Three ways to wear lime green skinny jeans

You guys seemed really keen on those lime skinny jeans I picked up from Target, so I wanted to do an outfit post showing a few different ways to style them!

It was hovering around the freezing mark today so I had to wear my boots outside through the snow to the one grassy patch in the yard, then change into my other shoes and drop my coat for the photos. I think you can see how cold I am by my posture! But it was fun to try out a few different outfits, even if I did have an audience of neighboring pets staring at me. I don’t care if they’re just animals, they still made me feel silly!

First I tried something fairly low-key. The obvious answer to brights is a neutral, and black is my personal failsafe, but it can look too harsh next to a neon. Instead I chose a grey t-shirt and my trusty black sneakers. (Shirt: Wet Seal; sneakers: Payless)

Second I thought I’d add other shades of green via a mint blazer and lime heels. It’s a lot of color in one outfit but since it’s varying shades of one color (green), it’s not too scary. This blazer was a Valentine’s gift from H&M and has the cutest pleat/ruffle detail on the back to balance out the strong shoulders. For some unknown reason I can’t find this jacket on the H&M website, but you can find it in-store. (Shirt: Walmart, previous season; blazer: H&M; earrings: Vanity; shoes: Payless, previous season)

Finally I went all out with brights and cork wedges. I love coral and lime together and the aqua scarf is becoming one of my new favorite items as well! (Shirt: Walmart; scarf: TJ Maxx; shoes: Payless, previous season)

How would you style a pair of lime skinnies? What colors do you like best with lime green? Any other suggestions for me to try out this spring? Tell me in the comments!
