How to Wear It: Denim Designs for Every Trend

Summer style has been defined by the reinvention of fashion fads. Whether you're embracing the carefree spirit of the disco era or channeling the simple times of the 1950s, there's a denim design to help take you back.

See how some of Hollywood's hottest stars interpret these trends to make what's old new again.

Denim Designs for Every Trend

Bringin' Da Funk

Go retro with latest version of the 1970s signature jean: the bell bottom. The extreme flare is enhanced by a tighter fit at the thighs, while the waistband sits comfortably on hips. Bring your pair of flares into the 21st century with wood platform wedges and a frilly floral halter, as demonstrated by "90210" star AnnaLynne McCord.

The Cool Kids

Shake, rattle and roll in a pair of skinny jeans! Evocative of denim worn during the Nifty Fifties, this slim-fitting style hugs curves from top to bottom, emphasizing all of your ladylike assets. Follow actress Amy Smart's lead, and make your cigarette pants modern by pairing them with a diaphanous, sleeveless blouse and nude pumps. Tekla shoes and Slender Cigarette jeans available at

Get It Straight

This season's straight-leg denim is a fresh variation of the boyfriend jean. More fitted than a flare, but less fitted than a cigarette, the slim, streamlined silhouette balances your shape. Emulate Selena Gomez's sassy ensemble and update your sharp denim with a sequined top and velvety ankle bootie. Connie shoes and Super Straight jeans available at

A Cut Above

Perhaps the most classic and versatile of all the denim designs, the boot cut shape flatters all body types. Fitted slightly at the thighs, this style boasts a wider leg opening that falls evenly from the knee, so you always look flawless. Shift seamlessly from work to play with boot cut denim, a crisp button-down and dark platforms, as seen on Zoe Saldana. Neal shoes and Basic Boot jeans available at
