How to wear denim in 2010

Denim is the fabric of the youth. It comes in so many guises that it can sometimes be a little overwhelming. While before, you only had to worry about finding the perfect pair of jeans, now there are shirts and skirts and wait for it, dungarees thrown into the mix.
Anything denim is fair game, including shoes and bags but steer clear of hats unless you are trying to emulate Justin Timberlake circa 2001 (remember that Britney moment?)
Double denim is surprisingly a big yes. Designer’s including Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Dsquared and Chloe all showed it in abundance. To keep it modern double up-a denim shirt with jeans; just choose varying shade of denim to create a contrast. Stacked heels or sandals are both great options but go for tan/brown leather rather than black.
The denim shirt is a must have piece. Look for anything oversized. These can be worn over leggings, tucked into skirts or open over t-shirts or dresses for a more relaxed feel.
If you’re keeping it simple and sticking with jeans alone look for anything ‘patchworked’ or distressed. Skirts, dungarees and pinafores are favourites too-anything girly and youthful. Avoid Bodycon at all costs.
As well as the wealth of denim available on the high street charity stores like Oxfam and Enable are great for old-skool denim jackets and hot pants if you’re feeling particularly brave.
