After every fashion week, we analyze the runway looks in-depth, and one of my personal favorite undertakings is writing about the color trends that were ubiquitous among the thousands of looks that graced the four cities. We've already covered the colors that will be dominating this spring, and after analyzing the recent fall/winter 2023 runways, many of these hues will continue to come into play for the remainder of the year.
There's no doubt that one of the easiest ways to integrate this year's color trends into your look is by styling them with a pair of jeans. This is particularly ideal for those who are color averse and want to dip their toes into the chroma waters in a subtle way.
Today, I want to share five specific color trends that go particularly well with blue denim that we're spotting all over the fashion crowd this season. These will unquestionably make your basic jeans look very "2023" and give them a trend-forward touch. Take a peek below and shop plenty of picks to add color to your wardrobe this year.
One of the most dominant trends we saw on 2023's spring and fall runways is a vibrant chili-pepper red. The fashion crowd is sporting the color in full force right now, styling the shade in the form of tops, dresses, handbags, hair accessories, and eyewear. The color really pops against blue denim and is, by far, one of the most strikingly cool color combos of the season.
Metallics are having a major moment this spring, and we're seeing silver, in particular, all over the street style set—especially when it comes to shoes and bags. The shiny, glistening hue is an easy way to elevate your denim and make your jeans look au courant.
Yep, it's all about blue denim-on-denim looks this season, an outfit formula that feels fresh and cool. Opt for a shirt or jacket in a matching color to your jeans, which will give your outfit a more streamlined silhouette. But quite honestly, if you don't want to match your blues, that's fine too. You can break the style rules and have fun when it comes to a Canadian tuxedo in 2023.
Sure, some of the stronger fuchsia pinks continue their popularity this spring, but it's soft ballet pink that embodies the "pretty" theme we're seeing this year. Whether you go for a pale-pink accessory, a sweet statement coat, or a silky-satin pastel—my personal favorite—there's no doubt the color will complement your blue denim beautifully.
Okay, okay, I know that black is always in style, but it's absolutely worth noting that the versatile color had a major presence on the spring runways (there were over 4000 all-black looks), proving that 2023 is all about making a bold statement through this understated, powerful, and perennially chic hue. Moreover, it's quite literally one of the easiest colors to pair with your jeans, day or night.
