One of the common themes in the emails I receive from School Gate Style fans is what to wear with coloured jeans. They are a great spring/summer trend and can really brighten up your wardrobe but so many people are unsure about how to wear them. So I worked up a few photos myself wearing red French Connection jeans…
But my wardrobe is limited so I decided to ask my wonderful blog followers for their styling ideas – and I had a great response. I’m kicking off with my gorgeous niece Lilias in her neon jeans from Du Pareil which she wears so well with navy. And how cute are those Boden pumps!
Next we have Sue in her purple jeggings from M&S. At only £22.50, they are an inexpensive way to try out the coloured jeans look and they look lovely with her suede ankle boots. In the middle, Riona is wearing white Diesel jeans with a striped top & on the right, Morgan is wearing some fab True Religion turquoise jeans with a checked top - both of these jeans are from Clockwork Orange (online and in-store).
Next it’s Anna, Suzanne & Holly. Anna’s jeans are from Asda and her floral tunic from Red Herring. Suzanne & Holly have both gone with grey – another great way to offset the colour on the lower half of your body.
Continuing the floral theme, Ashleigh’s styled her purple jeans for daytime and a night out. Get the right floral design and your coloured jeans really come to life..
Next we have some colour blocking – Rebecca’s petal detail top is from Primark and cost just £2 (a steal!). Lesley’s bright blue is brilliant with red jeans and check out those gorgeous wedges. Wendy’s gone with a print t-shirt which picks up the colour of her jeans perfectly and brings the outfit together.
Cheryl (above) is proof that you can still wear coloured skinnies if you’re petite. She makes the most of her 5′ frame by wearing wedge trainers and keeping her top half neutral. What a lovely shade of green and another fab scarf.
Lots of lovely shoe choices with all the coloured jeans here – I particularly like these jewelled pumps as worn by Amy from YummyStepMummy with her cobalt blue jeans.
Below left, it’s another twin mummy, Alison, with her favourite jeans – M&Co green jeans for just £25. A great fit, not too skinny with a decent high waist. And finally, Claire, blogger over at Belfast Mummy, is rocking her M&S Orange jeggings with some animal print.
Thank you to all my contributors – you are brilliant for going to the trouble of taking pictures and sending them to me. I’ve done a random draw of names and the winner of their choice of necklace from the Room31 collection is…Suzanne! Email me with your address and choice of necklace Suzanne. The address is [email protected]
Would LOVE to do this again – any suggestions of what the next ‘Styled by You’ could cover?
