American Folk Tale: Denim

American Folk Tale:  Denim for Girls

Denim is the staple of our wardrobes.  Literally the fabric of our lives.  Whether we choose it for durability, for style, for simplicity:  denim is the American favorite.  More than ever, denim is inserting itself into every corner of fashion, juxtaposed against chiffon and silk, paired with soft florals, studded, shredded, ruffled.  We love our denim.

There are so many new ways to wear denim, you can put anything together – if there’s denim in there, it’s an outfit!  No longer just the companion to tees and work shirts, denim blends with twills and canvas, finding itself ruffled, torn and twisted and in all the colors of the rainbow.  Or create a soft country look with a floral print.  Or toughen it up with studs and grommets.  Or glam it out with wide seams and crystals.  The key is to create contrast – denim is the grunge side.  The flip side highlights denim’s durability by being feminine, fragile and sweet.  Or highlights its practicality by being outrageous, rebellious and loud.
