Denim trends: Mixing, matching and breaking rules?!?

Denimdress Everywhere I look right now, I'm seeing denim. Trends are all about breaking the old rules. Your beloved old jean jacket? Go ahead, pair it with jeans. Or a hot denim dress. And that Levi's inspired purse or wedges!

What's up with high fashion's rodeo high?

Style mags like Elle are full of advice on how to pull off denim on denim. (Other style-watchers caution that today's all-denim trends are going too far.)

Denimtop What's a girl to do?

Proceed with caution, that's my plan. I like the polished look of denim dresses and skirts, which promise the comfort and versatility of trouser jeans, plus easy washing! But pairing jeans, a bag AND a denim shirt or jacket isn't so much my thing, unless I'm trying to pack light for a summer vacation. 

If your outfit feels like a retro Calvin Klein commercial, I'd just say no. What's your take on the new denim trends?
