Originating hundreds of years ago in Genoa, Italy, and later adopted by nineteenth century California gold rushers, denim is now a daily staple for everyone from toddlers to trendsetters. For decades, variations on basic blue jeans have tempted shoppers, but rarely have we seen such a creative boom in the category as is occurring this spring.
With solid colored jeans already de rigueur for any fashion-forward wardrobe, today we’ll spotlight a multitude of striking graphic patterns and prints. Eye-catching and statement-making, they are available at a variety of price points.
Are you brave enough to rock these tricky trousers? Retailers are willing to bet “yes”, having invested heavily in the trend this season. The good news is, all indications point to many of these daring denim pieces remaining right on point through the fall.
Rag & Bone/JEAN’s exclusive midrise color-block design for Intermix ($255) is selling out fast.
Current/Elliot flashes back to the ‘70s with this “Moonbeam” stretch jean ($198).
Meanwhile, Citizens Of Humanity goes romantic with a floral-print, high waist roll-up ($189).
J Brand’s tie-dyed skinnnies ($198) would prove a surprisingly versatile wardrobe addition.
Likewise, an affordable leopard variation from Target ($22.99) would function as a new-school neutral.
Finally, Urban Outfitters’ striped, skin-tight pair ($65) is anything but timid.
