It's the fashion faux pas you only thought your mum forced on you as an 80's child so she could laugh at the pictures now, but its back for Spring/Summer 2010 with a veangence!
I was pretty wary at first but it worked for me by balancing dark and light denim and colour matching my accessories. I went for dark denim jeggings with a light denim shirt from topshop. I added a black wasit belt, black boots and a black Mulberry Bayswater.......and I quite liked the overall look. Don't be afraid to try it! Here are some examples... (it works for guys too!)
