Just like history, fashion repeats itself; and much like shoulder pads and high-waist pants, wearing denim-on-denim is now a trending style that makes your mom feel really cool for rocking it in her prime. We all remember the days when sporting a fanny pack, wrapping your jacket around your waist or wearing denim-on-denim was an unthinkable fashion crime and social suicide. But times have changed, and you better get a new watch — maybe even one of these once dorky digital ones from American Apparel (which happen to be totally in!).
This Fashionista is sweetly styled in a denim-on-denim ensemble, and absolutely rocks it. She has a jean jacket worn over a denim shirt that she cuffed together at the sleeves, which perfectly pulls the two pieces together. Her sequin shorts are amazing and add a city-chic feel to her down-to-earth look. Jean jackets and demin shirts are popping up everywhere and are such versatile pieces — everything from city-chic, western flare, bohemian or grunge, denim is an easy style to work with. Cutoff jean shorts and sleeveless jean vests are a very popular summer trend and perfect staple pieces for pulling off this look.
Especially during fall 2013, denim-on-denim will be a very cool look to experiment with. As this Fashionista instinctively knew, when creating an outfit it is important to match with two different shades of denim; you don’t want to look like your sporting a jean jumpsuit. However, I bite my tongue when I say that because nowadays, you honestly never know what could be cool and trendy. So make your mama proud and try out this look! To anyone who is musically inclined, please make a “Racks” remix by YC, “We got denim on denim on denim…Leggo!” Just thinking out loud here.
