, Ashlee Simpson, and the Jonas Brothers.
WANT TO BUY? Colored denim is sold in an abundant amount of stores. The most obvious retailers that come to mind are Hot Topic and Urban Outfitters.

I love colored denim! Urban Outfitters has a TON! I really want a pair of colored jeans, but I do have a Lux jean skirt in turquoise. It's my favorite!

I am totally feeling the bright denim vibe. I got royal blue skinnies at Urban; am now thinking I need red Rich & Skinny jeans too!

I remember when my mom bought me purple Levi's straight legs in the early 90's. I hated them and would change before I went to school. Of course, I was around 7 years old and didn't want to stand out, given I was already considered a snob to others. (That was an aside..)

Anyhow, I feel bittersweet towards the colored denim trend because I adore color plus denim but hate that it would look odd in anything other than skinnies... which I'm getting terribly bored of.

Love the post again, Cory!

Jennifer, thank you, firstly. Besides that, i felt that way before too, but I started to like them. I also love how you are getting bored with the skinny jeans and going to the wide leg jeans. I saw your post. [:

I love colored denim although I haven't bought any yet.

When I see them on other people I just love them and wish I had a pair.

They instantly set you apart!!
