What goes around definitely comes around and fashion's spin cycle is running full speed. Denim styles from the last century have caught up to us again, but designers are offering a few savvy updates to make sure they aren't condemned to repeat them.

- Dust Bowl girls wore overalls to cover up and keep clean. Today's city girl isn't afraid to get a little messy.

- A symbol of Fifties antiestablishment, dark wash jeans are also appropriate for today's rebel without a cause.

- Hold the flash, keep the flare. One of today's most popular silhouettes channels the disco era.

- The no-fuss, cool-kid twist on acid-washed and distressed looks assures that they won't fade away.
