STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Double Denim

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Double Denim

Designer Ritu Kumar once said that “Denim has always been an everyday symbol for style.”  Created during the gold rush in 1871 by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss, denim jeans continue to be a staple in every American’s wardrobe.  Over the past few months, Fashionistas/os have been straying away from the classic skinny jean in favor of something much more exciting.  Unique jean styles have been increasingly popular with trends such as cropped and flared, refinished seams, unfinished hems and light washes.  One of the most popular trends of the upcoming fall season is the denim on denim trend, in which one wears two garments made of denim in the same outfit.

This Fashionista was spotted on campus wearing a pair of vintage mom jeans, a graphic t-shirt and a denim jacket with the bottom hem sliced off.  To complete her outfit, she added a pair of high top converse, a black choker and circular sunglasses.  Her look screams high fashion while still looking very effortless.

While some people find this trend hard to wear, others avoid the denim on denim trend because they view it as an extreme fashion faux-pas.  This season, however, Fashionistas/os are beginning to see that twice the denim is twice as nice.  Whether your style is edgy, girly, vintage or anything in between, denim on denim can be easily be incorporated into any outfit.  If you are a double denim beginner, try wearing an outfit that consists of dark denim jeans, and a lighter denim top or jacket  For more advanced wearers, try experimenting with wearing the same shade of denim for both your top and bottom.
