Over the past year or so, we’ve seen a lot of denim-on-denim looks. From the runway to the street, everyone is trying this double denim trend. If you remember Karl Lagerfeld’s resort 2013 collection for Chanel from last year, then you are well familiarized with all of the trends that have spawned from it. Creepers, pastels and metallics are among the most memorable bits of the show, but Mr. Lagerfeld also showed little denim suits, jackets and dresses. Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren, D&G and Chloé have also all shown denim-on-denim looks in past runway shows.
What does all of this denim mean for us? Well, for starters, we all have a great pair of jeans and a denim jacket, so it won’t cost us a thing. Whether you’re a Fashionista or a Fashionisto, all you have to do is give this trend a try by pairing the jacket and jeans with a basic white T-shirt and boots or Converse All-Stars. If you want to dress it up, Fashionistas, don’t be afraid to add a pair of sleek heels for a casual yet sexy daytime look.
This week’s Fashionisto tried out the trend by playing with different washes. He paired some dark wash jeans with a lighter washed chambray button-down that he layered over a black and white stars and stripes tank. He threw on a hooded wool sweater and some neutral lace-up boots to complete the on-trend ensemble. This spring, you won’t need much to look chic. Just shop your wardrobe for your best denim pieces and play them up with some great accessories!
