Spring '10 Trends - Denim

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

As promised, today begins our spring '10 coverage of the trends. Please remember, trends are not meant to be added to the wardrobe as staples. I highly suggest you all incorporate one or two items if you really like the trend, but do not go out and buy everything you see. Here's the reason: it's just a trend, in a season or two, it will no longer be in style and you will just end up either giving it away or keeping it in your closet hoping for the day it cycles back around. If you're the type of person who doesn't care and will wear bell-bottoms even though they're not in season, well.......do you. I'll stick with my classic wardrobe staples.

The first trend up for discussion is actually one that does stand the test of time.....DENIM.

Rihanna rocks this fly denim jacket with spike details over a simple LBD to a promotional event in Berlin. Jessica Alba tries out the denim legging look with a pair of Charley 5.0 leggings while out shopping.

Let's check out some denim items we can add to our wardrobe this spring.

denim zipper ruffle thong sandal
These denim thongs have a very affordable price. Cute!

Blank Denim - Women's Skinnie Classique
Studded Pocket $64.00 www.80spurple.com
I love the wash on this pair of skinnies. The slightly distressed look is hot too!

Belted Denim Skirt $15.80 www.forever21.com
Another affordable find from our trusted friends at Forever 21. The skirt is a little "prarie chic" but I think it can be rocked well with a fitted tank and gladiators or chunky heels.

Miley Cyrus & Max Azria Long-Sleeve
Button Down $14.00 www.walmart.com
Man I ran across this shirt and was totally smitten. The dark wash is fab and so is the price!

Nursery Rhyme Dress
Yes you can definitely invest in a denim dress. They always cycle back again (if you're patient enough). This dress has a nice modern look with the shoulder emphasis.

Levi's 535 Skinny Denim Leggings
I cannot wait to try the denim legging look. I can hardly tell them apart from skinnies.

Ice Wash Cut Off Gilet
Yeah, denim vests are back with a vengence. However, I do suggest you scout out the thrift shops if you're really interested in this look.

Black Poppy Genie Jean Bag
If wearing the trendy items is too much for you. Try to add an accessory if curiosity is still bugging you. I like the above bag and it looks waaayyyy better than the designer bags I scouted which feature the denim style.

So are you all planning on trying out the new denim trends???

Stay tuned tomorrow for more spring trends!!!

Au revoir!
