Paul & Joe Sister colored jeans for spring

Winter blahs getting you down? To brighten up your wardrobe try adding one pair of colored jeans into the mix. These are Paul & Joe Sister’s take on colored jeans from their Resort 2009 collection. They’re available at Josef now ($139). Wearing colored jeans is easier than you think. Just keep it simple. Pair bright colors with neutrals: greys, tans, white/creams. I’d actually try to stay away from black because it’s too predictable.

On the streets last summer I saw one girl wearing yellow-golden jeans with a white top, cream sweater, and earthy brown heeled sandals. A combo that surprisingly looked great! For the sky blue jeans pictured above, I’d pair it with the Dorothy Lee heather grey t-shirt I have in the shop and a warm fuzzy over-sized cardigan. Then for summer wear the jeans with a cute cotton short-sleeved blouse and flat sandals. Easy as pie.

What color grabs your attention the most?

Last week I brought in my camera to take more pics of the shop. This is the view I look at for most of the day – my front window. Over the past weeks, I’ve been experimenting with different dresses on the mannequin. The vermilion Yoana Baraschi dress in the picture has stopped quite a few women in their tracks as they walk by. I’ve also tried a black/green/fucshia/lilac Anna Sui floral watercolor dress, however my suspicion is that it’s not as effective in drawing women into the shop. I like to rotate the display frequently to show the variety of clothing the shop carries. I’m thinking an LBD for the New’s Years display… not so sure about black though.
