Fashion Trends: Coloured Denim And Chinos For Summer 2014

Monkee Jeans - Coloured Denim for Summer 2014

I have so much denim in Indigo and dark colours, and I love it. Darker denim is great because it goes with almost anything, it’s always stylish and you can wear it as a casual thing, or even a more smart approach when putting together a look. However sometimes it can get a bit boring, wearing the same old colour all the time, and the summer is a great season to wear different colours, and brighten up your look.

Wearing coloured denim jeans or chinos can certainly liven and brighten up your look. You can take a boring black or white t-shirt and with only a pair of coloured chinos you’ve created a more interesting look. It does not have to be bold and bright, you can get plenty of neutral or pastel colours, which will create a more toned down look, but still bright and colourful.

If you are not a huge fan of colour but want to add a little, I would recommend getting some high street labels or brands, so not to waste your money. You may only wear the colour a couple of times, so if you don’t think you’re going to be wearing colour a lot or for a long time, it will be better for your wallet. Not only that, you can get 3 or 4 colours at high street prices, and create a range of looks and outfits with these colours, rather than buying 1 pair with a limited number of outfits. Brands to try could be ASOS, Topman, H&M or River Island.

I found out one of my favourite high street jean companies were having a sale, and thought it would be the best opportunity to get in some coloured denim. Monkee Genes are a really great brand of denim and chinos. They have a policy of creating ethical fashion, I really love their ethos. They values are “No Blood, No Sweat, No Tears” and their stuff is made in Turkey, a hot bed of ethical manufacturing and are made from Organic cotton. They have a really fashionable fit too, most being a skinny fit (they do a supa skinny too, which is too skinny for me!). Their jeans are super soft which I love, and contain elastic so have a really nice stretch to the fit. I have been a fan of them for a while, and have had a couple of pair in the past, from classic denim colours to white, and now I have these, a hell of a lot of colours!

The colours I have – Indigo Denim, pale blue, plum, peacock, red, brown, cream, tan, green, white.

Some are chinos, and some are jeans. The white pair here are shorts, they’ll come in perfect if I go abroad in the summer, I got the white Monkee jeans a while back.

As you can see, plenty of options here to create a huge number of looks for this summer 🙂 Coloured denim and chinos is one of my favourite fashion trends, they can turn an otherwise stale look into something vibrant and fun for the warmer months.
