7 Alternatives To Skinny Blue Jeans (PHOTOS)

Stylelist Blogger Network member Geri Hirsch of Because I'm Addicted was in a rush and rather than grabbing standard skinny jeans, reached for her new, tie-dyed denim. Why the statement slacks over the wardrobe staple? She explains, "even though they are still in fact jeans, they read as 'I put some effort into this.'"

Geri's approach to denim dressing is a trend we noticed around the Stylelist Blogger Network. Overalls, chambray shirts and ultra-flared trousers all offered a diverse take on a classic trend.

Take a look at 7 denim alternatives to blue skinny jeans in the slideshow below -- one for each day of the week! -- and tell us, what is the one denim item you can't live without?
