Styling Agave Skinny Jeans
I’ve been asked a few times if mint colored jeans are looking dated. I don’t think they’re necessarily out of style because pretty much any pastel-colored pant goes right now, but I retired mine last year because I was getting tired of them. (I wore them for 4 years — see different ways I’ve styled them HERE.)
I still think you’re fine to wear mint colored jeans if you have them, but this agave color is a nice modern take on the mint green trend that was so hot a few years ago. They have a nice lived-in look, and the color is more of a dusty sage that is really pretty with light neutrals.
These jeans are a really stretchy twill, and they don’t bag out, so I would recommend sizing up if in between. I went with the smaller of my two sizes because 7 For All Mankind jeans often stretch out, but I wish I had gone a size up. I’d recommend that if you’re ordering.
I paired them with this ivory ruffle sleeve sweater from White House Black Market. I picked it up when they were running a 25% off sale a few weeks back.
In addition to the ruffle sleeve detail, I think the pin-tucked texture throughout is so pretty, and the boatneck is flattering on almost anyone. Again, as with the jeans, this top is a little snug. I went with a small, and I probably could have gone with a medium to be a little more comfortable, but this one works okay.
It’s a really versatile top. I’ve also worn it with black jeans and black espadrilles, and you could easily pair it with dress pants and ankle boots or pumps for work wear.
If you look back through my mint jeans outfits, you’ll see a trend. I always pair them with white or ivory. It certainly works, but I’d like to venture out of my comfort zone a little bit and try them with some different colors. I think this agave color would be nice with black or a black and white print, but there are probably some other more creative color combinations I could try. Tell me what you’d wear them with!
For shoes, I went with my old friends, these Stuart Weitzman wedge sandals.
These shoes are a few years old, and they were a huge splurge when I bought them, but I’ve worn them a ton. I love everything about them, and I’m so glad espadrille wedges are still trending.
They’re not available anymore, but I found a few sizes on a site called Yoox, and this year they have this pair that is similar and there is also this pair. I know they’re spendy, but really, any espadrille wedge in a neutral color would be pretty with this. These are really comfortable for under $100.
I just added my go-to taupe shoulder bag and a few pieces of statement jewelry to complete the look.
These earrings and necklace are by Alison + Aubrey, a new collaboration between my friend Alison Lumbatis of Get Your Pretty On and her daughter Aubrey. Alison gifted them to me to try out, and I absolutely love them.
The Vivie Fringe Tassel Earrings are delicate, but they definitely make a statement. I love the combination of the blush fringe with the agave pants. The Alexis Oval Layered Tassel Necklace is a great stand alone piece, but it also compliments the tassel earrings. Both are incredibly lightweight and so pretty in person.
