Wearing Color Jeans Yet Still Getting Glammed Up

We were gifted these jeans from Fabrizio-Gianni, but I was not paid to write this post. Nancy reviewed her pair at the bottom of this post.
The colored jeans trend is certainly more evident in the warmer months than in the fall & winter, but I’d love to change that concept. I feel like the winter times are exactly when we need to dress in colors. Don’t you think it elevates your mood? Call me crazy, but we all know there is a psychological component to color (see my post on the experiment for you to try here)!
To give you a little insight about these jeans, they are a nice lightweight cotton with a good amount of spandex. This means, they won’t stretch out (too much) after a couple hours and be saggy in the rear. I’m showing the same colored jeans you saw in the former post for an informal day (here), dressed up differently so you could wear them for a fancier event!
50’s Colored Jeans: My pearl earrings were a present when I turned 16. They were taken off my mom’s wedding dress and made into extensions for my pearl studs.
60’s Colored Jeans: I think layering your necklaces is a wonderful way to add some pop to your shirts! For this example, we went with a short gold necklace, a longer pearl necklace & then a very long gold & pearl necklace to try to tie them all together.

70’s Colored Jeans: Mom’s “necklace” is actually a belt that she’s had for years! It’s a great way to add sparkle to her ensemble.
I realize that most of us don’t think about jeans when we get dressed up. But I think we’ve shown how you can do it and still look nice! Add sparkles, bling and heels, and you’re good to go!
Here’s Nancy’s (60+ model) take on her jeans. She was happily surprised that the jeans fits so well. Since her measurements didn’t match perfectly with the online sizing guide, she was concerned about the fit. I’m sure it’s helpful that the jeans have spandex in them!! She loves the color but did find she needed to iron them after washing.
Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.
