5 Jeans for Spring & How to Wear 'Em

From the super-flared to the super-skinny to everything in between, pretty much every style of denim is in right now! The good news? You already have most of these styles in your wardrobe. Here are some ideas for how to rock five denim trends for spring 2011!

1. Flares: Flares are back in style in a big way! In fact, the bigger the better when it comes to the size of the “bell.” Rock this exaggerated look with a jacket and some heels which will elongate your legs and look really on-trend!
