With the reemergence of 90s grunge and chambray, it would appear that denim is back on the rise for Spring. However, with scary flashbacks to Britney and Justin and warnings from Zephyr, is an all-denim outfit really the way to go?

The great thing about this look is that denim pieces are fun and playful and can be paired with just about everything. The downside, however, is that this look is tricky to pull off, and doing it wrong can provide a fashion failure of epic proportions.

The key to getting it right is in using different tones of denim. Wearing tones that are too similar to each other without being exactly the same just looks like a mistake. Playing with different weights will keep the look from looking too 90s, as well. For example, try pairing dark denim trousers with a light and lightweight denim blouse. Need more?
