Easy Way To Wear Colourful Jeans In Winter: Matching Scarves, Stripes and Converse

Bright and colourful denim is a nice way to step away from the blue jeans rut while still being just as easy and practical to wear. Stripes go with everything, and in winter it's fun to add a similarly colourful scarf with your bright jeans for easy accessorising.

Picking a scarf that matched the skinny jeans is the way I've worn both the outfits below, and while I liked both outfits I had very different days when I wore them.

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket

Why I wore it:

Having a couple of hours kid free to run some errands and go to appointments gave me the chance to get this lovely Balenciaga part time bag out again. I just love the slouch on this bag!

I tried a little double denim to meet an instagram style challenge when I wore this earlier in June, but even then it was a little cold and despite the big blanket scarf I wished I'd worn something a little cosier. This was such a nice outfit though, even with the less than ideal denim jacket not keeping me as warm as I'd like. Comfortable, easy to wear, and I had a very productive day when I wore it so it was a winner.

Last worn: denim jacket, striped tee, purple blanket scarf, purple skinny jeans, Converse, Balenciaga part time bag.

Why I wore it:

I enjoyed the outfit combination above so much that when I was feeling uninspired and not sure what to wear a few weeks later I decided to wear a similar outfit with my red skinny jeans - but with a warmer cardigan this time instead of the denim jacket like in the outfit above.

This day started out perfectly with a little lie-in of 10 minutes. It doesn't sound like much, but when you have kids getting an extra 10 minutes to lie in bed before they wake up is amazing! We had a busy morning with a doctor's appointment for Baby Boy and a trip to the pharmacy. When we got home I wasn't feeling the best, and tried to take it easy for the rest of the day.

Taking it easy was a good idea as that evening Baby Boy got extremely unwell and we had to call an ambulance. Thankfully we were out of hospital in the early hours of the morning after a few tests, but it's hard to like this outfit as much as the one above when it was such a horrible day when I wore it! I often find I'm harsher on my outfits if I'm not having a good day, even if it would otherwise be something I like wearing.

How You Can Wear It:

If you're worried that a colourful pair of jeans would be too difficult to style, follow the easy outfit formula of pairing them with neutrals and then a similarly bright accessory. While in winter a scarf that's the same colour as your bright jeans is a good idea, you could make this work in other seasons with a necklace for a similar, more season-appropriate look. And when in doubt, stripes really do go with everything!

  1. Now I wish it was a little chilly where I am so I can wear scarves too!

  2. I love those dark purple jeans! That's one color of jeans I don't have but would love to add to my closet!

  3. I love, no, I ADORE both of these outfits! I really like the bright colours and how you've made them comfortable for you by adding the scarves.

    Sorry to hear about all the illness with your dear little one. I associate one of my skirts with one of my old kitties (the chrysanthemum skirt, and old Othello), and I always feel a little sad when I wear it.

  4. Hi pretty lady!... your scarves and bold colors add a chic and vibrant touch to both looks! As always you accessorized beautifully! Have a wonderful weekend!


  5. Very gorgeous! I am a stripes fanatic, so anything stripes, I will fawn over. I'll definitely think of your outfits to wear when fall comes around :)

  6. Oh man your poor little man. It seems like you have been in the hospital with him so many times. I love your bright pops with the scarves and pants!

  7. Stripes and sneakers, a perfect combination. And it is nice to see you so "bundled up" for once, finally a style that I can relate to here in my usually way colder country!

  8. Oh no, poor little guy! I sure hope his health gets better soon, I am so sorry that you have had to go through so much with him. Keeping your family in my prayers Mica!
    I love both looks--the jeans + scarf coordination makes it so fun!
    Also--YES to an extra 10 minutes in bed. It can really make a big difference for a tired mama!

  9. Oh I love the idea of matching the scarf to the jeans. Both looks work super well and are the perfect go to for day out and about running errands.

  10. Great looks! I keep forgetting you're in the middle of winter now ;) Hope your little one is better.

  11. Love the bright scarves and matching pants, and I adore this red and purple !
    Great inspiration, and so well done !
    Xx, Elle

  12. It's freezing here in Sydney too! Love the purple blackberry jeans, they're my fave :)

  13. Now I can't wait to get out my colored jeans again! I love how you've really drawn out the color of the jeans by adding a matching scarf. These are both easy outfits to wear and put together, but the color really makes them feel more complete and well thought out. It's amazing what color can do for an outfit!

  14. You are rocking the red pants with the striped top and the red scarf, I love it!!! I have a couple of coloured trousers for winter but I rarely wear them, in the last winter all I wore were leggings and boots and sometimes a dress with thick tights!! Happy Monday Mica xx


  15. Love how you are matching your coloured jeans with your scarves - looks awesome! I haven't been game to buy a pair of coloured jeans before but the time has come! I definitely want to try and rock a pair as well as you :)

  16. Such great tips! I love a bit of colour all year round and I am always a matchy-matchy type of person, so adding a scarf or jewellery the same colour is a great idea!

  17. Love how you paired the same color of jeans with the scarves. Will definitely try that with my wardrobe. Always love your style Mica.

  18. Oh this is so cute. Love the tips! I'm in the states, but am already thinking about how I can wear my Spring/Summer colored jeans in the colder seasons. :D

  19. I absolutely love the red scarf!! I need to be a little more adventurous with my scarves, they are the perfect accessory!

  20. Ha! what a great idea Mica, matching scarves with the colored denim looks so good.
    My bright yellow denim was part of my cousin's second hand clothing bag - they were brand new. All I had to do was hem them.

  21. I want the red jeans outfit. �� So sorry to hear about your little guy. It's so hard when our babies get sick ��

  22. Your outfits are always so cute!! I am a huge scarf fan...I have a dressmakers mannequin covered in them, lol!
