Ahh, the difficult task of wearing denim with denim. When I think about denim outfits, I immediately have a fever dream of the 2001 American Music Awards when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears wore matching denim ensembles that just screamed, “throw bleach on me and forget me in the dryer.”
Thankfully denim has come a LONG way and can be one of your hottest fashion pieces this season.

Macy’s mstylelab and style maven Nikki Phillippi have teamed up for the webseries, “Style Sessions” and this week are focusing on denim trends and how to make the most out of your denim jeans, colored denim and chambray tops.
The Chambray Top: Nikki pairs a tie-dyed Chambray top with a pair of black leggings and converse sneakers for a look that is relaxed and fun. Celebs I can see rocking this look include Rihanna, Lauren Conrad, or Lindsay Lohan. It’s low-key without looking sloppy.
Distressed Denim: Distressed denim isn’t just for rockers. You too can wear ripped, faded, and torn jeans and look fashionable rock. Nikki’s pairs hers with a studded black tee for a glam-rock appeal. I could see Miley Cyrus, J.Lo, or Demi Lovato doing this look right.
Colored Denim: Wearing colored denim jeans is a great way to turn “just throw on some jeans” into a fashion statement. Nikki is wearing fuchsia denim, which makes it more girly and to keep the focus on the pants, she paired it with a black top, a black biker jacket and some flat boots. It’s edgy but still feminine with the pop of color. Stars that could make this look good are Kim Kardashian, Cameron Diaz or Selena Gomez.
