most of us get the chance to relive our youth due to the cyclical nature of what's considered cool.

While denim shirts never went out of fashion it's over 20 years since they have been on the money in the style stakes - I'm talking back in the day when it was still a novelty to get sent Levis from the States.

But even then there was something awkward about the starched natured of the denim, or maybe we were just really awkward in our own skins and it showed no matter what label we wore.

Versatile

Whatever the reason, denim seems more relaxed to me now. Some of the pictured celebs have tucked their denim in - while others leave the shirt hanging out. But it still falls beautifully regardless, which makes it seem more versatile.

There isn't a trend that Olivia Palermo can't seem to add a twist to, and teaming a regular-looking denim shirt with a smart trouser suit is a really nice take on how to wear this little gem.

On the other end of the spectrum Charlize Theron shows all the busy mums how this fashion item can work on a more practical level.

And of course it is also a great cover-up - see actress Jenna Dewan wearing hers over a long skirt, off-set by a fringed bag.
