Daring Denim.


One of the biggest trends that Consuela is loving this season is the array of denim options that have hit the fashion scene.  Your options are no longer limited to dark or light wash, distressed, or over-dyed.  You can find denim all over the market in a variety of colors, patterns, shapes and styles.

Choosing a daring pair of denim over your everyday skinny jeans can take your whole outfit to an entirely new level and allows you to really show your personality through your wardrobe.  How can you not stand out in a neon pink pair of skinnies or show your feminine flair with floral?

One reservation many people tend to have about jumping onto the daring denim trend bandwagon is they don’t know how to style them… but in reality, the options are endless! Let us assure you, this look truly is for everyone.  Need some ideas?

Whimsical Pop.

Want to keep it simple and chic?  Pair a neutral top with a fun pair of skinnies to sprinkle a dash of the unexpected.  Glam it up with some accessories and you’re sophisticated and trendy.  This look is absolutely versatile and is perfect for the self-proclaimed “Neutral Nellie”— get your casual look for a Sunday afternoon spent wandering South Congress in Austin and then trade out those flats for a pair of killer nude heels for an evening dinner party with friends.

Color Blocking.

Color blocking is an easy way to take a basic outfit and turn it up a notch!  Mixing and matching bright bold colors is one of the hottest trends this season. Incorporating your colorful denim can be a fun challenge…just remember to follow 3 simple rules: stick to 2-3 colors, keep your items solid in pattern, and don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and contrast.

Pattern Play.

Want to be REALLY daring?  Play with pattern!  Who knew stripes and florals could complement each other?  Mix and match the items you already have in your closet and your options are endless. The wild combinations you come up with add a touch of playfulness to your everyday outfit.
