Dark-wash denim is a classic, but '90s and '00s styles have been popping on the runways, such as grunge styles at 3.1 Phillip Lim and Dries Van Noten, said Amy Creyer of the Chicago Street Style blog. "Destroyed jeans, like the Britney era, without a doubt [will be in style] because of the whole obsession now with the '90s." Azeeza Khan, designer of local women's line Atelier Azza, adds that "denim on denim, even overalls, are making a comeback in cooler ways." One exception: Wax-coated denim, a style was all over stores last fall. "It does have that faux-leather look, but ... it has no staying power in your closet." Ulaszek said.
