SOLD Design Lab is busting out their colored jeans for spring, but what really caught our eye are some of their beautiful floral, tie-dye and tribal denim shorts. If you’re not particularly a fan of these trends, you might reconsider, as SOLD put a delicate hand on incorporating these motifs into their collection. And if you’d prefer to wear your trends on top, their blue and pastel jeans selection (check out their version of a mint green denim!) is pretty solid as well. Using denim as a canvas to create something vibrant, colorful and fun to wear for those gorgeous summer days ticks off the “cool jeans” list in our book.

Denim brand Current/Elliott has taken colored jeans to a new level for Spring 2012 by offering leopard prints and florals in their popular Stiletto low-rise skinny jeans fit. The neon-striped and floral prints are sold out and hard to find online, but you can find the leopard print jeans at many online retailers. From a faded “dusty peach” to “petal-pink” to “mint,” you can explore the wild side of color in these easy-on-the-eyes pastel hues. However, if you are really in love with a more traditional leopard jean, Current/Elliott also has the reddish “fig,” black, gray and camel colored leopard jeans, denim skirts and jacket. Pair your leopard pastel jeans with black booties or a neutral colored shoe, and you’re ready to rock.
You can find a selection of Current/Elliott’s Stilt Leopard skinny jeans at REVOLVE Clothing online and Net-a-Porter online.

This spring, expect to see stylish people not only rocking colored jeans, but pastel snakeskin print jeans, thanks to TEXTILE Elizabeth & James. The denim-driven brand offshoot of the more runway-friendly Elizabeth & James fashion label is daring fashionistas to go boldly beyond solid neons (check out their pre-Spring neon capsule collection at Shopbop) and basic five-pocket jeans. Fancy a psychedelic kaleidoscope print? Last season’s nod to the ’70s continues somewhat; however, the collection has a larger ’80s fashion presence: skinny ankle jeans, pastel denim and a boyish denim overall. If you’re still in love with their bell bottom jeans, TEXTILE will have a juicier version to appease you. Check out the lookbook and take it all in.

Fashion in the 80s don’t stay in the 80s. As much as some of us here at Denim Therapy would prefer to forget that decade (pimples, parachute pants, awkward social scenarios), Hysteric Glamour‘s Fall-Winter 2011 lookbook made all those
high school junior high memories rush back. At least, the fun ’80s fashion memories. You think Boyfriend jeans are just for the ladies? In this lookbook, the male and female models are swapping the printed boyfriend jean. And certainly, Hysteric Glamour is not shy about colors and patterns. Check out the colorful graphic print jeans and copious amounts of merit badge-like patches on military and disco-Letterman style jackets. Because you know, girls (and boys) just wanna have fun.
