How to Style Peach Jeans

by Stacey Kole

If you’re looking to join the colored-denim club, a pair of peach jeans is a stylish way to gain admission. While not as simple as basic black jeans or as bold as hot pink skinnies, peach introduces enough color for a fun, vibrant look that’s still easy to style. Whether you choose a neutral top or a daring print, a myriad of ensemble options will make your style peachy keen.

All in the Family

One of the most basic ways to wear a pair of peach jeans is to embrace variations of the color. Try a monochromatic look that weaves similar hues of peach or orange from top to bottom. For example, peach jeans and a lighter, dusty salmon blouse with neutral accessories gives a feminine vibe, while the same jeans with a bright coral tank or tee is vibrant for summer. It’s not necessary to match the exact hue of top to your pants -- as long as they’re in the same color family, the look will work well. Finish the look with metallic gladiator sandals for day or black pumps and a clutch for night.

Neutral Party

You simply can’t go wrong by wearing peach denim with a neutral top. Look in your closet for a white button-down, a gray V-neck boyfriend tee or a black tank top -- all pair beautifully with peach jeans. You can also mix several neutrals into the look, like a beige cardigan over a white tank top or a black-and-white striped or polka-dot blouse. Keep accessories simple with silver or gold jewelry and a pair of neutral ballet flats.

Denim and Blues

The beauty of a classic blue-denim shirt is that it functions as a near-neutral on top, and thus pairs well with peach jeans or colored bottoms in general. For a straightforward look, pick a chambray button-down, tuck in the front and leave the back free; add a narrow cognac belt and matching boots or wedges. For an adventurous colorblock combo, pair your peach jeans with a cobalt blouse, navy sweater or baby-blue t-shirt.

Playful Prints

A pair of pretty peach jeans is elevated to new fashion heights when you style it with a print. For a basic approach, simply wear your jeans with a white or black tee, and top with a silky patterned scarf that mixes in a shade of orange into the print. Or, make a bold style statement by choosing a striped, floral, plaid or animal-print top. For instance, a printed chiffon blouse in cream, blue and coral would pair beautifully with peach denim as would a neutral-hued leopard-print top.
