Colored Jeans for Every Shape
No longer feeling blue, jeans have happily bloomed in a riot of colors, seemingly every shade from the palest pastel to the boldest primary hue. But to hone in on the right pair calls for more than color preference: When you’re sporting a hey-look-at-me shade on your lower body, fit is key.
