Yellow Jeans for Work

by jennine on March 6, 2012

Yellow Jeans

Yellow is a highly underrated color. Orange too. But yellow is one of the colors I can surround myself in and feel happy with. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always go well with my complexion. Over the past few years, colored jeans have really come into their own. I’ve been wearing a pair of green jeans for a while, and have a pair of orange ones, but this pastel yellow by J Brand is easily one of my favorites. It pretty much goes with everything, and makes every outfit happy.  Not to mention the stretchy twill is super comfortable, making this pair of jeans a staple in my weekly rotation.

Here I’ve paired it with my turqoise Ariztia silk blouse and a standard black blazer with vintage pumps. It probably falls in the color blocking trend, though I’m afraid of color blocking being “so 2011″ oh well, it’s easy. Today I had a meeting and had to look somewhat presentable and blazers always make every outfit look dressed up, even if it’s with a cheery pair of yellow jeans.

These jeans are fantastic, the yellow is soft enough that they almost turn into a neutral. You look great!

I love this ensemble, especially the color of your jeans paired with that top and I can’t leave out that gorgeous Phillip Lim bag. ;)
Yellow can definitely be underated and I am determined to break it out on the scene single-handedly this season.

I agree the soft buttercup yellow of these jeans makes them much more wearable than a more brighter tone would. I’ve been hunting for more colored denim albeit cheaper ones than J Brand as nice as they are :)

LOVE yellow - I probably wear far too much of it. That buttery color looks beautiful with the blue shirt, what a beautiful day there!

I’m totally assuming you took off your jacket for this pic? New York is freezing !

That said, your yellow jeans are super. I used to have the best purple jeans..and stupidly got rid of them

I love those colors together! Looks great. But I have to ask: did you really go to a meeting with your shirt un-tucked like that?

Maria March 9, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I love the whole outfit. Yellow just fits well light blue and black. I love to wear something that would make me look both classy and professional. Thank you for sharing.

You wear the yellow jeans well! And I love your nails!

Love the way you combined the bold blue top with the muted yellow pants. You color block like a pro. I need to take a page from your book. - Katy

You’re my inspiration for wearing colored jeans! Thanks! I love the tights peeking out at the bottom.

Love the turquoise and yellow together. They look great on you! Who cares if color blocking is 2011 or not!

Jennine March 12, 2012 at 12:39 am

Hi! Wow, just found your blog randomly by googling my name to see if my and my sister’s blog came up; your blog was the first thing to come up. Jennine isn’t such a common name, so I’m glad I found it. I love your style and the 5 steps for the hair sock bun was totally awesome, thanks! Check out our blog if you have a chance :)

Love the combination, the association of this 2 colors looks stunning!

I absolutely think that yellow is underrated. It’s definitely heaven on you — look how vibrant and gorgeous your complexion looks!

Also, sorry to be sappy but I got really busy over the past year and fell out of the habit of looking at some of my favorite blogs — including yours. I really missed it. I’m REALLY glad you’re still blogging, and as awesome at it as ever. :)

This actually works. I never would have thought about yellow jeans to work. That’s also a great looking handbag that she is carrying.

I wish desperately that I was brave enough to pull off yellow pants…
