By now, it’s probably pretty obvious that I have the biggest obsession with jeans. In my mind, the perfect pair of jeans is the key to a killer look. They’re versatile, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. What’s not to love? Denim is so great, why not wear a denim top with your jeans, to create the ultimate cool-girl ensemble. The denim-on-denim look has surged in popularity among Fashionista/o’s these past few seasons, and for good reason. Don’t be afraid to wear what some call the “Canadian Tuxedo.” it’s gotten a fashion forward update!
Wearing denim on the top and bottom doesn’t have to be complicated at all. It’s an outfit that’s so simple and easy, and that’s what makes it so appealing. In a fashion world full of excess and over-the-top ensembles, it’s refreshing to see and wear something that is more minimalistic. People gravitate towards styles and trends that are easy to pull off and easy to dress up or down. For the denim-on-denim trend, there are so many options to consider—such as wash, fit, color, and embellishment. Go for the classic blue on blue look, or opt for a pair of white, black, or even red jeans! Select a structured or breezy denim top to contrast with the fit of your jeans. You’ll be surprised when denim on denim is your new uniform!
This Fashionista is the perfect example of how to execute the denim on denim trend in a casual and cute way. She pairs her dark wash skinny jeans with a lighter blue chambray button down thrown over a slouchy gray tank and tied at the waist—so cool. Delicate jewelry enhances the overall simplicity of the outfit, as do her neutral fringe sandals. For a fun unexpected element, she finished her look with berry lipstick that pops against the blue tones of her look.
