The allure of an amazing pair of jeans is indisputable. Even the incomparable Yves Saint Laurent was humbled before their transcendent power and praised their spectacular nonchalance. While Mr. Saint Laurent was referring to jeans in their most simple and unembellished form, we think he’d appreciate the latest crop of denim looks, as they’re thoroughly modern and marvelous too!
One thing is for certain: this spring is a great denim season, stuffed with lots of amazing options. The new offerings run the gamut from grungy to the embodiment of grown-up sophistication, but nevertheless, we managed to narrow it down to our Top Five. Of course you can keep wearing your beloved classics, but if you want to ramp up your spring wardrobe, check out these runway-inspired styles in all the latest washes and silhouettes!

So what happened to the bleached out, tie-dyed, terracotta, paint-splashed jeans that were presented at Fashion Weeks a few months back? Perhaps, with the recession becoming “official” after those fashion shows, the folks at Who What Wear are putting those riskier, splashier choices behind for jeans that will last longer, from season to season. Yes, you may spend close to $200 on one pair of jeans, but you’ll likely wear them with everything for the next four fashion cycles. Then, consumers could update their looks by focusing more on less expensive accessories and cosmetics. A spring 2009 Chanel lipstick for $34, I’ll take it!
