Recently I heard a woman say “I can’t wear coloured denim, I’m too big.” This was such a false statement. First of all she wasn’t big, and second of all it’s all about the styling.
It’s no secret that I’m not a size 2. I’ve got a booty and ample thighs but that doesn’t mean I’m going to miss out on the coloured denim trend. While I probably won’t be rocking a pastel pair of skinnies with a mid-drift bearing top, I have found ways that work for me.
Not only is Coloured denim hot this season, but colour with colour is being shown everywhere. For those a bit more fearful of this idea I suggest a single colour in multiple shades. Here I paired my teal jeans with a navy, floral print chiffon cardi. To play off the bit of green in the print I partnered the look with a green structured bag.
Jeans: Fidelity Denim’s “Stevie“, Chiffon Cardi: Forever 21, Bag: Co-Lab, Shoes: Nine West, Sunnies: Le Chateau
Here I’ve taken the same teal jeans and gone full throttle with colour. It’s the same idea as the previous look with a floral print cardi, but this bright orange silk Winter Kate piece intesifies the look.

I should also mention that as important as the styling is, fit is also key. These Fidelity Stevie’s are a perfect fit for me; higher in the rise and a fuller cut in the hip, bum, and thigh. Love them! So Ladies, don’t be afraid of the trends of this season. Weather you decide you add a little or add a lot of colour to your outfit, make it work for you.
