Looking for the fun and easy light blue jeans outfit ideas for a pear shaped body? Let's talk about the best light denim and what to wear with light blue jeans!
It's jean season…..let's be honest…..in Southern California it's pretty much always jeans season. It's warm, sunny, and perfect weather for getting outside each and every day most of the year. My favorite part? The outfits. From lighter colors to fun prints……most of the year we have happy, weather and our outfits can follow suit. This year, I'm all about great basics that I can wear year round. At the top of my list? Great tees, simple sandals, and the perfect light blue jeans outfits. I'm not gonna lie, I've AVOIDED light blue jeans like the plague for the last few years. Would the lighter color make my thighs look bigger? Draw attention to my widest part? I promised myself I would only wear light blue jeans if I found the PERFECT fitting pair. And now? After finding a few light wash denim pieces that I love? I love putting them together in casual outfits on my pear shaped body. In fact, after so many years of dark jeans…..I go for a pair of light wash jeans almost every time these days.
Light Blue Jeans Outfit Ideas
Let's talk about what to wear with light blue jeans. After years of dark denim only, I'm a total convert. I love that light blue jeans can be easily dressed up or down, and they look……great on all body types. I've found myself grabbing the same pairs of light blue jeans over and over and really honing how I love to style them.
For me? Since light denim is so neutral…..you can have a lot of fun with the other items in your outfits. From fun textures to great patterns……they all compliment light blue denim nicely and make GREAT light blue jeans outfit options easy as pie.
My top picks for wearing with a pair of jeans especially light blue jeans right now? Leopard print booties, white sneakers and a classic white shirt plus a classic leather jacket in cooler months, and anything with texture or shine. They add a little pizazz and dimension to otherwise simple outfits and are perfect for any casual look.
Now…..the jeans? These are my favs on any body type but especially my pear shaped one:
ABLE Wide Leg Jeans(size 31): These jeans? In addition to being ethically made? THEY FIT LIKE A DREAM. Seriously. They’re the first pair light blue jeans I ever tried on that I wanted to wear again and again and again. They’re The High Rise in Ileana Wash, and I’m totally obsessed. For reference, I sized up to a 31 (I normally wear a 30) but….these are non-stretch denim, so I wanted a little give. And they were the perfect size. They’re perfect base for a million casual outfits.
Madewell 10 inch High Rise (size 29): Remember when I raved about these jeans over and over from Madewell? I have an entire blog post showing these same light blue jeans on 12 different women. For a classic pair of skinny fit and high waisted light blue jeans? You can't find better. They fit perfectly and are great for everyday wear. My favorite regular rotation outfit with these? Slip on sneakers and a great white tee. These are a perfect middle blue wash, so look great with light colors or bright colors. They also come in a lighter wash if you are looking for lighter shades!
Kelsey Distressed High Waist Kick Flare Jeans (size 10): These.JEANS. I was so shocked when I first tried them on…..I thought I'd never wear wider leg jeans again (let's leave those in the 90s, right?). Well, I love them. They're totally unexpected and super comfy. I wear them casually with sneakers and a sweatshirt and loved dressing them up with these leopard booties and a fun blouse! In the warmer months? I love these with a blouse and sandals. And in the colder months? These booties and a blouse or flannels shirts for a little edge.
Donna Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (size 10): These super stretchy light blue jeans are a serious wardrobe staple and your best option for a super versatile pair. I've owned them forever and don't know what I'd do without them. They're the perfect light jeans for traveling and I've worn them to a million theme parks. Great for all day wear. They look great with a sweatshirt and sneakers or a plain tee and a baseball cap for a relaxed look and I've switched to heels or over the knee boots and a fun tunic to dress them up with ease!
