So no matter where i go these days colored denim has been popping up everywhere on the streets, at school, Tumblr, Pintrest, Twitter, you name it. But with so many retailers jumping on the colored jeans bandwagon it was hard to choose which ones I liked ( fit, color, material, quality ) and ultimately how much was I willing to spend on a pair of pants that were going to be put in storage come the fall. So here it is 5 different pairs of denim without killing your wallet.

1. American Eagle (44.50) – These out of all the other ones has the best color choices, including a dusty rose color, which compared to other retailers who sell it comes down to be the cheapest but still offering a great product. They have had these since spring started but ran out almost within the first few weeks, finally after a month they have restocked, so get them fast!

2. Tobi ($68.00  -47.00) – Oh how I love Tobi, the site is defiantly something to check out, these skinny jeans originally 68.00 are now on sale for 47.00 and come in a plethora of colors.

 3. Zara ( $49.90) – They only come in a few colors online, but if you are fortunate enough to get into a store check it out the last time I went in they had a whole array of pastels and they were cheeper.

4. Target ($22.99) – Who doesn’t like to find a good steal from Target and selling at $22.99 these jeans are defiantly one of them. I was skeptical about these being so cheep but when one of my friends highly recommended them saying they are just about the most comfortable pair of jeans she has ever worn, I had to check them out.

5. Alloy ( $29.90-34.90) – Im not so familiar with Alloy but they have an extremely detailed customer rating system which is great when you are shopping online. This particular pair only comes in 4 colors but they also offer other colored jeans as well.

Oh peplum how I just don’t like you very much, but like or dislike this has been seen everywhere from on the runway to the streets. Tops, Dresses, Skirts it seems like everyone is adding peplum, and for girls unlike me who have not been blessed with curves, this could work for you, in fact i encourage it.

What is spring without pastels, and this spring is no different, these muted colors have popped up everywhere on and off the runway. Seen in collections from Ralph Lauren, Cloé, Phillip Lim, Mulberry, and much more, Spring 2012 seems to be much more saturated in these light colors than perhaps past seasons.

Peach, Lavender, and Soft Coral are just a few of these colors that are now accessible to the mass market, you can walk into any retail store these days and get ahold of something that has been manufactured in these popular hues. Going to FIT ( with perhaps a more daring crowd of individuals) I have seen girls putting all these colors together in one outfit, and why not? However if you are more hesitant about engulfing yourself in this seasons color trend, here are a few tips on how to jump on the bandwagon conservatively:

1. Accessorize: you don’t need to dress head to toe in these colors, accessories are the best way to incorporate them into your wardrobe; perhaps a pair of sunglasses, a bag, or jewelry.

2. Colored Jeans: this trend is another topic in its own, but matching a pair of pastel jeans with a simple top makes you look trendy but classy.

3. Shoes: Like accessories shoes is an easy transition, a colorful pair of flats or as the weather gets warmer, sandals, will brighten up whatever you are wearing.

4. Paint it on: I don’t quite know how to categorize this but if you really don’t want to commit to this trend then you can always paint your nails one of these colors, these days Essie makes just about any color out there, and are sold in just about any convenience or beauty store.
