Though we're putting away our sheer tops and midriff-baring shirts in anticipation of cooler weather, there's one spring trend we'll continue to wear well into fall: printed jeans! While spring's printed denim was a riot of bright, bold patterns (graffiti prints, polka dots), fall brings us a subtler color palette and more restrained, sophisticated prints (lace, paisley). These jeans are as versatile as their solid-hued counterparts--just treat them as you would your standard pair of skinnies! Read on to see the printed denim picks we think you should Go Buy Now.On The Street
For inspiration, look no further than Kate Bosworth's fresh way of wearing printed denim! While running errands in Hollywood earlier this summer, the actress balanced Current/Elliott's The Floral Stiletto Skinny Jeans ($99) in Lake Ditsy with a slouchy gray sweater. She added Jason Wu's structured Daphne Satchel ($1875) in Ivory and Isabel Marant Handy Leather Wedge Sandals ($675) into the mix, but kept accessories to a minimum for understated daytime polish.
