30 Ways To Wear Purple Skinny Jeans ~ #30wears Challenge

As I try to move away from blue jeans, I've embraced other colours of denim! This purple pair of skinny jeans is a firm favourite, and the first pair of colourful denim in my collection that I've hit 30 wears with.

30 Ways To Wear: Purple Skinny Jeans

Cost Per Wear

I bought these 'blackberry' purple jeans back in April 2013. I've only been tracking prices with items for the past couple of years, but luckily I wrote on the blog how much I paid for these - $30! At 30 wears, that works out to the '$1 per wear' that seems to be the goal when calculating cost per wear. I'm not bored of these jeans either, despite having them for 6 years, so they will be staying in my wardrobe a little longer!
30 wears over 6 years seems like quite a low amount, but these jeans don't have a lot of stretch so wearing them over my two pregnancies was definitely out of the question! 30 times over say 4 years when you discount the pregnancy and postpartum phases is a bit of a better figure.

Purple Jeans For A Matchy-Matchy Outfit


5 ways to wear purple jeans with other purple pieces in an outfit | away from blue

If you've been reading my blog a while you'll know I love a little bit of matchy-matchy in my outfits! Having a colourful pair of jeans is a great excuse to continue that colour int eh rest of your outfit - a purple kimono, bag, cardigan or scarf works nicely with the purple jeans. Even if the shades don't match exactly it's a simple way to complete an outfit.


Purple Jeans With Pink

Pink and purple is a go-to colour combination for me, so of course I've worn these purple skinny jeans with pink pieces! If there's a colour combo you love, try it with a pair of colourful jeans! You can do it in a small way with a pink scarf, or go bigger and pair a pink blazer with purple jeans.


Purple Skinny Jeans With Navy


5 different ways to wear navy with purple skinny jeans | awayfromblue

Blue and purple is another go-to colour combination. When I had my wardrobe detox a few years ago, the stylist was curious why I had so many purple pieces. Because they go so well with blue! A little navy like a printed tank, or a lot of navy like a navy tee or cardigan, any amount works well with purple jeans.


Purple Jeans With Turquoise


3 outfit ideas with turquoise and purple skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue

I could have called this out with the blue option above, but I wore these purple jeans with turquoise so many times it felt right to give it it's own category! I like the deeper purple paired with the bright turquoise, it really brightens up an outfit.


Purple Jeans With Neutrals


how to wear purple jeans 3 outfit ideas with neutrals | away from the blue

You've seen how well these jeans work with other colours, but of course they work perfectly with neutrals too. A bold colourful pair of jeans - or any bold piece in your wardrobe! - will so easily go with neutral pieces. Picking out a neutral piece to wear with something more colourful is a good go-to option when you're not sure what else to wear.


Purple Jeans With Prints

Just like the neutral top option above, a printed top is another fail-safe to wear with purple jeans. As you can see, I favour stripes a lot, but any print, or even a little print mixing, will work well with colourful jeans. Purple jeans make a simple outfit base you can add extra interest to with prints.



Purple Jeans In Winter

While summer in Brisbane isn't the ideal jeans weather, I do wear them a lot in winter. These purple skinny jeans are such a fun way to add colour to a winter outfit, but still just as cosy and practical as normal jeans. You can see I'm using some of the outfit ideas above here too, with the navy, turquoise and printed pieces worn with these jeans.


Purple Jeans and Tee Outfits

The forever classic outfit, jeans and a tee! Swapping our standard blue jeans for a fun colourful pair like these purple jeans adds a little extra interest to a jeans and tee outfit, while still being just as easy to wear as classic blue.

  5. I LOVE those purple pants! I just don't know how we wear anything without stretch, though. I have a pair of jeans that look great on me but I rarely wear them because they have no stretch. I have a couple of pairs of colored jeans and I just don't wear them. This weekend I'm going to wear a pair of them because there's no excuse. I just don't think of them. It's wonderful getting to see all 30 ways you wore it at $1 per wear!

  26. Girl, you are purple PARADISE in these dream blackberry jeans! I love the vibrancy and wearability of these denim wonders, and it's even better you've got so much wear out of them since 2013! The idea of styling them in 30 different ways is such a gem, I love it! Pink and purple has always been one of my favourite colour combos and you showcase this so stunningly with your style. Your pink blazer is so pretty and your pink scarves so stylish and cute. Proving pink and purple is a winning combination for sure :) Turquoise and purple is such a fabulous style too, a real mermaid magical vibe! Your beads are always so blissful and such a fun way of accessorising. The purple jeans give a real winter wonderland edge on colder days too! I hope you have a fun-filled weekend ahead and that February is fabulous through and through for you ♥︎
