Technicolor denim has been trending for months, but celebs are taking the eye-catching look one step further with patterned jeans. From look-at-me leopard to fun florals, the patterened denim trend is in full swing for spring. Don’t have a stylist? Let Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Hilary Rhoda, and Miranda Kerr show you how to wear patterned denim.
Tip #1: Floral jeans are a blooming trend for spring
Celebs can’t get enough of florals, and now the trend has found its way to their jeans. Jenna Dewan-Tatum was spotted looking ready for spring in jeans with a pretty flower pattern. She styled her denim by tucking in a breezy gray tee and pairing the look with pastel accessories. Her panama hat finishes the sunny look.

Tip #2: Punch up black basics with leopard denim
Actress Hilary Rhoda chose the perfect ensemble for a screening of Young Adult: her leopard print jeans by Current/Elliott, a celeb favorite, added a young and feisty element to her more grown-up black silk blouse, blazer, and pointed toe pumps. Leopard can be loud, but by pairing her pants with basic black pieces, Rhoda kept the outfit understated. Her camel-colored knit circle scarf tied the look together.

Tip #3: Switch out your tired denim for leopard blue jeans
Not ready to go bold? Try leopard print denim in a traditional blue shade. At first glance Miranda Kerr’s outfit may seem dull, but a closer look at the pattern on her Current/Elliot jeans shows the model’s wild side. Pair your leopard blue jeans with a cropped jacket like Kerr’s Dries Van Noten number and play with color by stashing your stuff in a burgundy tote (Kerr’s is by Celine).
