I know that "asking for a friend" insinuates that you are asking for yourself, but I can assure you that this time, I actually am asking for a friend. The other day, a friend of mine asked whether or not colored jeans are trending because she had seen a few online at her go-to retailers. As I quickly reminisced on the mint-colored skinny jeans I proudly strutted in high school, I started to wonder, Wait… should I have kept those?
Much (and I mean much) to my surprise, I discovered that retailers and designers from Zara to Rachel Comey to Simon Miller all currently have multiple pairs of colored jeans out in the marketplace. I even came across an Acne Studios pair. Am I ready for their return? Are you? The good news is, you don't have to decide right this second, but in case you're curious, I rounded up the best colored jeans, period, for you to shop. And If you've stayed a devoted fan of colored jeans all along, not to worry, you can simply think of this roundup as the refresh your closet needs this season.
