You've undoubtedly seen the work of Keith Haring. During the 1980s, Haring created some of the most recognizable works of graffiti art in New York City, paying special attention to the subway. While today his designs have a reputation for being whimsical, he tackled a number of timely social issues including the crack epidemic, AIDS epidemic, war and peace, sex positivity, and human rights. Haring himself was HIV positive and passed away due to AIDS-related complications in 1990, but he has left an indelible, joyful legacy encouraging people exercise compassion and live together peacefully.

In that vein, Italian-based brand Calzedonia has released a Keith Haring-inspired collection that includes jeans, socks, and tights adorned with Haring's universally recognizable work. This way, whether you're familiar with Haring's art or you're a new fan, you can celebrate his life and work with your outfit. It also helps that this collection is undeniably fun, and is sure to brighten your day the minute you put one of these items on.

Below, check out the (affordable!) items that I'm currently obsessing over.
