Style On Trial: Pastel coloured jeans at Miss Selfridge

Brightly coloured jeans were very popular a few summers ago but now Miss Selfridge are offering jeans and capri length jeans in pale pastel colours – the pink and green shown here (although on our screen the green looks like a sort of dirty grey colour) and a pastel blue.  We would have to see these in person to judge the colours better, but we can’t help but be reminded of jeans in these sorts of shades back in the early ‘90s.

What do you think though?  Is it time to move on to a ‘90s revival after the love for all things ‘80s over the past couple of years (1990 was 20 years ago now after all)?  Or are jeans this colour best left in the past?  If you like them you can buy the pink for £35 here and the green for £30 here.

    I have 4 colors from Gloria Vanderbilt, and I have to say I love them for spring.

    I think these are muted enough to work as neutrals. The pink looks pinky-nude and the “green” looks blue-grey. I like the colors, but they look like they’d be too tight for my tastes.

    They’re nice, but I don’t see them looking good on anyone who isn’t a size 0. I like my jeans dark and flattering…not light and making my butt look twice as big.

    I have been more open minded about colored jeans than I thought I would be.

    I really like them, I want to be more adventurous with the colours of my jeans – at the moment I always stick to standard denim which is getting a little dull. These look perfect for spring/summer.
