Making Your Color Jeans Part of a Smart Outfit

Quote of the day: “The most essential factor is persistence-the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.” James Whitcomb Riley

We were gifted these jeans from Fabrizio-Gianni, but I was not paid to write this post. Mom reviewed her pair at the bottom of the post.

The final look at these same colored jeans that we wore for a casual day and dressy date is one you could wear to an appointment. I’d consider this a smart outfit because it’s like business wear for the retired folks! You can be a little more relaxed than many office looks, yet you still look respectful and intelligent.

This last look of the three of us wearing these jeans together shows how versatile these color jeans are.  One of the nice things about the Fabrizio-Gianni brand is it’s made in the US and each dyed individually for a one of a kind look. Thus the slightly larger price tag than some of you may be accustomed; I know it is for me.

50’s Colored Jeans: This jacket was made by a Denver designer Brooks Luby!  It’s a tapestry material which I love because it’s so unique!! She usually designs mother of the bride dresses so check out her website here!

60’s Colored Jeans: If you wear the same colored shirt as your jeans, it could theoretically look like a jumpsuit. Or some call it a slimming column of color! Either way, it’s not a bad thing!

70’s Colored Jeans: So I added in the burgundy brown shoes, belt & darker earrings to make the outfit not as “blue happy.”  Do you think it was a good choice?

Even going out to your multitude of appointments can be the perfect time to wear your color jeans! There are casual enough to be comfortable, yet show off great personality!

Mom’s (70’s model) take on the jeans: Mom has worn them quite a bit and absolutely loves them!  She shortened her pair already, but didn’t feel like they wrinkled much during wearing.  She said someone described them “as a breath of spring.” Isn’t that cute?

Here’s some more colored jeans. These are more subtle for those of you averse to bright colors on the bottom half of your body:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    The brown touches on Charlotte’s outfit are a perfect choice.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kathleen! Otherwise it was seeming too blue to me!!

  • I love these classic, casually elegant styles!
    Red Reticule

  • Your bracelet is lovely. I love unique things and so I liked it a lot. The yellow jeans are lovely too, and I would definitely wear something like that, especially with a navy top. The 70’s look was actually my favorite here because I really like the way different shades of the same color can be paired together to create a unique look but one that really goes together without being so matchy matchy. Personally, I probably would have continue that theme by pairing the outfit with more shades of blue and gone with navy rather than burgandy to tone down the ‘happy-ness’, but there again, I like happy so I might have actually made it even more so. haha.

    • Oooh…I never thought of adding in navy…I bet that would look great (because in my mind, it’s almost a black). 🙂

  • Love all the bright colours. Such a nice change from the usual darker colours associated with Fall.


  • sandypatti

    Love all of these – it’s great to change up from the usual denim washes. Thanks for linking up!

  • This has been a great series, Jodie.
    I think these three are my favourites…I love how different our versions of the English language are, and the fact we are thousands of miles away from each other. We should be poles apart, yet colour and style transcends all boundaries.

    • How very eloquent Samantha!! We always say how small the world has become since we can get & see things from other places so easily! Have a great Sunday!!

  • I really enjoyed this series! 🙂

  • A great finish to the colored jeans posts. I love Nancy’s “faux jumpsuit look, great jacket!

    • Thanks Tracey!! Nancy loves her red jeans and even wore them to play bridge yesterday!!!

  • dan

    Beautiful tapestry jacket! I have just seen your previous look with the same yellow jeans… they go well with both the cardigan and today’s jacket…lovely bracelet!
