Of all the latest fashion trends for Spring 2012, none is bigger than super fun, colorful jeans. From pretty pastel shades to saturated, crayon-box brights, it seems that this season, women are looking for more than just a basic pair of broken-in blues. And with this extra jolt of color in your wardrobe comes the opportunity to experiment with belts in ways that you may not have dreamed of before.
One way to do this is by pairing your cheerful new jeans with a skinny belt or two. Cool, skinny belts will easily slip through those belt loops and provide an eye catching accent without overpowering the jeans. If you've just picked up some denim in mint green or baby peach, pick up one of our Glossy Silver ½” Skinny Belts, which work well with ice cream hues. If your jeans are bright red or green, then the ½” Skinny Belt With Covered Buckle in yellow or turquoise is a fantastic choice. Got a thing for neon? We do too, so check out styles in neon yellow, green or pink; at only 3/8” wide, you can double them up and thread them through the belt loops or wear them lower on your hips. Just pick shades that contrast your jeans for an extra playful pop of color. If you’re in the mood to bring it back to basics, a black or brown belt provides a striking contrast without looking too intense.
Want to keep your belt loops free? Another innovative way to make your colored jeans stand out from the rest is to wear your belt over your shirt. A denim shirt always looks classy and cool with bright bottoms, and you can spice it up even more by adding a waist belt. Instead of a skinny belt, go with a stretch belt or even a thick, woven piece with accent colors that complement your jeans. A wrap belt with the end hanging down looks trendy yet says, “I’m too hip to be completely polished.”
Whether you decide to keep it simple with a solid, neutral belt or add that extra punch with leopard or neon, your colored skinnies are guaranteed to attract some major attention!
