Denim has a casual yet sophisticated impression in the fashion world for its cut, dye, colour and fabric. Honeycombs, whiskers, stacks, train tracks etc, are just some of the popular denim styles. Outfits like miniskirts, skinny jeans, ripped jeans and other popular denim outfits are delights for fashionistas.

Besides foreign countries, the possession of denim jeans even in Bangladesh marks it as an exuberant outfit choice.
