In search of a high-impact color scheme this winter? You might go the way of the Brooklyn Blonde—a Brooklyn-based blogger with a penchant for gorgeous color combinations. She also loves colored denim, as you can see from her rich mustard yellow jeans below. If you’re nodding your head with enthusiasm at these visuals, you’ll love our three hand-picked favorites for jewel tone colored denim.
Imogen D., a street style blogger from London, rocked an outfit that combined the best of opulent, luxe fabrics and a playful, polka-dot denim short. Winter is the perfect time to play with rich fabrics like metallic lamé, velvet, and velour—and if you want to keep things casual, mix it with a pair of jeans. The medium blue wash of Imogene’s denim is a nice tonal combo with her jewel tone jacket, and the gold top’s texture keeps the whole thing from looking like dress-up in mom’s teenage closet gone wrong. We give her an A+ on the top half, though we’d lose the socks and studded booties for something a little more sleek.

Here’s a little tip that came to us while we were hitting up the weekend tag-sales on Sunday… pair your light-wash denim (preferably something with seamed, tailored look, like this H&M high-waisted denim skirt), with vintage jewelry! Whether you employ painted wooden beads in vibrant hues or an epic emblem brooch with costume-stones, this contrast of casual and opulent will add some serious punch to your summer style. To find both of these items, check out local thrift shops and tag sales in your area. You’re bound to find some once-loved pieces to call your own.
