Style Advice of the Week

Denim on denim; one of the most feared (but fierce) trends on the street style scene. Only to be worn with a perfectly executed ensemble, this ’70s fad has made a groovy comeback in the fashion world.

This time traveling trend flows seamlessly through a variety of outfit combinations. The most popular and flattering version being a lighter denim button-down paired with dark wash jeans. This outfit pair is perfect because it can be dressed up or down in so many different ways!

Take some style cues from this Fashionisto. He looks cool and laid back with the light-on-top, dark-on-bottom combination. This stylish student keeps the rest of his look simple, with a brown leather belt and tan oxfords. The neutral colors keep the pieces looking clean, structured and put together. For Fashionistos, minimalism is important in ensuring the outfit doesn’t get too busy. Also, try trading the button-down for a lighter wash jean jacket over a white T-shirt with super-dark jeans on bottom like this.

For the ladies, try throwing a cute statement necklace over a button-down to add a little glitz to the look while keeping other accessories to a minimum. Or go laid back in distressed boyfriend jeans with the light denim top, executed flawlessly here. If you’re looking to amp it up even further, do a longer denim skirt on bottom a la Rihanna.

Denim on denim can be used in such a wide variety of styles. Don’t be afraid to mix and match until you find the perfect denim duo for you!
