Colored Denim: Totally '80's, Totally Rad!

There's no better season than summer to add a splash of color to your outfit, so why not choose an eye-popping pair of colored jeans or shorts? This is a great way to embrace summer style without breaking the bank on bold accessories and tops. All you need is that one color to turn up the heat on your outfit's hue.

Jessica Alba is a fan of the colored denim look while running around town. She managed to turn what would have been a rather blah outfit into a stylish one that could easily transition from day to night.

Rihanna has no fear when it comes to fashion. Here she is pictured wearing a bold yellow jean with a great cheetah printed top. The combined look is eye-catching, but not overwhelming.

Anna Kendrick looks super chic in these green pants paired with a sheer blazer. This is definitely a men’s inspired look that still portrays femininity. This specific color of jean could be color blocked with an orange, lavender, or pink top for daytime.

Sarah Jessica Parker is known throughout the world as an influential woman of style. Here, she sports red jeans with a light, lavender tee for running errands. She manages to look trendy while out-and-about even though her outfit is much more casual than we're used to seeing her.

Chris Brown performs in a pair of aqua-colored jeans that could be worn with just about any outfit. It doesn't matter if you pair them with a t-shirt and sneakers or an oxford and blazer, you'll transform the look into something more appropriate summer color-wise.

Kanye West has a number of reputations but one of the most accurate seems to be his love for making bold outfit choices. So it would only be appropriate for him to be seen in a pair of bold colored jeans. Here he's dressed them down with a hoodie, but just like Kendrick's outfit above, we see that this color jean could be easily dressed up.

What better color denim for summer than technically a non-color? Here, Justin Bieber busts a move in white jeans that he's accented with little additional color. White jeans for the summer can be considered a closet staple, just be sure to scotch guard them to avoid any accidental stains!

You can find colored jeans just about anywhere these days, from Forever 21 to Nordstrom. Expect this 80's trend to keep on truckin' through to the Fall.

Or if you want to try your hand at dyeing your own denim, then this is for hue.
