There's no easier fashion foundation than a great pair of jeans. Find some you love, and you'll wear them over and over—winter and summer, year after year, with absolutely everything. But as tried-and-true as your most perennial pair may be, there's always room in your closet for more. Colored, printed and textured denim is here to stay, and it's time to put candy-hued, bold-printed, and wax-coated styles in heavy rotation along with all your light- and dark-wash favorites. Just in time for jeans season, check out 20 pairs we love.
