Rock it for Fall Fridays: Colored Denim

Who says you can’t bring your favorite colored skinnies with you into fall? If you’re anything like me, then you’ve built a substantial collection of colored denim over the duration of the summer months and probably aren’t ready to give it up. While I usually trade summer brights for muted earthy tones come fall, I’m reconsidering my approach this year and doing my best to extend the life of everything in my summer wardrobe.

For the summer to fall transitional weather, I chose to pair my colored denim with this bright polka dotted cardigan. If this look is too bold for you, you could easily swap out the cardigan for a creme or tan sweater. The peter pan collar tank helps make this outfit feel more “fall” and the cardigan provides added warmth for cooler temperatures. The great thing about colored skinnies is that they already cover your legs, so to transition them into fall and winter all you need are cozy layers.

How will you be rocking your colored denim for fall?

    I love colored denim, so I definitely plan on wearing it throughout the fall and winter. Bright colored pants make those cold gray days much happier!

    I also looked up what a Puffalump doll was. Those little guys are adorable! No wonder they were one of your favorite toys πŸ™‚

    First of all, I’m a sucker for a Peter Pan collar so LOVE THIS! Secondly, you look amazing. Colored denim is one of my favorite trends and I definitely plan on wearing it into fall. I have a bright red pair from J.Crew that I feel like will transition easily, but I also plan on wearing a light peach pair I own–they’re too pretty to be worn only in summer! I love seeing your outfits–you always nail it! xo

    Such a cute, feminine look! I’m in love (especially with the polka dot sweater)!
    I have two pairs of colored denim, so I’m really hoping that it’s a trend that sticks around for a while!

      In my opinion, there is ALWAYS room for another pair of colored denim. I have about 5 pairs and love them all. They’re also a great way to get away with wearing “jeans” to the office πŸ˜‰
