Would You Wear Colored Denim?

04/11/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Just when we thought we were safe from tough-to-wear denim trends (we love swapping out our skinny jeans for wide-leg), a new trend rears its risky head. Stars like Ashlee Simpson, Fergie and Rachel Bilson have all been sporting rainbrow bright denim in shades of electric blue, red and purple — and they aren’t the only ones. We think we’ll sit this one out, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Will you wear colored jeans?

Yeah why not!?Still I like the purple ones the best maybe because they get the closest to the blue denim.I was crazy about bright colors but as I get older I think they are just not appropriate anymore.

I am in love with Ashlee & Rachael’s jeans. Where can I get them?

I actually have a pair of red skinny jeans and they look fabulous. My girlfriends are split on whether or not they are ‘right’ but I think they are HOTTTT!!!! A little risk never hurt anyone.

absolutely positively not. we’re not 10 anymore. and unless you are 10, they look hideous. on everyone! and on the same note, the skinny jean looks terrible on everybody also over the age of 10 who has since grown hips and a butt. even the skinniest of women look terrible in them. same goes for leggings! but i digress… we should really all live by the rule: if you lived through the trend the first time, you shouldn’t take part it in the second time around.

What’s next?….The rainbow colored rebooks? I mean really…..let it go, people!!! I definately won’t be wearing this trend!!!!

AL on

i love it how they call them “skinny” jeans…not that long ago they were called tapered leg jeans and they were awful and still are! just because they’re called something else doesn’t make them great…

Meg on

NO!!!!!!!!! those should be burned!!!

C on

I completely agree with Dawn & Amber. This is one trend in which I will NOT be partaking.

I wore colored jeans in elementary school. I mean, green, purple, red, you name it. I look back at the photos and wonder, “What was I thinking?” This is one trend I doubt I’ll revisit. Is everyone going to start wearing Girbauds again?
