EBEW: Red Jeans, About Which I Changed My Mind

I wrote not too long ago that colored jeans were not my cup of coffee. Well, I was wrong. Times change, old girl, I said as I eyeballed these Liz Claiborne jeans at the Molly Mutt Thrift Store. Colored jeans are a welcome change, a wake-up call for the eyes, from my medium and dark wash denim.

Why not wear colored jeans in our 50’s? And any 30-something could wish to look as great as Terri of Rags Against the Machine her bright greens today!

This is a non-office look, of course, but perfect for the movies with my husband, lunch with my sister, or a nice long afternoon thrifting. The shirt is a summery weight floral and the shoes more autumn-ish, so I am doing a seasonal transition today.

Pants: Liz Claiborne, Blouse: Lucky Brand, Booties: Clarks

Now head over to Everybody, Everywear and feast on all the gorgeous colored pants. Have a colorful, happy day.

  1. I adore colored jeans!  Orange, yellow, red… bring on the color, and I am nearing age 60.  

  2. you look gorgeous, I'm changing my mind about colored jeans too, I always think I won't be able to carry a pair of red jeans, you and Tammy look so good. I've to start looking for one.


  3. I like this — it looks almost cowgirlish … to me, anyway. 🙂 And I agree — Terri's pants and picture were to die for. I can see why her hubby loved them.

  4. Oh, the blouse is beautiful with the jeans.  I know that the first few times I wore colored jeans, I was VERY self-conscious in them.  But the more you walk around in the world without creating too many loud, rude comments, you gradually learn that it's okay!

  5. Well, I can say my husband liked it very much  : >   Thanks for coming by, Angie!

  6. I am so glad you found some. These look great on you. They make your legs look so long and slim! Love the top too.
    I am wanting some burnt orange jeans, but likely will never find them unless I lose 50 lbs!

  7. You are very right about Miss Terri… I would love to look as good as her. You rock the bright jeans wonderfully as well!
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

  8. This is definitely what we call style evolution ! You pull the look nicely! I'd love to know what were the comments you got today for this' visible ' look!

  9. Oooo these pants are super cute. I think with super bright colored pant you risk running into that soccer mom look, but you've got a great combo.
