Now Trending: Printed Denim

Have you yet experimented with the printed denim trend? If not, here's some perfectly printed inspiration for you!

Bold pant colors have been widely spotted this season, but a few celebrity style mavens are branching off and adding a pattern to the trend.

Model Coca Rocha was seen playfully posing in printed denim at a Hudson party, and actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum was spotted downtown while sporting a subtle floral print.

If you are keen to keep to a classic denim style, but still want to add hint of flash, try wearing denim similar to Miranda Kerr's leopard print jeans (as seen above).

The printed jean trend is clearly a winner, and donning a pair will no doubt cheer up any outfit.

From Rag & Bone to Alexander Wang, designers are always finding new and unique ways to add a touch of extra flair to the staple denim jean.
