Lighten Up! 10 Denim Outfits That Won't Leave You Blue

Our love affair with denim runs deep. Distressed, dark-rinse, printed — you name it, we've worn it...many times over. It's the unsung hero of our off-duty wardrobe (and, occasionally, our 9-to-5 attire, too). Come warmer weather, though, we'd be lying if we said we didn't play favorites with our soft washes and chambrays.
If you're wary of ditching dark denim this spring, you needn't worry. We've got 10 perfect outfits — courtesy of Miley Cyrus, Solange Knowles, Jamie King, and more — that'll have you whipping out faded, lightweight styles in spades. Click through to see how these ladies don their baby blues, and shop similar pieces. Allow us to take your jean game over to the dark light side.
