Pretty Perfect Pale Pink Pants


Pale Pink Denim

Try saying that title five times fast! Happy Happy February-- Can you believe how warm it is in some parts of the country? I know here in VA, it is in the 60s! Maybe it's the warm weather but I am seriously obsessing over the colored denim trend. However, I am usually not one for out of the box shades. I like to stick with what I know: Nantucket red, hunter green, etc. One color I will go out of the box for is the pale pink shade. I think it is the absolute perfect pant for spring because it will still keep you warm (I find that jeans keep me a lot warmer than chinos) but add the pastel punch that you are craving around that time of year.

I personally love the pale pink denim paired with navy blue. There is something so classic about the combination. To change it up I also love it when paired with oxford cloth button downs (OCBD) or chambray button downs.

I think to avoid looking too trendy and also giving you the option to wear the pants for many years in a more classic way is to get the perfect fit. That is, buy them in boot cut; not too skinny or too tight and nothing with rips or cut outs.

I also think that trying to dress-up this pair of denim would sort of ruin the look. I know it seems a bit tempting to pair it with a black blazer or nude heels, but leave that to the runway/celebrities. These pale pants look best when worn casually and classically. (Plus, how cute would these be to sport on Valentine's day!).

My Picks: J. Brand, Adriano Goldschmied, Kohl's (super inexpensive, not the greatest fit), ASOS (a skinnier option), J. Crew. Do you have a pair of pale pink denim? How do you wear them? Have a fabulous day!
Yours,
sCe

Great idea pairing the Norwegian sweater and duck boots with this! Reminds me of something I might have seen in the late 70s and early 80s when brightly-colored denims and corduroys proliferated.

These are so cute; so much more my speed than the red pants trend from last year! The middle look is adorable. :)

The pale pink jeans look super cute with the striped boatneck and loafers! It's really beautiful with navy - and since half of the tops in my wardrobe are navy, this may need to be something I try this Spring!
