Green Jeans

by jennine on August 1, 2011

Either it’s cooling down, or I’m getting used to this hot mess, because I’ve been able to wear actual jeans without dying. It’s a good thing because, being dead is a drag, also I can pull out some of my favorite pairs of jeans and wear them around town. During the spring, I bought a pair of green jeans from American Apparel to test out the colored denim trend, if I would really like it. It turned out that I love green, and even more so, I love wearing green jeans! Though, the denim snob in me says these aren’t premium jeans, they aren’t the best fitting as they’re baggy in the knees and have a slightly awkward fit as compared to the uber comfy premium brands, but in comparison to regular pants, I love them, especially, zipper ankle opening.

Here I’m pairing the jeans with the Equipment Nixie blouse, leopard print shoes, and a vintage bag I picked up at a scrap yard (talk about mixing high and low). It’s nice to have such bright colors mixed in with black. Bright color’s a cheery way to start the week!

You make wearing green look so very relaxed, chic, and easy. I’m thinking maybe Kermit was prone to a bit of hyperbole.

I do love the colored jeans. I have a very similar pair from Zara that I used to test the waters and have since purchased Current/elliott and Rag and Bone colored denim (both of which I love). You look great and I especially love the pairing with the Equipment blouse.

Cute! I see what you mean about the knees, but there’s somehow something perfect about the fit. Maybe it’s the slightly cropped ankle. Love the bag, too.

I tried on a pair of green jeans a while back. Loved the color but not the fit on me.

Looking cool in this dress from bottom to top but you are looking much beautiful in this sunglass.

I was in American Apparel the other day and saw these jeans. I did a double take, but wasn’t to sure about them. I should have bought them- they look great! Thanks for sharing.

What a fabulous outfit. The green jeans with the leopard print shoes are amazing. It’s like a cat in the (green) jungle.

You really give justice in wearing that green pants with any top and different high heeled shoes! Not everybody can wear it the way you wear it. That’s my favorite color!

Unless or until you see the inseam from close up (the 2nd pic), it’s hard to even tell that those are jeans. Anyone viewing from the distance of the photographer in the first pic might just as well assume that the trousers are made of wool or some other fabric…
