A Colorful Collection of Jeggings {Flying Monkey}

Bold, Brilliant, and vividly Bright colors are definitely in this season, and leading this trend are denim skinny jeans and jeggings! I had (keyword being had) been debating a pair for some time. With so many colors, styles, and fits to choose from, I just didn’t know which was the right one for me. That was before I saw the skinny jeggings from Flying Monkey!

I personally love, love, love this brand! Not only are they a great fit BUT they’re also SUPER comfy! To be honest, I’ve actually fallen asleep in them (by accident) and not realized it until I woke up! Hence, the J-E-G-G-I-N-G part: jean + legging  = jegging!

Now, back to the colors! So how do you know which color is right for you? My first pair was the red Flying Monkey jeggings. The color red was an easy choice because it was still winter, and even though it was the first color that actually hit the stores, I knew they would be very versatile. Plus, I’m planning on wearing them for the 4th of July!

My next pair came this spring, and I went for the canary yellow Flying Monkey jeggings. I was feeling spicy that day and it turned out to be a great color choice! I have gotten so many compliments when I wear them out for a night on the town with my girlfriends or as part of a casual outfit for everyday errands.

Even though I love my Flying Monkey color jeggings, you may still be debating a pair of your own. I want to give you a few styling tips that helped me.

Have fun with another fun trend: color blocking! It’s all about the bright ideas this summer, so give yourself the excuse to snag a boldly colored blazer or other lively pieces to rock with your color jeggings.

Pair ‘em with neutrals:

Let your colored denim steal the show by opting for neutral color pieces like white, cream, beige, brown, and black. Pastels are trending as well and are a gentle contrast of color to pair with your neutral tops.

Make your Prints Charming:

Add an extra “umph” to your color jeggings in the form of a pattern. Tops with polka dots, animal prints, tribal prints, horizontal stripes, tropical prints, or floral prints would be a fresh dash of spice to your outfit!

When it comes to colored denim, don’t fret too much about what to wear. Fashion is a fun form of personal expression, and there is nothing comfortable about forced style. The best style is your own style!
