Shredded denim is already awesome, but what if the denim was also as colorful as your favorite tie-dye tank top? If that turns you on, you’re in luck. It seems like, in addition to rainbow dip-dyed denim, dying destroyed denim fibers near the area of destruction is becoming a trend. We recommend going neutral with the top you pair this with: think black, white, or pastels. But hey, who says you can’t go totally nuts one night and pair these with a neon yellow bikini top?

Last time we previewed d.brand’s SS13 collection we were frolicking through PROJECT NY. Now the line is ready to roll, and you can see it in action in this gorgeous lookbook full of pastel colored denim and casual-cool separates. We’re all over the gradient bleached denim and cuffed orange shorts, but the mint green jeans are the clear winners.
At the CLOSED spring 2013 preview, a few scrumptious themes became evident as soon as we entered the showroom: pastels are making a big come back, hand-in-hand with rock’n'roll chic. Think acid wash and bleached-out jeans, leather jackets in candy hues, and denim vests with just the right amount of rough-up. Join us in marking our calendars for spring and eagerly awaiting the release of the intensely stylish selection below.
Check out CLOSED for your pastels, prints, and artistic washes this spring.

Ragged Priest‘s latest lookbook offering hypes up three of our favorite things in the world: the beach, pastels, and torn up jeans. Dreamy mermaid hair and sultry glares set the mood for dip-dye pastel knits and tie-dye denim shorts reminiscent of Mister Softee’s ice cream menu—delicious! Shop Ragged Priest and get your summer hued rock’n'roll on ASAP.
We’re always on the lookout for new ways to style the latest denim trends. This season is all about pastels, so if you’re wondering how to style aqua jeans in pastel hues, take notice. When paired with cream and white neutrals on top, the jeans stay cool and refreshing. To avoid an overly soft look (if that’s not your thing), ground your outfit in strong black accessories, like Zina did here.
Nothing says summer like the smell of sunscreen, hot asphalt, and smoke from the barbeque. Maybe you’re not a fan of the first two scents, but the third? It’s the sign of good food, good company, and good times. For all the BBQs you’re sure to attend this summer—from now on through the Fourth of July to Labor Day—we have plenty of suggestions. Go for a relaxed look with loose-fitting cuffed jeans and a lightweight tee, wear an adorable floral dress for a pop of color underneath a denim vest, or pair your on-trend pastel denim shorts with equally sweet hues. Just don’t spill the ketchup.
Ready for summer? Not if you haven’t properly stocked up on pastel denim! We know the variety available is now pretty much ridiculous, with brands cashing in on (what we’d consider) one of the most fun trends in denim history, but we’ll give it to you straight: what to buy, what to wear, and what will turn heads. Check out our ultimate pastel denim shopping guide below.
