New denim trends seem to pop up every few months, from the Vetements-inspired uneven hems to the long list of different reworked options. And as temperatures rise around the country — bringing the jeans and T-shirt uniform back to the front of your closet — colored denim is the latest look on our radar.
Looking beyond classic white denim (which finally got the year-round pass it deserves), brands and retailers are turning out colorful denim in every form (and even curated vintage, if you’re looking for a throwback piece). You’ll find everything from jeans and shorts to dresses and tops in really fun, vibrant colors like hot pink, baby blue, teal, yellow, and many more.
If the idea of a stand-out look that doesn’t sacrifice the comfort of denim is of interest to you, here we’ve rounded up 10 of the best pieces available right now, starting at $35.
