Are consumers getting tired of jeans? One retail analyst thinks so. Changing the color and fit used to be enough to prompt shoppers to go out and buy something new, but "the lack of any real innovation in jeans has created consumer fatigue," Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, says in a blog post today. Sales of jeans, which performed well through the recession, fell 5 percent for the year ending in March, Cohen says, with declines of 4 percent for men's jeans, 5 percent for women's and 10 percent for kids.

Just when women had shaken off the last vestiges of anxiety over the skinny jean, the sado-fashionistic denim masterminds came up with the jegging — a creation so skin-tight, so utterly form-fitting, it makes the skinny jean look almost baggy in comparison. The jegging: part jeans, part legging. Entirely responsible for any recent runs on Weight Watchers. Though denim leggings appeared at fashion-forward shops last fall, it's only this spring that they slipped into the mainstream, available in upscale boutiques for upward of $200, mall stores such as J Crew, and in discount department stores for less than $20. Young Hollywood celebrities, including Blake Lively, Lauren Conrad, Paris Hilton and Jessica Alba, have all been spotted and photographed in jeggings.

Started in 1996, Denim Day is a national fundraising effort for which people pay a small fee to have a casual dress day at work. The proceeds benefit the fight against breast cancer. "It seemed like a perfect service learning activity," said Campasino, who has been a mathematics teacher at Fallston High for the past 11 years. "And it involved something that is important to me. My mother is a breast cancer survivor."
