A good pair of jeans are the “little black dress” of casual wear. While jeans come in a wide array of colors, most of the time when someone talks about jeans they are referring to pants made from blue denim fabric manufactured from sturdy cotton. Jeans also come in a variety of cuts and styles. There are low rise, mid-rise, high-rise, straight cut, skinny, boot cut, and numerous other varieties. There are even hybrids that blend jeans with leggings – called “jeggings“. The fashion industry has translated a fabric typically used to make jeans for doing manual labor to designer looks that can be featured on high fashion runways.
Ripped jeans are a popular trend in denim fashion. One of the best things about jeans is that they do not have to be expensive to look nice. The cropped jeans pictured here were purchased at Burlington. They were less than $10.

Shoe manufactures are not going to miss out on the denim trend. Dressing in denim from head to toe is totally possible. The Serendipity sneaker/bootie that was provided to Simply Necessary Inc. blog for review has a denim look. The Secret Celebrity® shoe has memory foam, a wedge heel, and stylish buckles. One of the shoe’s best features is that it has the appearance of a lace-up, but it actually zips on easily.
