the coloured denim conundrum

ksubi tangerine jeans backksubi tangerine jeans

am i crazy for pondering the purchase of coloured denim? i know it's been around for a little while now... well, "revived" for a little while, but for some reason red, blue, yellow, purple jeans haven't grabbed me as much as these tangerine tsubi-sorry- ksubi ones. am i crazy? that isn't a rhetorical question- i really want to know! i wore coloured jeans in my youth so is it a case of "if you've done it once don't do it again" or am i too old for this kind of stuff? part of me is thinking they would look amazing with shades of grey...

You know Steph, I'm still undecided if I like colored denim for the same reason as you in the sense that I have done it in my youth. To me, it wasn't cool back then, so do I really want to make the same mistake again? I want to like them, cause colored denim would be a nice break from the denim norm and would add a splash of color if paired with a monotoned top, shoes, and accessories. But then I wonder, if I like color denim now, does that mean I would like big shoulder pads if they were to come back into style too?

I could be crazy for just thinking that.

i have the ksubi purple ones and i like them a lot. yes, not as easy as regular jeans, but are fun to wear occasionally. i love the coral though and would look so good with grey and royal blue

I think those pants are awesome, they're part of my "shock sane" theory. The pants being the "shock" party while your shade of grey being the "sane" part. I say go for it.

thanks for your opinions everyone! i really like them but since i bought the acne shoes they are out of my budget for a while- i do like them a lot paired with grey, so maybe if somebody still has them in stock in a few months i will pick them up.
