Is there a wardrobe staple more perennial than denim? Its universal appeal has never been more important than it is for spring 2014. On the runway, it took the form of dresses, skirts, and even suits; in real life, it’s been printed, colored, and layered in a million different ways. “There is something so comfortable and personal about denim,” says Elle market editor Jade Frampton, “that you can find a way to dress it up or down to fit your style.” Her preferred look? J Brand skinnies and chic white accessories. Get inspired, then shop the sale below to make denim 2.0 totally your own this season.
Eclectic, weekend-worthy pieces that will liven up any wardrobe.
