This trend has been stuck around for a few seasons now but I love it. Standard dark wash denim is very versatile and you can pretty much wear it with everything. Colored denim is a little trickier however, it is still just as versatile as denim if you know what to wear it with. My favorite color for bright denim is a bright blue such as J.Crew's toothpick jeans. http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/denim/toothpick/PRDOVR~62443/62443.jsp
This color is definitely wearable in winter and summer. In the colder months you can tone it down with a dark sweater and dark shoes. A black or brown cozy sweater would look amazing with black or brown leather boots. You could also wear dark ballet flats or ankle booties. I recommend wearing a leather jacket or peacoat with a chunky scarf to finish the look.
When the weather gets warmer however, you can rock a feminine white blouse or a natural colored one. Roll up the bottoms then throw on a pair of ballet flats or sandals and your outfit is perfect for spring. To spice up the look add some silver or gold jewelry (whatever works with your outfit) and your set.
If you're a little more daring you can wear a printed top that works with the color of your jeans.
