Check out our round-up of the best denim trends for spring/summer 2012 so you can stay in style this season.

Bold and brightly coloured jeans

Nothing says spring or summer quite like bold and bright colours! And when it comes to denim trends for 2012, this couldn't be more true. Colourful jeans in a rainbow of shades are all in style. With the neon trend making waves (see Nail DIY: neon polka dot nail art) neon shades are also in. You can also keep things fun and fruity by getting a pair of jeans to showcase the citrus fashion trend (learn more in Citrus-coloured fashion).

Pastel jeans are another hit denim trend for spring/summer 2012

Remember to pair your pastel jeans with a longer length top if you're pearshaped or you could end up looking larger.
