For the past three decades, the denim star has continued to rise. But has the denim revolution reached its peak?

According to fashion writer Hadley Freeman, denim is done. Of course, jeans will always be a wardrobe staple, but Freeman believes that they "won't generate anywhere near the excitement that they have for the past half decade." In her explanation of the denim demise, Freeman points to consumer fatigue, overexposure, and a lack of ingenuity on the design end as the principle reasons that jeans have had their day in the sun.

In place of jeans, Freeman also predicts that tights and leggings will continue to grow as an alternative to denim.
