Wearing Color Jeans Can Make You Feel Young at Heart

Quote of the day: “Life is to be lived.  If you have to support yourself you bloody well better find a way that is going to be interesting.” Katherine Hepburn

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

Now here’s a way to feel young at heart…wear color, bright, bright colors and wear them all over. Or does the thought of wearing a bright colored jeans make you break out in a sweat? Or maybe you’ve been told that bright colors worn on the bottom half of your body will make your butt look fat.

I’m here to show you that we need to change our perspective and look forward to wearing fun & vibrant color jeans!  All of these jeans from Fabrizio-Gianni are the cotton twill stretch slim-fit jeans, but don’t let the name fool you….they are perfect for an older woman’s body with a mid rise waistband (so you don’t get the muffin top).  Today’s motif is wearing them for a casual day.

70’s Colored Jeans: Mom’s pick was the color Tiffany…a wonderful mintish green. And, of course, we paired it with an owl sweatshirt!!

I know wearing jeans is the go-to for most younger women when they are out for a casual outing. And blue jeans certainly are everywhere. But I think finding a pair of jeans in a fun color could make your feel young at heart!

My take on these jeans: I really love the color & that they are lightweight.  I will shorten them about 2 inches (they don’t come in petites).  However, I was bummed that after washing, that they were quite wrinkly!

    Colorful, well-fitting slim jeans are a total win. I think I’d have to get every color. Love all the outfits, but yours, with the darling red fringed poncho, is my favorite. Just got a pair of dark turquoise jeans. Can’t wait to wear. I’m seeing leopard with them, among many options.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You are such the fabulous dresser Kathleen!! I absolutely love that you are so open to these different styles! Heck—I wasn’t even sure about colored jeans until a couple years ago, and I know both mom & Nancy weren’t so excited about them. But it’s funny how after wearing them, they seem so normal!!
      Dark turquoise sounds divine!!

  • I think I should get a red pair again. Thanks for linking up to top of the World Style

    • Thanks for the kind words Rachel!! Have a great weekend!!

  • Anna Parkes

    Hi Jodie, I love all these colourful jeans and I so also love the fact that you paired yours up with the cape/poncho. I’ve recently bought a lovely cosy cape for the winter months and even though we are still enjoying the last throes of summer, I can’t wait to get my cape on too. It’s such a great idea of yours to feature the different ages wearing the same trends – you must have a huge following thans to theis brilliant idea!

    • Thanks for the wonderful words Anna!! I’ll actually be doing a series on ponchos in December…hope you stick around for it!!

  • I think colored pants are so fun! I love how you show that any age, color can be worn. It’s all in the fit and style. Great post.
    Thanks for joining our Tuesday Fashion Party Link-Up!

    • Thanks Katey…it’s funny because 3 years ago, I’m not sure I would’ve worn them…but I love the pop of color now!!

  • As a lover of color, colored jeans are a must for me. I have similar colors to all three of these. Alas, I really need to lose this stupid gain, so I can fit back into them. Love AL three outfits today, no favorites, lol

    • Weight can be so frustrating…I wish we could just press the freeze button, and not have to worry/think about it! Thanks for your lovely comment!!

    I love the bright colors. I am glad you have more budget friendly options rather than just Fabrizio-Gianni. $$$ Jodie I love the poncho. Did you make it? I am seriously thinking about knitting a poncho and love the look of your bright red. If you did make, please share the pattern. You look so cozy wearing it.

    • I didn’t knit this poncho (I got this one at the thrift store for $5—I couldn’t get the yarn for anywhere near that!!). But I did knit one last year…I’ll try to showcase it later this year—-I can’t really share the pattern because it was actually a sweater that didn’t turn out, so I redesigned it as a poncho (really, it’s more of a cape). Do you check out ravelry for knitting? That’s where I get so many patterns lately (even though I have quite the collection of books and magazines).

      • MaryAnne

        Ravelry is a great resource. Used many times.

          PS What a thrift shop find. Great find!
