It’s true that trends come full circle. This is how retailers manage to market: “good style is eternal.” Yes, quality pieces can withstand the test of time. In a decade, a trend will re-emerge out of the shadows and your mother will tell you that she never should have thrown away her leg warmers. No wonder the fashion world weeps for “lack of innovation” and begs for “something different”. We live in a world that “recycles.”
Mixed denim ensembles give us all a reason to dig out those jackets from the ’90s and take just a second to fondly remember the simple days filled with Boy Meets World and Gilmore Girls. Since denim has become a “neutral” over the past few years, mixing shades is once again acceptable.
Interested in rocking the “Canadian Tuxedo,” but intimidated by fears of “bleh?” Take it from this Fashionista whose pairing simply works. The shades of denim she is wearing are contrasted, adding dimension and accentuating her shape. She chose to pair a faded boyfriend shirt with a slim, dark-wash jean.
The green satchel bag pops against the neutral denim tones in her ensemble. Featuring gunmetal hardware on the bag is extremely complimentary to her gray booties. Cohesion carries through to her vintage-inspired watch by featuring this shade of gray throughout her accent pieces. She successfully matched the bag with the neutral denim and allows the emerald green to be the focal point.
