Give it a city-cool vibe with work boots or slip-on sneakers. For the evening or on colder days, layer on a camo jacket to finish the look.

Colored Jeans

Spice things up with a little color! Colored jeans go beyond blue and are a surefire way to make a statment.

  • Outfit Idea: Dress for your mood with colored jeans. They're an easy way to make your outfit stand out. Make colored denim the focal point and keep the rest of the outfit relaxed with a muted or neutral shirt. Feeling particularly bold? Go with monochromeatic separates—you can never go wrong with an all-white look. Finish with a pair of sneakers and a varsity jacket for a night out.
