We’ve all seen some denim disasters in our time. Here’s a compilation of rules to follow to ensure you aren’t the denim eyesore in the room. I’ve added some suggestions in case you discover you have made a major fashion faux pas.

Are your jeans so acid-washed they belong in an ’80s music video? Do the tapered legs make you look like a walking ice cream cone? Could your waistband double as a push-up bra?

There’s good news for muffins! Go mid-rise! Styles like Diesel Ronhar Bootcut Jeans in Medium Wash will keep your belly from bulging.

WOW!!! I haven’t seen Drew Barrymore with her hair this blond in a looooong time. Ms. Barrymore looks SWEEEET! I love the entire look, from the hair to the Judas Priest tee to the booties to the J Brand skinnies. Although I do think her jeans look a little too big. But overall, it’s mega cute!
