Signs of Spring: Colored Jeans

Signs of Spring: Colored Jeans

While walking past Old Navy last week, I saw some gorgeous, bright-colored jeans on display in the window.  Of course, I rushed in to try them on.  The petite sizes unfortunately weren’t available in the store, but I still did a quick try-on to see the overall fit.  I fell even more in love with them after trying them on, so I ordered the petite versions as soon as I got home.

Important note: the waist size on the petite inseam is 1 size smaller than the regular inseam version.   I tried on size 0 in the store, so I bought size 2 petite online to accommodate the difference.

There are three bright colors currently available: Kiss and Makeup (a pinkish color), Peri Winking (a periwinkle purple shade) and Mini Mint (a gorgeous mint green hue).  The colors are beautiful, and they’re all bright and not muted or subdued in the least.

Look at all those bright colors!

All three pairs are from the Rockstar line, which is Old Navy’s line of super stretchy jeans.  They feel more like ‘jeggings’ to me, but the line is so blurred these days, it’s hard to tell!  The fabric content is the same on all three pairs: 65% cotton, 20% polyester, 13% rayon, 2% spandex.

All three pairs feel amazing!  They are super stretchy and hug my curves in all the right places, while still being comfy.  I’m between sizes but chose the smaller because tighter pants elongate the legs more.  If you’re between sizes like me but prefer a looser fit, consider sizing up.

They are all mid-rise, coming to a bit below the belly button.  I would have preferred a higher rise to help elongate my short legs, but that’s all personal preference.

The inseam on the petite version is 25.5″: perfect for most petites, but still a bit long for me!  They are tight enough to tuck under or cuff, so it won’t be a problem at all.

Honestly, I can’t pick just one favorite pair of the three.  Since they were all so inexpensive, I don’t feel guilty about keeping them all.  After all, all three pairs together were less expensive than just one pair at a more expensive store!

The best part: they’re all on sale for President’s Day, AND they’re currently an additional 35% off the listed sale price!  Also, use promo code FORALL to get free shipping on any order, with no minimum.  That brings these gorgeous jeans down to less than $20 a pair before tax!  This promotion ends on 2/19, so if you love them, snatch them up now!
