Trends always come back again, and in the denim department, one particularly vibrant movement is alive and thriving once more: colored denim. That's right, a spectrum of happy hues and pale pastels are at the forefront of Spring — a nostalgic craze we truly hadn't anticipated returning with such vigor. As these things go, modern renditions prove refreshingly chic, done in a range of fits from voluminous flares to roomy straight legs and ankle-length skinnies (a memorable version we know you dabbled in way back when).

For forward effect, style with of-the-moment pieces like cowboy boots, optic white shoes, or a reworked button-down. If you're feeling emboldened, go monochrome by rocking a single hue head to toe (Danish It girls love this look). Keep an eye out for fresh details, too — raw hems, ultrahigh waists, and '90s-style distressing make for total cool.

Think you're game for the return of colored denim? We plucked 15 pairs spanning the rainbow. Get vivid with it.
