STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dashing in Denim

I think it is safe to say that some of the fashion trends from the early 2000s are back. One of those trends happens to be denim-on-denim. When someone says denim-on-denim your mind may flashback to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s 2001 MTV VMA’s all denim ensembles. Fear not, this latest take on all denim is fresh and modern. The key is to mix different shades of denim from light to dark to faded. Don’t be afraid to play with different colors of denim on top and bottom. Plus, this fashion trend resonates with guys and girls!

This Fashionisto’s look blends a mix of light and faded blue denim. A powder blue casual button-up with rolled up sleeves is perfect for the summer. He paired it with loose fitting faded blue jeans. This look is effortless and most importantly it’s comfortable. For accessories he dressed it up with a silver and blue watch. On the other wrist he rocks brown and tan bracelets. Keeping with a similar color palette he wears blue and grey sneakers. Aviator sunglasses keep the warm Chicago summer sun at bay. By mixing casual and dressy elements he makes this all denim trend a style of his own.

There are many ways to style this shirt to dress it up or down. A dark wash fitted pair of jeans and oxfords would take this casual look and make it dressy. It could also be paired with a sport coat for those cool summer nights. Denim is so versatile, it can go with anything!
