Denim Diaries

In Designers, Fashion, Trends on March 24, 2010 at 2:34 am

To say that “denim is back” would be an inaccurate statement because its never been just a fleeting trend. Denim has been a fashion staple for decades and it has evolved into a ‘must-have’ textile for many designers, season after season. Though the denim trends have been endless and vary with each decade, one thing’s for sure – the perfect pair of jeans has always, and always will be – a solid investment.

For the Spring/Summer 2010 collections denim ruled the runways. The latest trend — denim on denim. Various designers showcased their own versions of this trend, including Chloe, Ralph Lauren and Dolce & Gabbana.

I know… I know… for years now we’ve been told it’s a fashion “don’t”- but don’t let that discourage you from trying this trend. Of course, we have to keep in mind that as much as we’d like to think of the world as our own personal runway, it’s best to interpret the trends and customize them to fit our daily lives (bring it down a notch).

A perfect example is Reese Witherspoon– she looks trendy, chic and is pulling off the denim-on-denim look effortlessly. (The key is to mix two different shades of denim.) The most flattering combination is a lighter denim on top and a darker wash on the bottom. Not to worry, for those hot summer days coming up just trade in your long jeans for a pair of cut-off jean shorts!
