How To Wear Coloured Jeans (Take Two)

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

If you’ve been reading Little Bird for a little while you might remember this post from last summer, where I explored ways to wear coloured jeans without looking like a 5 year old (tackling the tough issues, as always). Those peachy keen Diesel denims were my first foray into coloured jeans, and since then I’ve amassed quite the collection of eye-popping leg coverers. But these are perhaps my favourites…

Next do the BEST coloured skinny jeans. Ever. They’re the perfect fit with just the right amount of stretch, they come in loads of stylish shades AND they’re only £24. The range comes highly recommended by me if you’re looking to buy in to the trend without spending a fortune/leaving the changing room aghast when a pair of size 12s won’t go over your bum *ahem Topshop ahem*.

But how to wear them? My earlier post saw me team them with crisp whites – great for summer, not so much for mid-January. So this time around, I chose dark grey marl and a heavy jacket in complementary but contrasting colours, along with a colour pop clutch and a bit o’ bling. The jacket was a particularly good charity shop find, while the beautiful antique necklace was kindly sent to me by the lovely ladies at astrid & miyu.

And that’s it – my winter-friendly way to wear coloured jeans. What do you think – are you sold?

PS – My cute flats were sent to me by Sarenza as part of their blogger ambassador programme. They’re currently running a competition to find a new member of the gang – if you’d like to enter you can find all the details here. Good luck!



I love this outfit! I would never have thought of going to Next for coloured jeans. That colour is gorgeous with the clutch bag.


Ive been looking for a nice pair of colour jeans and currently hold a next gift card so i’m sure to check out the different colours 🙂 Thanks for the tip ^_^ By the way your outfit is gorgeous xx


I got a Next voucher for my birthday and have been eyeing up these jeans on the website! I find Next’s jeans sizing can be a bit hit or miss, but I’m hoping I might be able to pick up a pair of these!!x

Butterfly I let go

As already said countless times above – they are a beautiful colour, one of my favourites. I have steered clear of coloured jeans as they seem such a teenage fad but I’m thinking perhaps I should give them a go. I’ll be popping in to Next this weekend 🙂


this colour’s so fab on you, jen! i remember when you came up for next and we had a matching polka dot affair going on with you another blogger! was it kbel? xx


I’m 100% sold on coloured jeans. I bought green ones from next which I like but I find them a bit slack round my hips now. My faves are “Cherry” jeans in turquoise from Oasis. I like teaming them with burnt orange or sap green. I also have dusky pink ones from Dorothy Perkins which I wore with a teal top today. It’s great wearing colour from head to toe.


Love this outfit, you make combinations that would never occur to me and they look great!
I have a pair of deep green New Look skinnies. They make me feel like Peter Pan =) never a bad thing.


Love the clutch. I wish i were brave enough for coloured jeans, unfortunately I have a torso atop two tree trunks. you look lovely. x

I’d really like to get some coloured or printed skinny jeans, but I fear my thunder thighs will just make me look chunky and stumpy. These look lovely on you though! I really love the teal with the magenta.


ooh i keep finding more and more evidence that i need a pair of coloured jeans! love this outfit, especially your jacket. i am very jealous it was a charity shop find and that i cant go get one myself! x
