Denim in Vogue.....and in Laura's Style

Denim in Vogue.......
{Michaela Bercu for Vogue. November 1988}
..........and in Laura's Style
Do you think editor in chief of  American Vogue, Anna Wintour, made it okay to mix denim with more refined garments after she paired a Christian Lacroix sweater with a pair of acid washed jeans on the November 1988 cover of Vogue? Model, Michaela Bercu, (very top photo) was too chubby to fit into the matching Lacroix skirt. (Btw, she was prego. The model that is;) So, does Anna Wintour get the credit for the mix and match look, or is this something that had been going on for years? Maybe she gets the credit for being brave enough to mix a $2000 designer sweater with a $50 pair of jeans and maybe she gets the credit for putting it on the cover of Vogue. But I believe that women who love fashion have been mixing and matching for years. I for one love denim. There is just something about putting something rough with something smooth, something dull with something shiny and something old with something new. Denim brings out the best in all of those smooth, shiny and new things. 

Here is a look at a few of Laura's Style denim mix and match looks through the years:

Never be afraid to wear your "dressed up" items with denim. You know what they say. Opposites attract! Now go mix it up!
