The pros and cons of colored denim

Colored denim is hot this fall, but it may not be for everyone. While it is an easy way to jump on the fashion train, it can make some tushes look a bit bigger than normal. Is colored denim a hit or miss? It depends. The following are just a few pros and cons of colored denim.

Quick Way to Jump on the Fashion Train

Colored denim makes it easy to be in fashion this fall. All you have to do is grab a pair of colored jeans and pair it with a cute top. It's that simple. Best of all, colored denim can be dressed up or down. Pair a colored denim jacket with dress pants and a blouse for a casual-dressy look or pair skinny colored jeans with a t-shirt and flats for a cute weekend look.

Fades Quickly

While colored denim starts out looking great, a few washings can leave the denim looking less than colorful. You can help keep the jeans looking great by washing them inside out and avoiding hot water. Still, they will eventually fade and faded colored denim is not pretty.

Is Fun to Wear

You can't help but smile when you're wearing colored denim. There's just something fun about wearing hot pink jeans. If you need a spring in your step, slip into some colored denim and embrace the day.

Isn't Appropriate for Business Casual

Many companies allow employees to wear jeans on Friday. While dark colored, boot-cut jeans are great for business casual, colored denim isn't. You just can't be professional in lime green capris. If you're buying colored denim, buy it for fun, casual wear, not business.

Is Affordable

Colored denim isn't something you have to pay a fortune for. You can find colored denim at your local discount department store. This allows anyone to have fun with this fashion forward trend.

May Not Look Good on Your Frame

Last, but not least, while colored denim may be cute on a trim frame, it's not the best look for plus-sized women. Personally, as much as I love the look, I know it would make my tushy look huge. However, I would consider a colored denim jacket.

Colored denim is a great fashion trend, but it does have it's ups and downs. Before you stock your closet with colored jeans and jackets, consider whether or not this trend is really for you.
