Not all denim is created equal and I tend to favor distressed and vintage varieties. I may be too young to remember the last time acid wash was cool, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the sense of nostalgia it gives me. The same goes for bell-bottoms and wide legs, also popular denim styles this year. If you're like me, and your wardrobe is lacking a perfectly worn-in denim jacket or pair of jeans, you can make the most of what you have by mixing your denim with unexpectedly dressy pieces. Pair your favorite jeans with a classy blazer, or throw on a casual chambray shirt with a sleek dress and pumps.
