Re: A trend towards the lighter colored jean

I like lighter washes in jean shorts and crop jeans for the warmer months. I prefer medium to dark washes the rest of the time.

Re: A trend towards the lighter colored jean

[ Edited ]

I buy EXPENSIVE jeans. Brands like Rag & Bone, Frame, Citizens, etc.  On the whole, I do prefer light or bleached jeans.  The lighter the better.  But I also have dark colors.  I only have 3 pairs of black jeans.  So they aren't my favorite.  Considering that I have about 70 pairs of jeans.....But the poster is correct.  The lighter jeans seem to be in.

Medium and Dark wash only for me. They are more professional to wear to work or dress up when we used to be able to go out and do those social activities, etc. I always think light jeans  start to look grungy to me after a few washes.

Re: A trend towards the lighter colored jean

 

I have one pair of indigo jeans, but I never wear them. I don't own true black jeans. I feel those shades are harsh for my coloring. And they don't go as well with the light & medium shades I wear in tops. 

 

That still leaves a lot of jeans to love. I like medium wash the best, plus light blue, washed black, gray, and white.

 

I'd like to try other colors in jeans (mint? pink? plum?) but I never get around to buying them.

Yes, I prefer darker jeans. I wear black and very dark jeans, never wear light colored jeans.

Re: A trend towards the lighter colored jean

I have maybe 3 pairs of light wash jeans, all the others are medium or dark rinse. I don't have any black jeans either.

For whatever reason, I am just not a fan of lighter colored denim. 🤷🏼‍♀️
