Busting out the bright and bold

The recent hot and sunny weather means it’s time to bust out the bright and bold colours. Coloured denim has become a very popular trend and it’s hard to ignore the bursts of colours that people are wearing around campus. No colour is excluded from this trend; they range from neons to pastel and primary colours. Bright coloured jeans may not be everyone’s taste, so consider a pastel coloured hue if you’d prefer not to turn quite so many heads as you pass.

Style options

For a casual look you can wear to class, pair your colourful skinnies with white tee and a jean jacket. For a dressier look, try wearing them with a blazer and wedges. Another fun option is colour blocking your denim with bold stripes, or similar contrasting colours and a colourful pair of pumps. Don’t be shy about your colored denim. This is a bold statement, but it’s also just a new pair of pants as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans.

Where to get them?

The best places to look for affordable coloured denim are H&M and Forever21. My favourite pick is the denim brand called Bleulab. This brand offers coloured denim that is reversible, so you get two shades in one. You get a brighter colour on one side, and then the darker version of that colour on the other side. They’re a bit pricey, but it’s worth the splurge because you’re getting two pairs of jeans in one.

What is great about this trend is that the pants are as comfortable and casual like a regular pair of denim blue jeans, but with their own unique spin. This is not just a spring trend, so don’t be afraid to rock them all summer.
