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?

I reeally love the color of Ashlee’s pants, soo beautiful!! I love color so I definatley like the fact that these girls aren’t afraid of it either. As for colored denim, I think I’ll pass but I do have a bunch of cute colored capri’s for the summer. It’s fun to where black or white with colored bottoms.. good for them :)

I dont know if i could rock such bold cvolors. maybe something a bit more toned done. bluefly has some great burgundy denim that provides a splash of color without blinding you!

This doesn’t seem so very risky — they’re just jeans! Also, I never looked this cute in elementary school. I wouldn’t call this look childish at all. It’s just playful.

I would. Well depending on the color. I like Ashlee’s but red and purple….. um prob not! =) I have grey hudson jeans and they are super cute so I guess I’m keeping up.

I probably would not wear bright jeans… and with the price of denim these days, I’d rather buy a nice pair of faded blue jeans.

i like rachel’s purple ones.
but im not sure if i’d over wear this trend. but who knows?!

Maryse on

Yes, I love the boldness of the pants. I own 3 pairs of stretch colored skinny jeans. I wear boot heels over the pants or regular heels with them (like Ashlee and Fergie). I always pair the outfit with a neutral top, something white or black, I’m not too matchy matchy. I love Rachel’s purple jeans and Ashlee’s blue vibrant jeans.

Hey if you like it and can rock it, go with it gals!

Jennifer, I have a few colored capri’s as well, they are great for Spring and Summer.

Aleksa on

Heck no! Blue, grey, and black are the only acceptable colours.

Laura on
