Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. This column will focus on one piece per week, and teach you how to take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

The colored jeans trend has been around for awhile, but personally, I've never been a huge fan - until now, that is. This trend has really come into its own lately, offering a complete palette of amazing colors to suit every sense of style, instead of just your typical bright pinks, electric blues and neon greens.

Whether your favorite pair is a funky citron yellow, a pretty coral or a subtle purple, you can wear colored jeans in almost any situation. That's why this week I'll be showing you how to style a pair of colored jeans for day or night, helping you put a fresh new spin on the boring old blue jean.

No matter what color jeans you choose (I love these mint green skinnies for spring!), try pairing them with a girly blouse in a coordinating color - you've got to love the adorable cat print on this one from Modcloth. Break it up a bit with a neutral toned belt, and choose accessories in bold, contrasting colors to keep from looking too matchy-matchy.

Colored Jeans: Night Out

To glam up your look for night, pair your jeans with a basic top to make the color really pop. This asymmetrical black top balances out the jeans and is still subtly sexy. Get a little wild with a pair of leopard print pumps and funky jewelry: I'm in love with these geometric earrings - they almost look like fangs. Complete the look with a clutch in one of  spring's hottest colors.
