You probably saw this coming, but a bevy of spring denim looks are popping up everywhere. Glory be, if more tastefully-done denim (not just chambray) dresses make it out to retailers in the coming months. I’ve already seen some lovely Acne/Lanvin 2010 reveals. Yummers! And, what makes this year different in the world of accessorizing your fave denim looks, is, the shoes aren’t getting any smaller. They may be phasing out large vehicles like The Hummer, but super-sized shoes aren’t going away anytime soon. Haven’t they injured enough girls on the runway yet?
My Pick: Acne/Lanvin 2010 Ruched Shoulder Dress.

Alexander Wang sets the tone, two-tone that is, in faded denim with black goat skin leather sleeves for the coming season’s must have jacket. Dress up washed out denim with black leather for a bad-ass combination of street chic that puts a little attitude into your swagger.
The modern silhouette is a short full skirt or pleated pencil skirt in black leather topped with a faded denim jacket or vest. Turn up the heat in some fun leather and denim two faced jeans and burn both ends in style. For a tough yet polished look pair some moto style jeans with a luxe black leather vest. High/low fashion never looked better!
