How to Make Denim Work for Any Occasion

There used to be a hard rule about denim. You really couldn't wear it to a "fancy occasion". And while we would still urge you not to wear it to a funeral, black tie event, or wedding, you can really make denim work almost anywhere else. Yes, even the office. Here are some way to wear denim to any number of events, circumstances, or places.
