How to wear pastel denim (thanks to DL1961 Jeans!)

by Jaime on August 17, 2011

Can I just say that if I don’t get my hands on that plum/periwinkle or brown, I’ll cry.

DL1961 Premium Denim is the largest and most extensive denim brand exclusively manufactured with XFIT LYCRA®, the latest innovation in stretch denim. XFIT LYCRA® is a patented cross-weave technology that provides a four-way directional stretch that moves 360 degrees with the body and delivers superior shape retention, fit and comfort.

For 2011, DL1961 has ventured into new categories in and out of the denim market, including wax-dipped denim, colored denim and a men’s collection. Expanding their mark on the denim industry, DL1961 turns up the volume on colored denim and adds a new edge to their collection with leather-inspired wax-dipped denim and new denim hues that range from autumnal inspired browns and rusts, to bold Brights including cobalt blue, plum and pastels.

I did a video very recently on how to wear colored denim  – which will help immensely! – but the key tricks are as follows:

1. Wear lighter pigmented clothing with dark, non color tops.
2. If you’re going for a summery look, avoid heavy sweaters or bulky clothing. Chunky shoes, however, are a definite go.
3. Trust your instincts. If you think it won’t work, it probably won’t.

What are your style tips for how to wear pastel jeans?

O-M-G it’s true…. whatever is old is new again! My friends & I sported jeans like this back in 1974 75-76! I had a pale blue pr & a pink pr, & my Girlfriend had a pr that looked ALOT like the Agave cream (yellow) ones in yr next article! I would be a RICH woman if I had been smart enough to save some of these clothes….. (sigh) oh well…..

I’m a big fan of colored denim, and the pastel ones pictured are quite pretty. Dunno if they’d look good on thicker girls like me….but i have lots of grey’s, got brown, ruby red, rust, and a pair of 7FaM bootcuts in a lavendar-ish color.
