Denim trends are wide open this year; so don't feel pressured into any one style. Stick to whatever makes you feel the most comfortable, whether it's skinny jeans, baggy boyfriend jeans, boot-cut, tie-dye, destroyed—you name it. If you're not sure how to rock your favorite denim, celebrities (and their stylists) are great for giving us ideas on how to make certain trends work. Nobody does the boyfriend jean look better than Jessica Alba, and why not take cues from Nicole Richie when it comes to being hippie chic? Check out our roundup of celebrities and their denim, and be sure to take notes.
