If you haven’t bought a pair of bright jeans yet, then these photos may inspire you. Take a look at how my readers have embraced this trend in this week’s What I Wore.
Fashion blogger Morgann who blogs at Glitter in the Grey, adores a good t-shirt and jeans but wanted to punch things up so she decided to go bright and cheery. Her cropped yellow skinnies paired with a scarf tee from Cabi give her a fresh, and fun look. Lemon zest yellow and gray is a winning combination this season.
Etiquette Expert Lisa wanted an edge to her casual dressing, so she bought a pair of hot red skinny jeans and paired them up with a buttery leather jacket and sexy heels. The neutral brown color cools down the red jeans just enough, but doesn’t put out the fire. This outfit is still hot!
Pamela, 49, from California looks royal in a cobalt blue pair of jeans that she has paired with a black GAP cashmere top.
Take a Chance
Nazreen wrote to tell me she was originally hesitant to embrace this trend because she is 50. But after reading my posts about wearing colored jeans at 40+ and the right colored denim for your body type, she decided to jump right in.
She bought a pair of red jeans and she boy, is she rocking them! Nazreen, says she loves them so much she’s going to buy more for fall. Bravo for taking that big style leap Nazreen!

Judy has also jumped on the colored jean bandwagon, pairing her yellow jeans with a leopard print top. Hoop earrings work well with the exotic feel of this playful outfit.
Moto style jeans have zippers, or leather panels, or quilting which gives them texture and dimension. They typically come in black but style blogger Adrienne from The Rich Life on a Budget found a pair of hot red ones. Cool Urban vibe, Adrienne.

Color = Youth
Whenever I’m asked how over 40 gals can shave a few years off our appearance, I always answer with one word “color”. Color flatters. Just take a look at 46- year- old CABi consultant Michelle (left) Michelle told me that she tries to incorporate color into her daily style.
In the middle is Marlo, a 45-year-old Hawaii native who, prefers sporty, casual attire, especially colored denim .
Joey ( right) likes to layer a sporty pink t-shirt with a lace camisole to create a color block effect that offsets her jeans. You all look fab ladies!
