As a pear-shaped 30 year old woman, I have learned to draw the eye to the upper part of my body, and try to balance everything out with my clothes. Unfortunately, colored skinny jeans do neither of these things. And similar to the gaucho pants, the colored skin-tight jeans only accentuate Thunder Thigh Thelma that I can otherwise hide with not so tight/flashy pants.
Confession: I actually purchased a pair of salmon colored jeans and put them on for my husband. He laughed really hard, and it made me realize I looked like a fat version of Stephanie Tanner from Full House.
However, I have decided that in the right color and on the right body shape, colored jeans are actually cute. They seem to look best on athletic/rectangle bodies and hour glass bodies.
Wow! I feel as if I've given in now! Maybe a professional stylist will dress me some day and find THE perfect colored skinnies for me, but I'm not holding my breath.
So now that I've FINALLY given in to this trend, I am trying to decided what I think of printed jeans, which are going to be everywhere this fall.
Sure they look cute on all of these girls, but what wouldn't look great on them? My body, as well as most people's bodies, are very different than what's in these pictures. I guess I'll know how I feel about them more this fall after doing a little people watching at the mall. ;)
So what do y'all think? Do you love either of these trends? Hate them? Or could you care less?
