trend tuesday: denim everywhere

For those of you that kept your denim jacket from the 1990s "just in case it comes back," you may be in luck! What started with the chambray shirt (which you know from here that I love) has now become a big trend for this spring. Here are my rules to keep your look modern and to avoid looking like you are dressing up as Kelly Kapowski:

Do mix dark and light denim
Don't pair denims in similar colors

Do wear a denim vest with patterned or colored denim or flowy skirts
Don't revive your denim overalls (especially with one strap unbuckled a la Kriss Kross)

Do buy a lightweight, feminine chambray dress or skirt that hits at or above the knee
Don't wear a thick, heavy, and frayed denim mini (esp if you are older than 21 yrs old)

Do create unexpected combinations with your chambray top by wearing it with something dressy and feminine, like a sequin pencil skirt or lace shorts
Don't resurrect your 1990s buttons with your denim jacket. (Yes, we all know you used to—or still do—love NKOTB)

Don't pair denim in similar colors. JT, you've come a long way!
