There are a lot of classic combinations out there. Spaghetti and meatballs, bacon and eggs, coffee and doughnuts — the list could go on. Believe me, I could make a list of anything food related go on, but I won’t. When it comes to clothes, there is also a fair share of these timeless combos that will withstand the test of time. Barbara Bui put forth one of my favorites in her spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection: denim on denim.
With an incredibly soft spot in my heart for denim, or what Bui refers to as a “noble material,” I obviously gravitated toward this collection. From frayed to embellished, this material made some chic transformations throughout her collection. Balancing out the shades of blue, pops of orange and the other classic combination — black and white — made an appearance towards the end of the show. Everything about this collection felt tailored, yet casual and wearable.
With a pair of light wash jeans and a similarly light chambray button-down, I found the burger to my fries. Since I, believe it or not, do not own a plain white T-shirt, I turned one of my printed ones around for any easy solution. In some attempt to maintain the clean lines in the collection, I kept my shoes simple with my booties. This also gave a nod to the black and white combos that made a brief appearance in the show. Finishing everything off, I accessorized with gold earrings, my simple gold rings and the one and only watch I own.
Don’t worry about any negative connotations that sometimes come with the idea of denim on denim. Not everyone likes the idea of eating goat cheese with everything (and I mean everything), but I swear it’s awesome. So whether you prefer darker washes or something on the lighter end of the spectrum, rocking jeans with even more jean material is completely doable and should be done whenever the opportunity presents itself.
