Trending: Printed Denim

It’s all about denim this spring. In addition to the rainbow of colored denim on the streets, designers have kicked it up a notch with printed denim. Animal and reptile, floral and flowered, ikat and houndstooth, lace-patterned and art-inspired (if that’s not enough, there are dots, spots, and stripes, too). Pick your pattern and play with it, adding a more subdued top and accessories to complete a star-studded outfit like Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s.

1. Current/Elliott The Stiletto Cropped Printed Low-rise Skinny Jean ($214)
Ease into the trend with a rosy floral print. Faded pink roses and green leaves pair well with a blush-colored top or creamy knit, tan suede flat, and a denim jacket.

2. Rich & Skinny Legacy Jeans ($165)
Sassy in snakeskin. Ideal for evening, these gray-hued python printed jeans look hot with a black leather biker jacket and your favorite booties. Dress them down for day with moto boots and a slouchy tee.

3. Rag & Bone Goetz Printed Mid-rise Skinny Jean ($253)
Patterned after art, these graphic jeans were inspired by a private collection of contemporary art in Munich. Pair with a warm, neutral top and pumps or cool blue tank and sandals.

4. AG Adriano Goldschmied The Stilt in Ikat Blue ($185)
Not just hot in the world of decor, ikat has taken the fashion world by storm. Faded zig zags in graduated shades of blue are begging for wedges and a floppy hat for resort.

5. 7 For All Mankind Skinny in Garden Party ($189)
Already spotted on Jessica Alba, 7 For All Mankind’s skinnies show that florals can be bold. Shades of fushia, teal, and emerald come together for a garden party, indeed.

6. Dolce & Gabbana Lace Print Low-rise Skinny Jeans ($157)
Not your grandma’s lace. These more sophisticated skinnies look fabulous with a crisp button down and slim black clutch. Stretch denim provides the perfect fit.

7. J Brand Houndstooth Skinny Jeans ($229)
Preppy print. J Brand’s tone-on-tone skinnies feature faux pockets for a skin-tight fit without any frump. Cropped and ready to rock, spin them preppy or funky depending on your personal style.
