Last year I brought a pair of pink jeans! I worn them a few times. Have a big clear out and wondered should I keep or chuck?

Have recently invested in a pair of grey skinny jeans trying to find my inter Kate Moss grin and just thought the pink jeans seems a bit faddy?!

It's the kind of thing that will look great if you like them and feel comfortable in them. V springlike so I would be digging them out around now.

But if they make you go "ich, I' not sure about these pink jeans, is everyone looking at me?" then chuck.

Er... wear what you want?

OhCaptainDarling Fri 07-Mar-14 10:08:17

Must admit I thought they were cool but actually it was impulse supermarket purchase! Saw a friend wearing a pair and she looked amazing it them. Must remember I'm not a size 6...wink

I do wear them and little bit self-conscious...chuck it is then!

my 2yo is wearing some today and they look lush.

apparently I take fashion advice from a baby. that I dress.

poo really?

TU Brand
Skinny --more like Bootcut IMHO-
Size 16R

I'm not a 12 so they look ridiculous!

My DD had a pair when she was 2, so looked flipping cute in them!

OhCaptainDarling Fri 07-Mar-14 10:18:50

More like a large 14, haven't even been a 16

poocatcherchampion Fri 07-Mar-14 13:37:18

yes really!!! sounds like they might do me! if you are sure I'll pm you my address. do you want anything for them?

poocatcherchampion Fri 07-Mar-14 13:37:46

and thank you so much!!!

I'll be donning my pink jeans again in the next few weeks - both bright candy pink and a richer fuchsia shade.

But I agree with ListenToTheLady - if you feel uncomfortable then chuck.

I'm actually on the look out for pink skinnies atm but agree, only keep what you feel good in!

How about wearing them with a longer tunic type top op? You would only be showing a splash of pink on 3/4 of your legs. Not as full on then. Are they baby pink/hot? You could easily wear grey with them and add this scarf to update an outfit with them

I've just bought some coral pink skinny jeans. I wear them with long tops in grey or navy, and so far only one person has commented about my bright trousers. And he's a bit of a pillock anyway, so I'm not bothered! I think they're nice for spring smile

Twinklestein Fri 07-Mar-14 17:09:07

I've got pale pink, bright pink and coral, I'm looking forward to wearing them...

For anyone who likes J Brand these are a fab bargain.

i have three pairs too, same colours as twinkle bought last year from zara and i love them! also tried on some lovely peachy ones from Levis that are in just now but they were �80!

Chuck 'em.

MrsCampbellBlack Fri 07-Mar-14 18:56:19

I like them for summer - but agree not in the flesh colour as that's freaky!

Kelly1814 Fri 07-Mar-14 19:02:58

I have a bright pink pair from whistles. Love them. Wear them!

OhCaptainDarling Sat 08-Mar-14 16:50:09

Shall I take a photo poo?

Surprised about the love for the pink jeans grin

I have fuschia ones from gap and emerald green that I wore all year last year. This winter they seemed a bit bright.

I think definitely spring-like. I will probably do like warrap says and wear with long navy or grey tops to play down the colour.

Love the grey & pink scarf.

Hot pink jeans are fab. Cropped even better.

Flangeofmingetown Sat 08-Mar-14 18:16:54

No they are vile. Chuck as well as any farking red trousers and any other jaunty coloured ones.

Flangeofmingetown Sat 08-Mar-14 18:17:47

There is always Dylon.....

The other day, in a sea of dark neutrals, I saw a middle-aged tourist in skintight pink jeans. She was the flamingo and the rest of us were the crows wink
