A while back, Target shocked me by refilling a stock of jeans that they had been sold out of for months, and finally one late night out last week it was cool enough for me to wear them! These are Target's "curvy skinny" fit, which I love, because their normal colored skinnies don't fit me well.
If you're still intimidated by colored denim, cobalt is a great gateway into colored denim. It's really close to normal blue jeans, but its vibrancy is enough to differentiate it. This outfit would be pretty normal with regular blue jeans, but the trade for cobalt makes the whole thing more vibrant and exciting. If you're feeling the fall colors, I think another great gateway color for colored denim is burgundy. It's somewhat of a pseudo-neutral, warm and not too in-your-face, but sophisticated and helpful in changing up your outfit options. Here are some burgundy jean options: one, two, three, four.
