Colored Denim

The world's favorite fabric is denim. There's nothing like a pair of denim bottoms or any kind of denim garments. Some even have denim furniture. Good old blue denim is the way to go. However, what about denim of a different color? Why just traditional colors? Why not any trendy colors? Why not hot pink jeans, red jeans, aqua blue jeans, mint green jeans, or any exciting denim colors? This blog post is about various colorful denim. If you think basic denim colors are boring, perhaps this blog post will showcase some more interesting colors of denim. As part of the discussion, I will also discuss white denim as part of the discussion.


LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S):

--- Colored Denim at a Glance ---

You can't go one day without seeing someone wearing blue jeans. Regardless of wash or style, there's nothing like good denim garments.

The most common colors for denim are these:
• (any blue denim, regardless of wash)
• beige denim
• white denim
• black denim
• dark green denim (not as common)
• burgundy denim (not as common)

Some of these colors are fairly common when seeing denim. Sometimes, you will see some designers try out boldly-colored denim. Ever seen a pair of yellow jeans? Hot pink jeans? If not... you will in this blog post!

The reason why I think colored denim is becoming so popular is because it is a fresh take on denim. Going with bold and unusual colors for denim is just a fresh take and a unique twist on denim. It's still your favorite denim- just colored. Colored denim provides expressive and fun style. Especially with some of the most trendy colors, colored denim makes a serious statement.

Colored denim in this blog post mostly pertains to feminine denim, but there is also colored denim for us males. The post mostly features colored denim for females. So I hope you enjoy this one.



--- Colored Denim: White Denim ---

This post was supposed to be about just white jeans. Then again, I don't make anything if I can't contribute a multitude of information for all of you. So let's talk white jeans.

White jeans are every bit as wearable as your average blue jeans. White jeans can be lovely for women, but white denim is also stylish for men. I am most fond of bootcut and flare white jeans for women. White bootcut and flare jeans can be beautiful. Their sophistication can make it like you can get away with wearing jeans to (at least) semi-formal outings as well as night on the town. Many females are enamored with skinny jeans, and white skinny jeans are no different.


What to Wear With White Denim?

In my view, there are a few different items to go with white jeans. Don't ask me for men's advice with white jeans because I'm not fond of or know of white jeans for men. I do think that a cute yellow blouse or shirt usually goes well with white jeans. A light brown belt with white jeans is always a nice accessory to dress up white jeans.

Bootcut and flare white jeans are stylish to me than white skinny jeans. They are also more versatile as you could dress them down for a day at the mall or school, or find some chic sandals or pumps for a night out. A basic five-pocket pair of jeans is plenty stylish. An even better pair would be some flap pocket white jeans.

What about white jean skirts? White jean shorts? White capri jeans? Just about the same recommendations for each, just that each are different in making them stylish.

--- Colored Jeans: Final Thoughts ---

If you want to make a statement, say it with denim. If you want to make a fashion statement, say it with colored denim. Denim doesn't have to be boring old blue. If you want to stand out, try going with some unusually-colored denim. You never know what kind of power colored denim can provide for both you and your outfit. Bright-colored denim can seriously make plenty of noise. Colored denim is both youthful and expressive. You are still enjoying wearing denim jeans but with something more colorful and expressive. Rock your denim, but especially rock your colored denim if these appeal to you. Now go look fabulous!

I made special emphasis on white denim since they are perhaps the most popular non-blue denim. White jeans can be just as expressive and fun, unless you believe in the rules of "no white before Memorial Day" or "no white after Labor Day" rules. Wearing white denim is a bit tricky. However, white denim is its own style statement outside of any non-blue, non-colored denim. Proudly wear your white denim if you are fond of white denim.
