Is denim on denim actually making a comeback? The questionable pairing has always conjured up mixed feelings in the fashion world. Some may even still be scarred from the likings of Britney and Justin circa 2001. However, looking from our favorite street stylists up to top designers, we have seen the double denim look certainly make its comeback.
We’ve all learned that some of the most praised styles come from taking a risk. Pairing our denim together can definitely be tricky, but when pulled off just right, the risk can be extremely rewarding.
This Fashionista took the risk and nailed it. Her denim on denim look is contagiously cool and a perfect example of wearing denim together in both a tasteful and stylish way. She has on a pair of distressed jeans cuffed up at the ankles with a loose, chambray blouse. If you haven’t already added the perfect chambray top to your wardrobe, keep snooping around because this relaxed piece is an essential this spring. She accessorizes with a simple pair of metallic wedges, adding a subtle feminine touch to complete this look.
The contrast between this Fashionista’s darker wash jeans and the much lighter blue hue of her shirt is a key player in the success of this look. When mixing denims together, it is important to keep in mind the shades you’re blending. Pairing a lighter shirt with a darker bottom can give you just the right amount contrast you need to break up a sea of blue jean.
How To: Still not convinced you can take the double denim dare? Try starting with a loose, denim blouse and tuck the front of the shirt into your jeans. This is another trick that will help give you contrast while also creating more shape in this monochromatic denim style.
